    Seeking info on my Le Jour PVD 7750 with world time bezel

    Hi all,

    Several years ago, I owned a lovely Le Jour 7750 PVD chronograph — but sold it to finance the purchase of another watch. I soon missed it. So I had been on the look out for a new one. When I saw this one on eBay with the world time bezel a few months ago I jumped on it. Bought it for about 300 bucks. I’ve never seen another one with a world time bezel like this, and doing some googling I can only find one or two others out there. Upon inspection, the case shape appears slightly different from (and smaller than) the old Le Jour PVD 7750 I owned (the common type you see often). Strangely, despite seeming smaller than that watch, the lugs on this one are bigger — 22 mm. How rare are these? Any information you have on this specific version is greatly appreciated!

    Hi all - anyone with knowledge of these able to chime in? I’m considering having the PVD redone and the crystal swapped. Wondering if it is worth the expense?

    I would personally leave the case as is, it looks nicely distressed and matches distressed crowns and pushers.
    Crystal swap is really worth it!

    That's so unusual and cool! I used to own the "normal" version with tachymeter scale. Does the internal world time bezel rotate with the crown?

    These were interesting pieces, several companies used this world timer case.

    I have the Gallet version, in the more rare raw stainless steel, although they did PVD them as well.


    My model has the 17 jewel Valjoux 7750.

    Thx! The crown at 8 o’clock rotates the world time bezel.
