This new-old stock LeJour pocket watch comes with its original box - LeJour was a large manufacture of pocket watches in the 1960s, and was a French brand founded in 1965, and it operated through the early 1980's; LeJour was the American name for the France-based Yema watch company. Per renowned Heuer website, OnTheDash, Heuer manufactured LeJour chronographs under a private-label arrangement in the 1960’s through early 1980’s.
During the 1970/80s, LeJour specialized in more affordable versions of watches nearly identical to Heuer and Porsche Design/Orfina offerings of the era - such as the "Poor Man's Heuer," LeJour's popular Valjoux-powered chronograph, which was identical to the Pasadena save for the absence of the Heuer logo. These “poor man’s” Heuer represent an interesting facet of Heuer’s history and also provide a way for individuals to collect these chronographs on a more reasonable budget.
