The LeJour Flygraph was produced by Yema in France for the American market during the 1970s. Powered by a Valjoux 7736 Chronograph movement, it had an unusual case shape, measuring 46.5mm lug to lug and 40.5 mm wide. An excellent example of the playful and creative design aesthetics of sports watches from this era, the LeJour Flygraph is an eye-catching piece.

tritium lume on the hour markers and hands.  The Flygraf is powered by the manual wind Valjoux 7736 movement.
