The green dial model was sold out within a few days but will be luckily restocked again. Just as Le Jour’s previous retro design inspired models like the Vintage Diver and Seacolt GMT, the New Hammerhead dive watch collection takes its design elements from the 1970s sports watches and combines it with modern technology and materials. The distinctive cushion case with a mix of satin brush and shiny polish finish, an eye-pleasing sunburst-dial with classic styled- and good visible hands and indices and a lume applied ceramic bezel will start growing on you quickly.

A very typical signature from Le Jour is the detailed finish of the case back. Most dive watches have a plain and just brushed case back, but for LeJour quality and detail of the back are as important as of the front of their watches. A hammerhead shark is beautifully incorporated into the case back to match the model name. Model- and technical specifications are laser engraved around it. The lug to lug dimension of 48mm fits a variety of wrist sizes very well and the overall size is well balanced due to it’s softly shaped and thoughtfully finished cushion case. The Hammerhead is a compelling dive watch of retro flair and vibe with enduring aesthetics that blends to a perfect daily wear timepiece
