A new elegant diver limited to just 1,000 models...

Yema goes back in time during this early summer and drives you to the 1960s by presenting to you the Superman Heritage 63. A name not picked by accident as the first Superman timepiece was created in 1963. On this occasion, the French watchmaker brings back this mythical and innovative watch that was at the origin of Yema’s greatest saga and is offering a limited edition of 1000 pieces both in 39mm and 41mm.

In the early 1960s Yema worked on a professional diver’s watch concept with the goal to market it to the general public for the first time ever. In 1963, the first Superman was born. This watch sets itself apart with its unique design, its famous bezel-lock and at the same time becomes the first watch of Yema’s most appealing collection. A 2017 International Scuba Diving Hall of Fame honoree, Jason is a professional scuba diver and underwater photographer featured in many print publications including the iconic National Geographic.

Jason is an iconic figure in the Cayman Islands underwater community, he's at the origin of several projects which aim at protecting the delicate marine life found in the waters of the Cayman Islands and promoting sustainable tourism. For this unique release, the Superman 63 was designed and thoroughly tested with the support and input of Jason!

To differentiate this new Heritage timepiece, this limited edition has the iconic “Shovel” seconds hand of YEMA’s iconic divers watches as well as a sapphire bezel to reproduce the shiny effect that the bakelite of that time used to offer.
