Yema Superman Heritage Automatic Dive Watch - Black Dial - 39mm
The Superman Heritage is a reissue of one of Yema’s most iconic dive watches from the 1970’s.
The design perfectly blends Yema’s unique retro look with the build quality and specifications of a modern dive watch.
This particular model has a 39mm steel case, with a black dial, and vintage coloured lume to enhance the classic feel of the watch.
The watch is water-resistant to 300m and features a domed sapphire crystal for the highest clarity and toughest scratch-resistance.
The Superman Heritage features Yema’s distinctive bezel-lock mechanism, which stops the bezel from being accidentally rotated when diving.
Whilst the case is a recreation of the vintage model, the watch is powered by the modern Sellita SW200-1 Swiss automatic movement. The 26-jewel movement has a power reserve of 38 hours.
Why This Watch?
- The Superman Heritage has an iconic design, that’s instantly recognisable as Yema’s.
- With a reliable Swiss automatic movement, a sapphire crystal, and good water resistance, the Superman Heritage makes for an excellent tool watch.
- The hands and markers are applied with Super-LumiNova C3 to ensure legibility in the dark.
About The Brand
French brand Yema has been making watches since 1948, when it was founded by Henry Louis Belmont and would go on to be the top French exporter of watches in 1966-68.
The brand has produced many reliable models over the decades, such as the Yachtingraf & Rallygraf, but the most famous of which is the Superman. Introduced in 1963, with its iconic bezel lock and 300m water resistance, the Yema Superman was chosen to equip French Air Force pilots. Yema have continued this military history today, with partnerships with both the French Air Force and Marine Nationale.
In 2009 Yema launched their first in-house calibre, making it one of the few brands to offer watches with an in-house movement for less than £1,000. Today the brand are on their second generation of movements, with the three hand YEMA2000 and the GMT YEMA3000.
