The Return of a Classic—Introducing the Yema Superman Héritage

The Return of a Classic—Introducing the Yema Superman Héritage

Watch

Yema may not be a commonly recognized name, yet it has a religion continuing in vintage authority circles. The brand was begun in 1948 by French watchmaker Louis Belmont, and in the time since Yema has existed in some structure, in any event, being possessed by Seiko for 20 or so years. Today, Yema is back under French possession, and to commend the firm’s 70th commemoration this year, Yema has delivered a heritage release of their most notable model, the Superman plunge watch.

The Superman appeared, thinking back to the ’60s. While not momentous in its plan, it is without a doubt an incredible looking jumper with a touch of unmistakable energy. So, the Superman has one component that is unique—the bezel lock framework. This framework comprises of a little, L-molded metal brace that slides over the crown tube and sits on the bezel squeezing against it. At the point when the crown is in a bad way down, it bolts the brace onto the bezel and holds the bezel back from being incidentally turned.

The Superman Héritage is an unwavering propagation of the vintage model—bezel lock what not. The tempered steel case comes in at 39 millimeters wide and 14 millimeters thick, an incredible size for the little wrist group. This is another case (no joke expected) where fortunately the size was not scaled up to clumsy proportions.

The dark dial includes an exemplary Submariner design, with Super-LumiNova dabs, bars, and triangle at 12, and there’s a date window at three. The lume-filled handset is unadulterated retro legacy, with a thin, bolt tipped minutes hand and a stoplight-tipped seconds hand.

The gem is domed mineral glass, with a possibility for domed sapphire precious stone at extra expense. The watch comes fitted to a steel wristband with a deployant fasten and plunging augmentation. It’s fueled by the pervasive, Swiss-made ETA 2824-2 caliber.

As we’ve noted before on Worn & Wound, the heritage craze is giving no indications of easing back down with a wide range of brands capitalizing on their back inventories. I without a doubt, have no complaints. In addition to the fact that it makes vintage style accessible with current vigor, however it gives lesser realized brands like Yema the vehicle to bring their image once again into the spotlight. The Superman Héritage is sure to do precisely that for Yema. It’s a pleasant little watch that stays consistent with its set of experiences and makes certain to engage easygoing aficionados and Yema stalwarts alike. 

The Superman Héritage is evaluated at about $1,100 (as of this composition), and the discretionary sapphire precious stone will add about $175 on top of that.  Yema
