Superman Heritage Blue - Leather - Ltd Ed 500pcs

Yema is a name that was born in 1948, created by Henry Louis Belmont, who was a graduate from the National Watchmaking School of Besancon in 1931. The name stayed till today and lingered very well especially within the dive-watch community, a name that is synonymous with fine French horology.


Mr. Belmont himself created Yema who specialized in the manufacturing well-built watches at an honest price (Gnomon’s philosophy), which led the brand to take off during the 1960s era. Some of them do ring a bell for vintage watch collectors, for an instant, the 1960s Flygraf pilot chronograph (air), Rallygraf racing chronograph (land) and Yachtingraf regatta chronograph (sea). Further, let’s not forget the one and only diver collection that stamps this French maestro into the watchmaking legacy- the legendary Superman diver.

Today, we like to introduced you to the latter that Yema had brought back from their archive. The brand reintroduced the Superman collection and what we have right here is the true vintage-inspired model; the Yema Superman Heritage Blue - Leather.

Before we get started, we like to point out that Yema truly focus on the brand’s iconic diver to craft a faithful homage.They in fact use 3D-modeling on an actual vintage Superman diver from that era  during the inception period of the design process.

Faithful to its predecessor, the 300m water resistance Yema Superman heritage Blue is a direct reissue of their famous diver Ref. 24.11.7 that features the unique sunburst blue dial, with its true to size 39mm steel case, featuring straight pointy lugs but still keeping the original lug to lug distance of 48mm, and 14mm thick. This Blue retro-diver is a numbered edition of 500 pieces.

Yema's signature locking device for the bezel

Just like the 1960s model, the most iconic design feature of the Superman that sets it different from others, is the locking device for the bezel, located at 3 o’clock, in-between the bezel and the crown.

How it works? Basically it was a piece of engineering where once the time is set and bezel rotated to the position one favours, the crown then locks the bezel with the locking device by having the crown screw back in. Simple yet effective to prevent any unnecessary movement on the bezel.

The sunburst blue dial and unique handset is ode to their past with the same quirky three dimensional applied metal-blocks, logo and down to the “traffic-light” style second hand. All of which are applied with luminous that glows well in low-light situations. All can be seen through a high-domed sapphire crystal that gives the retro charm while with durability at forefront.

Domed Sapphire crystal radiates the vintage charm of 70s divers

Yema did not stop at the case design, they intentionally paired with a pure black soft calf leather strap with front "french" colourway stitching. This accompaniment completes the whole package and its downright perfect with deep reverence to french watchmaking.

The Yema Superman Heritage Blue - Leather is powered by the Swiss Sellita SW200-1, boasting 38 hours power reserve that beats at 28,800bph, letting one to enjoy the smooth sweeping seconds. All these are protected thoroughly under a solid  screwed-in caseback.

Exact re-issue hour lame plots and handset

In all, the Superman Heritage Blue - Leather is a true modern re-issue that is nearly identical to the vintage model, with few major upgrades like the improvements of the case finishing and movement. What’s more intriguing is the significant parallel between this reissue and the vintage model is their price. Like the vintage model, both are legit tool watch that offered a good value for those willing to venture outside the usual suspects in the market.
