This neo-vintage sports watch boasts the second-generation In-House Caliber YEMA 2000, optimized for enhanced performance. With 29 jewels, a frequency of 4Hz, and a 42-hour power reserve, the automatic movement ensures precision and reliability. The bidirectional rotor on ball bearings contributes to its efficiency, providing a daily rate of +/- 10 s/d. The new movement hand design enhances resistance to shocks and vibrations, a testament to YEMA's commitment to quality.
The Urban Flygraf’s 39mm angular case draws inspiration from a YEMA model from the 1980s, creating a distinct aesthetic. With a thickness of 11.7mm and a lug-to-lug length of 47mm, the case features beveled edges with a polished finish contrasting the satin-brushed case. The rotating bezel combined with the inner rehaut of this Flygraf allows for a multitude of in-flight calculations. It is thus possible to measure your average speed, average fuel consumption of an aircraft, or even convert nautical miles to miles, and miles to kilometers.
Iconic retro-style case
The dial, beneath a flat sapphire crystal, exhibits a completely brushed black dial, inspired by the fuselages of vintage airplanes featuring the iconic logo at 6 o'clock of the Flygraf models since the 1960s. The white indexes provide contrast, while the yellow sweep hand and yellow inner rehaut ensure perfect readability. Super-LumiNova Grade A on markers and hands ensures optimal readability.
Turning the watch over reveals a screw-down case back adorned with YEMA's historic crest, treated through microblasting processes for precise finishing. The timepiece comes with a 20mm steel bracelet featuring a vertical brushed finish and a double safety folding clasp, inspired by a vintage YEMA bracelet from the 80s.
Super-LumiNova Grade A to ensure increased readability
