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 Yachtingraf'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 bi-directional bezel, with a 60-minute graduated aluminum insert, showcases a specific 15-minute countdown in French colorway, marking for regatta race starts. The dial, beneath a flat sapphire crystal, exhibits a vertical gradient from light to deep blue, complemented by contrasting inner chapter rings for minute and hour markers. Super-LumiNova Grade A on markers and hands ensures optimal readability.
