MARINE NATIONALE OFFICIAL STRAP
Marine Nationale parachute single-pass strap as a gift
The YEMA Navygraf is the Official Watch of the Marine Nationale. Designed by French Navy personnel for marine professionals, the Navygraf Marine Nationale is military-grade, rugged and resistant, able to withstand the harshest conditions and travel across the most unforgiving seas. This new Navygraf retains most of the characteristics of the original Heritage model but with the official colours and logo of the Marine Nationale.
The iconic markers are shaped in the form of an exclamation mark, a distinct signature of the 1970's vintage Navygraf model. The matt blue dial and the golden Navygraf mention, proudly display the Marine Nationale official colours along their logo 6 o'clock.
Scratch-resistant K1 mineral glass bezel with blue insert and matt white plating to mirror the glossy rendering of the vintage bakelite resin bezel. K1 mineral glass is a hardened mineral glass which is twice harder than normal mineral glass.
39mm case with integrated crown guards. 316L stainless steel with a brushed effect.
Screw-down crown. French Navy's vintage anchor embossed.
The 316L stainless steel band with secure lock comes with a divers extension so it can be easily adjusted over a diving suit.
This iconic strap was originally handmade by French Marine Nationale combat divers in the 1970’s. The resourceful frogmen fashioned straps from used parachutes by recovering the elastic webbing to sew them back on and adapt them to their diver watches. For years, this type of strap has remained purely military, nowadays it’s a great alternative to NATO straps.
The unique single pass design offers the security of a regular NATO strap but wears slimmer on the wrist as only one layer of elastic goes under the watch head.
The adjustable ladder buckle design enables to easily adjust the length of the strap individually, guaranteeing a perfect fit on wrists from 6” to 9” (15cm to 23cm).
Engraved with Marine Nationale’s official logo and made in brushed stainless steel, the buckle is slim but strong enough to stand up to wear and tear.
Crafted from military-grade elastic parachute webbing for extreme comfort and moisture regulation, these straps make for a quality, slimmer alternative to a NATO design.
The 316L Steel caseback proudly displays Marine Nationale crest beautifully embossed with a hydraulic press.
The hands, dial and bezel markers are treated with Swiss SUPER-LUMINOVA® BGW9 so as to offer perfect readability in low light conditions.

Amazing watch with fast shipping
Très satisfait par la livraison de la montre. Le délai de livraison est très raisonnable et la livraison est sécurisée. La montre est conforme à mes attentes. Juste une remarque : il serait bien qu'elle arrive régler à la bonne heure.
There is so much I love about this watch ! I went for the quartz for easy maintenance as I live in Australia. It has a beautifully balanced case design and size with a modern retro feel and understated dive elegance. I Love the dark navy blue dial.& bezel with crisp white hands and markers, it’s close to perfect. The finish and bracelet fit perfectly with the design. I only wish they had kept the sapphire glass and bezel and used a slightly higher quality steel band as I found it a real challenge to size. I would of happily paid a little extra. This is my third Yema and my favourite,I absolutely love it , I’ll be back ! 4.5⭐️
Received just today the Quartz Navgraf Marine Nationale. As always not a single issue with the order to delivery. Ordered last Thursday, got it today, Monday. Hey UPS you need to ask DHL how's that done? Now, the instrument, finish is flawless. The satin case gives this piece that real tool watch look. Then the dial is applied, not a bunch of little bling blings. The deep dark blue dial is uniform from all angles and the white markers, scale and hands scream tactical. The Marine Nationale @ 6:00 just adds to the look of a military time keeper. I also find the used material for the crystal refreshing, not that sapphire is not cool. But you might see it in a different light, if it shatters while exposed to water. Not that I am affiliated in anyway w/Yema, I currently own five of their offerings two automatics and three quartz. And of the five, this one flips my propeller. I will add this, was not too impressed with the faux parachute strap. Once you get ahold of the real thing, cheap copies do not work. And not that this band is cheap, $69.00 on site. But once you have a NDC, we'll you will know what I am talking about. Sadly I have not found NDC in 19mm! I replaced the SS bracelet with a extra Yema Dive Strap. I have ordered a Gas Gas Blue Spit Fire Velcro for it. So let's sum it up. You will not regret purchasing a Yema Navgraf MN, no matter whichever version gets your attention. Now eyeing that MN GMT.
The craftsmanship is absolutely amazing. I chose the quartz version for timekeeping accuracy and for not having to send the watch back to France from Australia for servicing. Ever since I got my Yema watch, I have not worn my Sinn diving watch once and I will put for sale. I am really impressed. Well done Yema!
