The PEARLDIVER is a professional diving watch strongly inspired by the YEMA Navygraf II of the 1970s, in particular the original bezel markers, the black coated hands and the white lollipop seconds hand. The PEARLDIVER is equipped with our new In-house Caliber YEMA2000 and a Hesalite Superdome crystal in the pure tradition of vintage models.
The second-generation in-house Caliber YEMA2000 is powered by optimized components yielding slightly better performance than similar calibers, offering a Daily Rate of +/- 10 s/d and a power reserve of 42h.
Oversized, slightly curved, rotating divers’ watch bezel marked in five-minute increments. Aluminium insert for a neo-vintage look.
A black PVD treatment is applied to the hour and the arrow-shaped minute hands. High-contrast white lollipop sweep seconds hand.
The creamy hue of the printed markers and hands resemble that of original-condition vintage watches, creating a striking contrast against the matt black, perfectly symmetrical no-date dial.
The PEARLDIVER features a massive 3.50mm double domed Hesalite crystal for a resolute vintage look. The Hesalite proposes a charming, softer and more gentle luster than sapphire. In certain angles, the curvature of the Hesalite distorts the seconds track around the edge of the dial in a particular way that isn't found on most modern watches.

The PEARLDIVER is the very first model designed by one of our fans via our collaborative platform YEMA CoLabs. Marin Ravenel, the project creator, is a watch collector fond of vintage dive watches from most renowned brands. Marin's PEARLDIVER is inspired from the YEMA Navygraf II from the 1970's, a vintage model too often neglected for its particular case, which has been completely redesigned to give it a more modern look. The watch offers a perfect vertical symmetry with its no-date dial and non-graduated bezel that displays the same markers and symbols on both sides.The superdome hesalite crystal from the 1970's returns to YEMA's catalog with the PEARLDIVER reinforcing the vintage toolwatch look. With its contained 38mm size and a reasonable 46mm lug-to-lug, the Pearl Diver is the perfectly fitting neo-vintage toolwatch for wrists up to 7.5" (19cm).

Really glad I bought the Pearldiver. It's the perfect size and has a really retro feel with the peach colour lume and aluminium bezel. It will age well since it looks vintage out of the box.
Love this watch, great specs, finishing, story and looks. One of the best dive watch options in this price range.
This watch looks fantastic on the wrist! With a 38mm case and a compact lug to lug, the Pearl Diver is a great watch for those with smaller wrists. For those with larger wrists who like a vintage look and feel, don't fret. This watch is for you too. At 38mm, those with larger wrists can get that vintage look at a size that still provides adequate wrist presence compared to 36mm vintage sports watches. Marin Ravenel's and Yema's decision to utilize a hesalite crystal was a great call. It adds a warmth and vintage aesthetic that you just can't capture with sapphire crystal. The lume is decent, and the bezel action is top notch with zero back play. I only wish the bezel was made more functional through the addition of minute markers. Nonetheless, the bezel insert as currently designed adds to the overall symmetry of this timepiece. The Pearl Diver would benefit from a push-button clasp over the supplied clasp, but overall, the bracelet is very comfortable and its satin-like finish provides continuity with the case finishing. Shipping from France to the U.S. was very fast. Which is a good thing since it meant that I didn't have to wait long to get this fabulous watch on my wrist!
Perfect everything. I’ll be purchasing another Yema
Yema’s customer experience is brilliant. This is how all brands should operate. It doesn’t hurt that my Pearldiver came with free international shipping, a free leather travel case and free tropical strap! I am a Yema fan for life!
