FRENCH AIR & SPACE FORCE OFFICIAL STRAP
The French Air & Space Force military are equipped with an official space strap
Made of 316L stainless steel black PVD Milanese mesh for greater flexibility.
Built in collaboration with the French Air & Space Force, this military-grade, fighter jet pilot's chronograph is equipped with Seiko's VK64 hybrid mechanism and a rotating UTC bezel that allows reading of a second time zone. Designed as a professional time instrument for the military, this unique tool watch resembles those navigation instruments that can be found on-board fighter jet cockpits offering high contrast and good legibility in all lighting conditions.
The Flygraf French Air and Space Force is powered by a Seiko VK64 Mechanical-Quartz hybrid caliber. The time measurement complication is operated by a quartz movement while the chronograph's hand is controlled by a mechanical module that ticks multiple times per second, perceived by the eyes as a sweeping motion.
Strongly inspired by flight instrumentation of military aircraft cockpits, the dial offers uncompromising legibility, an absolute necessity for professional fighter jet pilots.
The circular brushed stainless steel bidirectional bezel with 12 hours graduation, provides an easy way to track a second time zone without the need for a GMT movement.
The singular shape of the hands strongly ressemble those found on-board 1950's military aircraft cockpit clocks.
The 41mm 316L stainless steel case has a black PVD coating with a polished finish in elegant contrast with the bezel's circular brushed effect.
The French Air & Space Force national insignia is beautifully embedded on the crown under a crystal coating.
Featuring a high quality 2.00mm thick K1 mineral double dome crystal for a resolute vintage look.
Made of 316L stainless steel black PVD Milanese mesh for greater flexibility. The clasp is engraved with YEMA’s logo and easily adjusts to fit all wrists.
For the first time in its history, the French Air & Space Force military are equipped with an official space strap. Jointly designed with the military, this strap is made of two-piece black nylon.
The 316L stainless steel caseback proudly displays French Air & Space Force crest beautifully embossed with a hydraulic press.
The hands and markers are treated with a luminous coat of SUPERLUMINOVA® BGW9, offering perfect readability in the dark.

The first YEMA French Air Force tool watches were designed back in the 1970's to equip the Air Force Diver Rescuers team during helicopter-borne sea rescue missions. Later on, the watches were also used by fighter pilots, making of the YEMA Superman a unique SEA-AIR military tool watch.
The French Air & Space Forces having recently merged, this marks the launch of a new collaboration with YEMA through the release of a new collection of military tool watches specifically designed for fighter jet pilots.
YEMA's signature #TimeofHeroes dates from 1970. It reflects the history and values of the brand and what it stands for. It tells the adventures of remarkable sportsmen and explorers who have achieved the extraordinary under the most extreme conditions, with a YEMA watch on their wrists. Since the 1970s, YEMA equips the French Air Force with indestructible, high-precision timepieces.
“France's Air & Space Force is very proud to collaborate with French watchmaker YEMA in crafting professional tool watches specifically designed for our soldiers and made available to the general public.”
Colonel Stéphane SPET
Spokesperson for France's Air & Space Army Chief of Staff
Head of SIRPA Air & Space

I've enjoyed wearing the Flygraf French Air & Space Force UTC Black for the past couple of weeks. It's extremely comfortable on my 7.25 inch wrist. As a quartz hybrid it's accurate and tough. Two small complaints: as a hybrid chrono the second hand doesn't move unless you're using the chrono function to time. This results in a slightly odd visual presentation where the minute and hour hands move but the second hand doesn't. This is my first chrono so perhaps just something to get used to. I'm also not a fan of the red, white, and blue crown...I know it's an homage but it's a little cartoony looking and makes the watch look a bit juvenile. Overall, I like the comfort and functionality of the watch as a travel watch but probably won't be my daily driver.
Très belle montre , totalement conforme à mes attentes. Finition impeccable. Et un service client qui réponds en 5 mn à mon mail, la nuit, pour le réglage du bracelet. Bravo !
J'ai reçu ma flygraf très rapidement et c'est une magnifique montre Juste une petite déception c'est la lisibilité de nuit sans allumer la lumière pas possible de voir l'heure
Montre très agréable à porter et à utiliser avec une lisibilité parfaite.Sobre elle fournit les paramètres essentiels au vol, donc parfait pour un pilote. Dommage que le bracelet spatial Armée de l’Air n’ai pas été fourni en même temps que la montre.
Très bon contacts et conseils Magnifique montre. Livraison rapide
