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. This three-hand movement variation uses the revolving disc method for displaying the time: The outer ring for hours and the innermost for minutes, the discs being stacked on top of each other.
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).

The quality is top notch and the proportions really give it a unique look and feel. The YEMA cal 2000 is a great movement.
Very pleasantly surprised by this watch. Love the domed crystal, the layout, the in-house movement, and the size. Everything is very nicely finished, lines are crisp, brushing well-executed, dial printing high-quality. Bracelet is very comfortable and I like the unique look. Mine is running -/+2 seconds/day. As a side note, I had an interaction with customer service which was a positive experience. Very happy with this purchase!
This is a beautiful watch, born through the yema colab programme. Very happy with the purchase
Die Uhr ist sportlich und elegant, für viele Anlässe passend. Leider bin ich etwas unzufrieden, da sie schnell wieder stehen bleibt. Mal sehen...
The stainless steel bracelet appears to be adjustable however when I attempted to remove a link or two it was impossible to get the pin that joins the adjustable links out. I cannot wear the watch because it neatly falls off my wrist. I’m not a skinny guy but the adjustments in the clasp don’t tighten the bracelet enough. I emailed the company last week but have not heard back. Hopefully I’ll hear soon and they will instruct me on how to remove those testy pins.
