YEMA is proud to partner with MICHEL VAILLANT, the main character of the eponymous French comics series created in 1957, who will wear this exclusive Rallygraf chronograph in the upcoming comic book "Pikes Peak" that will be released on October 15th, 2021.
Equipped with a mechanical-quartz Seiko V64 caliber, this original timepiece is instantly recognizable by the unique design of its sub-dials, which inspire from the V-shaped front bumper of Michel Vaillant's first racing car featured in the historic "Le Grand Défi" comic book released in 1959.

The Rallygraf 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.
Designed for motor sports and speed, the circular-brushed steel bezel tachymeter measures the average speed over a given distance.
The original blue striped sub-dials' design inspired from the V-shaped front bumper of Michel Vaillant's first racing car featured in the historic "Le Grand Défi" comic book released in 1959.
Michel Vaillant's logo (printed at 6 o'clock) colours' are found on the white dial, blue sub-dials and red chronograph's hands.
The Rallygraf features a high quality 2.00 mm thick double domed K1 mineral crystal for a resolute vintage look.
The 39mm 316L stainless steel case immediately catches the eye with its refined polished finishing which beautifully contrasts with the circular-brushed effect of the bezel.
The Rallye-style black leather strap features two elegant red and blue stitches and a YEMA steel buckle.
Developed to withstand intensive use, the case-back also stands out for its high-end aesthetics. MICHEL VAILLANT logo is beautifully embossed with a hydraulic press with a polished / brushed effect.
The markers and hands are treated with a luminous coat in order to offer perfect readability in the dark.
