This exclusive edition has been designed jointly with France's Air Force. Inspired by the iconic Superman Heritage, this exclusive military tool watch comes with a steel bezel, a matt black dial, black PVD coated hands and date disc wheel mirroring France's Air Force dark camouflage pattern. The blue-white-red French national insignia used on military aircraft since World War I beautifully replaces the 6 o'clock index and is also stamped on the crown under a crystal coating, while the French Air Force logo is found on the dial and the case-back.
The Superman French Air Force Black is made available with a mineral domed crystal making it more scratch-resistant and vintage looking
The stunning metal accents of the embossed white markers along the printed dark red French Air Force logo and the colored national insignia at 6 o'clock create a striking contrast against the matt black dial
A black PVD treatment is applied to the hour and minute hands as well as the iconic 1970's seconds hand with its head shaped like a shovel
The French Air Force national insignia is stamped on the crown under a crystal coating
Back in the 1970's, the first YEMA watch made for the French Air Force was designed to equip their Diver Rescuers team but was also used by fighter pilots, hence the dual SEA-AIR features of this unique military tool watch
The 316L Steel caseback proudly displays French Air Force crest beautifully embossed with a hydraulic press
The 316 L stainless steel bracelet with secure-lock comes with a divers extension so it can adjust it easily and quickly over a diving suit

The watch is stunning on the wrist, the bezel, case and strap are finished beautifully and the Matt black face works perfectly with the steel. The bracelet is easy to size and very comfortable, the canvas strap is also a nice addition and is made very easy to fit with the drilled lugs on the case. Quartz movement is very accurate and lines up with the markers, I really cannot find fault with the watch, only thing I would change is the lugs being 20mm in width rather than 19mm just because my nato straps don’t quite fit, however the canvas strap or more than capable of meeting my needs, great watch all round
Customer service on website was very responsive. Watch arrived in good time. It came in a nice box and with a free watch roll which I appreciated. Watch itself was as I imagined. Very nice finishing. I feel the mineral crystal does make the watch look a bit plastic-y but overall the watch looks ace. Love the canvas strap. I have 6 inch wrist and was scared there would be too much excess strap but fits nicely. I saw and read lots of Yema reviews and heard they had a few quality control issues and after sales customer service issues but so far my experience has been great. Thanks.
This watch exceeded my expectations upon unboxing it. It is an absolutely beautiful watch, the domed crystal creates a visually appealing effect. The easily sized bracelet and is perfect for my wrist while being very comfortable. All the details are perfectly executed. Definitely on par with any mid-term luxury watches but at an entry level luxury watch price. If you like tool watches, you'll love this one. The locking bezel is a relatively unique feature sure to be appreciated by its owner when needed.
The watch is quite pretty. It's so beautiful that I want to buy another black version. I want to buy it again.
This is my second French Air Force watch - I also own a black automatic. It is great to have a quartz in the collection as you can just grab it and go. I also feel like it's wearing something a government would actually issue. I like the 70s vibe of the stainless steel version. The bracelet is very comfortable with excellent finishing. The only downside is that quartz should be the same height as the automatic version because the bezel is hard to grip being so close to the case.
