In the early 1960's, YEMA started to work on a professional dive watch project designed for the general public. In 1963 YEMA proudly launched the very first 990 feet water resistant non-military dive watch, something revolutionary at that time, hence the nickname Superman.
This Superman Heritage 63 Limited Edition pays tribute to the historic model by recreating the original design and the professional diving features which have nowadays become essential on most dive watches. The screw-down crown, the crown guards and YEMA's proprietary bezel-lock designed as a triple safety when underwater, made of the Superman an unique diver back in the 1960's.
In line with YEMA's Heritage collection spirit, this reissue features a sapphire bezel reminiscent of the vintage acrylic / bakelite ones, as well as the iconic “shovel” seconds hand of the Superman.
Les aiguilles et les index sont revêtus de Super-LumiNova. La Superman héritage Blue offre donc une parfaite lisibilité dans l'obscurité.
This Swiss movement is mostly recognised for its reliability. With 26 Ruby jewels, it beats at 28,800 A/h and offers a power reserve of 38 hours
The unidirectional sapphire count-up bezel with black aluminium insert ensures an unique retro look similar to the vintage models
The unique Superman bezel-lock at 3 o'clock has proven very useful to professional divers and is found on all Superman models since 1963

The 1970's iconic chromed seconds hand with its head shaped like a shovel adds a distinct Heritage touch to this historic reissue

I was lucky enough to receive the 39mm version of this watch early, and I must say, it is exactly the type of dive watch I was looking for. The aesthetics of the watch hit all the right marks. I especially love the minty green lume and the retro 6, 9, 12. The bezel lock also adds a lot of character to the watch. The dial is very well balanced, and has a very clean date window that does not disrupt the overall symmetry of the dial. I originally purchased the watch on the steel bracelet, which is extremely well made. However, I think the watch also pairs well with a NATO strap if you want it to have a bit lower profile, since the domed crystal and bezel stand fairly tall. The only problem I have with this watch is that the lume on the bezel is very faint when compared to the lume on the hour markers. Other than that, this watch is unbeatable when you consider the quality of the case, the Swiss Sellita movement, and the 300 meter water resistance. Yema customer support has also been extremely helpful when answering my questions online about my orders. I give the Superman 63 and Yema as a brand Five stars out of Five!
