The new Superman Heritage Quartz recreates the classic features of the original Superman reference 53.00.16 model from the 1970s. With its iconic YEMA bezel-lock mechanism and with its 660 feet water resistance, the Superman is designed for underwater diving. The steel case has been redesigned in 3D as per the original model then modified to accommodate a Ronda 515 movement. The domed crystal contributes to the unique and resolutely vintage look.
316L steel unidirectional count-up bezel with a 0-60 scale black aluminium insert to track diver's bottom time
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 iconic chromed seconds hand with its head shaped like a shovel is exactly the same used in the 1970's original 53.00.16 model
The 316L Steel caseback proudly displays YEMA's historic crest beautifuly embossed with a hydraulic press
The Superman Heritage 316 L stainless steel bracelet with secure-lock comes with a divers extension so you can adjust it easily and quickly over a diving suit
The hands and markers are treated with Swiss Super-LumiNova so as to offer perfect readability in low light conditions
Les aiguilles et les index sont revêtus de Super-LumiNova. La Superman héritage Blue offre donc une parfaite lisibilité dans l'obscurité.

I am so happy with my new Yema Superman in fact this is my second Yema watch Customer service is the best
This watch looks fantastic, and both the components and assembly quality are first rate! Couldn't be happier!!
I am a massive fan of 60s design vintage skin diver watches. The characteristics of this wonderful design is the classic bubble curvy crystal, the thin construction, the small (to me normal) size and the simplicity of the dial and classic Omega/Submariner style hands. In the last couple of years I've been searching everywhere for a quartz true skin diver tool watch but with no luck, the few available are only mechanical and cost a fortune and fewer have the date (to me a watch with no date is not a watch). Other quartz vintage style are really either too big or with a flat crystal and/or with a very poor construction. This Heritage from Yema ticks absolutely all the boxes for a true skin diver watch from the 60s but with the added benefits and practicality of a quartz movement. I can use this watch everywhere, in the sea, in the gym without worrying too much to break or loose a £1000+ watch; a true every day watch. I've been hesitant in buying it before because of the locking mechanism that prevents to use the bezel as a timer, but finally with a discount incentive from Yema I bought it (the blue version is wonderful) and all I had to do deactivate the mechanism is slightly bend with some tweezers the tiny wings that block the bezel and voila', I can now use the crown as a timer and keep the characteristic locking mechanism, no problems. The modern version is a proper diver bezel not like the original, this one is unidirectional. Thanks a lot Yema for making this available to us. The finish is absolutely perfect, the only difference with the mechanical expensive version is the brushed finish and the use of a sapphire and bezel crystal on the mechanical one. My wish is that also the quartz version would have a sapphire and bezel crystal, a better quartz movement with an EOL (end of life) battery mechanism and if Yema makes something like that in brass too it would be a dream....but hey you can't have everything in life. Thanks Yema!
