The new Superman Heritage U.S. Edition comes with a distinct 41mm case and a black dial. It also recreates some classic features of the original model, oversized square markers and the iconic "shovel" seconds hand. The sapphire, scratch-resistant bezel recalls the ancient glossy bakelite resin bezel. The steel case has been refined and slightly extended to accommodate a Sellita SW200-1 Swiss movement. With its emblematic Yema bezel-lock mechanism and with a 990 feet / 300 meters water-resistance, the Superman is designed for underwater diving. The domed crystal contributes to the unique and resolutely vintage look.
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 timepiece keeps perfect time, it is a very nice quality piece,only reason I did not give 5 star is because of the bracelet, it lacks quality , clasp is far from great and the links next to case do not swivel correct and tend to lock out of position, easy fix but not what was expected on a 1200usd piece, The watch looks great and I use it with the black rubber band I order at the same time, overall very happy since I wanted to use it with the band anyway and bracelet even though as I mention ,is not to my liking,it is not important to me.
I really love this new edition with the Sapphire bezel that replicate the Bakelite style from the past. Well executed Yema.
I initially bought the Superman Heritage 39mm watch but found it too small for my taste on my 18.5 cm wrist. Upon returning that watch, I paid extra to upgrade to the Superman Heritage US Edition and am quite happy with my choice. The size and weight of this watch are great on my wrist. Also, spending the extra money to upgrade to the US edition was worth it to me. The raised hour markers add texture to the watch face and almost appear to be floating when I look at the watch in the sunlight.
