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.

So Close to Perfect

As I write this, my newly delivered Superman Heritage Quartz on my wrist ticks away absolutely silently for a quartz. The finishing on the case is a wonderful, even brushing which I greatly prefer to a polished surface as it easily hides small scuffs from every day wear. The dial is clean and crisp, the lume strong and evenly applied, and the hands legible even at a glance. A locking bezel took a few seconds to get used to, however the crown threads perfectly and the lock holds firm without wobble. This watch is a fantastic value for money considering the size, the looks, and wearability/versatility of it. There's just two small things that keep it from a 5 star for me. First, the bezel insert is not centered on 12, with the pip arrow sitting slightly to the right. It may not be worth a fuss for everyone, but on a $400 watch I do expect QC to see and fix that before it leaves. The second is that second hand does not line up with the minute track, which is not really an issue on a sweeping auto since it has the 6 or 8 ticks a second, however when there's only one tick per line if it doesn't line up it's obvious. Once again I'd have expected this to be seen, however it is not a deal breaker by any means, and it's quite possible on most examples it does indeed line up. The only person who is going to notice these things is the person wearing it, and I can easily deal with them. They will not stop me from giving a full recommendation of the piece. So very close to perfection!

Great gem

Really like this watch. It does feel like what a quality vintage watch would be when new. Quality is excellent and everything aligns (bezel, hands etc). Design is unique.

Best way to get an icon

This Yema Superman Quartz is the best quality/price piece on the market. If you are looking at getting your hand on an icon piece without breaking your pocket this is your best option out there.
