To mark the launching of YEMA in Korea in 2021 we derived inspiration from the evocative colours of Korean Palaces and hand-forged bronzeware – Bangjja to create this exclusive Superman Steel Bronze Korea special edition inspiring from the iconic 1970s French dive watch YEMA Superman.
BRACELET MARINE NATIONALE OFFERT
Bracelet officiel en canvas renforcé et doublé cuir
The second-generation in-house Caliber YEMA2000 is powered by optimised components yielding slightly better performance than similar Standard Grade calibers, offering a Daily Rate of +/- 10 s/d and a power reserve of 42h. This YEMA2000 "No-Date" version has no date or phantom date position on the crown.
A dial inspired by the palatial Dancheong Red with large white indices and gilt hands to ensure a high contrast for easy readability. The whole is completed with YEMA SUPERMAN brand mentions at 12 o'clock, the AUTOMATIC and 990 FEET mentions at 6 o'clock and the minutes markers printed in a gilt tone, perfectly matching the shade of the bronze.
Unidirectional rotatable 60-minutes graduated bezel acting as a count up timer to measure diving time. Stylish sand-blasted finishing.
The unique Superman bezel-lock at 3 o'clock proprietary design has proven very useful to professional divers and is found on all Superman models since 1963
The Superman Steel Bronze Korea features a high-quality 2.60 mm double domed sapphire crystal offering better readability, enhanced resistance and a resolute vintage look. Premium watches like the Superman Steel Bronze generally use sapphire crystal which is extremely hard (Moh’s scale 9 – Diamond is 10), and will resist scratching by most substances short of diamonds.
The 1970's iconic sweeping second hand with its head shaped like a shovel adds a distinct touch to this historic reissue
The Superman bronze bezel and crown offer a stylish contrast with the brushed steel case. Because its ability to patina, each watch bronze bezel will age differently according to its usage and exposure to diverse weather conditions, adding character to the watch and making each timepiece truly one of a kind. The best thing of patina on bronze is that you can easily reverse the process anytime and bring your bronze watch back to a healthy shine in just a few minutes.
The 316L stainless steel band with secure lock comes with a divers extension so it can be easily adjusted over a diving suit.
For daily use we designed a brown vintage leather strap that enhances the Superman Steel Bronze overall vintage look and perfectly fits the bronze case natural patina
The 316L Steel caseback proudly displays YEMA's historic crest, beautifully embossed with a hydraulic press, and a SPECIAL EDITION 대한민국(KOREA) mention engraved in Korean.
The hands, dial markers and the pearl marker are treated with Swiss SUPER-LUMINOVA® C1 so as to offer perfect readability in low light conditions.
Delving into YEMA’s history, in 1963 YEMA produced the first Superman watch. Designed as an indestructible tool-watch to satisfy the needs of professional divers and France's Air Force pilots, its performance was revolutionary at that time. Then in 1970 YEMA released the iconic Superman reference 53.00.16. With its distinct black dial and round markers this mythical model became a collector's time piece over the years.
In 2018 YEMA launched the Superman Heritage lovingly recreating the Superman reference 53.00.16 using 3D modelling of each individual component so as to pay tribute to one of YEMA’s most emblematic time piece. This reissue has been acclaimed worldwide. In 2021, we are proud to make a special Korean edition to introduce the French art of watchmaking and mark the beginnings of YEMA in Korea.
