YEMA'S 75TH ANNIVERSARY LIMITED EDITION

Entirely designed and manufactured in Morteau and the Franco-Swiss Jura valley around our workshops, this collector's timepiece with high-end finishes available in steel and bronze editions and limited to 75 numbered copies each, marks the 75th anniversary of YEMA and its gradual transition towards a vertically integrated watchmaking Manufacture.

This masterpiece is powered by an exceptional hand-wound tourbillon caliber designed by Olivier Mory, a renowned French Watchmaker Developer based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, which offers unprecedented performance and complications.

FRENCH MANUFACTURE CALIBER

Caliber designed and developed by Olivier Mory. Micro-components (bridges and plates) manufactured directly in our YEMA workshops in Morteau, including assemblies, adjustments and checks.

TOURBILLON TIDE COMPLICATION

Prestigious caliber offering high performance thanks to its clever architecture and high-quality Franco-Swiss components. Unique lunar time complication with display of tide cycles.

-3/+7 SECONDS ACCURACY

Optimised mechanical accuracy with near chronometer-certified performance.

105 HOURS POWER RESERVE

Increased power reserve thanks to a large barrel allowing optimized winding.

TOOL WATCH REVOLUTION: LUXURY MEETS FUNCTIONALITY

" The Yachtingraf Tourbillon Maréographe has been designed for purpose, a true tool watch able to withstand the harshest conditions. It features a double dome sapphire crystal, a unidirectional count-up sapphire bezel, 10 ATM water-resistance, high anti-magnetic resistance (2,000 Gauss) and shock-resistance (5,000G) as well as an innovative tide indication complication animated by an exceptional and precise tourbillon caliber offering over 4 days power reserve.

This unique set of features is uncommon since tourbillon watches are mostly designed as watchmaking art pieces that are delicate in their utilization. This is one of the rarest tourbillons built for daily use, a luxury timepiece that is as rugged and functional as it is beautiful and refined, a tool watch in the lineage of YEMA watches. "

CHRISTOPHER BÔLE
CEO & HEAD OF DESIGN

DOUBLE DOME SAPPHIRE BEZEL & CRYSTAL

The unidirectional rotating bezel is characterized by its luxurious finishes. It is crafted from scratch-resistant, slightly domed sapphire, requiring a much more sophisticated and time-consuming manufacturing process. The bezel is completed by an insert with a minimalist 0-60 graduation and a luminescent marker at noon.

This collector's timepiece is also equipped with a high-quality double-domed sapphire crystal 2.20 mm high, offering better readability, increased resistance and a resolutely vintage appearance.

YACHTINGRAF ICONIC DIAL

The dial takes inspiration from the aesthetic codes of the 1970’s Yachtingraf iconic model. It features a sunray black finish with applied markers coated with Super-LumiNova and a colorful Maréographe register reminiscent of the regatta-style Yachtingraf vintage model completed with a tides indicator in the form of a small hand gracefully decorated with YEMA’s logo. The 60-second tourbillon boasts a mesmerizing kinetic spectacle for the wearer as it beats and turns against the partially open dial.

STEEL/BRONZE CASE & SAPPHIRE DISPLAY CASEBACK

The case design combines both sportiness and elegance while ensuring a 10 BAR water resistance. Available in steel or bronze, it features different finishes with vertical brushing and polished beveled lugs and a circular brushed bezel. With a 42.5mm contained diameter and a 12.3mm thickness (14.5mm including the double-domed sapphire crystal), it offers balanced proportions for such a timepiece. The 20mm lug allows a wide choice of bracelets. The transparent exhibition caseback reveals the beating heart, it shows off the distinctive architecture of the CMM.30 tourbillon caliber creating a fascinating experience for the true enthusiast. The caseback outer ring is engraved with a unique Limited Edition number (XX/75) and a serial number (XXX-XXX).

FKM VITON® RUBBER  BRACELET

Made from premium quality FKM Viton® rubber, providing utmost durability while remaining easily pliable, comfortable, dust repelling and highly resistant to tearing. The elegant 316L Stainless Steel folding clasp, available in brushed steel and IP bronze, adds style and comfort.

TOURBILLON CALIBER

Invented by French horologist Abraham-Louis Breguet in 1795, the tourbillon is an advanced regulating organ present in certain high-end mechanical watches, intended to improve the precision of timepieces. It consists of a rotating cage containing the balance wheel and its hairspring, the escape wheel, the lever and the second wheel which drives it. The cage rotates 360 degrees every 60 seconds, which counteracts the effects of gravity and reduces any positional errors of accuracy. The tourbillon embodies watchmaking know-how, only a few Manufactures master the creation of this caliber masterpiece.

MARÉOGRAPHE  COMPLICATION

The Maréographe consists of a tide complication placed in an elegant register. To make this magnificent phenomenon of nature visible, an elegant small hand indicates high and low tides by making gradual half-revolutions every 6h 12m 7.89s (change from high tide to low tide and vice versa) and a full revolution every 12h 25m 15.79s.

For Olivier Mory, astronomy is a family passion that spans several generations, so for him it was natural to work on a complication linked to the movement of the stars, in this case lunar time and terrestrial tides.

The Earth revolves around the Sun by rotating on its own axis. The duration of this rotation on itself is the average day (24 hours).

The Moon orbits the Earth in 29.54 days in the same direction as the Earth rotates. The Moon gets a little ahead of the Earth each day, the duration of the Lunar Day is 24 hours 50 minutes 31 seconds.

The tidal cycles are conditioned by the gravitational forces exerted by the Moon during its rotation around the Earth. By integrating the lunar time on a mechanical watch then by synchronizing the tides to local time, this makes possible to display local tides with rigorous accuracy
