FRENCH MICRO-ROTOR

CALIBRE MANUFACTURE MORTEAU 20

Ultra-thin micro-rotor caliber featuring near chronometric precision and 70 hours power reserve while beating at 28,800vph (4Hz).

DISCOVER

FRENCH MANUFACTURE CALIBER

Micro-rotor caliber designed by French watchmaker Olivier Mory and manufactured by YEMA in its Morteau workshops.

ULTRA-THIN MICRO-ROTOR CALIBER

Due to its smart architecture resulting in a contained thickness of just 3.70 mm, this micro-rotor caliber equips thin and elegant cases.

-3/+7 SECONDS ACCURACY

Optimised mechanical accuracy with near chronometric performance. Swiss regulating organs made of non-magnetic alloys.

LARGE BARREL WITH 70 HOURS POWER RESERVE

High density tungsten micro-rotor and large barrel allowing optimized winding and a power reserve of 70 hours.

ULTRA LEGIBLE SKIN DIVER DIAL

The complex dial layout provides a distinctive design element and excellent legibility by showcasing triangular-shaped hour markers complete with Arabic numerals. The oversized applied markers extend into the center of the dial and are matched with a large, arrow-shaped minute hand, a long, pencil-shaped hour hand, and lollipop for the seconds.

All the elements are generously filled with vintage-inspired, lime-coloured Super-LumiNova and outlined in polished steel. Simply balanced, bold lumed markers and broad hands complement each other entirely.

The dial base has a dark grey surface, reinforcing the old-school look, and contributing to accentuate the play of light of the polished steel raised markers and hands against the dark dial.

"FADED GHOST” SAPPHIRE BEZEL

The rotating bezel stands out for its vintage-inspired “faded ghost” look. It is entirely made of sapphire and is in perfect harmony with the dark grey dial and the brushed finish of the case. This redesigned bezel features a unidirectional rotation, a 0-60 scale, and a luminescent marker at 12 o'clock treated in Grade A Super-LumiNova, which constitute essential features for professional diving watches.

000/500 LIMITED EDITION SAPPHIRE EXHIBITION CASE-BACK

Luxury watches can inspire for a variety of reasons. It’s not only the design and the style of the timepiece but also the technical aspects of a fine timepiece that can really blow watch enthusiasts away. The sapphire exhibition case-back is an elegant feature for those who enjoy taking a look at the inner workings of their mechanical timepieces, in this case it allows wearers to catch a glimpse into the inner intricacies of the Manufacture micro-rotor caliber CMM.20, a rare caliber worthy of showcasing.

Each case-back is engraved with a unique serial number, also displayed on the 5-year warranty card, and the corresponding Limited Edition number out of a total of 500 time pieces.

NEW SCALES SLIM BRACELET

The iconic 1960s YEMA Scales bracelet has been slimmed down by 0.40mm so as to harmoniously integrate with the Skin Diver Slim thin case.

This new Scales Slim bracelet gradually tapers from 4mm at the buckle and naturally adapts to each wrist's shape. It features a fully brushed finish, providing an elegant visual continuity with the brushed steel case.

The double-security folding clasp includes a dive extension for easy and quick adjustment of the bracelet over a diving suit.

CLASSIC SKIN DIVER STEEL CASE

Conceived as a professional dive watch, the 39mm 316L stainless steel case (47mm lug-to-lug) stands out with its 20mm curved lugs and brushed finishes in contrast with the polished bevels.

Instantly recognizable by its unguarded crowns and with a contained thickness of just 10mm, the steel case has been slimmed down to accommodate our CMM.20 micro-rotor caliber, while preserving a 30 BAR water resistance thanks to the sapphire exhibition case-back and the screw-down crown.

The Skin Diver Slim offers an elegant and refined case design while preserving all the advantages and functions of modern mechanical dive watches.

DOUBLE DOME SAPPHIRE CRYSTAL

The Skin Diver Slim features a 2.00 mm thick double-dome sapphire crystal, offering better readability, increased resistance and a resolutely vintage look and feel.

GRADE A SUPER-LUMINOVA

The hour markers, hands and bezel pipe are coated with Grade A Super-LumiNova for perfect readability even in the dark.

Skin diving (or free-diving) became very popular in the mid-20th century which led to a wide variety of utilitarian watches that were designed to be used during recreational diving. Water resistant skin diver watches were instantly recognizable: They featured a slimmer and smaller case than the professional dive watches, as well as unguarded crowns, making them more ergonomic and easy to wear. On top of that, they were stylish enough to feel appropriate out of the water too, offering a dressier and more refined approach, some sort of rugged elegance.
