BRACELET: Heritage Bracelet

A major evolution of YEMA's 1960s iconic model, the new Superman 500 is the worthy heir to its predecessors. Equipped with our In-house Caliber YEMA2000 and for the first time water resistant to 500m, this enhanced Superman benefits from a modernized architecture and substantial technical improvements that positions it as the ultimate French professional diver's watch.

NEW IMPROVED DESIGN

For almost 2 years, we have worked on a substantial evolution of the Superman model, by bringing technical improvements and a modernized architecture to this legendary YEMA model, while preserving its iconic design.

CROWN & BEZEL-LOCK NEW ARCHITECTURE

Redesigned to ensure a smoother operation and that the bezel-lock stays securely in place

BEZEL

New micro drilling in strategic areas of the case right under the bezel allows for optimized rotation of the bezel click spring and a more precise alignment of the bezel insert.

BEZEL & BEZEL-LOCK NEW ARCHITECTURE

The bezel-lock, the Superman’s centerpiece which design was patented a long-time ago, and the crown tube have been redesigned to ensure a smoother operation and that the bezel-lock stays securely in place.

The bezel and the crown have also been redesigned. New micro drilling in strategic areas of the case right under the bezel allows for optimized rotation of the bezel click spring and a more precise alignment of the bezel insert.

ENHANCED WINDING CROWN

The winding crown's architecture has been completely reviewed. The crown tube and the winding stem have been modified to provide a smoother operation of the various pull-out crown positions and rotating directions when adjusting the caliber functions. When winding and setting the time of the Superman, the improved crown provides a feeling of stability and quality.

A new arrangement of the winding crown seals makes the Superman benefit from a 3 bar water resistance with the crown unscrewed. This enables bezel rotation on the water surface before starting a scuba diving descent, to ensure accurate dive times. 

50 ATM CASE BACK

The 316L stainless steel case back thickness has been increased from 1.5mm to 2.2mm so as to achieve a 50 ATM water resistance. YEMA's historic crest, embossed with a hydraulic press, is now treated by various microblasting processes, which results in a more accurate and precise finishing.
