Description

Limited Edition - 100 pcs

End November 2023 Pierre Hedan, a young French explorer, will attempt to reach the South Pole on foot from the coast of Antarctica, a 1,130 kilometers expedition that will span over 50 days in extreme conditions. YEMA has designed a specific Superman 500 GMT model that Pierre will use during his Antarctic expedition as time and guidance instrument. Equipped with our YEMA3000 GMT in-house caliber and limited to 100 timepieces, this unique Superman model benefits from all the technical and modernized improvements of the Superman 500 range.

 

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 & 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.

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.

ANTARCTIC DIAL

The white dial grained finish reminiscent of the icy soils of Antarctica, is in stark contrast with the black circled hour markers, which makes it easier for Pierre to read time during his South Pole expedition. Depending on the dial inclination angle, the polished steel hands darken quickly when exposed to direct sunlight. The black finished GMT hand allows quick reading of a second time zone.

MORE RESISTANT DOUBLE DOMED SAPPHIRE CRYSTAL

The new double domed sapphire crystal offers better readability, increased resistance and a resolute vintage look. The crystal has been reduced by 0.3mm on its height and widened by 0.6mm on its outside diameter so as to provide a better seating in the case, while preserving its 2.6mm in thickness and the beautiful magnifying effect when looking through it from an angle.

LIMITED EDITION
000/100

Each watch of this ultra-limited edition is engraved with a unique number from 001 to 100. The historic YEMA coat of arms is struck with a hydraulic press and is now treated by different microblasting processes offering a refined finish.

PROFESSIONAL DIVING WATCH 50 ATM

Beyond its GMT functions, the Superman model is above all intended for diving professionals, now benefiting from an enhanced water resistance of 500m and technical improvements allowing it to adjust the bezel on the water surface, when unlocking the bezel in the unscrewed crown position.

YEMA3000 GMT IN-HOUSE CALIBER

The GMT In-house Caliber YEMA3000 is powered by optimized components yielding slightly better performance than generic Standard Grade calibers (ETA, Sellita, Miyota), offering a Daily Rate of +/- 10 s/d and a 42h power reserve.

GMT 24H SAPPHIRE BEZEL
TRACK 3 TIME ZONES

Bi-directional 24-hour graduated bezel made of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, offering a high-quality appearance. Designed for travellers, the GMT complication makes it possible to read up to 3 different time zones thanks to the GMT hand and the rotating (24 clicks) bezel.

DAY / NIGHT REFERENCE

During the Antarctic summer the sun is almost constantly in the sky, the days lengthen rapidly until the sun no longer sets, a phenomenon called the Midnight Sun.

During this perpetual day time, the 24-hour graduated GMT bezel makes it possible to distinguish day from night. The bezel is divided into two halves each with a distinct color, one corresponds to the daytime hours, the other to the night-time hours.

SUPER-LUMINOVA GRADE A

The markers, hands and bezel are treated with Super-LumiNova Grade A to ensure increased readability. The bezel’s luminescent marker at 12 o’clock and the luminescent arrow-shaped minute hand provide scuba divers with an accurate indication of dive times in poor visibility conditions at the greatest depths. The luminescent 24-hour scale on the bezel and the luminescent hands facilitate reading of the three time zones in all situations.

NAVIGATION INSTRUMENT

Primarily a time-measuring instrument for professionals and explorers called upon to travel the world, the Superman 500 GMT can also prove useful as a backup for navigational instruments.

To locate the cardinal points in the southern hemisphere, simply point the 12 o'clock index on the watch dial towards the sun, the north/south line is halfway between the 12 o'clock index and the hour hand.

FOLLOW THE POLHEIM EXPEDITION LIVE

Pierre HEDAN is equipped with a satellite phone which sends a geolocation signal allowing to track him live. In addition Pierre plans to share one photo per day so we can follow his adventurous expedition.

STAINLESS STEEL SCALES BRACELET

New reissue of the iconic YEMA Scales bracelet from the 1960s in polished/brushed 316L steel, featuring a new double security buckle with a diver extension for easy and quick adjustment over a diving suit.

STAINLESS STEEL HERITAGE BRACELET

The 316L steel bracelet has a double safety folding clasp with a dive extension so that it can be adjusted easily and quickly over a diving suit.

RUBBER FKM VITON® BAND

Our new RUBBER FKM VITON® BAND has been engineered for intensive use in all extreme conditions thanks to its light, flexible and highly resistant VITON® material which also repels dust. The elegant 316L Stainless Steel deployment buckle adds style and comfort.

VINTAGE LEATHER STRAP

For daily use, we designed a black leather strap that enhances the overall neo-vintage look of the Superman 500.
