Description

A major evolution of YEMA's 1960s iconic model, the new Superman 500 GMT preserves its main professional diving features while providing a 3-time zone GMT function for all globetrotters. Equipped with our In-house Caliber YEMA3000 and for the first time water resistant to 500m, this enhanced Superman benefits from a modernized architecture and substantial technical improvements that position it as the ultimate French professional diver's watch.

 

NEW MODERNIZED DESIGN

For almost 2 years, we have imagined and worked on an evolution of the Superman model. Our desire was to bring to this mythical model of our collection, technical improvements and a modernized construction 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.

PROFESSIONAL DIVING WATCH 500M

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.

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.

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. 

NEW BEZEL ARCHITECTURE, BEZEL LOCK & CROWN

The bezel stopper, the centerpiece of the Superman, patented at the time by the brand, has been redesigned to ensure a better fit between the crown tube and the bezel stopper. The latter is therefore more stable.

To do this, we had to redesign all of the bezel and crown components. Additional bores at the bezel have been made allowing for optimized travel of the pawl spring and more precise alignment of the bezel insert.

The crown architecture has been completely reworked. The length of the tube between the crown and the bezel lock has been modified, giving it better notching and better stability. When winding and setting the time, in the unscrewed position, the crown provides a feeling of solidity and high quality.

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.

SAPPHIRE GMT 24H BEZEL
3 TIME ZONES

Bi-directional 24-hour graduated bezel made of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, offering a high-quality shiny appearance. Innovative treatment in highly qualitative Super-LumiNova Grade A. Designed for travelers, the GMT complication allows up to 3 different time zones to be read using the GMT hand and 24-click rotating bezel.

IN-HOUSE CALIBER GMT YEMA3000

The second-generation GMT In-house Caliber YEMA3000 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.

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.

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 better seating in the case while preserving its 2.6mm in thickness and the beautiful magnifying effect when looking through it from an angle.

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

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.
