The Yema watch company is one of Frances most renowned watch makers, they have produced watches throughout the 20th century and are still making high quality time pieces today. Yema watches are becoming high collectible and their Chronographs from the 1950’s and 1960’s are rising extremely rapidly in value, some now worth many thousands of pounds.
Anyone who knows vintage divers’ watches will know that one of the most famous dive watches of the 1960’s and 1970’s was the Yema Superman, a 300M professional divers watch made to compete with Rolex, Blancpain and Omega. The build quality was absolutely superb and it featured a remarkable locking bezel system, operated by adjusting the screw down crown.
This example is the ultimate combination of this famous 42mm divers watch, it has the original aluminum bezel insert with matt black dial. The condition is stunning, the case is extremely sharp and has only had the very lightest of refinishes, the bezel is in outstanding condition but what sets the watch apart from the crown is the beautiful dial and hands, with matching creamy luminous material, it truly is stunning.
The watch has been fully serviced and overhauled by Simon Freese watch makers, which includes being pressure tested so it can be used for the purpose it was originally intended. The watch is presented on original NOS tropic band with original buckle.
These watches are increasing in value rapidly and are every bit as good as a Blancpain Fifty Fathoms or Rolex Submariner, with all the style, design and build quality but still at a fraction of the price.
This is a watch you can be certain will not only give you immense pleasure wearing but also a great return on your investment
