Founded in 1948, YEMA is run by a third-generation watchmakers' family of Morteau (France), most employees averaging 30 years of service and having been trained in France's most prestigious horology schools located in our region. Over the years, YEMA has stood the test of time by specializing in luxury and high-precision mechanics designed specifically for Diving, Car Racing, Sailing and Space Exploration made in partnership with the military, professional sportsmen and known scientists. YEMA was the first French watch sent into space and on a pedestrian trek to the North Pole, the first professional deep diving French timepiece and the official military watch of France's Air Force pilots.
Following the recent success of the Superman Heritage, reissue of the iconic French diver watch YEMA Superman reference 53.00.16 initially released in 1970 as an indestructible measurement tool for diving professionals, we are happy to announce the launch of the Yema Superman Heritage Bronze on Kickstarter as from June 1st! With its distinct resolutely vintage design, this exclusive bronze edition is limited to 1948 collector’s time pieces so as to commemorate YEMA's year of foundation and it has been developed in partnership with Hugues Vitry, a worldwide recognised professional diver & marine conservation activist responsible for a NGO which studies the population of resident sperm whales in the Indian Ocean.
This unique bronze edition will develop a natural patina that will make each watch truly one of a kind and will be proposed on Kickstarter at a -50% off retail price of US$ 699 with 3 bands and a collector's leather box with a commemorative bronze medal.

Greetings from France!
YEMA's in-house mechanical movement is mostly recognised for its reliability and is undeniably the heart and soul of the Superman Heritage Bronze. Skilfully created in 2011 by our expert watchmakers at our Morteau (France) workshops, YEMA's in-house movement required 2 years of R&D and an investment of € 3m. This workhorse automatic movement robustness has been widely proven during past 10 years, its deliberate standardised engineering design ensures easy servicing by any watch expert. Our French in-house movement contains an intricate series of tiny components working together to power the timepiece, the motion of wearing the watch provides all the power needed to wind it up and keep it running.
With 31 Ruby jewels, it beats at 28,800 A/h and offers a convenient power reserve of 45 hours. Following internal Quality Control procedures, our watchmakers team calibrate the mouvement right after assembling to +/- 6 sec/day accuracy.
