    Re: Proud Owner of YEMA Superman Heritage

    Just picked one of these up With the sapphire glass In anticipation of the bronze one I also jumped in on

    So far Iím impressed

    itís a smaller watch that wears well under the cuff

    Once I got the bracelet adjusted for my wrist It wears well

    I like the retro look and feel

    Plus itís running well

    Interestingly, I've noticed a difference in my Superman Heritage that I received a few weeks ago vs. the one I handled from last fall. I've not had any of the lug hole offset issues that I've seen mentioned in the past, the cut of the end links themselves is cleaner, and mine has a signed crown, so it seems they're trying to improve things. If only it wasn't for the slightly misaligned bezel, but I'm getting over it. Even my Submariner had that issue.
    That's great. I think they fixed a few of those issues. As for the misaligned bezel, I have also found that issue on a number of brands/models. Some where you would least expect it. Notably, a Zenith and an Omega. Matter of fact, I am so aware of this fairly common issue, that even when I am just browsing at a boutique or AD, I check the bezel alignment.

    Cheers,

    Congratulations! And thanks for the excellent pics. That bracelet really looks great, and also has a very retro look as well. How many micro adjustments are on the clasp? And how do you find the crown operation as far as pulling out the crown, winding and setting the date/time? I find that when I pull out the crown on mine, it usually resets the date when I start winding, and I have to do some funbling to get it in position to wind. Just wondering if this is a common issue.

    Cheers,
    Carl

    Re: Proud Owner of YEMA Superman Heritage

    Mine has no issue going from handwinding to date set. As you know, when you unscrew the crown it should go straight to the hand winding position. When the crown is unscrewed, do you get any spring action when you press the crown? Sounds like the stem might have been cut too short, if you are getting a spring action then the keyless works is sticky, easy fix but the dial/hands have to be removed to get to it. Another sign of the stem being too short is when trying to screw the crown down, it'll try to adjust the date wheel.

    Oh, the clasp has 4 micro adjusts (good for 8mm of adjustment) and each removable link is also 8mm.

    Crown feels smooth and there are no issues

    Thanks for that info. I will play around with it a bit. I think it will have to be taken to a local repair. I will test it again tomorrow. And I will check for spring action. Very helpful post, thank you.

    Same here.

    I think you should. I bought a Squale 1521A last year with the same movement and the crown was behaving rather unpredictably. I could only change the date when twiddling with the crown as it wouldn't change as should typically, also the crown was not easily finding the threads.

    My Yema Superman behaves like Michael's and the crown is also not wobbly when fully unscrewed.

    Btw, I think you mentioned handwinding hin this thread, anyways do a Google on 'ETA 2824-2 handwinding' and you will find many threads. I picked this one for you: ETA 2824-2 worn from hand winding?
    Too make it short, this movement is not optimized for excessive handwinding, though it doesn't hurt it when lubricated. I recommend post #3 from Roland Ranfft in this thread, he knows the stuff.

    But I couldn't forget about the Superman and every some months I came back and read about it. There was the issue with the hands of the first edition, then I also was a bit at war with the polished section of the bracelet and so time went by.

    However, for long I was wishing for a watch like my 5-digit Sub, one that I can wear when I don't want to wear my Sub, but one that doesn't break the bank . A watch that works as a whole with a default bracelet as a visual concept was the main non-negotiable requirement and just like my Sub it should be a watch with a standalone design, a signature design, one that has character so to say and yeah, one with a heritage wouldn't hurt also.

    Lately I was - once again - cruising the web regarding the Superman and your review came just in time to push me over as I was finally weak and willing anyway.

    Mine came today, it is perfect and I'm simply totally enraptured.

    Hi Bernd,

    Many thanks for all of your well received comments and sincere thoughts about this watch. So glad that you enjoy this watch as much! I will definitely take your advice, and advice of others who posted on this thread.

    Normally, I would not buy a watch from a company overseas, and a model which I cannot see first in real life. And also I would wish to have an AD where I can return the watch to for repair. I really do not feel like sending the watch all the way back to France! Nevertheless, I am not going to give up on the watch. It definitely has a character all it's own, the likes of which I have never encountered before on any other watch I have owned.

    I really hope you continue to enjoy this amazing watch for a long, long time.

    Cheers,
    Carl
