    Yema X Project

    Yema's 'customer' design competition has reached the last two designs and voting now on - both are dive watches. Another Superman design and the Pearl Diver. I'm for the Pearl Diver as its truly a new model whereas the Superman is just another version of the Superman range, attractive as they all are, but not sure there is a need for another version. If Yema go ahead with one of them no doubt the Superman will be the more likely as they wouldn't need a new case , whereas the Pearl Diver case is different to their existing Dive watch range so less profitable no doubt. I prefer the wider bezel and the dial on the Pearl Diver, and the thicker (less long and pointy) lugs - the thinner bezel of the Superman (and the Navygraf) makes the watches wear big IMHO for their size - my Navygraf in particular wears a lot bigger than its 39mm due to the thin bezel/large dial, flat crystal and flatish lugs that sit up off the wrist. Not sure what the L2L of the Pearl Diver is but looks shorter which suits us smaller wristed better. Others may have a different view!

    Pearl Diver for me as well - IF they offer it in something other than "Vintage Radium"! Is anyone other than ME ready for the "artificially aged" LQQKING luminous era in watches to be DEAD & BURIED - in the same coffin as my old bell bottom jeans and my nehru shirt?!

    Yep, same here. Although, somehow it doesn't look very "Yema-y" to me; maybe I need to re-check their line-up.

    Tough choice between the two. I do wish the Pearl Diver had adopted the indexes and the second hand of the Superman. However, I went with the Pearl Diver.

    Sorry is the pearl diver the one on the right? isn't that a Tudor Submariner's design?

    My immediate choice is the Pearl also but, put them both in bright light and the Superman might gain a little ground, they sparkle pretty good at the right angles, be nice to see real life shots.

    If it was not for that rectangular clip above the crown I would say the superman; therefore, the Pearl
