Yema Superman Heritage

This new Yema Superman Heritage is the first model of a collection of four watches that will be released in the coming weeks – Yema will also have a Flygraf, a Rallygraf and a Yachtingraf, three chronographs powered by automatic Valjoux movements. Yet, the Superman is even more special and certainly the best example of the “cool French watch”. For this edition, the brand has been faithful to one specific Superman model, the 1970 Reference 53.00.16, pictured below:

Nice looking. Not that familiar with the brand, but $1,300 seems a bit steep.

Great looking watch. Wondering if the bracelet is true to the original which, as was often the standard at the time of the original issue, has a hair pulling shitty bracelet of horrific quality.

Might be a really nice watch at gray market or used price.

"The brand really gained famed during the 1960s and 1970s, with its purpose-built collection: Superman (diving), Flygraf (pilot chronograph), Rallygraf (racing chronograph) and Yachtingraf (regatta chronograph). "




Not to mention the Steffigraf (tennis watch)

I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Looks great, but costs way too much, which sums up to a "nope."

Often confused with the 'Owen Wilson In Drag' watch.
