The #TimeofHeroes family is growing!
Over the past year YEMA has been working in close collaboration with two professionals in the sea / air fields in order to gather advice in the design and testing of our upcoming timepieces.
Some have already discovered it through our social networks, we are pleased to introduce two new YEMA ambassadors:
Sammy Mason, professional aerobatic pilot and Jason Washington, professional diver, marine activist and PADI Ambassador will have the pleasure of putting our toolwatches to test in the hardest conditions possible in their respective fields.
Very soon we'll reveal the new timepieces designed and thoroughly tested with the support and input of Sammy and Jason!
A 2017 International Scuba Diving Hall of Fame honoree, Jason is a professional scuba diver and underwater photographer featured in many print publications including the iconic National Geographic.
Jason is an iconic figure in the Cayman Islands underwater community, he's at the origin of several projects which aim at protecting the delicate marine life found in the waters of the Cayman Islands and promoting sustainable tourism.
PILOTE RED BULL AIR RACING
A third-generation pilot, Mason was just three days old when he experienced his first flight in a Piper Cub flown by his mother. He was named after his grandfather, an aerobatic legend, and his parents restore vintage aeroplanes and manage the Santa Paula Airport in California where Sammy now lives in a hangar apartment.
He started flying lessons at age 12 and soloed in a glider at 14 before soloing in 10 different aircraft on his 16th birthday. Sammy is the youngest pilot of the American aerobatic team in the Advanced category and Red Bull Air Race.
