The first YEMA French Air Force tool watches were designed back in the 1970's to equip the Air Force Diver Rescuers team during helicopter-borne sea rescue missions. Later on, the watches were also used by fighter pilots, making of the YEMA Superman a unique SEA-AIR military tool watch.
The French Air & Space Forces having recently merged, this marks the launch of a new collaboration with YEMA through the release of a new collection of military tool watches specifically designed for fighter jet pilots.
YEMA's signature #TimeofHeroes dates from 1970. It reflects the history and values of the brand and what it stands for. It tells the adventures of remarkable sportsmen and explorers who have achieved the extraordinary under the most extreme conditions, with a YEMA watch on their wrists. Since the 1970s, YEMA equips the French Air Force with indestructible, high-precision timepieces.
“France's Air & Space Force is very proud to collaborate with French watchmaker YEMA in crafting professional tool watches specifically designed for our soldiers and made available to the general public.”
