Perfect match for my wrist!

Since arrival 2 weeks ago the watch has been almost only watch at my wrist. It looks sporty and cool with steel bracelet but fits perfectly also with blue nato straps and NDC or M&N straps. Build quality feels good and lume is strong and long lasting 5 stars from me!

Nice, but …

Positive points - It is indeed an improved design making the watch belong in the price bracket above where it sits. It looks and feels a more expensive watch. - The movement runs well within specifications. - The FKM strap is excellent. It’s a rather expensive upgrade for “just a rubber strap”, it’s comfortable and looks a lot better than the standard steel bracelet. Negative points - The crown is a bit on the stiff side and the small sharpish indents make it a pain, literally, to operate. - My watch was delivered on two different strap lugs, one for a 19mm and one for a 20mm. While just a detail that can be solved by myself for a few euro, it’s a minor disappointment from a QC perspective. - The lume is not at all spectacular … Neutral point - The Mysterious Blue is quite dark and can only be appreciated in good light. Otherwise it looks like a plain black dial.

NEW IMPROVED DESIGN

For almost 2 years, we have worked on a substantial evolution of the Superman model, by bringing technical improvements and a modernized architecture to this legendary YEMA model, while preserving its iconic design.

BEZEL & BEZEL-LOCK NEW ARCHITECTURE 

The bezel-lock, the Superman’s centerpiece which design was patented a long-time ago, and the crown tube have been redesigned to ensure a smoother operation and that the bezel-lock stays securely in place.

The bezel and the crown have also been redesigned. New micro drilling in strategic areas of the case right under the bezel allows for optimized rotation of the bezel click spring and a more precise alignment of the bezel insert.

ENHANCED WINDING CROWN

The winding crown's architecture has been completely reviewed. The crown tube and the winding stem have been modified to provide a smoother operation of the various pull-out crown positions and rotating directions when adjusting the caliber functions. When winding and setting the time of the Superman, the improved crown provides a feeling of stability and quality.

A new arrangement of the winding crown seals makes the Superman benefit from a 3 bars water resistance with the crown unscrewed. This enables bezel rotation on the water surface before starting a scuba diving descent, to ensure accurate dive times.

MORE RESISTANT DOUBLE DOMED SAPPHIRE CRYSTAL

The new double domed sapphire crystal offers better readability, increased resistance and a resolute vintage look.

The crystal has been reduced by 0.3mm on its height and widened by 0.6mm on its outside diameter so as to provide a better seating in the case, while preserving its 2.6mm in thickness and the beautiful magnifying effect when looking through it from an angle.

50 ATM CASE BACK

The 316L stainless steel case back thickness has been increased from 1.5mm to 2.2mm so as to achieve a 50 ATM water resistance.
YEMA's historic crest, embossed with a hydraulic press, is now treated by various microblasting processes, which results in a more accurate and precise finishing. 

SUPER-LUMINOVA GRADE A

The markers, hands and bezel are treated with Super-LumiNova BGW9 Grade A to ensure increased readability.

The bezel’s luminescent marker at 12 o’clock and the luminescent arrow-shaped minute hand provide scuba divers with an accurate indication of dive times in poor visibility conditions at the greatest depths.

YEMA2000 IN-HOUSE CALIBER "NO-DATE"

The second-generation In-house Caliber YEMA2000 is powered by optimised components yielding slightly better performance than similar Standard Grade calibers, offering a Daily Rate of +/- 10 s/d and a power reserve of 42h. This YEMA2000 "No-Date" version has no date nor phantom date position on the crown.

Thanks to a new movement holder design, our In-house Caliber offers increased resistance to shocks and vibrations.

MYSTERIOUS BLUE DIAL & BEZEL

The date complication removal allows a sleek and harmonious dial design with perfectly symmetrical elements while enhancing readability.

Deep, mysterious and distinguished, the aluminum bezel and matte dial colors change from dark blue with a navy undertone to a blue-black metallic hue, depending on light exposure.

DIVER STEEL BRACELET

The 316 L Stainless Steel bracelet with secure lock comes with a divers extension so you can adjust it easily and quickly over a diving suit.

RUBBER FKM VITON® BAND

Specifically designed for the Superman 500, the new RUBBER FKM VITON® BAND has been engineered for intensive use in all extreme conditions thanks to its light, flexible and highly resistant VITON® material which also repels dust.

The elegant 316L Stainless Steel deployment buckle adds style and comfort.

VINTAGE LEATHER STRAP

For daily use, we designed a brown leather strap that enhances the overall neo-vintage look of the Superman 500.
