Reissue of the iconic French diver watch YEMA Superman reference 53.00.16 initially released in 1970 as an indestructible measurement tool for diving professionals. With its distinct resolutely vintage design, this exclusive bronze edition is limited to 1948 collector’s time pieces so as to commemorate YEMA's year of foundation. Each timepiece is truly unique as it will patina differently depending on its use and its exposure to weather conditions. Each watch will have a natural vintage look with all the advantages of modern mechanical diving features.
