French watchmakers, YEMA, have rapidly become one of our favourite brands here at The Coolector as they offer timepieces to suit all tastes and budgets and one of our favourite offerings from them to date is the spectacular looking YEMA Superman Bronze Bordeaux Watch. This classy looking accessory is sophisticated and stylish in equal measure and will deliver an unparalleled performance day after day. Sports watches are entering a new era of elegance, and strive to combine sophisticated functionality with masculine elegance for round-the-clock appeal and that’s something certainly true of this striking timepiece from YEMA.
Initially designed as an indestructible diving watch, the new Superman Bronze Bordeaux Watch from YEMA ($1399) is an elegant sport watch that is purpose-built for urban professionals as it looks just as good when worn to the office, tucked beneath a dressy shirt as it does at the beach or on a wilderness adventure. This majestic looking timepiece uses the second-generation in-house Caliber YEMA2000 movement which is powered by optimised components that deliver a slightly better performance than similar Standard Grade calibres and offers a Daily Rate of +/- 10 s/d and a power reserve of 42h. This new YEMA2000 “No-Date” version has no date or phantom date position on the crown.
First Class French Craftsmanship
The quality of the watches from YEMA is always second to none but that is particularly true of the Superman Bronze Bordeaux Watch. It boasts a scratch-resistant unidirectional sapphire crystal bezel with burgundy insert and matt white markers that deliver an impactful visual punch and make this devilishly dapper timepiece a real head turner in our opinion here at The Coolector. The unique Superman bezel-lock at 3 o’clock has proven to be a very useful addition to professional divers and is found on all Superman models since 1963.
Unparalleled aesthetics coupled with an exemplary performance make the YEMA Superman Bronze Bordeaux Watch a real stand out candidate to be your next timepiece addition and if you’re after a heritage quality accessory that can be passed from one generation to the next, then this is surely it. The Superman Bronze features a high-quality 2.60 mm double domed sapphire crystal that ensures enhanced readability, improved resistance and an undeniably vintage look that is sure to appeal to most watch aficionados out there.
Premium watches like the Superman Bronze generally use sapphire crystal which is incredibly robust (on the Moh’s scale it rates a 9 – Diamond is 10), and will resist scratching by most substances short of diamonds. The dial really pops with this excellent watch with the dark matte black surface contrasting well with the applied hour markers featuring metal surrounds with gold finish and a slightly recessed date window. It has a brown vintage leather strap that enhances the Superman Bronze overall vintage aesthetic and perfectly fits the bronze case natural patina. We’re big fans of this watch and sure you will be too if you get your hands on one.
