YEMA Superman Lagoon AUTO

Yema have raided their historic archives for the inspiration for their latest diver’s model. This is the Superman Lagoon / Swell Automatic evolved from a Yema vintage model dating back to 1964.

This is the Lagoon variant which has this rather lovely blue sunburst dial. There is a second auto with named Swell which has circular rather than the lovely block markers of the Lagoon. In addition there are some quartz models in the collection.

The Lagoon also has a black dial version. Basic spec. includes: 40mm x 12.9mm Stainless steel case with Mineral crystal (quel dommage) and 300 meters of water-resistance and an automatic Maison Ambre MBP 1000 movement.

MSRP is 690euro. Thoughts? Lagoon all the way – way nicer markers – still a pity they are using mineral instead of Sapphire – at its price point there is absolutely NO REASON to use mineral. Pft!
