It's a bird. It's a plane. It's Superman! Don’t ask me why the 1963 Yema Superman was named so – all I can tell you is that –

it’s back after more than five decades of absence in the form of a faithful re-edition that follows all the all the same design codes and characteristics that gave its ancestor its unique appearance.

Its modest 40mm Stainless steel case is equipped with historic features such as its 300 meters of water-resistance, safety brake stop and famous, arrow-head minute hand and ‘’Pelle’’ seconds indictor complete with red dot.

Available in three existing Yema colors: Mysterious Blue, Vivid Silver and Satin Black, the Superman Re-Edition is powered either by an in house movement, the MPB1000 automatic movement or a quartz.

I am not exactly sure what the auto is based on, but the fact that it has been renamed suggests to me that it is likely something hailing from the Far East, but who knows. The quartz version of the Superman utilizes a Swiss Ronda 715LI caliber.

Further features include: a screw-down and caseback, and a mineral glass. The French made, Yema Superman Re-Edition comes with seven different 20mm NATO strap options that include black nylon as well as several leather colors.

Prices are as follows: auto – 690€ / quartz – 349€. As always, follow the link embedded, below for more info.
