Two limited editions marking the brand’s 75th anniversary. The diving watches that arrive with a stainless steel or bronze case stand out for featuring a tourbillon and a tide indicator on the dial.
Yema, which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, presents the new Yachtingraf Tourbillon Mareographe to mark the occasion which arrives in two limited editions of 75 pieces each.
In addition to the obvious complications, the new dive watch adds a tourbillon at 6 o’clock and a tide indicator at noon.
The tide indicator, which is painted blue and red, describes a half rotation through its pointer every 6h12m7.89s depending on the Earth’s rotation, marking a new tidal cycle, which means that the indicator operates a full 360º rotation every two cycles and which occurs every 12h25m15.79s.
The watch that wears a stainless steel or bronze case comes with dimensions of 42.50 mm in diameter by 14.50 mm in thickness with a mainly brushed finish and polished on the edges, domed unidirectional black bezel with 60m scale, domed sapphire crystal, crown at 3 o ‘clock with crown guards, open case back and 100m of water resistance.
On the black sunray dial, applied hour indexes and Dauphine’s hands in the same colour as the case and filled with Super-Luminova, the ‘Mareographe’ colour we talked about above and which comes with a steel or bronze contour, and the 60s tourbillon that completes a rotation every minute on which there are two plaques engraved with the brand name and ‘France’ relating to its roots.
Inside runs the CMM.30 hand-wound movement designed by Olivier Mory, which in addition to offering an impressive 105 hours of power reserve, is resistant to magnetic fields of up to 2,000 Gauss, shocks of up to 5,000G and an accuracy of – 3/+7 seconds per day. The same can be admired through the rear sapphire glass, highlighting the blackened bridges.
The watch, which comes attached to a black FKM rubber strap with a deployment clasp matching the case, costs €9,990 (plus taxes) and is currently in a pre-order period which will be delivered at the end of January 2024.
