Thanks to the massive popularity of its in-house Caliber MBP1000, YEMA is now expanding on its self-made offerings, creating two new movements for horology enthusiasts: an upgraded three-hand caliber based on its previous model and a GMT caliber, the first of its kind for the French watchmaker.
Named the YEMA2000 and YEMA3000, the two new movements are entirely created in-house — designed, developed, and assembled by the company’s expert craftsman back in Morteau, France. Both will be carried by vintage-inspired timepieces tapping into the use of bronze in its construction. The YEMA2000 will power the Superman Steel Bronze, which as its name suggests combines a stainless steel case with a retro bronze bezel, paired with either a slate gray or deep green dial. The GMT on the other hand will grace the Superman GMT Bronze, boasting a case constructed completely from the material, a sapphire GMT bezel with either a gradient black or blue gilt dial, and an iconic “shovel” seconds hand.
Available for pre-orders between October 15 and November 7, each model will be limited to just 1,948 units — the year YEMA was founded. The three-hand model will go for $545 USD, while the GMT will be priced at $750 USD. Take a closer look at the new timepieces in the gallery above, and learn more over on the project’s Kickstarter page now.
