Find out more about the brand
We’ve prominently seen Swiss and Japanese watch manufacturers dominate the market with countless solid offerings. Nevertheless, the French have also excelled in their watchmaking capabilities with innumerable outstanding watchmakers crafting incredibly sophisticated and beautifully decorated timepieces. One of these talented watchmakers includes Henry Louis Belmont, a methodical and pioneer French watchmaker that established his own legacy in 1948 when he founded the watch brand YEMA in Besançon, in the Doubs, the cradle of French watchmaking.
|Yema Digidisc Brown|
The YEMA Digidisc Brown is a modern reissue of the 70s model that bears a quirky space-age design highly distinguishable from the conventional watch design in the present day. Its squared angular design oozes a distinct vintage charm associated with many retro-futuristic elements. With a case diameter of 36mm, a lug to lug distance of 43mm, and a thickness of 10.65mm, the watch sits compactly on the wrist. However, the unique designs hold a bold wrist presence that will definitely grab the attention of many.

The YEMA logo is proudly signed on the crown as well as engraved neatly on the face of the piece without drawing too much focus away from the dial. The historic YEMA crest can be found on the screw-down case back as well, allowing the watch to achieve a water resistance of 100m. The watch comes fitted with a matching 24mm brushed stainless steel bracelet that adopts the style of the period, further emphasizing the vintage look.

The YEMA Digidisc Brown is powered by the second-generation in-house Caliber YEMA2000 automatic movement, a stepped-up variation of the MBP1000 Caliber. This magnificent movement yields slightly enhanced precision and durability with optimized components, giving the movement a healthy power reserve of approximately 42 hours. On top of that, movement is gorgeously decorated with stripes and stunning perlage finishing that reflects on their fine craft in producing an in-house movement.
