In 1948, Henry Louis Belmont, a methodical and pioneering French watchmaker, built his own watchmaking company under the name Yema. Mr Belmont graduated top of his class from the National Watchmaking School of Besancon.
Yema Superman was developed in 1963 for diving professionals. It was considered indestructible and was chosen by the French Air Force to equip its pilots.
At the same time, the first Yema Rally Graf was introduced, which was worn by Formula 1 champion Mario Andretti.
At the beginning of 1970, Yema became the official supplier of the French Sailing Federation and equipped the French national team that took part in the 1972 Olympic Games.
Yema is synonymous with high quality watches, avant-garde French design at very affordable prices.
