PATINA ROYALE~EARLY 70s YEMA DATEJUST SOUS MARINE

PATINA ROYALE~EARLY 70s YEMA DATEJUST SOUS MARINE

Regular price $0.00 $375.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A TOTALLY SWANKY EARLY 70s YEMA SOUS MARINE DATEJUST WITH AN AWESOME AGED BLUE DIAL. 

  • CASE: CLEAN AND CRISP SOLID STEEL CASE MEASURING 35.2mm NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 41.5mm LUG TO LUG. SUCH A SEXY SHAPE WITH A NOD TO THE ROLEX DATEJUST.  THE CONDITION ON THIS CASE IS UNREAL MAINTAINING ALL ITS SHARP LINES AND FACTORY ORIGINAL POLISHING ON THE TOP AND LUGS. THIS GUY WEARS MORE LIKE A 36-37mm WATCH DUE TO THE BEEFY LUGS AND THE THIN BEZEL/WIDE DIAL.
  • DIAL: GORGEOUS BLUE DIAL WITH A SUBTLE METALILIC VERTICAL BRUSHED FINISH. DEFINITELY SOME SIGNS OF AGING ON THIS ONE, BUT IT'S EVEN AND GIVES THIS ONE SO MUCH CHARACTER AS CAN BE SEEN IN THE PHOTOS. I DIG THOSE GROOVY APPLIED WHITE/STEEL MARKERS WHICH LOOK AWESOME PAIRED WITH THOSE LONG SANDWICH STYLE STICK HANDS. LUME PLOTS ARE TOTALLY INTACT AND ARE THE SAME CUSTARDY TONE AS THE TRITIUM ON THE DIAL. 
  • MOVEMENT: THIS WELL MANNERED GENT RUNS ON A FRENCH BASED FE AUTOMATIC WITH QUICKSET DATE WHICH IS KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME AND RUNS LIKE A CHAMP. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN BUT HAS BEEN BEHAVING WELL FOR DAYS OF ON/OFF WRIST OBSERVATION. 

THIS SOUS MARINE COMES ON A HANDSOME AGED LEATHER BROWN STRAP WHICH LOOKS AWESOME WITH THE PATINA OF THE DIAL.  YEMA IS ONE OF THE FAMOUS FRENCH BRANDS THAT WAS PUTTING OUT SOME NOTORIOUSLY AWESOME CHRONOS AND DIVERS IN THE 60s AND 70s. THIS SOUS MARINE SEEMS TO BE THE COMPANIES RESPONSE TO THE ROLEX DATEJUST BUT HAS JUST ENOUGH CHARACTER AND DISTINCTION TO REALLY SET ITSELF APART.
