YEMA’s CEO & Head of Design, Christopher Bôle, has worked on an unprecedented, contemporary Wristmaster version equipped with the In-house Caliber YEMA2000, designed as a luxury stainless steel sport watch with integrated bracelet that works both on formal occasions as well as everyday wear.
The steel case has the shape of an asymmetrical octagon. YEMA has used the complex case geometry to our advantage by executing every single angle with the same set of alternating brushed-polished finishes.
The bezel is inspired by a YEMA Sous-Marine quartz model from the 1980’s and is made from a single piece of stainless steel, yet it has three separate finishes, with the top and bottom bevels featuring an elegant vertical brushing and an entirely polished transition where the bezel’s horizontal and vertical surfaces meet.
The continuous pattern of vertical brushed surfaces and polished angles naturally extends all the way from the top of the bezel, to the case and further into the integrated steel bracelet, creating the appearance of seamless integration. The gently tapered links on the integrated bracelet continue the effect, vertical brushed surfaces continue meeting polished angles all the way to the butterfly clasp.
Gear Patrol has this watch featured in their buying guide, Gear Patrol.
