Yema is coming back...

Post by hoppyjr » Tue Jun 19, 2018 6:37 am

Here is the 1:1 reissue of the Superman. Other than the goofy 19mm lug width I like it. Priced at about $1150 US (mineral crystal) or $1300 US (sapphire crystal) it seems like a reasonable deal.

That is cool. Wish you could get one with a plexi crystal.

I do like the size. But....I guess with Seiko, I’m so used to seeing an arrowhead hour hand, the minute hand kinda throws me.
If someone tells you "Anal leakage sounds like fun", have him list a watch for sale on WUS.

Wonder if it'll be any better than the embarrassingly bad Alsta re-issue?

Proportions also seem off, but if that's how the original was designed, who am I to judge?

Wilson watch works already has some of their stuff. Not bad except for the mineral crystal.
