Yema, the very well-known french brand, has manufactured some of the most iconic sports watches from all time. From the Yema Rallye (wore by famous race car driver Mario Andretti) to the Yachtingraf or to the Flygraf, they focused on every aspect of sports that they could find, no matter if it was for sea, sky or land.
Yema made seven different execution of the Yachtingraf. This particular one, is the second execution, which featured the ‘Patent Pending’ dial and a Valjoux 7733 (or 7730). The second execution came with three different types of case backs, one made for the French regatta team, signed ‘Fournisseur Officiel de l’équipe de France de Vouile 1970’, other with the Yema logo on it, and a plain case back signed 100% waterproof 10 atmospheres; the watch offered has the latter.
It is estimated that between 100-200 units were made. So, although not very rare to find among all the Yema Yachtingrafs, in the grand scheme of things, it is a pretty rare watch.
