    I impulse-purchased the blue/grey. I've been wanting a GMT travel watch for a while and this one fit the bill perfectly. Can't wait to get it later this year!

    i really dislike yema's second hand.

    seems like they bought them from offrei..and that's all i can think off when i see them. i want it removed in favor of practically anything else

    i do however like the look of the bracelet

    I was tempted in the build up to the release and also liked the blue/grey bezel but in the end just couldn't justify the price...looking forward to receiving a bronze later in the year though :)

    Nope that was the heritage bronze... These were considerably more....sadly!

    really nice look, ETA movement, TBH I feel like the crown could get pretty annoying digging into my hand.

    Nice for the price - but it's also a tad expensive for Yema's brand presence... I'd probably just save up for a Tudor pepsi second hand personally (I was looking at the Yema Pepsi)

    I doubt the crown will be a problem, the watch will probably sit just high enough on the wrist that it won't bother. As far as the Tudor, well, this is half the price and can be serviced by any competent watchmaker - I like the Tudor and probably would have gone for one eventually, but the issues they've been having with the date mechanism coupled with the fact that it has to be sent back to Tudor for any service kinda held me back. Then when this came around I went for it instead

    I was looking at the blue/grey one as well bc i don't like the beefiness of the case on the Tudor BB GMT. Looks very nice in pictures but was a bit worried about the fit/finish on it. Can one of the buyers post pictures please?

    I am trying to find a GMT that I like. I really liked the look of the YEMA and that it was limited to 100, but at $1500, that has me continuing my investigation.

    Rolex Pepsi - to damn expensive.
    Tudor GMT - I tried one on, it just did not do it for me.

    GO Sport GMT - really love the look of this one, but I am really hesitant on spending that much money without trying it on first.

    I also like the PO 43.5mm GMT, the one with white and black bezel. I rarely see these on the used market, and I have the Blue PO 8900. So I do not really think that one is a realistic option unless I sold/traded the blue PO.

    I'm in a bit of the same boat. I think at this point I'm content to save up for either the Nomos Zurich or Tangente GMT. I tried on a blue Zurich and it was fantastic on the wrist. The button mechanism is also amazingly smooth.

    Cool, have always thought the superman was awesome but combined with are colored bezel:rolleyes:. Since these are limited editions aren't some people just buying these as an kind of investment? I see the grey/blue one is already sold out!

    I was able to pre-order the grey/blue version before they went live, and was lucky enough to reserve my father's birthday (#48 - 4th of August). It will be my first GMT and Yema, so I'm pretty excited.

    Looks like these have started shipping. Someone in the Yema group on Facebook just posted a pic. Anyone receive theirs yet?

    I got an email this morning with the same, but I'm in California and so it'd have been the end of the day for them in FR. Look forward to seeing how quickly it'll get here; a work trip of the exact type I bought it for is coming up next weekend so fingers crossed.
