YEMA's French Manufacture Caliber is a precision-engineered movement designed in Switzerland and meticulously developed in France by their expert watchmakers. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the bridges and mainplates are manufactured in YEMA's workshops in Morteau. This caliber boasts an ultra-thin profile, measuring just 3.70mm in thickness, thanks to its smart architecture, making it ideal for sleek and refined watch cases. Offering exceptional accuracy, it maintains a performance range of -3 / +7 seconds, approaching near chronometer-certified levels. The movement features an impressive 70-hour power reserve, achieved through innovative technologies such as a tungsten micro-rotor and a large barrel.
