The James, featured here, is lovingly named after the city’s north-south thoroughfare which begins at edge of Lake Ontario and culminates at the Niagara Escarpment. Today it is an avenue of coffee houses, restaurants, pubs, and art galleries, reflecting the ever changing and vibrant city.
Besides having great dimensions, the VM1S.601 comes with a manual-wound Sellita SW510 movement that beats at 28,800 BPH (4Hz) and offers 58 hours of power reserve. I love the fact that Nezumi went with a Swiss Made caliber from a reputable movement manufacturer.
Of course, the main talking point here is the YEMA3000 calibre at the heart of this piece. The in-house movement has made appearances in the Worldtimer and Hertiage GMT collections previously and allows the wearer—in conjunction with the 24-hour bezel insert—to track a total of three time zones. However, this caller-GMT has never been used in a 50BAR watch before. In fact, this combination of water resistance and GMT function place the Superman 500 GMT among small school of fish.
