The YEMA Superman Worldtime builds on the reputation of its "indestructible" Superman Heritage dive watch (a near perfect reproduction of the 1963 icon), and more recently on the ETA-powered Superman Heritage GMT (2019). The main difference here--other than colourways--is the introduction of the YEMA 3000, an all-new in-house GMT movement from the brand.
Lim and Hailos produce primarily water-resistant sports watches of the highest quality for prices within reach of the enthusiast community. And each release, in its own small way, is treated like the launch--if you'll excuse the paradox--of a microbrand icon. The Fairwind is no exception.
In 2019, after a successful Kickstarter campaign, Aevum released its second automotive-inspired watch, the Advance. The Carbon Limited is the latest in this new series and maintains all of the automotive references of the original Advance. Its name refers to ignition timing, or the moment a spark plug fires during its compression stroke to provide more power.
