This week is turning into a rather eventful one for the French Navy. Within the watch world, at least. We caught wind earlier this week that Tudor has once again begun a formal relationship with Marine Nationale (something we’ll be keeping a very close eye on), and just today YEMA has revealed a collection of Navygraf Marine Nationale watches featuring their insignia on the dial. The navy blue Navygraf gets 4 variants with both quartz and automatic movement options, providing plenty of options for La Royale forces.
The French Navy, or Marine Nationale in French (La Royale informally), has a legendary history for the watches they’ve received from partners like Doxa, Longes, Omega, G-Shock, and most famously Tudor. Watchistry’s book on the subject, Marine Nationale, details a handful of the most iconic and is definitely worth a look if you’re interested in the history. Today, Yema enters that prestigious list with their Navygraf Marine Nationale.
