Yema Introduces a Wide Range of Field Watches to Their Urban Sport Collection

As it is currently constructed, Yema’s Urban Sport watch collection is made up of two models – the Wristmaster Micro Rotor and the Wristmaster Traveller. Both use an octagonal profile, a unique bit-like fixed bezel and an integrated steel bracelet design. Besides the dial, their in-house movements which include the micro rotor equipped CMM.20 (a brand first) and the YEMA2000 are what distinguishes each model. But if a more traditional, round-cased silhouette with a splash of neo-vintage character is what you’re after, then this incoming batch hitting Yema’s Urban Sport collection might tickle your fancy.

The new Yema Urban Field comprises ten watches with five various dial colors, two different case sizes, and a Swiss manual winding movement. In the world of sport-casual field watches, there has always been this ongoing debate as to what is the appropriate case size for a solid everyday wearing field watch. Those who lean strongly towards the purist end of the spectrum might say 36mm, or bust. The enthusiast who prefers a more contemporary wearing watch might argue that 40mm is the way to go. Whatever your preference is, Yema is looking to cover the entire ground by offering a svelte 37.5mm case and a modern 40mm case, respectively.


Both the 37.5mm and 40mm case sizes get the same set of five dial colorways. Each dial is embellished with a sandblasted finish that provides a sea of grainy-like texture that surrounds the more muted appearance of both the markers and minute track. A proper field watch features a dial that must be legible at a glance. Yema does exactly that by demarcating odd hour markers with numerals, even hour markers with circular plots, and a horizontal bar at six. The blue, black and green dial variations utilize a set of white accented markers and minute track, while the white and gold dials get a black accented contrast.

The case is served as a sapphire sandwich. A double-domed sapphire crystal harkens to the vintage inspiration and the sapphire exhibition caseback gives the Urban Field a little dose of “neo” ambiance. Both models are mechanically supported by the manual winding Sellita SW210-1b. Though the Urban Field does not utilize an in-house Yema movement which typically comes with an aesthetic flare, this particular Sellita movement is dolled up with blue screws and decorated mechanical components.

The condensed version of the Urban Field will come on a steel Bonklip bracelet. From the provided photos, this doesn’t look like your Father’s Bonklip. Each link has a set of curved edges and appears to be polished to a tee. The bigger Urban Field sibling delivers on a sure-to-be drapey six link steel bracelet. Each model also comes with an additional leather strap and a Yema strap changing tool.

The pre-order window for the entire Yema Urban Field watch has already begun on Yema’s website. The 37.5mm Urban Field retails at $1,099 and the 40mm version comes in at $1,249. Yema
