Meet the Urban Field, Yema’s Contemporary Take on the Field Watch

Launched last month, Yema’s new Urban Field watch embodies the contemporary adventurer’s need for versatility, melding tool watch functionality with the sophisticated design code of a dress watch. Its military-inspired design is characterized by an ultra-readable dial that is available in five versatile colorways. 

Creating versatility in its new design, Yema is offering the Urban Field in two diameters: 37.5mm and 40mm. Each maintains a 7.8mm thickness and is made from polished steel. The sleek visual quality of the exterior is one that Yema accomplished for the sake of versatility, making it easy to wear everyday as well as with a suit. The Urban Field is available with three distinct strap and bracelet options, each offering a customizable approach to the military-style adventurer watch.

The dial is inspired by field military dials, known for their straightforward layout and utmost legibility. All of the odd numbered hours are marked with Arabic numerals, while the remaining values are represented by geometric indices. Each of the hour markers and the hands are coated in Super-LumiNova that make them visible in low light conditions. Completing the functionality of the dial is a seconds track that spans across its periphery. Aesthetically, the dial has a dynamic texture created by sandblasting that contrasts the smooth polishing of its exterior. For coloring, Yema is making the new Urban Field in five new hues, including white, black, vibrant blue, lush medium green, and a mustard yellow-gold. 

Powering the Urban Field is the caliber SW210-1b from Sellita. It is a hand-wound mechanical movement with an accuracy rate of  +/- 7 seconds daily. Capable of indicating hours, minutes, and seconds, the mechanism offers a power reserve of 45 hours. The movement is visible via an exhibition caseback, revealing its upgraded Elaboré and decorated finish inclusive of blue screws and Geneva stripes. 

Pricing for the Yema Urban Field begins at $1,099 for the iteration presented on a Bonklip steel bracelet and $1,249 when secured by a Beads of rice steel bracelet. Each option comes with an additional Urban leather strap as well.
