    They do look rather nice, but for some reason I feel that for a simple quartz with a digital display a bit expensive.

    Very tempted by that...

    It is expensive for a quartz, but in watches, there are many examples of things that cost far more than they need to, and people happily pay (even queue up to do so)...

    i’ve been looking at some of yema’s pieces lately, but these
    not my cup of tea, very retro and cool but not for me

    Looks great and the price doesn't seem too outrageous.

    Must admit, my interest dropped off a little once I realised it contained light emitting diodes rather than dildoes, as I initially read it.

    I prefer the Gerlach Kosmonauta - the display looks a little more authentic, at least in the photos. It's slightly cheaper too. I do like the look of the strap and clasp on the Yema.

    Very nice. Tempted by the silver.

    I am looking for something with a rounder, chunkier case though. Almost a Sub case with that display. Haven't found it...

    Likewise. Also applies to their analogue watches.

    They're probably targeting a certain market but it's a bit too fashion-watch for me. As for their retro digital watches, I'd rather go for the classic Casio digital watches. Proven utility and true retro watches.

    Blimey, another LED re-issue. The LED segments are a bit too thick for my liking on this one, still the WR100M is a bonus.

    It does feel a little like every week another watch brand is releasing a vintage inspired digital watch.

    I tried on their moonwatch about a year ago. I so wanted to love it. But it was just way too big for me. If only they would down size it!

    Interesting. Looks like its LED reissue wave nowadays - Gerlach, Bulova, Hamilton and now also Yema. I am not against it, in fact, I like it.
