FS: Vintage Yema Daytona valjoux 92 - Autavia case style

or sale is a rare version of Yema Daytona valjoux 92

Yema, a French watch company is well known for their yatchingraf and rallye. But they also produced a beautiful reverse panda dial chronograph, affectionally known as the Yema Daytona, in the mid 1960s. What I have is the first execution of this watch. It is powered by Valjoux 92 (unsigned) and a gloss dial. This version is known to be in production for only 2 years. After which, yema changed the dial to matte and powered by Valjoux 773x series. This version is hard to come by and are limited in numbers especially one that is in this condition.

Case size: 39mm
Lug to lug: 47mm
Lug width: 19mm


Case: very nice I believe unpolished, same style eith the early Autavia.
Dial: beautiful glossy dial no stain or marks, uncommon compared to later matte dial
Hands: original, red tip on chronohand
Bezel: as picture, the triangle lume was lost so I asked my watchmaker to apply some lume to match the dial.
Caseback: original plain caseback with serie number intact
Crown and pusher: original
Movement: running fine, crown winds, chrono set and stop, however I cant guarantee since it is a vintage piece, my watchmaker did a simple service before. Up to new buyer to do a through service.
