Old Yema pocket watch

Recommended Posts

Digging through my father's things I found an old pocket watch. It hasn't ran for at least 20 years, so I won't start the movement now. I tried to find the exact model but I haven't been successful, if you have some info I'd love to hear from you!

I'm going to, at some point next week probably, have it serviced and repair, even though it's probably not worth much. Here's a couple of pics

Yema is a French watch company founded in 1948 in Besançon (Doubs) by Henry Louis Belmont. Wikipedia has a useful historical entry for Yema and interestingly, the company was owned for a while by Seiko, between 1988 and 2004. It might prove difficult to find the identical model to your own pocket watch although at the time when your watch was produced, Yema was on the rise. In the later 1960s, the firm was the leading exporter of French watches, selling 500,000 units annually in 50 countries. Yema is still going and the firm might be able to provide you with more exact information about your particular watch.

Thanks, massive help! I'll keep you posted once I know more about the  model, but I'd really like to have this watch ticking.
