Yema Rallye: the race continues

Different bezels on the Yema Rallye

If we look cautious to the bezel you can spot slight minor departure from the Yema Rallye. Sufficiently interesting, the varieties share a ton for all intents and purpose with Omega Speedmaster bezel varieties. For instance: my Yema Rallye has a spot more than ninety bezel (like some pre 1970 Speedmasters), while the ‘Septa’ and ‘LeJour’ don’t. The text dimension and textual style weight likewise contrast. Look carefully to the ‘TACHYMETRE’ text and we can spot much more contrasts: other than the textual style weight the Yema-variant has a l’accent aigu (é) on the ‘E’, while the other two are composed without the sign.

30-and 45-minute counter

There are two varieties of the moment counter known on the Rallye with the Valjoux 7730 development: a 30-or a 45-minute counter at 3 o’clock. A few group say that the counter with a 45-minute scale is more extraordinary then the 30-minute variation, however I was unable to discover hard proof for this. So why 45 and 30 minutes? Perhaps changing of lap times in motorsports? 45 minutes turned out to be more famous? Please clear this up for me in the comments-segment underneath. ( ).

Funky subdials

The subdials are made for the prologue of the seventies: astounding, unreservedly and somewhat defiant. Still it commits to the congruity on the dial: it separates the dial in wonderful even pieces on the x-and y-pivot. Notwithstanding this general unconventional formed arrangement for the time, the decipherability remains and it mixes in flawlessly on the circle situated dial. With a touch of creative mind, you could say that the arrangement resembles a dashboard of a hustling vehicle. Once more, praise for the hustling link.

Finish flags

Definitely on of the most striking and perky subtleties are the completion hails just beneath the middle. A center component in the Rallye arrangement which underlines the dashing soul of the Patek Philippe Reviews once more. While missing on certain varieties, I’ve spotted around 4 varieties as far as position on the dial. In the even center we can spot them. Regularly I don’t care for components which are set without dividing between one another. However, for this situation I do like the way that the banners are on irrefutably the lower part of the white  sub-dial region.

Red hustling accents

The two hustling lines on the dial are inconspicuous and therefor don’t wreck the agreeable dial arrangement. As I would like to think, this detail keeps things fascinating and fun loving, without causing a lot unbalance. It helps me to remember the dark red striping highlights on dashing cars.

Servicing The Yema Rallye

Yema used three Valjoux chronograph developments in the Yema Rallye. No lavish developments, yet obvious solid workhorses. The movements are unsigned and consequently relative simple to support. A delicate Patek Philippe Reviews for the wallet! Under a sequential rundown of the pre-owned developments. Do you have augmentations or know Rallye models with an alternate development? Kindly inform us!

  1. Valjoux 7730 – A manual breeze chronograph development with 17 gems which beats at 18.000 A/h. It has a force save of 45 hours. The pushers trigger a cam for the chronograph capacities. The sub registers incorporate seconds at 9 and a 30-or 45-minute counter at 3. After Valjoux assimilated Venus they put together the 7730 with respect to the Venus 188 (from 1948) since it was less expensive to create on account of the cam rather than a segment wheel. Yema did produce 175.000 units somewhere in the range of 1966 and 1973.
  2. Valjoux 7733 – an upgraded cutting edge 7730
  3. Valjoux 7734 – an upgraded 7730 with a date wheel

Restoration of a Yema Rallye ‘project watch’

I as of late purchased a Yema Rallye as a ‘project watch’. Under an image. It has potential, however simply needs a cleaning administration and reclamation without supplanting unique parts. I’ve spotted  a parcel of residue under the plexi crystal and the chronograph seconds hand lume should be taken out (as this hand was a ‘skeleton’ hand regardless). One weeks from now the Patek Philippe Reviews will be reestablished by watchmaker Kalle Slaap . A Dutch watchmaker with a ton of involvement with reclamation of vintage Patek Philippe Reviews Curious?
