Yema Spacegraf Zero-G (Price, Pictures and Specifications)
In 1982, the first Western-European astronaut, Jean-Loup Chrétien, was sent into space wearing on his wrist a Yema chronograph. In 1985 NASA's Discovery shuttle took off with Patrick Baudry on board and a Yema on his wrist for the first Franco-American orbital flight mission.
Since then, Yema continuously collaborates with France’s Space Agency (CNES) in designing chronographs to equip French astronauts. Today Yema introduces the new Spacegraf Zero-G to commemorate the 30th anniversary of French simulated microgravity (weightlessness) flights.
The Spacegraf Zero-G has been tested in real conditions during France’s Space Agency parabolic flights helping the scientific crew to anticipate the recurrent zero G phases thanks to the chronograph function. The new Spacegraf Zero-G is available in 3 variants at yema.com.
Time Instruments for France's Space Agency and France's Air Force
Through long-standing collaborations with France's Space Agency and France's Air Force, Yema equips national astronauts and fighter pilots with military grade watches designed and built to military personnel specifications.
Designed to meet the strict requirements of Zero-G flights' crew members, this new Spacegraf combines perfect readability at all times with high precision. The chronograph feature allows precise reading of G periods during parabolic flights and easiness-of-use when in weightlessness.
The caseback is engraved with France's Space Agency (CNES) official logo and markings to commemorate both the 30th anniversary of parabolic flights and Yema's first French watch sent Into space.
