YEMA’s LED watches from the ’70s might not be as renowned as the Bulova Computron, but they’re no less stunning. Recently, the French watch brand has made a comeback via crowdfunding, and they’ve just reissued their 1970 LED watches in high style. These iconic timepieces emerged during the quartz watch boom, and they’re a testament to original thinking in watchmaking that eschewed mechanical movements and delivered something truly futuristic. Now, the watch is brilliantly retro, and the bright red LED display echoes the original version. The case is brushed stainless steel and retains the angular look, while modern engineering gives it 330 feet of water resistance and scratch and impact-resistant mineral crystal screen. The LED display remains in standby mode to conserve battery life, and the side button cues up the time, date, and seconds. It comes in both silver and gold versions, and we highly recommend getting both.
