When I purchased the Wristmaster from Yema it was mostly because of the cream dial with its peculiar peg like indices. Together with the longhand script at the bottom it gave an impression of old school charm that I could not resist. Especially since in my case "old school" is exactly what it is, since this script style is what I was taught in France when I learned to write.
But my first impression was a bit more mixed because it took me some time to realize that the slightly weird bezel that I thought was fitted to the case was just an illusion.
There is no bezel. The crystal is a very tall boxed acrylic (something which can't be done with another material) and its thick base creates light's refractions that gives the impression that there is a bezel.
The Wristmaster is very much inspired by the 70's and you can see plenty of similarities with some of the excellent vintage Seiko from the collection of @Whitesalmon which are on an almost daily display in the WRUW section.
But beneath the vintage looking acrylic and case is a very modern YEMA2000 movement, which is roughly the equivalent of an ETA 2824.
The same flat boxed acrylic is also responsible for an unmatched clarity that is free of reflection, which makes the Wristmaster one of the easiest to shoot on camera.
It's also a very good daily companion and it goes very well with a cup of dark coffee in the morning. I may have left France as a kid but there are things in life that stick with you even when you get old.
