The Wristmaster might be for you If you still miss the 70's.

I came to know Yema through one of their first Kickstarter campaigns and since then I'm following the company because I find what they are doing to be very interesting.

The cream dial Wristmaster is a watch I'm glad I managed to snatch because it looks very retro, wears very well on my wrist once I replaced the rather meh original strap with a ColaReb Spoleto, and because it's a nice compact watch that I can wear on most days of the week.

I really like that Yema put an acrylic crystal on top, whicj in this case is a better choice than a sapphire due to the superior optical quality of acrylic and the vintage look.

It even has decent loom, or at least - the hands do, I was a bit sceptic about the effectiveness of the tiny lume dots on the dial but they seem to do the job as long as I don't expect them to shine at 3 am.

Looks great. I don’t miss the 70s, but I’m starting to really like from that era.

It looks just like it's been in a drawer for 45 years. I do like 70's design watches.  What are the measurements of this one?

It reminds me of this new Rotary Avenger I tried on recently. A nice inexpensive quartz 70's style dress watch.

I really like the look of that one. Classic styling with a modern warranty is a win/win proposition. I really don't understand those who would never consider an acrylic crystal.  They clean up so easily and are inexpensive to replace.  Mineral crystal, the alleged improvement over acrylic, is really the worst option.

Well to be honest I don't miss the 70's either. I jus miss parts of my childhood from the 70.

I like acrylic crystals because of their superior clarity, lack of reflections and the ease with which they can be shaped into various forms. They are also extraordinary resilient and able to absorb tremendous mechanical shocks.

Their only downside is the same plasticity that makes scratching them so easy, but as you mentioned, it's ridiculously easy to buff and clean them and I also discovered that 1-2 drops of liquid glass applied occasionally go a long way toward improving their scratch resistance.

One of the nicer things that Yema does is publishing the full schematics and measures of their watches on their website. But just to save you the time the case diameter is 37mm and the L2L is 48mm.
