I have to give credit where credit is due.  I had never heard of Yes Watch until I wrote the post on the Martin Braun Eos, and a reader suggested their timepieces as an alternative.  One obviously benefit is that they’re quartz (rather than mechanical) so they’ll be a lot easier to adjust should you move, travel, or pick one up on the secondary market.

For this post, I’ve selected the World Watch II to focus on.

While initially quite simplistic to read (just look at the digital display to tell the time), close examination will reveal that there’s more to what this dial is telling you.  In addition to the standard time, you can also tell:

  • When sunrise and sunset are
  • Where in the appropriate solar or lunar cycle you are in
  • It can also keep track of your home and away locations, automatically

For further details on how this all works, I really would recommend that you visit their website.  You also see rather quickly that these prices are a lot higher than you’d normally expect for a quartz watch – this one in particular starts at $595.  You do get additional rubber and leather bands – and if nothing else, you pick up an amazing amount of technology and timekeeping to place on your wrist and keep you on schedule as you jaunt around.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. I own a Yes World Watch. The buttons stopped working reliably not long after the 2 yr warranty expired. I sent it in for repair several times over the next year or so, but the buttons never worked reliably. The last time the buttons stopped responding at all the day after I received it back. I gave up and replaced it with a much cheaper but more reliable Casio Pathfinder, which also doesn’t require frequent battery changes.
    The Yes Watches are a great design, but such an expensive watch should last a lot longer and come with a longer warranty.
