Tutima was established in 1927 by Dr Ernst Kurtz, the overseer of Uhren-Rohwerke-Fabrik (UROFA) and the Uhrenfabrik Glashütte AG (UFAG). His best developments got the name “Tutima”, got from the Latin word for “safe, secure.” In the last part of the 1930s, the Saxon brand got a commission for its first pilot’s chronograph – something that would become one of the brand’s specialities. For Baselworld 2019, Tutima proceeds with its long custom of flying impacted plans and presents the new Tutima Flieger, a flexible, dynamic and slick three-hander at an entry-level price.
As you would anticipate from a pilot’s watch, the dial includes a utilitarian format giving sharp neatness. It is outlined with mallet hour markers and Arabic numerals matched with capsule molded hands. The mark three-sided record to find the 12 o’clock sign is available alongside the liberally lumed dial and hands to help clients read the time in any light conditions. Distinctive dial alternatives are accessible, including a “night green” inclination dial alongside dark or anthracite dials. The red or orange numerals to demonstrate the minutes bring an energetic touch.
Measuring 41mm in measurement, the dynamic round steel case is straightforward, exemplary and pleasantly planned. It includes short carries and a strong inclining bezel outlining a sapphire precious stone with hostile to intelligent treatment. The enormous, simple to-work screw-down crown is engraved with the Tutima logo. The caseback is in a bad way and the water-obstruction is of 100m/10 ATM.
Turning the watch over, the display caseback uncovers the programmed type Tutima 330 development (in view of the utilitarian and dependable ETA 2836). It shows the hours, minutes and seconds halfway. The date is demonstrated at 6 o’clock. Working at 28,800 vibrations each hour or 4Hz, it conveys 38 hours of force save. The controller includes an erratic screw for fine change. The rotor is embellished with a Tutima “T” gold seal.
The new Tutima Flieger has an appealing outdated look combined with a portion of advancement. It is completed either with an exemplary calfskin leather tie with white sewing or with a steel arm band with a cleaned focal connection. Cost for this moderate all-rounder is set at EUR 1,350 on a leather tie and EUR 1,600 on a steel wristband. For more data, if it’s not too much trouble, visit www.tutima.com .
