Time is now part of an exclusive group of German watchmakers dedicated to preserving Glashütte's long-standing horological history. Professional timekeepers from the company are distinguished for their durability, functionality, and dependability. Their classic collections include noble, attractive, and precise dress timepieces that adhere to Glashütte's classical watchmaking design rules. The firm also produces high-complication clocks such as minute repeaters and fly-back chronographs in addition to its conventional lines.
Tutima's history is intrinsically related to that of Glashütte, the German city where Ferdinand Adolph Lange began the watch manufacturing in 1845.
The Flieger Classic Chronograph, a re-edition of the iconic Tutima Flieger chronograph from 1941, was introduced in 1994. Time returned to Glashütte in 2011 with the establishment of Tutima Glashütte SA. Hommage, the first true made-in-Glashütte minute repeater, was launched to commemorate this momentous event. The Verband Deutsche Manufakturen e. V. awarded Tutima Glashütte the Manufacture of the Year award in 2018. (Association of German Manufactures).
For a long time, the time has been linked to the exciting world of maritime sports and sailing events. Not only does the company provide excellent professional water sports timekeepers, but it also sponsors world-class athletic events. Time has been the Official Timekeeper for the Kieler Woche Regattas, the world's largest annual sailing competition, since 2005. The German watchmaker established its squad in 2009. Tutima's sailing team participates in international regattas on a 14-meter dk46 racing cruiser with an all-female crew.
The German watchmaking business, based in Glashütte, has an impressive selection that includes everything from military-grade sports watches to classic dress timepieces. M2, Grand Flieger, Patria, Saxon One, and Sky are currently Tutima's most important flagship lines.
The re-edition, the M2, goes above and beyond these requirements. The Swiss caliber Lémania 5100 kept the time in the 1984 classic. We've merged our Tutima 521 caliber into the M2 as this is no longer in production. It is protected by a pure titanium case with a robust sapphire crystal coated with anti-reflective treatment and an extra mu-metal casing that is pressure-proofed to 30 atm. Magnetic field streams are bound by this nickel-iron alloy and do not reach the movement. The integrated pushbuttons have neoprene inlays with grooves.
Saxon One is a range of "Made in Glashütte" sports watches with a contemporary design. This Tutima line introduced an entirely new look in the world of German-made sports watches by being both muscular and stylish. These stainless steel clocks, which come in chronograph and day-date varieties, incorporate the company's self-winding movements with enhanced shock-proof protection. These painstakingly constructed time watch models have a three-dimensional, pyramid-shaped case front capped with a delicately sculpted spinning bezel and are water-resistant to 200 meters. Between two high flanks, the screw-in crown is firmly protected. Its chronograph models have integrated pushers.
The case of the Saxon One chronograph is 43 mm, while the case of the day-date model is 42 mm. Under the Saxon One M brand, the Saxon One line has been offering cheap 40 mm, day-date models, since 2017. Ladies' watches with 36 mm diameter cases and diamond-set bezels are also available in the Saxon One collection. Water-resistance is 100 meters for both the Saxon One M and Saxon One Lady watch. The time Saxon One clocks come with stainless steel link bracelets or hand-stitched alligator straps and feature highly faceted light-catching shapes.
Tutima Grand Flieger is a special edition for professionals and fans that pays homage to the German brand's long history with aviation. This line of watches is based on the historical Tutima pilot watches and delivers a high level of dependability and technicality. Grand Flieger Classic, Grand Flieger Airport, and Flieger Automatic are the three families that makeup Tutima's Grand Flieger collection.
The Tutima Grand Flieger is a modern take on a Tutima pilot's chronograph from the 1940s. It was the first German chronograph to include timing and Tempostopp (fly back) feature, and it was powered by the UROFA 59 caliber.
The contemporary innovations from the Grand Flieger classic series feature 43 mm diameter solid stainless steel cases capped with bidirectional rotating, fluted bezels, and are available in chronograph and day-date versions. The Grand Flieger Airport models have a smooth rotating bezel with 60-minute divisions and luminous markers, giving them a modern look. Water-resistance is 200 meters for both the Classic and Airport variants. The Flieger Automatic variant sports a 41 mm case with no bezel and 100-meter water resistance. Self-winding mechanisms are housed in these clocks, which come with a stainless steel bracelet or a leather strap.
Classic mechanical wristwatches with graceful dimensions and superb mechanisms are available in the Tutima Patria series. This particular line emphasizes the Glashütte watchmaking region's long horological legacy. These watches come in stainless steel or 18-carat gold casings and have modest intricacies like subsidiary seconds, dual time, or power reserve. Patria watches' skillfully constructed movements, as well as their finishing, engraving, and decorations, proudly showcase Glashütte's watchmakers' horological brilliance. The highly made dial, together with hand-finished hands, adds class to each of these superb manual-wound watches, making them both elegant and clutter-free.
Exclusive limited editions of horological masterpieces are also produced by the company, which naturally incorporate the most illustrious Glashütte watchmaking traditions. Tutima debuted the HOMMAGE Minute Repeater in 2011. This amazing mechanical timepiece was restricted to 20 rose gold and 5 platinum pieces and was equipped with the first German wristwatch caliber featuring a minute repeater. The Tempostopp model was launched in rose gold 18 carats as a limited edition in 2017. Tutima's new in-house Caliber T659, based on the famous Glashütte UROFA Caliber 59 from the 1940s, is housed in this superb mechanical hand-wound chronograph.
Tutima makes extraordinary clocks that incorporate state-of-the-art technology and superior production skills while respecting the centuries-old history of the historic watchmaking region. The company is proud of its extensive experience in making both professional timepieces and traditional classic watches. Both require time-honored watchmaking expertise, meticulous attention to detail, exact handcrafting, and excellent finishing.
These clocks are equipped with high-end movements that bear the hallmarks of the world-famous 'Made in Glashütte' mechanical calibers. All Tutima watches have a transparent sapphire crystal case back, which allows you to admire the beautiful finishing and engravings on these horological systems.
