Tutima is a brand that, as of not long ago, was for the most part known for two things: being situated in Germany’s sanctuary of watches, a.k.a. Glashütte, and for being a supplier of very cool Flieger watches (WWII-roused pilot chronographs). However, things are changing at Tutima, as we’ve seen with the amazing Tempostopp and Patria , or with the as of late presented Saxon assortment. This watch, the Tutima Saxon One Chronograph is currently accessible with a blue dial, adding to the model’s general contemporary look. We investigate this lively, yet exquisite time-stopper.
Named after the locale which is home to Tutima (editor’s note, the brand was established in Glashutte, Saxony, in 1927), the Saxon one is a cutting edge, smoothed out, pad molded chronograph highlighting a middle chronograph minute-hand, a mysteriously uncommon and valuable capacity – particularly regarding neatness. Close by the white and anthracite dial, it is presently accessible with a striking, energetic blue dial. Note that this model additionally exists in a female variant, which was looked into by Roberta here .
Blue-blood – If the actual watch is in fact indistinguishable from the current model, the new “Regal Blue” dial adds an authoritative bit of honorability. The shade of blue sits somewhere close to naval force and 12 PM blue; the dial includes a decent format with faceted hour records, sub-dials with metallic rings and printed white markings. The minutes are demonstrated on the rib introduced in a comparative blue. It is matched with rich hour and moment spear hands. The chronograph hands are introduced in differentiating red (for the focal second, the focal moment and the 12-hour counter at 6). Some iridescent material considers improved readability in the dark.
The Saxon One Chronograph is fueled by the Tutima type 521, in light of the Valjoux 7750. In any case, the universal, amazing workhorse chronograph is significantly changed by Tutima to impersonate the elements of the Lemania 5100, which has been being used for quite a while at Tutima for its military chronographs.
A helpful component, the focal moment sign is instinctive and can be perused initially (unlike for conventional chronographs that have clarity issues with their little sub-dials). An element excessively since a long time ago saved to guide watches and that is presently utilized on an extravagance sports watch. Smart and in accordance with the brand’s DNA. Note the presence of a 24-hour marker at 12, which fills in as a day-and-night function.
Sporty and exquisite simultaneously, the Saxon One is described by its dynamic and structural pad molded case. It includes an unmistakable pyramid-formed bezel and domed sapphire gem. The level chronograph pushers are coordinated into the case band, giving a spotless look. The turning bezel includes a red imprint that can be lined up with the moment hand to time a given event.
Crafted in steel and estimating 43mm in width, it includes a screw-in crown and its water opposition is evaluated to 200m (more than adequate for 99% of things to come owners). Turning the watch over, the display case-back offers a pleasant view on the programmed development, with its unmistakable cam-and-switch instrument. The adornment is very straightforward, except for a decent, customized open-worked rotor.
The consistent coordination between the case and the arm band with H-molded connections makes it comfortable to wear. It is likewise accessible with a gator tie, gotten with a collapsing fasten. For more data, visit www.tutima.com .
