Tutima Glashütte: Back to the roots
With Tutima Glashütte, the 2018 "Manufacturer of the Year" has returned to its roots in Glashütte. As early as 1927, the watch manufacturers UROFA and UFAG produced exquisite timepieces here under the name Tutima. Production was moved to Ganderkesee in Lower Saxony after the war, but the company returned to Glashütte – the famous watch town and the brand’s original home in 2011. Tutima Glashütte was the first watch brand in Germany to develop its own wristwatch minute repeater.
Tutima Glashütte today
Today, the manufacturer offers four very different collections: Saxon One, Grand Flieger, M2, and Patria. Tutima Glashütte's flagship is the Saxon One, which sets completely new accents within in its pyramid-shaped cut bezel. The M2 is the new edition of the Nato chronograph. The Grand Flieger commemorates Tutima's first aviator chronograph from 1941.
A touch of nostalgia
The Glashütte-based brand focuses on the production of ultramodern watches in contemporary design. With fine details, such as a fluted bezel or railway track minute scale, Tutima Glashütte also pays homage to history. The functional watches, on the other hand, are entirely geared to the future: Good readability, reliable functions, optimum water-resistance as well as magnetic field protection and resistance to sudden changes in air pressure are just some of the quality features. The fine complications and challenging sports chronographs can be found online and in selected showrooms.
