Tempting Teutonic Timekeepers

from Tutima!  Sorry, just couldn't resist the alliteration ; )

This is the Saxon One Chronograph from Tutima.  I got to try it on in person, and it was fantastic!

The case is different - but that is part of the attraction.  Not another round flieger, but something with a bit of sophistication and presence.

The case is stainless steel and measures 43 mm.  The movement is noted as the Cal. Tutima 521.  A self-winding ti-compax chronograph.

I love the case on this series, but I REALLY love the dial and strap combination of this particularly piece.  The daily color is not grey, or metal, or some other "MANLY-MAN" descriptor.  No, in keeping with the unique elegance of this watch, the color of the dial is known as Opalin anthracite.  I like that!

Water resistant to 20 atmospheres with "integrated" push pieces for the chronograph functions.  This watch is special.

Here are the "pertinents", straight from Tutima -
