Tutima Glashütte has added a beautiful new model with a blue enamel dial in a stainless steel case to its collection of manufacture watches. Entirely in keeping with the Patria tradition, this youngest member of the exquisite watch family embodies mechanical and aesthetic perfection.
The Tutima Patria Admiral Blue is a dress watch and therefore unmistakably elegant. But also not too elegant; this watch is not only a great addition to any suit, but should also perfectly complement a jeans and t-shirt-look.
The dark blue, enamelled dial captivates the viewer of the Tutima Patria Admiral Blue at first glance. In order to achieve an absolutely even surface and an outstanding gloss, several individual applications of enamel, each layer followed by polishing, are required. This lustrous enamel background contrasts beautifully with the stainless steel hands and the applied indexes. At six o’clock, Tutima has placed the small seconds hand. The dark blue dial is very reduced and beautifully proportioned, providing excellent legibility.
The dial is protected by an anti-reflective sapphire crystal.
Like in the classic rose gold models of the Patria series, the gold-plated manufacture Caliber Tutima 617 can be admired through the transparent crystal case back. The Glashütte three-quarter plate’s spacious surface is adorned with a uniformly banded pattern that accentuates three ruby bearings in screwed gold settings. The balance-cock is skeletonized and the bevelled edges are meticulously polished by hand.
The mechanical movement operates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour and provides a power reserve of at least 65 hours. Tutima also makes it in variants that include complications such as power-reserve displays or a second time zone, but in this form here, it is Tutima’s basic mechanical movement, exclusively responsible for displaying hours, minutes and seconds.
The stainless steel case is perfectly proportioned. It has a diameter of 43 mm and comes with a dark blue alligator leather strap. The case, as well as the restrained bezel, are polished to a high gloss. The case is water resistant up to 5 atm.
The Tutima Patria Admiral Blue is characterized by precision, quality and master craftsmanship from Glashütte. With a price of €4,900, this watch is a real bargain – made possible by the stainless steel case.
