A Brief History of Tutima



Tutima is a lesser-known German tool-watch brand, with a rich military history of producing pilot chronographs for German Air Forces during the second world war.

Rising from the ashes of the war-ravaged Glashütte watchmaking industry, Tutima is well-known for it’s pioneering efforts in developing the first German two-pusher flyback chronograph movement, known simply as the Calibre 59. By the end of WWII, Tutima had produced roughly 30,000 Flieger Chronographs with this movement, now highly prized by collectors of military history.

After the destruction of the Glashütte watch-making factories by Russian forces post-WWII, all of Tutima’s parts and machinery were relocated to Moscow as part of war reparations. In fact, Russian versions of the famous Tutima Flieger Chronograph made from remnants of the original stock parts can still be found today.

I got mine about 15 years ago. Aside from the crown only locking down with a quarter turn it hasn't lost a beat.
