Tutima M2 Chronograph

Quite often when I travel to a European holiday resort, I observe street vendors selling counterfeit handbags, sunglasses and belts. These items may bear the name of a designer brand but sadly they are fake. The problem with fake products is they invariably lack quality, functionality and longevity.

There are some chronographs which while authentic, lack the necessary attributes for extreme conditions. They masquerade as something they are not. However, the Tutima M2 Chronograph features a tough titanium case, a soft-iron inner case and a maximum water resistance of 300 metres, making it the genuine article.

Tutima has an impressive track record making professional timing instruments. The brand from Glashütte developed the NATO chronograph in 1984, adhering to the requirements of the German procurement office. This watch is the official service watch of the German army’s pilots. The original NATO chronograph featured a Lémania 5100 movement. As the production of this movement has now ceased, Tutima have chosen to endow the M2 with its own caliber, the Tutima 521.

The dial

The white indices jump out from the black dial canvas. Adjacent each hour marker are Arabic numerals. The white hour and minute hands are functional, imparting information with clear, unambiguous tone.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
