Review: Tutima Tempostopp. The other German chronograph

Postby Racer-X » July 7th 2018, 1:35pm

"Tutima is one of the important players in the German horological landscape. Situated in Glashütte, it is relatively lesser known to collectors than the neighbours A. Lange & Söhne, Glashütte Original or Nomos. But Tutima have a significant historical importance, and in the modern era, the brand is one of the watch suppliers for the German Air Force. Last year, Tutima celebrated its 90th years anniversary. At this major milestone, the German watchmaker launched a special timepiece – the Tempostopp. The flyback chronograph windrows its origins from the 1939’s UROFA 59 movement."

That one's nice. It gives me a big Teutonic boner.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

I like crown guards...on a diver.

WTF are they thinking?

Probably something about making the case look like that of the Patek ref. 5130, only the 5130 was never good-looking in the first place. More, like, 1990s kind of crass.

The dial is a joy, the hands would be better if all were blued.
Steel case would be better than gold, and, of course, the shoulders are a no-go.
Shame.
