Tutima Fliegerchronograph, Tutima Military Chronograph, Tutima Grand Flyer At A Glance
Tutima is inextricably linked to aviation and aviation. From the one-time quality assurance for safety, Tutima established a watch brand which, with responsibility and passion, made every flight time experienceable and, above all, measurable.
Two companies were founded in Glashütte in 1927 – Glashütte AG (UFAG) and Glashütte AG (UROFA). Both led Dr. Ernst Kurtz, a lawyer who early recognized that the watch belongs to the future. The best models were given the title “Tutima” – derived from the Latin word “tutus” for “safe”. A watch brand was born. Tutima watches gained a good reputation in terms of durability, user friendliness and precision. The flight chronographs of the 1940s became legendary. After the war, Dr. Kurtz first in Unterfranken, then in the Lower Saxony Ganderkesee the ideals of Glashütter watchmaking. In the 1960s, Dieter Delecate, a former assistant from Tutima, took over the fate of the brand, which remained faithful to the mechanics even in times when the quartz clock gained the upper hand.
Tutima’s Official Pilot’s Chronograph Of The Bundeswehr
The officially developed Fliegerchronograph of the Bundeswehr, reference 798, developed into the specialty. According to 3Rjewelry.com, the watch was also found in the civilian area, and led to the successful reissue of the Fliegerchronograph from the 1940s. The Military Chronograph reference 798, on the other hand, is still the official pilot watch of the German Army and NATO. In the meantime the further developed M2 continues the success story.

Integrated large-area pushers are provided with profiled neoprene inserts. The model variant Pioneer also has a handy rotating bezel with 14 light capsules so that set time intervals can be clearly seen even in the dark.

Grand Flieger is the new edition of the Tutima-Fliegerchronograph from the 1940s, the first German chronograph with “flyback” and “addition time measurement”.

In addition to the Grandflieger Classic in the vintage look, there is also the modern model variant Airport.
