For more than 70 years, Tutima has been producing professional chronographs. Their timepieces have earned the trust of NATO pilots. For 2009, Tutima introduces the the Grand Classic sports watch and chronograph. These watches are produced using special hardened steel. Unlike conventional hardening processes, Tutima uses a unique method which takes several days to complete and that allows the hardening process to penetrate deep into the core of the metal. This allows the metal to achieve its maximum strength and renders it virtually corrosion-proof and highly scratch resistant.
In addition, Tutima applies to the new cases and steel bracelets a chip-proof black PVD (physical vapor deposition) coating, which is nearly as hard as ceramic. The use of PVD results in an even more durable product and an attractive and new look for the brand. The new Grand Classic models also feature unique dials inspired by vintage 1930’s Tutima sports watches from Glashütte.
