And the Tutima on his wrist turned out to be a reminder of why watches are such fascinating things — and not only for technical reasons. Its average deviation was somewhat higher +3 seconds per day without the chronograph running and +2. The watch was accurate for my purposes, losing only about 45 seconds in total during my week on Bora Bora and putting it well within the official chronometer specs of the C. The Alpina has a steel bracelet with a clasp operated by push-buttons. But sometimes, the reminders of that unconditional love turn up in the most unexpected places. The Tutima caliber 521 automatic movement is currently used in a few watches produced by Tutima today.

Then the brand bead-blasted the titanium so it would be less prone to scratching which I proved. One thing that bothered me about the three-hand Tutima M2 Coastline is the short hour hand, which thankfully does not carry over to the Chronograph. In addition, the curvaceous slopes and lines of the tonneau case perform a bit of optical trickery, resulting in a watch that I would say wears more like a 40-41mm watch. But the buyer gets an exclusive, practical chronograph display with an easy-to-read, center-mounted minutes counter. The sapphire crystal features anti-reflective coating on its inner surface, once again, heightening readability. I first learned of Tutima watches when I came across the Tutima Pacific 670 — a long-discontinued, svelte, 40mm diver with hidden lugs produced for a short time around 2010.

Tutima M2 Watch Review

The overall effect is a Goldilocks feel that is comfortable for all-day wear, but still feels reassuringly solid. Few would bring their five-figure Rolexes or elegant Patek Philippes along for paddle boarding, kayaking, diving, or kite surfing. The watch wears smaller than its dimensions suggest in large part because of the hidden lugs that result in a super-short ~44mm lug-to-lug distance, avoiding any issues of lug overhang. Sweet watch: The M2 Seven Seas — ready to use with every function and fibre! The emerald glow of Super-LumiNova all over the hands and five-minute dot markers on the bezel are perfectly visible at night or in whatever dark places your lifestyle finds you. The Tutima M2 Coastline is one of them. Always liked the design of this series, but 46+mm is just too large for me to consider wearing on a regular basis. This timepiece is water resistant to 30 bar 300 metres.

Tutima currently focuses on in-house chronograph movements though some models still uses sources ones as well as the more traditional-looking in-house movements in their Patria collection watches. Alpina also takes a different tack with its clutch which engages the movement with the timing mechanism when the chronograph is activated. A vibrant red central seconds hand circumscribes the dial with lucid aplomb. The Alpina showed similar results. And that is exactly what is so fascinating about the mind-boggling achievements of watches. But hop out into bright light and the dial pops.

Angus regularly writes reviews on timepieces which pique his interest, whilst Heidi edits all of his work. The solid titanium bracelet includes a folding clasp and exhibits an impressive hewn from granite solidity. The Alpiner 4 Flyback Chronograph Manufacture from Alpina was designed as a watch for adventurers, mountain climbers and winter-sports fans. At least, not in a direct way. In contrast, the luminescent hour and minute hands are bold and broad.

The austere looking timepiece measures 12. Designed as a robust timepiece for fans of yachting, the watch also makes much sense for land-based wearers. The strap and bracelet are interchangeable with the tool provided. With this small issue behind me and the watch now precisely set, I made sure not to crank the crown down any more than finger tight. I do like a sand or bead blast finish, but in this case is makes the Ti look a little cheap.

Built to resist Coming back to the first paragraph of this article, the 74. I think a simple, well-textured metal might be a better choice. While it is a rabbit hole to jump into feature-based competition, the Coastline still lacks a distinctive story — it is a nice product, but it lacks a certain x-factor to it or at least it is not conveyed. The timing machine recorded an average daily deviation of +1. I am told by another Tutima owner that such stiffness is an anomaly. The Kevlar strap adds a bit more bulk to the watch than I imagine the bracelet would.

Not a make-or-break issue, but worth noting. In terms of ease of use, the Alpina has a jump on the Tutima. Tutima remains a family-owned and -operated business to this day. The black matte finish has a velvet appearance, making it the perfect backdrop for the white markers and hands all seven of them on the brightest of sunny days. Tutima chose to craft the M2 Coastline from titanium, a decision I completely agree with. It gives us a frame of reference.
