We visited Tutima in late August, 2020, while observing social distancing guidelines. Jörg Delecate, COO of Tutima, proudly presented a new addition to their M2 Coastline line up, the Tutima M2 Coastline chronographs, reference 6430-05 and 6430-02, 6430-06.
We were told that Tutima Glashütte is going to expand the sporty, robust series with new chronographs.
The new models are a perfect evolution of their legendary predecessor, the Tutima NATO Chronograph. The large pushers on the chronograph are ergonomically integrated into the rounded, 20 atm pressure-tested case.
As is typical for M2 series, it is made of satin-finished, ultra-light and hard-wearing pure titanium with a screwed base adorned with a raised compass rose. The black PVD-coated inlays of the titanium handle with a non-slip surface guarantee a secure grip in all positions.
The two-component strap is made of waterproof rubber, which is provided on the outside with robust Cordura fabric, alternatively with a leather insert that is color-coordinated with a matte blue leaf, harmonizes perfectly.
The dials continue the M2 philosophy of reduction to the essentials: All elements are clearly arranged and designed in a straight line, from the totalizers for the stop mechanism to Super-LumiNova coated hands and indexes.
The anti-reflective sapphire crystal minimizes light reflections.
The youngest member of the Tutima M2 family is powered by the automatic caliber Tutima 310 with a 48-hour power reserve, date display, hour, minute and small seconds. The chronograph shows 60 seconds, 30 minutes and 12 hours, with the seconds counter working clearly from the center.
Available on a titanium bracelet for €3,100, or alternatively with a strap made of either leather, rubber and lleather, or rubber with Cordura for €2,900.
