I went back and forth over buying this watch for almost a year. I really liked the history and the classic look, and I am a sucker for the particular style of hands on this watch. In addition, I thought the bracelet was quite attractive and robust. Still, I didn't really need yet another chronograph.
Then, just as I was deciding that I was a big fan of handwound watches, my local Tutima pusher called me up, and said that the Tutima representative was coming by that afternoon. I drove over to the shop, and after speaking with him, and looking at some of the movements and the overall quality of construction of their watches, I was sold. This is a brand well worth checking out, even though it doesn't seem to be a TimeZone favourite.
I think I made the fellow's day as I removed my Lange, chucked it into the Tutima box, and proudly strapped on my new chronograph.
Yes. This has become one of my favourite chronographs for daily/work/casual wear. (At first, I thought I'd have preferred getting one of the originals, but they are pretty pricey, and I don't think I'd wear a nice vintage piece nearly as often, being afraid of bunging it up.)
Indeed I would. I'm even considering some of their other classic-styled chronos, for applications where I need more than 30 minutes of timing ability, though if my brain is working, the rotating bezel suffices.
