When Tutima calls the DI 300 “the sports watch for active yachtsmen,” they are apparently willing to put their money where their mouth is. Last year, during the Nord/LB Baltic Spirit Cup, the Tutima racing yacht (appropriately named “TUTIMA”) pulled an orange-dial Tutima DI 300 behind it for 2,000 nautical miles (or about 2,300 regular miles for us landlubbers). I think they made their point that the Tutima DI 300 is water-tight, corrosion-resistant, and has an extremely robust bracelet and clasp.
The specs on the Tutima DI 300 go something like this:
- Titanium case.
- Solid titanium bracelet.
- Screw-down titanium crown.
- Unidirectional rotating bezel.
- Sapphire crystal.
- Automatic movement with day and date.
- Water resistant to 30 bar, 300 meters, or almost 1,000 feet.
- Available with an orange or black dial.
I don’t know much about Tutima watches, however I am suddenly compelled to learn more. Hopefully I’ll be posting a hands-on review in the not-too-distant future.
