    Tutima = Sinn???

    Strange, have been looking at the Tutima and Sinn recently (looking at getting the Sinn 142 D1 space) and the ID for some of the models looked strangely identical.

    For instance, the Tutima Diver looks like the Sinn U1 and U2
    The Tutima military chrono looks like the Sinn 142.

    While I understand some of the movt Like the lemania 5100 are used in both brands, it looks like the same designer design both watches.

    Pls enlighten me.

    Many thanks

    The German brands of Damasko, Sinn, and Tutima do share some of the same design concepts.

    Please explain to an ignorasmus. What is a Troll? I know the Scandinavian version, but not the WUS version.
    Thanks Janne

    Tutima was established in West Germany after WWII, but trace their roots to Glashütte, Saxonia - one of the centers of German watchmaking, located in the former East Germany. The watches they build have been solid enough for the German armed forces to select stainless steel versions of the Military Fliegerchronograph (760 series) for their flying personnel.

    Tutima uses style elements that you will also find in Breitling and, as you mentioned, Sinn watches. The Tutima model range is not very extensive and the only diver watch that springs to mind would be the Tutima Pacific.

    Similar to Sinn, they concentrate on functional designs and similar to Sinn they designed watches around the Lemania 5100 movement. The model designator "Einsatzuhr" does indeed remind me of the Sinn designation "Einsatzzeitmesser" (EZM).

    Tutima appears to be the last manufacturer that has a sufficient supply of Lemania 5100 movements left available and continues manufacturing watches with this movement.

    If you are a Lemania 5100 aficionado and you are looking for a functional watch design, the Military Fliegerchronograph T is worth a closer look.

    You are lucky; trolls are the bane of poor moderators.

    Thanks, Kurt, that explained it all! Good article, I am a little bit wiser now. Or to be more correct, a little bit less stupid!
    Thanks again Janne

    I cannot for the heck of it see how the Tutima case compares with a Sinn 142 which has a rotatable inner bezel, and an external crown to operate that bezel, conventional pushers etc.

    Many thanks Kurt for replying.

    And to Crusader question on the ID, allow me to clarify;

    1) I was comparing the Tutima Military Nato Chronograph T to the Sinn 142.

    2) While I agree the case for certain other Tutima look slightly different, the Tutima Nato bracelet, The dial face and even the pointers for seconds and subpointer looked very much the same

    3) While I understand that both watches share the same movt, I'm intrigue to find that even the hands looked failrly similar.

    Regards
