German watch brand Tutima Glashütte presents a new version of Patria in an elegant rose gold case with a deep blue dial and an exquisite manufacture calibre.
Measuring 43mm diameter, the 18-karat rose gold case is topped with a domed anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The golden hands and indices contrast harmoniously against the dial’s blue background. The surfaces of the in-house manufactured 18-karat gold hands are polished by hand; the bevel is meticulously ground and given a matte finish. The deep-blue dial also has a small seconds dial at 6’o clock.
Inside the Patria beats the Tutima Calibre 617 manufacture movement. Visible through the sapphire crystal case-back of the case, this masterfully crafted hand-wound mechanical caliber boasts the characteristic Glashütte three quarter plate with three ruby bearings set in screwed gold chatons.
Also typical of Glashütte watchmaking is the sunburst finish that adorns the Patria’s winding wheels, which have a special ratchet with steel springs polished by hand on a tin plate. In keeping with Tutima’s tradition, the heads of all screws are polished and not blued.
The balance oscillates at a frequency of 21,600 semi-oscillations per hour and is fitted with a Breguet hairspring, the end curve of which is manually bent in Tutima’s workshops according to special calculations.
A blue alligator leather strap with a gold pin buckle continues the blue-and-gold colour scheme beyond the luxurious case.
