In 1927, Dr. Ernst Kurtz headed a new German watch factory named UROFA-UFAG in Glashutte. The factory was devoted to production of superior quality pocket watches. This describes the beginning of the new brand of watches - TUTIMA. The word Tutima is derived from the Latin word "tutus" which means "safe" or "protected." The watches were built to withstand under any condition, earning the factory an excellent reputation and soaring production. Over 1000 employees worked at the factory before the WWII. One of the highlights of the early Tutima factory was the 1941 Flieger Chronograph watch. Over 30,000 units of the Flieger were produced for the German Air Force. Today, Tutima is headed by a former associate of Dr. Kurtz named Dieter Delecate. In 1986, the company won a NATO contract to supply the pilots of the German Air Force with a unique pilot`s watch model -Military Air Force Chronograph- beating other bigger names like IWC and Breitling during the testing phase.
While in the last few decades Tutima has been operating near Bremen, just a few years ago it returned to its hometown of watchmaking par excellence.
On May 12th, 2011, after three years of preparatory work, Tutima celebrates the official resumption of manufacture operations with a very special masterpiece from its own production. Never before has a timepiece embodying such technical authenticity been created in Glashutte.
