Tutima adds two more models to its amazing collection of M2 Seven Seas S adventure watches, and both are eye-catching with their steel cases and two interesting green or gold-shifting dials.
Newer than this of M2 Seven Seas the collection adds an S to its name to denote the use of a brushed and partially polished 43mm stainless steel case instead of a titanium case.
While previous steel models offered red or blue dials, the latest M2 Seven Seas S offers yellow or green dials, but with a twist. In the center, each option dial invites the viewer to enjoy the color’s fading until it turns the darkest along its periphery.
The new M2 Seven Seas S from Tutima Glashu¨tte.
Glashütte-based Tutima then continues the gradient effect using a leather strap, which matches the green on the dials of both new models.
Of course, Tutima also offers a steel bracelet, with a very reasonable premium price of $400, for those who prefer a more traditional approach.
The watch retains all of the collection’s sea-ready specifications, including the crown, the threaded caseback, and importantly, an extra-thick (three mm) sapphire crystal that protects the dial. The unidirectional rotating bezel with the “12” marker is both functional and eye-catching.
The hands and markers here are wide and exceptionally easy to read. Tutima enhances that visibility by placing a generous layer of SuperLuminova over the markers, hands, and dots at the top of the dial.
Tutima’s use of both a screw back and an extra thick layer of crystal contributes to the very strong 500-meter water resistance rating for the M2 Seven Seas series. Inside the M2 Seven Seas, S Tutima houses the ETA-based automatic Caliber 330 which has a standard power reserve of 38 hours when fully wound.
Price: $1,900 (leather strap) and $2,300 (steel strap).
