German watch brand Tutima Glashütte is all about creating watches that perform important functions that their owners need or want, such as flying or diving. The brand has a long history in these realms and is known around the world for their aviation watches and their dive watches. Now, the brand releases the new MariTimer M2 Seven Seas S in 40mm versions, so they are more wearable by everyone.
It was earlier this year that the first M2 Seven Seas S watches made their debut – in 43mm sizes with multiple dial color options. The new 40mm pieces – currently offered with either a blue gradient dial or a red gradient dial – follow the same codes of watchmaking, design and precision as their larger siblings.
From an aesthetic perspective, the new watches boast richly colored dials whose color starts bright in the center and graduates darker as it reaches the edge of the dial. This offers great depth and dimension to the dive watches. The three hands and the markers are luminescent, and the outer edge of the dial showcases not just the five-minute markers, but also features stick indications for every minute.
The stainless steel case, with integrated lugs, boasts a brushed stainless steel bracelet. The red model can also be purchased with a two-part strap made of leather and rubber with color-coordinated stitching to match the dial. The bezel is particularly clean and offers a true harmonious appeal, as it is also crafted in stainless steel, polished, and fitted with the luminescent dot at 12:00 for easy underwater orientation. It can only be rotated counterclockwise for safety purposes when diving. The case back features an engraving of a ship on the seas.
Proving its ability to withstand the elements, the watch is water resistant to 50 ATM thanks to a threaded crown and screwed case back. The new MariTimer M2 Seven Seas S is powered by the same movement as the other S watches: Tutima’s self-winding caliber 330 with 38 hours of power reserve. The watch retails for $1,980 on strap and $2,350 on bracelet.
It should be noted that in July, Tutima unveiled the black PVD M2 Seven Seas watch for that collection, so our guess is a black PVD version of the M2 Seven Seas S watch will be forthcoming soon (maybe with a green or yellow dial).
