The Endurance of Tradition
Tutima was founded by Dr. Ernst Kurtz in 1927, and it has been producing watches ever since. It was the result of the unification of two watch companies in Glashütte, Germany, the city of timepieces. The name Tutima is derived from the Latin term tutum, which translates to “safe” or “secure” in English. This was the concept that drove Tutima: the brand was dedicated to producing timepieces that were durable and reliable, ideas that seemed far out of reach in the tumultuous political climate of the years following Tutima’s creation.
