Where the exceptional is tradition – and tradition is exceptional. The words that the team at Tutima live by. Glashütte, a world-famous city of timepieces since the nineteenth century. In 1927, two companies were founded: Uhren-Rohwerke-Fabrik Glashütte AG (UROFA) and Uhrenfabrik Glashütte AG, known as UFAG.
The Chairman and Managing Director of both was Dr. Ernst Kurtz. A jurist who quickly recognised that it was not the still widely used pocket watch to which the future would belong, but, instead, the wristwatch. Very soon, his best models had no need to shun comparison to Swiss brands. Because they were especially reliable and durable, they received the name “Tutima”. Derived from the Latin word for “safe, secure.” A new brand was born.
