Default Tutima Mil Chrono

Just switched out the stock bracelet and installed this leather. Tutima is a small German company and in 1985 won the NATO contract for its jet fighters. Mine is the civilian version, not the BUND edition. It has the Lemania 5100 inside. The pushers were unique in design, meant for easier usage by a gloved hand. The large center minute hand, instead of being a subdial, was an outstanding feature of the Lemania 5100, more of a solid workhorse movement rather than a deluxe designed one. It has been criticized for some plastic parts.

Default Much like the Omega cal 1045 mark series

aside from the plastic, can be a complicated movement and definitely a keeper in your collection. I prefer the bracelet, kind of big on the wrist but still very appealing to the eye.

Yeah, it looks bulky but actually wears nicely with the strap. The Seiko MM is also tall and heavy as is the Marathon JSAR at 46mm wide. The dial is quite legible. The watch was overhauled here in Japan in 2013. The stock older bracelet was tapering 20/18.
I bought the watch for its military background, though mine was not the BUND version.
