Grand Flieger Airport Chronograph, Blue Dial
Available on backorder
In no other timepiece of Tutima's current collection is there so much pilot DNA as in the Grand Flieger, which directly descends from the legendary Tutima pilot’s chronograph of 1941. The watch, outfitted with caliber UROFA 59, was the first German chronograph to boast addition timing and “Tempostopp,” which we would call the flyback function today. This is a watch that set the standard in both aesthetics and function, and can well be viewed as a milestone of watch history.
At first glance, almost nothing has changed in 75 years: the characteristic design language of the round stainless steel case with rotating bezel and reference marker, the reserved typography of the matte black dial paired with contemporary luminous hands as well as the haptic quality of the leather strap exude the scent of history. However, the Grand Flieger with its diameter of 43 mm is much larger in dimension than the original and is, of course, outfitted with a modern automatic movement, which can be viewed through the generous transparent case back.
Like our three-handed variation, it is finished according to the rules of the Glashutte art of watchmaking and outfitted with a rotor decorated with our gold Tutima seal. Alongside the Grand Flieger Classic in the typical vintage look that includes a fluted bezel, a model variation called Grand Flieger Airport with a smooth rotating bezel and 60-minute divisions is also available. The crown remains of the screw-in variety, and all timepieces in the Grand Flieger line are water-resistant to 20 atm.
