Tutima preserves old Glashütte traditions while founding its own with the new watch model family Patria. The first model takes its visuals from the strictly limited minute repeater that was completely fabricated in Glashütte. Its manually wound Caliber 617, developed and produced in the manufacture, is derived from the complicated movement of the celebrated Hommage.

The sapphire crystal case back of the Patria allows the observer an unimpeded view of the fine, gold-plated movement with its striking three-quarter plate, a component typical of nineteenth-century Glashütte pocket watches. Its large surface is decorated with an even ribbing, which allows the three screw-mounted gold chatons containing ruby jewels to visually come forward in a prominent way. The two steel winding wheels are decorated with a Glashütte sunburst pattern and dispose of a special click containing steel springs that have been high-polished on a tin plate. All screw heads are also polished according to Glashütte tradition (not blued) and even have a sharp bevel within the slit and around the diameter.
The balance armed with 14 gold weighted screws and four regulating screws oscillates at a frequency of 21,600 vph (semi-oscillations per hour). The filigreed steel pallet lever has been tediously finished by hand.
At first glance, the dial of this watch reveals nothing of its inner values. Reserved and elegant, it displays hours and minutes as well as subsidiary seconds in an unusually large, off-center scaled subdial at 6 o’clock. Those taking a closer look might find a clue as to the exquisite technology of the movement in the handcrafted hands, lovingly worked down to the smallest detail.
The 18-carat rose gold case continues the timeless style of the Hommage Minute Repeater. This model is secured to the wrist by a hand-sewn alligator-skin strap with a gold pin buckle.
