Saxon Sporting Spirit

The Saxon One ZSM sports chronograph from Tutima Glashütte – limited edition in Racing Yellow

Pole position on the wrist! With this new addition to the successful Saxon One watch family, Tutima Glashütte presents a chronograph that embodies pure performance, self-confident sportiness and maximum precision. The letters “ZSM” in the model’s name stand for “Zentrale Stoppminute”, i.e. sweep minutes counter.

Limited to 100 timepieces, this model attracts maximum attention at first glance thanks to its dynamic colour combination of yellow and black. The stainless steel case has been pressure-tested to 20 atmospheres and boasts an iconic shape with sharply defined edges that handsomely reflect the light and accentuate this watch’s bold appearance. The chronograph’s push-buttons blend harmoniously into the case, while lateral flanks provide additional protection for the screw-down crown.

As a particularly striking and rare complication, the elapsed minutes are counted from the dial’s centre. This highly functional and extremely practical special feature was developed and fabricated on the premises at Tutima’s manufactory in Glashütte. Central positioning on the spacious main dial assures that the elapsed minutes can be read quickly and accurately. The first quarter of the minute track, which indicates the first fifteen minutes and is important for many elapsed-time measurements, is additionally highlighted in bright yellow.

In characteristic Saxon One style, the uncompromisingly sporty look of this model is further affirmed by its nonslip rotatable bezel, which has a red marker and a luminous dot at the “12”. The sportiness continues on the comfortable and water-repellent strap, which is made of lightweight but durable rubber.

Reliable protection is provided by antireflective and scratch-resistant sapphire crystals above the dial and in the case’s screw-down back. The latter offers a clear view of Tutima’s shock-resistant Caliber 521 chronograph movement: the caliber automatically winds itself with every motion of its rotor, which is embellished with Tutima’s gold seal.

The Saxon One ZSM sports chronograph in Racing Yellow is now available in a limited edition of 100 pieces.
