Image didn't load lol. Its a beautiful blue Tutima on bracelet (ETA 2892 with two complications) and the price is overly reduced, but I have decided not to move on it as it seems to be old stock, and also a bit smaller than I like, and also the numbers invert after the 40 minute marker like the Aqua Terra.

That's a lovely Tuti. Always liked their beads of rice bracelets. They need a comeback.
I miss all the great things that may never be.

And also coin-edge bezels.

Page and Cooper has this watch but I can't figure out what Hanhart's distribution system in the US is.

^What happened andyg :) ?

I found the following Page and Cooper video (posted yesterday) quite informative. I had never seen a watch with flexible lugs like this before.

If I had unlimited funds, either (or both) of :

.. with a sprinkling of these for variety:

Madness takes its toll. Please have exact change.

Love the blue and Tutima are very under rated the build quality is really good. The brand just don't. Seem great at marketing not sure if it's a good or bad thing all I know is I love mine.

I agree its a lovely watch, and the price I was offered was 60% off retail as well. But this watch was released in 2006 so it is very old stock now and I am not ready to service a new watch soon.

Would it need servicing so quickly if it has been at an AD. Guessing it has only been run occasionally ?
Just looking at the prices for servicing
http://www.tutimausa.com/service.shtml
If it only needs a minor service $85 seems ok and the full service is cheaper than Seiko wanted to bill me to fix the seals on my Tuna.

Just saw that the Tutima USA service center is within a half hour drive from me. The picture is from Watchmann who is NOT an AD for Tutima, but obtained a few pieces gray market, I think he only has two Tutimas left (and they've been there a long time). Still, this is more my gf's size than mine at 38.5mm and that wide bezel shrinking the dial even further. The bracelet is the only pull honestly, I don't think I will go for this one. Now I just need to get over the Hanhart as well, and I'll be more focused towards something else..

My old Swiss Army Delta, purchased in 1996, and still going strong, has them.

(Excuse crud and stuff, these are old photos and they shamed me into giving the watch a good clean!).
