A Closer Look at the Tutima Saxon One M

Tutima Glashutte is usually associated with producing pilot chronographs and they have also made a name for themselves with their Patria collection. Last year, they decided to diversify their collection and surprised everyone with the Saxon One. The German watchmakers have now upgraded this timepiece further and chose the Baselworld 2018 event to launch this new sports watch.

As this collection was only launched at the Baselworld 2017, it is still young. The first model was rather robust and appeared large on the wrist, with 42 and 43 mm versions available. The inaugural models they introduced were powered by either an automatic day-date caliber of an automatic chronograph movement. Their barrel-shaped cases meant that they felt even larger.

The Saxon One M 40 mm is the latest piece that the brand has added to their collection as they have realized that not everyone wants such a large watch. Other than the size of the watch, it is basically the same as its 2017 predecessors, so you can expect the same attractively designed case if you choose to purchase this watch.

The Saxon One M 40 mm has a barrel-shaped case that features sharp angles and straight line. As it is inspired by the luxury sports watch genre of watches, it has integrated lugs to which the watch strap is attached directly. The lug modules are brushed lugs are a contrast to the polished case. The strap that comes as standard is brown leather and this gives the watch a rather formal appearance. The other alternative is to opt for the steel bracelet strap which is also available, and this is less formal.

The round bezel of this watch has a fluted profile which is similar to those on Flieger watches. This round bezel gives the watch a sportier feel than some of its other features. The case has well-finished surfaces and a solid assembly, while the water-resistance and ease of use are assured because of the oversized screw-down crown.

As the Saxon One M 40 mm has a smaller case than previous models, it is more comfortable to wear and can be described as offering greater versatility. Although the case is quite large, it is still thin enough to fit sleekly beneath a formal shirt. There are two further updates that have been made to this watch in addition to the decrease in size; the dial and the time-and-date movement.

In terms of the dial, it is now a classy shade of gray. The dials on the previous versions were available in blue, black, or silver. The new dial has polished hands and markers on a watch face that is simplistic, uncluttered, and easy to read. In addition to the markers, the minutes are written in Arabic numerals in five-minute intervals around the edge of the dial.

Other than the hands and markers, there is very little to distract you on the dial. This gives it a sophisticated look that is equally suited to both formal and informal attire. All-in-all, the appearance of the dial is ideal for those who are not interested in all the additional features and gadgets that are available from some of its competitors.

In relation to the time-and-date movement, this replaces the day-day movement used for the 3-hand version of the Tutima Saxon One. This upgrade makes the dial feel more adapted to the smaller dial and gives it a cleaner look. A caliber Tutima 300, which is a modified ETA movement, is visible through the case back. This features a specific rotor with a seal made from 18k gold. This watch has 25 jewels, a 4 Hz. Frequency, and a 38-hour power reserve. These specifications are fairly standard, but this means it is an easy-to-use and reliable movement.

Overall, the sleeker design of this new and improved watch is much better than previous versions of the Saxon One. It fits most wrists and is suitable for all occasions. It is the ideal choice for those who are not interested in paying a premium for a wide range of features they will never use. Opting for the steel bracelet instead of the leather watch strap will cost you a little more but regardless of which you choose, the cost of this watch is worth it for the quality of the timepiece you are purchasing.
