Watch for Sale: From first owner - Tutima Pacific Automatic 100 m stainless 1994
SOLD OUT! No more stock, sorry

Why I think this watch is interesting:
With the classic functional German design! Ferdinand Porsche used similar hands on his IWC models! The bezel rotates very smooth! The newer 200 m water resistant model has an improvement, a black day and date. But I like the 12 o'clock index of this older 100 m water resistant model a lot better, the classic triangle.

Watchbox and Papers
: I am not sure whether this was the original box, but it looks like the Porsche Design boxes that IWC issued. It is probably a generic German watch box. The watch comes with the original warranty issued in 1994 from the first owner!

There is some discoloration of the lume on the hour hand. Yet as you can also see from the dial shot below, the discolorations almost have a spot like pattern and therefore in my opinion, you will not need to relume the hands. Also what is most surprising, this 12 year old Tutima has an excellent luminosity. I have no idea what kind of luminous material is used, but it is very very bright. There is also some "shrinkage" of the luminous material on the hour indices. Again check the dial shot for close-up views. But also the hour indices luminosity is brilliant and consistent with the hour hands.

The nick at 2:30 on the case inside the turning bezel is the only defect noticeable from the front without magnification

The watch looks unopened, there are no tool marks from opening the case. There are almost no scratches on the back. The darker areas on the back shots show some discolorations. Something that you could probably remove using Brasso or Polywatch or a similar Aluminum oxide polishing paste. There are a couple of marks from changing the bracelet, the watch was last worn on a black leather strap which looked great too.

The bracelet is in good condition, yet, there are some marks on the removable links as it seems the previous owner had resized it a couple of times.

No idea what that "watch genious" tried to do at the Diver's extension, there are some tool marks at the right most end is if someone had tried to use a small hammer on it.

Box and papers and watch

The 40 mm watch looks great on my 6.5 inch wrist and would equally look great on larger wrists up to ca. 7.5 inch
