It is. By coincidence, though, rather than knowing WTF I was doing. Thx.

This is my TUTIMA Military NATO Chronograph 798-01
in Stainless Steel. It is not produced in SS anymore. Titanium only, today.

Tutima is one of the few that still use the discontinued Lemania 5100, because is the only calibre that still meets their military requirements. The 5100, due to its construction, is the only chronograph movement that can withstand large shocks without its chronograph seconds hand stopping. This is because its chronograph mechanism is driven directly unlike most other chronographs which use an intermediate wheel. The calibre easily withstands acceleration in excess of 7G without appreciable loss of accuracy. Its ruggedness is legendary; the calibre easily absorbs shocks and blows.





SOLID AS A ROCK. This watch is pure understatement. That's why I like it so much.

Swiss Army hunter Mach 3. One tough watch! Have had mine for a few years now and not a scratch. Love the way the digital backround lights up when needed by pressing crown.

Nice watch - the downside is that it's impossible to fit another strap to it.
