    Brothers from diffrent mothers, PRS 17c & Tutima 768

    Brothers from diffrent mothers. The same idea but slightly diffrent execution. Precista PRS 17c vs Tutima Field Chronograph ref. 768-01. I like them both, canít decide which one to keep, then both will stay with me. If I would compare them together then Tutima has definitely better quality of bezel. It is easier to turn and has more solid feel, it has very nice click, sounds more like Submariner bezel. Looking at the case, then better looking, qualitywise, is Precista. It is slightly better finished. Another thing is that Tutima has screw-in bars, like old Panerai uses, where Precista uses a spring bars. The crowns use the same way of internal threaded tube, but Tutima has more refined crown in shape. The dial for me is better in Tutima, because of adding small hash marks on hour 2, 6, and 10 what I really miss on Precista when chrono minute is running. The hands are better eye catching on Tutima. The orange colour is very bright and more like safety vest orange. I must addmit that I love this Tutima orange, it is not so plane like yellow on Precista. The chrono hands are more popping to the front in Tutima leaving hour and minute hand in back ground, whereas in Precista the hour and minute are legible in the first place. The luminova is better on Tutima, longer lasting. Both use the same movement eta 251.262 and are 100m WR.

    Very interesting, thanks. I particularly like the date placement of the Tutima.... I don't think I've seen it done that way before... replacing the 4th indice.

    Me too. Precista would look better if exactly between 4 and 5.

    The later 17Cs with the white on black date look better than the earlier ones (IMHO). Love the orange on the Tutima though.

    I agree the placement on the Tutima is great looking.

    I have both watches too and agree that the Tutima looks and feels slightly better than the Precista. The bezel inserts are slightly different too, but both great watches.

    Excellent! I must confess that I have the same trio.

    The 12 hour bezel and black date disc look great. Can we presume that the Sinn 815 is the rarest of the variations in this case?
