Tutima Seven Seas Welcomes New 40mm MariTimer Series

Tutima’s dive watch catalog gets a little bigger with the introduction of the new MariTimer series, a watch that will live within their M2 Seven Seas S collection. The MariTimer addresses one of the biggest concerns about the new models released last year, and that is their 44mm diameter. The MariTimer keeps plenty of the same personality and functionality, now packaged inside a nifty 40mm case. The larger models aren’t going anywhere, so this really represents another welcome option within the M2 range, which has pretty much skewed on the larger side exclusively, until now. 

The core MariTimer series gets 4 dial colors, and while none are quite as loud as the yellows and oranges seen elsewhere in the collection, they do feature a lovely dégradé that fades from light to dark at the dial’s perimeter. Unless you opt for the black dial, of course, which sits alongside the red, green, and blue options. A fifth reference also appears in the series, which does get a yellow dégradé dial within a black pvd case.


The 40mm steel case of the MariTime watches follows a similar design to the broader M2 collection, and can be had fitted to a leather/rubber hybrid strap, or an H-link bracelet that tucks right up to the case, appearing almost integrated thanks to the hooded lug section. The bezel design has been slightly reworked to fit the trimmer case, but this is an unmistakable design at its core, and if you’re a fan of the look but prefer smaller cases, this might be a good entry point to the brand. 

The M2 collection of watches have never been shy about their hard core bona fides and the MariTimer is no different, offering an impressive 500 meter depth rating. The case measures 12.5mm in thickness, and houses their Sellita based caliber 330 inside, setting the date aperture neatly at 6 o’clock. 

We are, frankly, spoiled for choice when it comes to dive watches these days, and where many follow a familiar formula, the Tutima design language continues to stand on its own as a somewhat unique outlier. The smaller MariTimer does cede some of the more robust design features, such as the bezel assembly, but it retains enough of the DNA to be an attractive option for those looking outside of the mainstream options. 

The Tutima M2 Seven Seas S MariTimer series is priced from $1,980 on the strap, and raises to $2,350 on the steel bracelet. The watches are available now from Tutima retailers. Tutima.
