Tutima a Glashütte watch brand, and shoe designer George Esquivel have announced their exciting travel collaboration, the Compass collection.
Since 1927, Tutima has been known for their opulent mechanical watches that are timeless pieces built with design in mind. George Esquivel shares Tutima’s passion for finding this perfect balance of beauty and longevity with his motto being 'craft not hype'.
“It was important we create a collection that perfectly represents the value of fine craftsmanship instilled in both Tutima and Esquivel and we found the same dedicated effort and attention to detail in his journey of creation as we have at Tutima,” said Gustavo Calzadilla, president and CEO of Tutima USA.
Evidently, the theme of this unexpected collaboration is travel— a common thread that ties the two brands together. The Compass collection includes hand-crafted pieces that are the perfect addition to any adventure. The limited-edition 25-piece collection will feature the Tutuima Partial Dual Time with NATO straps, a watch holder that Esquivel designed, Esquivel’s iconic Chelsea boots and a duffle bag. All the pieces are made from durable natural leather will be the perfect accessories for any traveler's look.
“I love to travel and meet new people, go to new places, and often travel for work and pleasure. As a seasoned traveler, it was a great experience to use everything I’ve learned to design a collection of essential travel pieces with Tutima that speaks to our sense of adventure,” explained Esquivel.
These travel pieces will be sold as a set for $16,900 and will be co-branded with both of the brands' logos. If you can get your hands on one of the sets, you will not be disappointed. Every travel essential in the set is a work of art made with extreme passion and attention to detail.
Among the most captivating parts of the collection is the Tutima Partial Dual Time. Besides the watch's ability to keep track of multiple times from across the world, the transparent crystal back a top-tier example of excellent craftmanship. The transparency allows wearers to gaze into the intricate mechanics of their watch. Everything from the collection was created with a similar goal in mind, providing a traveler with an easy, stylized journey.
