    Saw one of these somewhere else before, and an explanation for what or who the GIPN might be, but darned if I can remember where. Some sort of special forces dudes, no doubt.
    I like it though.

    When I made the Speedmaster PVD versions I was going to make a Tutima Military version but the prices seemed to have gone through the roof....


    Sorry, forgot to add this...

    Presumably some kind of special edition made for Groupes d'Intervention de la Police Nationale, stuff on wikipedia here. No picture of their badge on the wikipedia page, but from a pic elsewhere it looks like it matches the one on the subdial:


    (Pic lifted from the web.)

    Seems to be the French National Police SWAT teams.

    Not sure where you found this one Al, but I posted about this very watch in the old forums a while back, here

    http://www.atgvintagewatches.com/For...9/Default.aspx

    I had found it in a French Auction results catalogue, sold for about 7-800 in 2008.

    I lnew you had always harboured a secret desire to PVD a Tutima, so thought a link to one already done was an interesting one (even if the oiginal post got no replies whatsoever!)

    If it's Lemania-powered, I'm interested. Tool Chrono - interested. Dive Chrono - interested. Interesting - interested

    According to this Artcurial listing, this watch was a one-off prototype. An order for 200 watches that was supposed to follow never materialized.

    Not too fond of it myself, to be honest...
