What is the setup with the Tutima day wheel-I have a German language version and would like to have english. Is the wheel reversible or is a new one required? Is fitting easy and acheivable at a jewllers or is a trip to Tutima required?
Thanks in advance.

If the day wheel is black lettering on white, day wheels are available from places like Jules Borel and Otto Frei, etc etc. They are not reversible. If it is anything other than black on white, finding a replacement will be harder.

In order to change the wheel, the hands and dial must be removed, so unless you are very comfortable with digging around in watch movements, a trip to the watch-doctor is in order. It is a simple thing to do if you know what your doing.

As stated, there is no "conversion" you can do on your own day-wheel, so a new one must be found.
The movement is a Lemania 5100, so your best bet is to try and find an alternative supplier. Your only problem then is getting round some of the spares policies that manufacturers have. Some will gladly sell spares, some will not, on the basis that they require to do the repairs themselves, and therefore won't sell to outside agencies or individuals.
It is correct that the black on white is more readily available, as this was used by Omega (the 1045 movement). White on black, which is normal for Tutima, is rarer.
Well, first off, try Tutima, they may have stock.
Sinn certainly will have stock.
Fortis may be another option.
Good luck
