The new Senator Cosmopolite is the watch for modern globetrotters
Many travelers consider moving from one time zone into another a part of everyday life, whether traveling for business or leisure. The Senator Cosmopolite is designed to meet the complex demands of today’s world travelers. First introduced in 2015 in red and white gold versions, the cosmopolitan masterpiece from Glashütte Original is available from 2018 in an elegant stainless steel version as well. With its innovative time zone mechanism, which displays the time of day or night at home and destination in each of the 35 world time zones currently in use, the Saxon manufactory wraps all the time in the world around the globetrotter’s wrist. This exceptional timepiece is available immediately from all Glashütte Original Boutiques and from selected dealers.
Featuring minimalistic design and a sophisticated time zone mechanism, the latest version of the Senator Cosmopolite from Glashütte Original proves the ideal companion for contemporary cosmopolitans and world explorers. Just in time for the start of the travel season, the timepiece, presented to great acclaim this last spring, is now available worldwide.
Essential design for contemporary world travelers
The most recent interpretation of the timepiece introduced in 2015 is presented in a contemporary design language that is understood all over the world. Clear and reduced to essentials, it corresponds to the characteristic style of Glashütte Original, and ensures that its wearer makes an elegant appearance – no matter where his next journey takes him.
Dark blue poire hands glide along their paths over the matte white dial with nonchalant ease – passing, among other things, new blue Arabic numerals and indexes. Black details offer striking accents in the various displays – the Glashütte Original Panorama Date, for example, the power reserve display, or the stylised starry night sky of the day/night display at 9 o’clock. Two slender windows are positioned harmoniously in the curve of the dial at 8 o’clock; they indicate the destination, using the IATA codes in one of three colours, taking Daylight Saving and Standard Time into account. The bright silver threads circumscribing the two auxiliary dials, too, combine understatement with incisiveness, nicely complementing the alternately satin-brushed and highly polished 44 mm stainless steel case, itself enhanced by a dark blue Louisiana alligator leather strap with pin buckle or foldover clasp.
Path breaking mechanics
Just as its contemporary form makes reading the timepiece a pleasure at any destination, the superb construction of its movement proves convincing on all continents. Thanks to the sophisticated 89-02 manufactory movement, the Senator Cosmopolite displays the time of day in two time zones at once, without the wearer having to make any calculations himself. A time zone ring offers a choice among all 35 world time zones currently in use, each represented by the official IATA code for an international airport located in the relevant time zone.
Impressively complex – and yet a perfect example of intuitive operation: the 89-02 movement transforms its spectacular mechanics into fascinating ease of use. Supplied with energy from an off-centre rotor, it has a power reserve of at least 72 hours and provides high operational stability by means of a regulator–free regulation system with swan-neck spring. Last, but not least, the sapphire crystal case back offers an excellent view of the superb decorative finishings and characteristic details of the fine art of German watchmaking, including Glashütte stripe finish, blued screws and the precious handengraving and bi-colour galvanisation of the balance cock.
