The Senator Cosmopolite from Glashütte Original is an exceptional timepiece dedicated to contemporary globetrotters. The new version of this successful model from the Saxon watchmaker features an exceptionally high-contrast dial in striking midnight blue.
Dial visibility is an absolute necessary for a perfect and reliable traveler’s watch. Manufactured in-house by Glashütte Original at their dial manufactory in Pforzheim, the dial of Senator Cosmopolite watch ensures optimal legibility for the wearer, anywhere in the world and under all lighting conditions.
Even by daylight, the new, sword-shaped hour and minute hands are clearly set off from the galvanic, midnight blue dial with its sunray finish. Equally easy to read are the numerals, details and lettering printed in white on the different displays.
The twelve characteristic rod index appliqués complete the high contrast design. The central hands and the hour appliqués are inlaid with white Super-LumiNova for ensuring the dial visibility during low light conditions.
The manufactory’s automatic Calibre 89-02 movement with 72-hour power reserve makes it possible to display the time of day in two time zones at once, freeing the wearer from the need to calculate the time difference.
A time zone ring offers a choice of all 35 world time zones currently in use, each of them displayed using an official IATA location code representing an international airport in the relevant time zone.
The 24 time zones that are offset from Greenwich Mean Time by a full hour are represented by an IATA code in white. Further eight time zones with half-hour offsets and the three time zones with three-quarter hour offsets are indicated by an IATA code in light blue.
The two windows at 8 o’clock allow the wearer to set summer time (Daylight Saving Time – DST) and standard time (Standard Time – STD), and day/night indicators for both home and destination (local time) can be read at a glance. Any necessary adjustments of the date while traveling forward or back in time, i.e. to the east or west respectively, are handled by the movement’s intricate mechanics.
On the new blue dial, too, the central hour and minute hands indicate the local time, while the home time is displayed on the auxiliary dial at 12 o’clock. The helpful day/night indicator and integrated power reserve display can also be found here.
The small second at 6 o’clock, the day/night indicator for the local time at 9 o’clock and the signature Glashütte Original Panorama Date at 4 o’clock complete the well thought-out design of the Senator Cosmopolite.
Elegance, in its most essential form in the style of Glashütte Original, cuts a fine figure with the new form of the hands and appliques against the blue background. The dial is framed by an alternately polished/ satin-brushed, 44-millimetre stainless steel case.
The watch is available with a blue Louisiana alligator leather strap with pin buckle or fold fastener or a stainless steel bracelet with an 8-step fine adjustment mechanism.
