Introduced in 2015, this watch for globetrotters, which indicates local and destination time in each of the 35 world time zones currently in use, is now available in a steel version.

Featuring minimalistic design and a sophisticated time zone mechanism, the latest version of the Senator Cosmopolite from Glashütte Original proves the ideal companion for world explorers. The most recent interpretation of the timepiece introduced in 2015 is presented in a contemporary design language that is understood all over the world. Dark blue poire hands glide along their paths over the matte white dial passing, among other things, new blue Arabic numerals and indexes. Black details offer striking accents in the various displays – the 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 at 8 o’clock 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 44mm stainless steel case, itself enhanced by a dark blue Louisiana alligator leather strap with pin buckle or foldover clasp.

Thanks to the 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. Complex but easy to operate, the 89-02 movement with off-centre rotor 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 decorative finishings and characteristic details of the fine art of German watchmaking, including Glashütte stripe finish, blued screws and the hand engraving and bi-colour galvanisation of the balance cock.
