Glashütte Original - Senator Cosmopolite

| 2 Comments
Presented at Baseworld 2015 and targeted to world travellers, the new Glashütte Original Senator Cosmopolite offers the rare ability to track the time of day at home and away simultaneously, in any two of 37 world time zones.


The destination time is represented by the central hour and minute hands, small seconds dial at 6 o’clock, day/night indicator at 9 o’clock, and the signature Panorama Date display at 4 o’clock.

At 8 o’clock two small windows indicate whether Daylight Saving Time (DST) or Standard Time (STD) is in effect in the destination time zone.

The time zone wheel displays a choice of 37 world time zones, each indicated by the official IATA location code designating a key international airport in the zone. The 24 time zones that are aligned at full-hour offsets with Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) present a black IATA code in the DST or STD window at 8 o’clock; 10 time zones aligned with GMT at half-hour offsets appear in blue; the 3 remaining zones at quarter- or three-quarter hour offsets from GMT are represented in red; the color coding allows one to identify the offset from GMT at a glance.





The dial has a lacquered silver-grained finish and features a black railroad chapter ring framing black Roman numerals. The central poire hour and minute hands as well as the other hands are crafted in blued steel.

The home time sub-dial at 12 o'clock, central hour and minute hands and the small seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock are symmetrically positioned along the central vertical axis. Along the central horizontal axis the destination time day/night dial at 9 o’clock shows a night sky on the lower half and a yellow sun on the upper, complemented at 3 o’clock by the Glashütte Original logo.

The 72-hour power reserve indicator is located within the home time dial and shows a black dot by night and a light dot by day.




The 4 Hz (28,800 vph) automatic movement, comprised of over 400 individual components, is visible through the sapphire crystal case back allowing the owner to admire details like the typical Glashütte stripe finish, the brand’s double-G logo on the off-centre rotor, blued screws and above all the hand-engraved and galvanised balance cock.


The mechanics of this movement is extremely sophisticated if you consider how you set the destination time. If heading east (forwards in time), you just turns the crown at 4 o’clock clockwise until the IATA code representing the destination time zone appears in the relevant DST or STD window. If travelling west (back in time), you turn the crown counter-clockwise.

In both cases, the central hour and minute hands jump ahead (or back) in 15-minute intervals until the destination time zone’s IATA code appears in the relevant DST or STD window. At that point, the central hour and minute hands will display the correct time at destination, augmented by the correct day/night indication at 9 o’clock and by the correct display of the date at destination. If the time at the chosen destination is ahead or back a day, the Panorama Date display will change accordingly without user intervention.


The 44 mm case of the Glashütte Original Senator Cosmopolite is available red gold or white gold matched to a  black or blue Louisiana alligator leather strap with prices of Euro 36,500 / US$ 43.500 and Euro 38,000 / US$ 45.300 respectively.
