German watchmaker Glashütte Original presents a magnificent and innovative mechanical masterpiece, the Senator Cosmopolite, equipped with the new Calibre 89-02. Following the launch of the exquisite Grande Cosmopolite Tourbillon in 2012, with this model the Saxon manufactory adds a new mechanical work of art specifically aimed at the world traveller. Despite its complexity, this exceptional watch is marvellously intuitive and has been designed for everyday use.

Connoisseurs of fine German watchmaking will doubtless appreciate both the aesthetic dimensions of the Senator Cosmopolite and the extraordinary mechanics within. The new automatic Calibre 89-02 was developed in-house by the Saxon manufactory to meet the needs of today’s world travellers. The ability to track the time of day in two time zones at once is made possible by an intricate set of finely engineered, integrated complications. 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; 3 remaining zones at quarter- or three-quarter hour offsets from GMT are represented by the relevant IATA location code in red; the color coding allows one to identify the offset from GMT at a glance.
