Many travelers need to travel frequently from one time zone to another for business or leisure travel. GLASHÜTTE ORIGINAL Original World Time watch is professionally designed to meet the complex needs of today’s global travelers. In 2015, World Time launched 18K rose gold and 18K white gold versions. In 2018, the watch once again launched an elegant stainless steel version. Through the innovative time zone mechanism on the watch-showing the day and night time of the local and destination in the 35 world time zones currently in use, the brand’s Saxony factory stores the time around the world on the wrists of global travelers.
Following the rose gold and platinum models, Glashütte’s original Senator Cosmopolite watch has a new stainless steel version in 2018, and the threshold will be revised again.
The new Senator World Time watch is matched with Glashütte’s original typical style, with a very modern appearance and temperament. The dark blue pear-shaped hands slide easily over the matte white dial, passing the new blue Arabic numerals and hour markers. Black details provide elegant embellishments on various display windows. Two slim display windows are positioned harmoniously at 8 o’clock on the faceplate; the International Airport Code (IATA) is used to indicate the destination in one of three colors, taking into account daylight saving time and standard time. The new design of the day and night display, with a small sun and stylish night sky elements, is located at 9 o’clock. The 44 mm diameter stainless steel case is complemented by satin and highly polished alternating finishes, and a dark blue Louisiana alligator leather strap with pin buckle or folding buckle.
Unlike the precious metal version, the watch’s day and night display is completely new, with a small sun and stylish night sky elements, while the dark blue pear-shaped hands slide easily over the matte white dial, through the new blue Arabic numerals and hour Mark
With the parliamentary world time watch, the wearer can set the day and night time in two time zones at the same time, without any time difference calculation. Through a time zone ring, you can select the currently used time zone among all 35 world time zones, and each time zone is represented by the corresponding official international airport code. Of the 35 official time zones, 24 time zones that differ from the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) by one hour are displayed in black windows at the 8 o’clock position in the international airport code. The other eight time zones that differ from Greenwich Mean Time by half an hour are indicated by the blue international airport code, while the remaining three time zones that differ by three quarters of an hour are indicated by the red international airport code; through color changes, the wearer can Quickly determine deviations from Greenwich Mean Time.

Two windows at 8 o’clock on the faceplate allow the wearer to distinguish between summer time and standard time (summer time DST / standard time STD); in addition, the day and night of the local and destination can be determined. When traveling, the complex mechanism of the movement adjusts the necessary dates forward or backward.
The 89-02 movement is equipped with an eccentric automatic disk. The oscillation system is adjusted by four golden screws on the edge of the balance wheel: the non-clamping spring allows the movement to run continuously for a longer time, thereby achieving higher accuracy.
The 89-02 calibre was developed in-house at the watchmaking factory in Glashütte. It contains more than 400 parts, is equipped with an eccentric automatic disc, has a frequency of 4 Hz, and has a power reserve of at least 72 hours. The shock system is adjusted by four golden screws on the edge of the balance wheel: the cardless hairspring allows the movement to run continuously for longer periods of time, thereby achieving higher accuracy. When a traveler wishes to set the destination time, the unique mechanism of the Senator Cosmopolite World Time watch is activated: when traveling eastward (time ahead), the wearer can rotate the crown at 4 o’clock clockwise until the destination time zone The IATA code appears in the corresponding DST or STD window. If traveling westward (time delay), the wearer rotates the crown counterclockwise. In both cases, the central hour and minute hands jump forward or backward in 15-minute steps until the IATA code of the destination time zone is displayed in the corresponding DST or STD window. After that, the traveler does not need to make any further changes: the central hour and minute hands will indicate the correct time at the destination, with the correct day and night display at 9 o’clock and the correct date for the traveler’s destination.
