Glashütte Original strikes gold at the awards
In its 18th edition, the Golden Balance is one of the most coveted awards in watchmaking. This year saw readers of Focus, Focus Online, and Uhren-magazin cast more than 21,000 thousand votes to pick their favourite watches among 354 models in five price categories. After the smoke cleared, Glashütte Original’s Senator Cosmopolite world time watch was awarded the first prize in the “Watches over €25,000” category.
Featuring an in-house automatic 89-02 movement that can be viewed through the crystal case back, the Senator Cosmopolite displays the time of day in two time zones simultaneously, while taking Daylight Saving Time and Standard Time into account. Its time zone ring features 37 world time zones, each represented by an official IATA location code. The dial is elaborately lacquered, with fine silver graining and galvanic black, laser-engraved numerals and railroad chapter ring.
