Golden Ac­co­lade

Glashütte Orig­i­nal strikes gold at the awards

World of Watches (Singapore) - - News -

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.
