   The 44 mm stainless steel case is satin-finished and finely polished. Dark blue printed Arabic numerals and blue hour markers complement the matte white lacquered dial. The small seconds at 6 o’clock and the large calendar at 4 o’clock complete the blue central minute and hour hands. An independent local time display at 12 o’clock with a particularly practical day and night display and power reserve indicator. The two auxiliary dials are surrounded by slender bright silver rings.
   At 8 o’clock, two display windows closely follow the curve of the dial, and the destination time zone is displayed through the IATA international airport code in one of three colors, taking into account daylight saving time and standard time.

Time zone crossing, at your fingertips

During the development process, Glashütte original engineers added complexity and modernity to the product line, while paying particular attention to its ease of use.
   With the Senator Cosmopolite World Time watch, the wearer can set the time in two time zones at the same time. The time zone ring provides options for the 36 world time zones currently in use. Each time zone is displayed by the IATA code representing the relevant time zone international airport.

With two windows at 8 o’clock, the wearer can set the summer time and standard time (summer time-DST / standard time-STD); the day and night display is easy to read and provides more information for local and destination. When traveling, the complex mechanism of the movement will adjust the necessary date forward or backward.
   The watch setup is very simple: local time can be set via the crown at 2 o’clock, and the current time zone can be selected via the crown at 8 o’clock. When traveling eastward (early ahead), turn the crown at 4 o’clock clockwise until the destination time zone IATA code appears in the corresponding DST or STD window. If traveling westward (time delay), turn the crown counterclockwise. In both cases, the central hour and minute hands move forward or backward in 15-minute steps to adjust in coordination with the IATA code of the destination time zone in the 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, and further improve the accuracy of the time display with the correct day and night display at 9 o’clock and the correct date of the destination. When setting the destination time, if the time is past midnight, the large calendar will show the corresponding date change backward or forward depending on the situation.
