On February 25, 2016, last Thursday, the golden balance prize award ceremony was grandly held. Glashütte’s original Senator Cosmopolite World Time watch wins the crown in the category “above 25,000 Euros”. One of the most prestigious awards in watchmaking is the Golden Balance, which honors special watches, new creations and classic timepieces.
A total of 354 watches participated in the selection of this year’s ‘Golden Balance Award’. Readers of FOCUS, FOCUSOnline and UHREN-MAGAZIN selected the most appreciated works in the five categories. From November last year to January this year, 21,000 enthusiastic readers cast their votes.
Glashütte’s original SenatorCosmopolite World Time watch won the highest honor of the year. This watch cleverly combines the power of innovation, traditional craftsmanship and the best features. The Calibre89-02 self-winding movement, originally developed by Saxony Glashütte, is equipped with a complex world time mechanism to meet the practical needs of modern global travelers.
This watch can display the time information of two time zones at the same time, taking daylight saving time (DST) and standard time (STD) into consideration, the design is exquisite and the function is complicated. The parliamentary World Time watch covers 37 time zones around the world, represented by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) airport code.
On the outside, this sophisticated timepiece is classic and elegant. Lacquered silver frosted dial with black plated and laser-engraved digital hour markers and orbital graduated rings. Through the anti-glare curved sapphire crystal case back, you can clearly appreciate the details and features brought by Germany’s top watchmaking technology, such as blue steel screws and elegant Glashütte stripe retouching.
