    Default 37 Timezones, review of the Glashütte Original Cosmopolite by Jocke

    37 Timezones



    Of course we are talking about the Glashütte Original Cosmopolite Ref nr: 89-02-01-05-30 in red gold



    A travel watch with a lot of options like 2 timezones, day and night indicator, a timezone ring with 37 IATA codes, power reserve indicator,

    a small second and panorama date





    The case is 44mm and a white sparkling dial with black painted romans, 3 crowns and a quickset push-button for the date



    The small dial for the home time, the window below 12 is the power reserve and the hole over 6 is the day and night indicator for the home time



    Beside the big blue hands for the local time is the day and night indicator for the local time with a sun for the day and stars for the night



    The window for the IATA airport codes shows both standard time and daylight saving time



    Here you can see the disc for the IATA codes for all the timezones



    A close look for the quickset date push-button



    The case is very comfortable and the watch feels smaller than 44mm it is on the wrist, the sapphire backcase shows the movement



    The kaliber 89-02 is a inhouse automatic movement with 2 time zones, a micro rotor, three-quarter plate, 72 hour power reserve with a power

    reserve indicator, day and night indicator for both time zones, 28 800 bph, 63 jewels, duplex swan-neck, screw balance with 4 regulation

    screws, incablock shock protection, small second hand with second stop and panorama date



    There is a lot of different type of finishes on the different parts at the movement to get a great balance, blued screws and 21-ct gold oscillation

    weight that make the rotor spin



    There is a lot of different things to do in the machine shop to get a great effect



    The details withstand a close look



    A clearly appealing watch that balance beautifully in white and blue, I prefer the white gold version over this but it's a matter of taste



    I want to send the Glashütte Original a very big thanks that let me borrow this watch for the Christmas and the New Year celebration



    And a few wristshots.

    It was a pleasure to decorate the Christmas tree



    And sing carols for the children

    Incredible pictures as always Jocke.

    Wasn't there a Bruce Springsteen song about this watch? "37 timezones and nothin' on" or something like that? :big grin:
