GLASHÜTTE ORIGINAL SENATOR COSMOPOLITEMINIMALISTWORLD TRAVELER While this top-notch German watch brand has produced a world-time Cosmopolitan watch for several years, the all-new sequel is crafted in stainless steel with a more minimalist dial design. The 44mmwatch displays home time in a subdial at 12 o’clock. This subdial is harmoniously balanced with a seconds subdial at 6 o’clock. At 8 o’clock, two display windows show the destination, or second time zone, using international airport codes, along with displays for daylight saving and standard time. Nearby, 9 o’clock has a newly designed day/night indicator with the sun and night sky of the second time zone. The time-zone ring that depicts the airport codes offers 36 time zones (including those with 30-minute differentiations) —with the primary 24 zones listed in blue and the remaining in red. Home time is set with the crown at 2 o’clock, and the current time is set using the crown at 8 o’clock, making it easy to use. $21,500, available atWempe in NewYork, contact Melanie Epstein, firstname.lastname@example.org, +1 212 397 9000, glashuette-original.com
HERMÈS SLIMD’HERMÈS GMT Discreetly elegant, the new Slim d’Hermès GMT watch, with a slate gray dial and a smoked crystal, offers an interesting take on a GMT. Powered by the ultra-thin Manufacture Hermès H1950 movement topped with an ultra-thin GMT module made exclusively for Hermès by Agenhor, the 39.5mm case is crafted of palladium. In addition to 42 hours of power reserve, the watch indicates the date, hours, minutes, GMT, as well as day/night indications for both home and local time. The GMT subdial is silver with unusually placed numerals — a nod to Hermès’s whimsical side. The subdial at 6 o’clock shows the date, and the two dots — blue for night and white for day — show whether it is day or night in both local and home time. The watch also features a shaded gray sapphire crystal caseback and is finished with a matte graphite-gray alligator strap with blue stitching. All of the numerals use the exclusive numeral font designed by Philippe Apeloig. $14,700, available at Hermès in New York, +1 800 441 4488, hermes.com.
ARNOLD & SON GLOBETROTTER A three-dimensional work of art, Globetrotter shows a second time zone via the world map in its center. While most world timers have the cities listed on a chapter ring, this timepiece expects the wearer to set the local time’s hour hand, then set the home time by finding the location on the map using the crown, then aligning it with the 24-hour sapphire ring. The intriguing piece uses the Arnold & Son self-winding A&S6022 caliber. The domed globe depicts the Northern Hemisphere as seen from above the North Pole. The beautiful map was created in brass. The continents are chemically etched, then hand-finished. The mountains were sandblasted to create visual depth and the oceans are lacquered with blue tones. The globe is held in place via an arched bridge that spans the diameter of the dial. The 45mm watch is one of the world’s largest rotating 3D world-time displays, with all three functions set from the crown. $16,995, available at Cellini Jewelers in New York, contact Leon Adams, owner, info@cellinijewelers. com, +1 800 235 5464, arnoldandson.com
