The Omega Speedmaster and Space are almost synonymous. Omega has just released the new Speedmaster Skywalker X-33. Not only was this watch tested by the ESA (European Space Agency), but it was also developed based on an ESA patent filed by astronaut Jean-François Clervoy.
This NEW monster of multi-functions is made out of titanium and is 45mm in case size. The movement is a mulit-function quartz chronograph movement which is proprietary of ETA. The functions displayed are: hour, minute and seconds of up to three different time zones, three alarms, chronograph and countdown functions, and a perpetual calendar with day, date, month, year and week number indications. It also features mission elapsed time (MET) and phase elapsed time (PET) for space missions.
Multifunction watches can look cheap and can be really complex in the way they are laid out and work, but this NEW Omega Speedmaster Skywalker X-33 is modern, technical, sophisticated, bold & clean.
The bezel is made out of ceramic, while the indices and hands are treated with white super luminova . The crystal is AR coated and the watch is water resistant to 30 meters. The bracelet is also made out of titanium and this watch strikes the perfect blance between a modern day well constructed analog and digital watch for the future.
