The Omega Speedmaster Skywalker X-33 is designed for space adventurers and explorers.
As one of Solar Impulse’s Main Partners, Omega is playing an important role in this venture providing both capital support and key technologies including a lighter, more efficient landing light system, an upgraded, lightweight version of the Omega Instrument and an energy dispatcher which transfers energy from one engine to another in the event one experiences an energy deficiency. The Omega Speedmaster Skywalker X-33 is part of the Speedmaster collection but with many distinctive features, the first being a high-end quartz movement produced by ETA exclusively for Omega and supporting analog and digital displays.
The black dial, with white indexes and hour markers, has a central opening allowing the wearer to read the displayed digital elements such as the 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.
The additional mission elapsed time and phase elapsed time functions remind that this watch was prepared for space explorations. In fact, the Skywalker X-33 has already been approved by the ESA for use in space and on the International Space Station.
The back light makes the indications perfectly readable in any light conditions. For a more traditional look, the LCD digital display can be turned off.The 45 mm case, made of titanium, features a rotating bezel with ceramic insert.
