Presenting the new generation of Omega Speedmaster X-33

Crafted in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA), the new Omega Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer can track time on Mars
The Speedmaster Professional or Moonwatch, which was the first watch to land on the Moon in 1969, might be the most popular timepiece by Omega but it certainly isn’t the only one to have been crafted for space exploration. The Swiss brand has long been in partnership with the European Space Agency (ESA) and built a handful of formidable tool watches that are perfectly suited for modern-day astronauts. Now they have introduced their latest creation, the Omega Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer, which can track time on Mars.

The latest watch is the ​fourth generation of the Speedmaster X-33 and is presented in a 45mm grade 2 titanium case along with the Mars-themed oxalic anodized aluminium bezel ring in red hematite colour, which is reminiscent of the red planet’s distinctive dust. The same colour can also be seen on the seconds hand, which has a black to red hematite gradient. Like its predecessors, the new Omega watch comes with an LCD display with backlight function along with a combination of analogue (hours, minutes, seconds) and digital indications.

The biggest update in the new Omega watch is the MTC function to track Mars’ sol date and time at the prime meridian, allowing for the fact that a day on Mars is 39 minutes longer than on Earth. Meanwhile, the Omega Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer also has an innovative solar compass, to find true north on planet Earth and Mars in addition to the applications found in the traditional Speedmaster Skywalker X33, such as MET (Mission Elapsed Time), PET (Phase Elapsed Time), alarms and perpetual calendar.

The Omega Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer is powered by Calibre 5622—a quartz movement with a battery life of 24 months. It is paired with either a grade 2 and grade 5 titanium bracelet or a dedicated NATO strap.
