Omega Speedmaster Skywalker X-33 Solar Impulse Limited Edition Watch - 0

Almost a year ago at BaselWorld 2014, Omega first introduced the world to their new X-33 watch, which was a clear stake in the ground that the brand wanted to continue to own the aviation/aerospace market much like they did in the 1990’s. Fast forward almost a year later and Omega is now out with an upgrade to the model, the Omega Speedmaster Skywalk X-33 Solar Impulse Limited edition, which brings not only a stunning new colorway, but also connects it to the Solar Impulse project. The watch’s deep blues and vibrant greens are reflective of how the rest of the universe sees us here on Earth – which in itself is far different than what we saw in the monochromatic colorway last year. Omega has been a part of the Solar Impulse project since 2006, assisting in the development of a completely solar-powered plane that will circumnavigate the world over the course of five months beginning this March. The watch itself, however, is equally impressive, with a 5619 multi-functional quartz chronograph movement, a thermo-compensated integrated circuit, and a grey-on-black liquid crystal display. In addition to hour, minute, and second displays in three different time zones, the watch has three alarms, a perpetual calendar, and two mission timers as well as a matching NATO strap. The watch will be limited to 1,924 pieces, in honor of the year that the first around the world flight took place, and will be priced at $5,200.
