OMEGA partnered with the European Space Agency (ESA) to create a stylish Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer designed to measure every moment on planet Earth – and Mars. The timepiece is fitted with OMEGA’s 5622 Calibre – a highly precise, thermo‑compensated, quartz movement, which handles the watch’s many digital and analogue functions.
The unique 45 mm chronograph, cased in grade 2 titanium, can track times and time zones, across our plant and on Mars. Developed to assist scientists, OMEGA’s Marstimer offers a range of valuable tools for those working in the space research industry. Its functions, developed under an ESA patented license, include an 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. As well as an innovative solar compass, to find true north on planet Earth and Mars. Wearers also have access to those applications available on the traditional Speedmaster Skywalker X33, such as MET (Mission Elapsed Time), PET (Phase Elapsed Time), alarms and perpetual calendar.
The watch features black dial with the multiple analog and digital readings. Circling the dial is an oxalic anodized aluminum bezel ring in red hematite color, reminiscent of Mars’ distinctive dust. This shade can also be seen on the seconds hand, which has a black to red hematite gradient, a design code to signal an OMEGA’s status as a professional instrument.
A caseback is embossed in the centre with OMEGA’s famous Speedmaster wording and Seahorse logo. Circled by the words SPEEDMASTER X-33 MARSTIMER, ESA TESTED AND QUALIFIED. Testimony to the legitimacy of the partnership and integrity of the timepiece.
The timepiece comes with the grade 2 and 5 titanium bracelet as well as a dedicated NATO strap and strap changing tool. These are included in the special watch roll, which has a nod to the red planet on its inner lining: a reproduction of Hebes Chasma, a unique steep-sided canyon on the surface of Mars.
OMEGA’s new Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer is available at multiple locations around the world.
