Aiming for the Red Planet: Omega Takes a Giant Leap with the X-33 Marstimer

Omega has revised its modern multifunction watch as the Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer and designed it specifically for manned travel to the Red Planet. Like the Skywalker X-33 introduced in 2014, the new model, powered by an upgraded quartz caliber, has been extensively tested by the European Space Agency (ESA) and found to be capable of any extraterrestrial mission.

In addition to standard 24-hour time, the watch also displays Martian time, which includes an extra 39 minutes each day. The corresponding symbol for the celestial body indicates which time is currently being displayed. A solar compass is also included, showing the geographical north on both Earth and Mars.

As with the Skywalker X-33, three different time zones, three alarms, a chronograph, countdown, date, Mission Elapsed Time (MET), and Phase Elapsed Time (PET) are also included functions. The 45mm case is made of grade 2 titanium and features an anodized aluminum bezel in a red hue reminiscent of the surface on Mars.

The Omega Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer retails for $6,400.
