The Best Replica Omega Speedmaster Skywalker X-33 Solar Impulse Limited Edition Watch features the Omega calibre 5619 multi-functional quartz chronograph movement, with a thermo-compensated integrated circuit, with analog hands and a grey-on-black liquid crystal display that can indicate the hour, minute and seconds of up to three different time zones. The reason for this Earth-themed color selection is that with this limited edition, Omega connects the X-33 with the Solar Impulse project, which they have been a part of since its earliest phases back in 2006.
With the Omega Speedmaster Skywalker X-33 Solar Impulse Limited Edition Replica Watch receives a much more colorful outfit and one that, with its deep blues and vibrant greens, is admittedly more linked to planet Earth than the cold nothingness of outer space. While the 45 millimeter wide case is still crafted from grade 2 titanium, new is the beautiful blue of the ceramic bezel, the green and blue rings on the periphery of the dial, as well as the green seconds hand.
In March 2015, the around-the-world Solar Impulse flight will take off from Omega Speedmaster Skywalker X-33 Replica Watch and over five months the pilots will stop in Asia, North America and Southern Europe, flying day and night, to complete the first solar-powered circumnavigation of the world. We were excited to go hands-on with the new X-33 in 2014, a version with a case and bracelet in grade 2 titanium and a color scheme that overall appeared to be mono-chromatic – save for a splash of red on the seconds hand.
It has three alarms, chronograph and countdown functions, and a perpetual calendar with day, date, month, year and week number indications, as well as mission timers such as mission elapsed time (MET) and phase elapsed time (PET), and of course a backlight. The aim of this project is to create an Omega Speedmaster Replica Watch that is powered only by solar energy and is capable of flying around the globe, as Omega puts it: “making a bold statement about viable alternatives to non-renewable energy.”
