First launched in 1957 and designed for the world of automotive racing, the highly versatile design of the classic Speedmaster made it an incredibly practical timepiece, but the version that was flight-qualified by NASA and used during the early days of human space exploration was never actually built for that specific task. At its core, the classic Best Replica Speedmaster Moonwatch is a racing chronograph, but that has not stopped Omega from producing other versions of the Speedmaster over the years that have been designed from the ground up for use in environments outside of this planet.
The new watch is a result of a request made by the European Space Agency (ESA) for a timepiece with specific functions for keeping track of time on Mars. Compared to Earth, a day on Mars is 2.7% longer, meaning that a normal wristwatch will not be able to properly track the Red Planet’s unique daily cycle. The primary reason these Mars-specific features weren’t just developed as software and built into an existing smartwatch or connected device is due to battery life.
Unlike a smartwatch that will need to be charged every few days at the most, the Cheap Omega Replica Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer will run for at least two years before it needs to have its battery replaced. Additionally, just like the X-33 Skywalker that was first launched in 2014, the new X-33 Marstimer is also tested and flight-qualified by the ESA, and it was subjected to the same extensive texts to guarantee that it can survive the extreme acceleration, temperatures, vibrations, and radiation that exists in outer space.
The case is crafted from brushed grade 2 titanium and measures 45mm in diameter by 14.9mm-thick — which sounds absolutely massive, yet it manages its size surprisingly well and is quite wearable on the wrist. Even the classic High Quality Omega Replica Watches has a 42mm case diameter, and the fact that the X-33’s case slightly extends around its crown and the four pushers that are used to operate its digital functions give it on-paper dimensions that are quite a bit larger than the on-wrist presence they actually provide.
The outside of the caseback features Omega’s famous seahorse emblem, along with an engraving denoting that the model is tested and qualified by the ESA. Where the Marstimer begins to differ from the existing X-33 Skywalker is when it comes to its bezel. Rather than having an insert made from black ceramic, the new Swiss Omega Fake Watches Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer features a bezel insert made from oxalic anodized aluminum in a red hematite color that is intended to be reminiscent of the red dust on Mars.
Rather than being bright red with a black base, the seconds hand fitted to the Omega Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer features a gradient effect that fades from black at the base to the model’s signature red hematite color at its tip. Beyond the color of the seconds hand, the dial itself is the exact same, and it features a large digital screen that serves as the background for the trio of centrally-mounted hands, along with luminous hour markers and the obligatory Omega Replica Watches Swiss Movement branding appearing at the 3 o’clock location.
Included with the new model is a matching titanium bracelet, which is crafted from both grade 2 and grade 5 titanium and follows the previous Speedmaster bracelet design, rather than the updated version that debuted on the new Moonwatch models with Cal. 3861 movements. Additionally, the new Clone Omega Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer also comes with an alternate NATO strap that features thin accenting stripes on the edges in the same red hematite color that can be found throughout the rest of the watch, plus a color-coordinated strap changing tool to facilitate swapping between the two options.
Realistically speaking, a crewed mission to Mars will still be a number of years away, but Omega has already created the ideal Omega Replica for the pioneering astronauts to use when the time comes for them to take the next step in human space travel legacy. In the same way that the classic manually-wound Speedmaster became the Moonwatch when it reached the surface of the moon, Omega is positioning the X-33 Marstimer to be the official Marswatch, when humans finally set foot on the Red Planet for the first time.
