Omega’s Latest Speedmaster Can Tell Time On Mars
The insanely cool watch further cements the Omega Speedmaster’s otherwordly legacy.
If any brand has the expertise and history to create a watch designed to quite literally take you to another part of the galaxy, it’s Omega. The Speedmaster was worn during America’s first space walk, and the model has also graced the wrist of 007 himself, but the new Omega Speedmaster Marstimer takes things to another level, literally.
To wit: The Omega Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer was designed and built to allow the wearer to tell the time on both Earth — and Mars, of course.
It’s an insanely cool, jaw-dropping innovation that’s plenty of fun, if not entirely practical for your average watch enthusiast.
The overbuilt 45mm diameter timepiece is as rugged yet refined, and as eye-catching, as any Omega Speedmaster model — with a few extra bells and whistles, to boot.
The contrasting black dial includes a digital display accessed via a left-side pusher, which will then engage the Mars time display — and for good measure, the legendary watchmaker included solar compass functionality on the impressive timepiece.
The handsome watch differs from other Omega watches thanks to the deep red aluminum bezel, fittingly colored in a nod to the Red Planet itself.
As if the watch wasn’t unique enough, you’re also given the option to switch out the durable bracelet for a distinctive striped NATO strap, as one secret agent might do himself.
The watch nods to the company’s legacy of space travel and timepiece innovation, said Omega President and CEO Raynald Aeschlimann.
“To be here on Earth and able to track its movements, gives the term timepiece a whole new meaning,” he said in a statement.
Suffice to say, it’s an out-of-this-galaxy watch meant to be admired and cherished, and it’s available for an investment-level $6,400 at Omega right now.
