The Omega Speedmaster Skywalker X-33 Solar Impulse Limited Edition commemorates the Solar Impulse project, which officially began in 2003 and aims to circle the globe in an airplane powered by the sun.
This new watch follows the Skywalker X-33 Solar Impulse that Omega released last year. Before that, Omega released another Solar Impulse watch in 2010. This first watch celebrated the airplane's maiden voyage. While the quartz multi-function movement and 45mm titanium case with ceramic bezel remain unchanged, the overall aesthetic of this year’s model has been greatly changed (and in my opinion, improved). The grade 2 titanium case is 45mm in diameter and houses the Omega calibre 5619, an analog-digital movement, which features a wide variety of functions, all of which can be viewed under the specs. tab here. It will be produced in an edition limited to 1,924 pieces. The number has no direct relation to Solar Impulse, but it represents the first around-the-world flight. You can find the watch on Omega's website here.
