We do want to acknowledge and give respect to Omega on their patience with releasing a Mars watch. Omega could have taken the easy route years ago and created a rust colored Moonwatch but they didn’t. They would have sold them all and made a ton of money but they patiently waited for the right time. Omega knew the day would come that humanity would be going to Mars and they saved the release of their Mars watch for when the time was right and when they could get the technology correct.
Will The Omega Marstimer Be The First Watch Worn On Mars
At the moment, the only watch that has been selected by any space agency to make the trip to Mars is the Omega Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer. This watch was selected by the ESA but is likely to be adopted by other space agencies in the future. As of right now we do not know if the replica omega watches Marstimer will be the first watch worn on the moon but we do know that it will be on the mission.
Omega 5622 Movement
Omega had to develop an entirely new movement for the Omega Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer. They had to engineer a movement that could not only handle the rigors of space travel but also track time instantaneously of two different planets. What Omega came up with was the new thermo-compensated quartz calibre 5622 movement. The Omega calibre 5622 movement has some unique complications developed under a patented ESA license. Below we will list all the applications of the Omega Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer and explain in detail.
Martian Time Coordinated (MTC) & Two Martian Timezones
This is the universal time on Mars on the 0° longitude and the ability to track 2 additional timezones simultaneously. These setting can also track how many sols (martian days) since landing on the planet.
Automatic conversions are made with the Marstimer to account for the difference in time during a day and year. As an example, a sol (day on mars) is 24 hours 39 minutes and a year is 669 sols.
Our journey to Mars has officially begun and it is fitting that Omega will be guiding us on our expedition. The Mission to Mars is quickly approaching and Omega has wasted no time engineering a audemars piguet replica watches that is perfect for this adventure in every way.
What makes the Omega Marstimer so special is that it is purpose built. The European Space Agency (ESA) worked closely with Omega and provided specs & functions needed to be a part of the Mars missions. The new Omega Mars watch will be commissioned for ESA mission control center employees, ESA astronauts working at the International Space Station, and all future ESA astronauts traveling to Mars.
The features and function of the Omega Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer is what makes this watch special. When we first read all the different calculations & functions the new Mars watch can do, we were overloaded. There are no doubts that the new Omega Mars watch is a pure tool watch built for for one mission, connecting humans with Mars.
Omega Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer Nato Strap
At first glance you’ll notice the rust colored bezel. This color matches the surface of the Red Planet which makes this such a cool design element. The next feature you’ll notice is the digital dial, which is where you’ll control almost all the functions of the X-33 Marstimer. We’ll get into more details on this later in our article.
