You couldn’t have missed the recent introduction of the perfect replica Omega Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer watches. It was all over our website. And for good reason. It’s not every day that you get to watch the launch of a tool watch that’s made together with a space agency. The pros at the European Space Agency (ESA) came up with a wish list of very specific timing functions they need to operate their Mars lander on the Red Planet. The presentation did answer a lot of very difficult questions, but it also left the room to ponder about the best UK Omega fake watches, its functions, and its mission. But that was something I did after the show. My thoughts about the Marstimer belong in a Coffee Corner Watch Talk. And there’s also a heads-up regarding some interesting upcoming auctions in case you want to shop for X-mas on time for once.
You can find everything there is to know about the new cheap replica Omega Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer watches in RJ’s introduction article. And if you want to see the introduction of the watch and find out about the setting during the Speedy Tuesday event at the European Space Agency (ESA), you can go here. With satellites hanging from the ceiling, the very engaging talks by different ESA scientists and French astronaut Jean-François Clervoy made quite an impact on everyone there. And so did the watch. The new top copy Omega Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer watches is not meant to be a crowd-pleaser. The watch was born out of ESA’s request for Mars-specific timing functions. And that is something that impresses me; the newest Speedmaster is a proper instrument.
ESA challenged Omega, and the watchmaker delivered
ESA challenged Omega to develop a watch that takes into account that one day on Mars is 39 minutes and 35 seconds longer than one day on our planet. Furthermore, the 1:1 luxury Omega replica watches needed to display both the time on the Red Planet and at home. After all, when working in the mission control room, is of vital importance to monitor events happening on Mars in its own timezone. The new AAA Omega fake watches would also require a solar compass because Mars has no magnetic field. The new X-33 Marstimer meets these demands.
But mentioning the word “solar” also got me thinking about the power source of the Marstimer. And after seeing solar panel after sonar panel on satellites, spacecraft, and rovers at ESA and in presentation videos, it got me thinking about a solar-powered X-33. It led me to question why the new 2022 replica Omega Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer watches isn’t outfitted with a solar-powered quartz movement — something I already touched upon in the story “Why We Need Luxury Solar-Powered Quartz Watches” that, apart from Omega, also mentioned Breitling and Grand Seiko.
I asked my question during the presentation, and the answer was that it would have meant developing a completely new caliber. Well, China Omega super clone watches is in the movement-developing business, but maybe because of the limited reach of the new X-33, creating a completely new quartz caliber powered by light rather than a battery would have been a far-too-costly affair. And while sitting in the last row in the ESA auditorium just before a presentation about possible former life on Mars, I “harassed” Omega CEO Raynald Aeschlimann on the matter again. He responded that a non-battery-driven movement was going to be less stable than a conventional battery-driven one. But before I got to mention the Seiko Astron GPS watches, the presentation started, and I couldn’t find a moment to continue the talk afterward, unfortunately.
The brand-new caliber 5622 is a mathematical wonder
Apparently, it wasn’t possible to update caliber 5619 — the multi-functional quartz chronograph movement in the Swiss made replica Omega Skywalker X-33 watches — to do the Mars-related stuff needed. Some calculations, especially for the solar compass, were just too much for the old caliber to handle. The new 111-component caliber 5622, however, features all the previous functions from the Skywalker X-33 in addition to a slew of Mars functions.
In the end, I think I found peace with the X-33 Marstimer not being solar-powered. If it were a watch for astronauts traveling to, on, and back from Mars over a long period — a manned Mars mission could take a few years, considering an unmanned one-way trip already takes seven months — having a watch without a battery would be a tremendous bonus. RJ told me about astronauts handy enough to swap the battery of an X-33 in space, but that’s something you don’t want to burden a Mars voyager with. But since the Marstimer is intended for use on Earth and with an authorized Omega dealer never too far away, I’ll let it slide… for now. Still, the first fake Omega watches for sale intended specifically for space travel better be solar-powered. Am I nitpicking here, or do you agree?
