New omega speedmaster skywalker x-33 solar impulse limited edition watch replica
The New omega speedmaster skywalker x-33 solar impulse limited edition watch replica (now discontinued) was first launched in 1998 for astronauts (and pilots), as a multi-function, analog-digital wristwatch to help them make flight calculations – a true professional watch. The Speedmaster Skywalker X-33 Solar Impulse limited edition has been developed in conjunction with the Solar Impulse airplane/project, which according to their website “is the only airplane of perpetual endurance, able to fly day and night on solar power, without a drop of fuel.”
Omega plans to debut a new limited edition of their omega speedmaster skywalker x-33 solar impulse limited edition watch replica analog-digital Speedmaster watch at Baselworld next month. The Solar Impulse project aims to change this and to promote the viability of solar power around the world. And, they will do just that in the coming weeks, by completing the first solar-powered circumnavigation of the globe.
The sun is capable of powering virtually everything that currently runs on electricity or fossil fuels, but in a clean way, without ruining the planet. Yet, while the use of solar power is growing around the world, it is still a vastly underutilized way of producing energy.
For 2015, omega speedmaster replica has made an all new model (the X-33 Skywalker/X-33 Skywalker Limited Edition) that is presented in a titanium case that is 45 mm diameter (the original was 42.5 mm). It is in grade 2 titanium, and the watch head weighs just 59.50 grams. Moreover, the bezel now features a new and improved – virtually scratch proof – ceramic bezel insert.
Functionality has been improved as well with digital readouts including triple time zones, three alarms, perpetual calendar, chronograph, and countdown timer, mission elapsed time (MET) and phase elapsed time (PET). Notably, the Solar Impulse model includes an extra loud alarm that chimes every 20 minutes at a volume of 90 to 100 decibels to keep the pilots awake during the night.
The original Solar Impulse prototype has already achieved 8 world records, and next, the omega speedmaster skywalker x-33 replica and its pilots will attempt the “First Round-The-World Solar Flight.” The Si2 will take-off from Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirate, in late February or early March and return by late July or early August 2015.
