OMEGA is traveling past the Moon and setting its sights on Mars in its newest Speedmaster release. Developed in partnership with the European Space Agency (ESA), the OMEGA Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer keeps track of time on Earth and Mars.

Powered by an OMEGA’s 5622 Calibre — a thermo‑compensated quartz movement — the watch packs an MTC function to track Mars’ sol date and time at the prime meridian, allowing for the fact that a day on Mars is 39 minutes longer than on Earth. There’s also a solar compass, to find true north on planet Earth and Mars.

The 45mm chronograph also features grade 2 titanium construction, an oxalic anodized aluminum bezel in red hematite (a reference to Mars), a gradient seconds hand, a titanium bracelet, a NATO strap with changing tool, and a watch roll.

Raynald Aeschlimann, President, and CEO of OMEGA comments, “Anyone interested in space, or even science fiction, is obsessed with Mars. It has generated so much curiosity and so many incredible stories. We have even created a name for its imaginary inhabitants. It’s so close yet so far. We long to walk across its surface. To be here on Earth and able to track its movements, gives the term timepiece a whole new meaning. I’m thrilled with this new addition to the famous Speedmaster family.”
