It was at BaselWorld 2014 that Omega debuted the new Omega speedmaster X-33 series replica watches UK, which we referred to as “the real heir to the cult favorite Omega X-33 aviation/aerospace watch of the 1990s.” Now, as a new-for-2015 version we have the Omega Speedmaster Skywalker X-33 Solar Impulse Limited Edition, which adds what first appears to be a stunning color combination that links this space-age watch to an interesting project called Solar Impulse.
We were excited to go hands-on with the new X-33 in 2014, a version with a case and bracelet in grade 2 titanium and a color scheme that overall appeared to be mono-chromatic – save for a splash of red on the seconds hand. With the Solar Impulse limited edition the X-33 receives a much more colorful outfit and one that, with its deep blues and vibrant greens, is admittedly more linked to planet Earth than the cold nothingness of outer space.
While the 45 millimeter wide case fake Omega watches are still crafted from grade 2 titanium, new is the beautiful blue of the ceramic bezel, the green and blue rings on the periphery of the dial, as well as the green seconds hand. The reason for this Earth-themed color selection is that with this limited edition, Omega connects the X-33 with the Solar Impulse project, which they have been a part of since its earliest phases back in 2006.
The aim of this project is to create an airplane that is powered only by solar energy and is capable of flying around the globe, as Swiss Omega replica watches online put it: “making a bold statement about viable alternatives to non-renewable energy.” In March 2015, the around-the-world Solar Impulse flight will take off from Abu Dhabi and over five months the pilots will stop in Asia, North America and Southern Europe, flying day and night, to complete the first solar-powered circumnavigation of the world.
Omega has been on a roll over the last few years as the storied Swiss watch maker continues to produce both crowd-pleasing new designs and also “collector bait” timepieces which find happy homes on the wrists of hardcore watch enthusiasts. What is Omega’s secret? That is a tough question to answer as I’m still investigating the story, but it seems to be a combination of putting a lot of resources simultaneously into marketing as well as product development (most brands are good at only one or the other). A close inspection of a watch like the just-announced 2016 Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar replica watches UKreveals a few of Omega’s top fluencies.
It was only about a year ago that we introduced the standard Omega Globemaster collection. The 39mm-wide watch debuted in a range of materials including, steel, 18k yellow gold, 18k Sedna (rose) gold, and platinum along with the cryptic slogan “The World’s First Master Chronometer.”
What is a “Omega fake Master Chronometer series copy watches UK?” That is a good question. Of course, the Globemaster is the first of its kind, as it is a name that Omega just came up with to refer to their most advanced movements which have been certified using their most advanced techniques. “Master Chronometer” watches are those which have been METAS certified under a new set of standards developed by an arm of the Swiss government and Omega. The certification is easily one of the most rigorous for Swiss watch movements, as it exceeds COSC Chronometer standards in addition to testing for intense anti-magnetic properties, as well as testing the movements cased up inside of the watches – versus only outside prior to being “cased.”
By 2017, Omega should have about a dozen or so of its in-house made movements Omega replica watches being certified in its expanding METAS testing department which exists in-house at the Omega facility in Bienne, Switzerland. The Globemaster with its caliber 8900 movement was the first to be METAS certified, and that continues with the Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar and its in-house-made caliber 8922 automatic Co-Axial movement.
