THE SPEEDMASTER HB-SIA GMT: THE SUN WILL SHOW US THE WAY!
“OMEGA actively participates in the Solar Impulse project as a Main Partner...”
OMEGA AND SOLAR IMPULSE
OMEGA is a Main Partner and provided key technology to HB-SIA including a test bench, a lightweight landing light system and the OMEGA Instrument, a device that helps pilots maintain the plane’s stability on approach and landing. The brand has made additional contributions to the prototype’s successor, HB-SIB, the plane used in the circumnavigation of the globe.
THE SPEEDMASTER HB-SIA GMT CHRONOGRAPH
A BOLD RUBBER STRAP
The specially designed rubber strap has a distinctive, textured finish on the inside, reminiscent of Solar Impulse’s carbon fibre-honeycomb composite structure. The strap comes in black, which perfectly matches the dial, or in orange, complementing the subtle ochre HB-SIA lettering on the dial and the designation, “TACHYMETER BASE 1000” on the titanium bezel.
