OMEGA’s pioneering spirit has taken us on adventures beyond the earth’s atmosphere and below the surface of the ocean. That same enthusiasm for exploration continues with the launch of the Speedmaster Skywalker X-33, a natural extension of OMEGA’s legacy in space.
Designed especially for space explorers, the Speedmaster Skywalker X-33 is an innovative upgrade of the Speedmaster Professional X-33 released in 1998. The new model, powered by an advanced quartz calibre, was developed to meet the needs of astronauts and others who can appreciate its impressive variety of functions.

The ceramic bezel features a chromium nitride scale. There is luminescent white Super-LumiNova with green emission on the 60-minute indicator.
The 45 mm brushed case is made of grade 2 titanium and features a brushed crown and pushers.
The liquid crystal display (LCD) with an electroluminescent backlight features grey segments on a black background.
The bracelet is made of brushed grade 2 titanium with grade 5 titanium links on a brushed fold-over clasp. The cover and opening pushers are made of grade 5 titanium; the inner folding clasp is in grade 2. “Omega Speedmaster Professional” is engraved on the clasp cover.
The black dial, with its white indexes and hour markers, has a central opening that allows the wearer to read the displayed digital elements such as the time in up to three different time zones, three alarms, chronograph and countdown functions, and a perpetual calendar. In addition to its analogue and digital displays, it tracks mission elapsed time and phase elapsed time.
Skeletonised black and white hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova which emits a green light. The bold red central seconds hand is clearly visible. The hands can be disengaged to allow clear reading of the digital display. The liquid crystal display (LCD) with an electroluminescent backlight features grey segments on a black background.
The Speedmaster Skywalker X-33 was designed with the exacting demands of astronauts, pilots and people who can appreciate its impressive variety of functions. In fact, The European Space Agency (ESA) has approved this remarkable timepiece for inclusion in all of its missions. We are proud of our association with one of the world's most impressive scientific organizations.
"Tested and approved by the European Space Agency for inclusion in its missions."
The OMEGA Speedmaster Skywalker X-33 is powered by the multi-functional quartz chronograph movement, OMEGA calibre 5619, with a thermo-compensated integrated circuit. The new movement was developed under an ESA patent licence based on an invention by ESA astronaut Jean-François Clervoy.
