THE SPEEDMASTER HB-SIA GMT:
THE SUN WILL SHOW US THE WAY!

The Solar Impulse project captured the world’s imagination with its ambitious aim of flying around the Earth in a plane powered only by the sun’s energy. The prototype plane, referred to by its registration number, HB-SIA, demonstrated convincingly that the plane’s innovative technology and the team’s vision were equal to the challenges of a round-the-world journey.

“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

The OMEGA Speedmaster HB-SIA GMT takes inspiration from the design and materials of the Solar Impulse prototype. The 44.25 mm case is crafted from titanium and the caseback is distinguished by a colourful, etched Solar Impulse patch. The dial is made of black carbon fibre similar to the HB-SIA’s composite covering. A central GMT hand, which completes one rotation in 24 hours, can be used to read a second time zone.

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.

A TIMELESS
TITANIUM BRACELET

The Speedmaster HB-SIA GMT is also offered with a matching titanium bracelet. Titanium’s light weight allows optimal wearer comfort and its strength makes it particularly resistant to corrosion.
