One of Omega’s many sponsorships and cooperation projects is as an official timekeeper of the ETNZ Sailing Team. At the 35th US Cup in June 2017, Swiss watchmakers announced several limited edition watches, including the X-33 Regatta ETNZ, an Omega speed skating professional. Compared to Omega’s other series, we haven’t discussed this interesting but rare digital, quartz-driven Omega Replica Watches family for some time.
The Omega Speedmaster Skywalker X-33 was released in the 1990s. This shows that Omega was not trapped by their highly sophisticated astronaut equipment in the 1969 Omega Speedmaster Master Robotic Watch. But just like Breitling’s professional watch series, the Omega Speedmaster X-33 also has a hybrid analog-digital display function that is also convincingly used for professional aviation purposes. It is still a peripheral branch of the Speedmaster series and is especially appreciated by watch enthusiasts and brand lovers.
However, as demonstrated by the Omega Speedmaster X-33 Regatta ETNZ Limited Edition Watch, there is no reason why it should be used only in the aviation and aerospace industries. I think it’s worth mentioning that members of the sailing team wore the Omega Replica Speedmaster X-33 Regatta ETNZ while on board as it did increase the practicality and durability of the watch (in addition to the waterproof function). If you don’t follow the regatta racing, it’s unclear whether some of the physical rigors involve a match between people or watch one of these blood vessels, seeing Ariel’s report (video) after being tied to a catamaran and splashing a lot of Bremont watches and the Oracle US team.
The Omega Speedmaster X-33 Regatta ETNZ limited edition nylon fabric has a 45mm width, Tier 2 titanium, and waterproof 30m. This may cause some watch enthusiasts to blink, because this is basically the lowest waterproof rating for any modern watch, and this watch is designed to be related to water sports. Ideally, the ship should stay on the water, yes, but the 30-meter water resistance means completely static water with a water pressure of less than 30 meters. We usually advise you not to do anything more wet than washing your hands with a 30-meter waterproof watch—mostly dress watches. Of course, with a bunch of buttons and locations, the entry of water has become a concern for Omega’s Speedmaster X-33 Regatta. It looks like they are going to actually use it – but even most g-impacts have 2 meters. Water resistance.
The internal movement of the quartz 5620 enhances the analog three-hand timing, adds a countdown timer for the regatta game, and a large number of digital displays. If you don’t know, the countdown time is important for yacht racing, and the reason why it often appears on such watches is that the boat will have a start (5 minutes) before crossing the starting line, so they need to time very carefully . The digital function can display three time zones, timers, timers, (permanent) calendar information, and two alarms. I will continue to say that negative LCDs are only inferior to positive LCDs and can only be regarded as sacrifices for aesthetic readability. The regatta countdown timer is activated by the red button at 9 o’clock and triggers a series of alarms through a recognizable ring tone (for me it sounds stressful).
Some differences with the Skywalker X-33 in the Fake Omega Watches Speedmaster X-33 Regatta ETNZ Limited Edition Watch (hand-operated here), including ETNZ’s design tips, mentioned above specifically for racing boats Function, of course, Skywalker’s name has also been omitted. The color is the color of the New Zealand flag. The 9 o’clock blue ring seems to refer to the simulated sub-dial, which is new and cool. I happen to think that the more colorful X-33 way, as we see here in the Skywalker X-33 sun pulse watch, makes it look more modern and interesting.
We don’t have a caseback picture yet, but Cheap Omega Replica Watches tells us that it was “printed with the logo of the UAE New Zealand team, the 35th Copa America engraved with the Challenger, the ‘X-33 Regatta’, and Limited edition bi-directional rotating frame, made of ceramic titanium hybrid material (must be very light), including the light star at the “compass point” instead of the aviation (stylized spacecraft?) K-track?) Symbol of the Skywalker. Omega said that these stars represent the South Cross on the New Zealand flag, and we can assume that in addition to the backlight used for digital display, there will be lume on the hand and index, and the 12 o’clock star on the border.
There are of course many potential luxury watch customers in the yachting industry, so every year we see a variety of sponsorships and limited editions of different watch brands. In my opinion, this is a rather cool one. It is because of the watch itself. The Omega Speedmaster X-33 Regatta ETNZ limited edition watch (at a natural price of 2017 pieces) sells for $5,900.
