Just launched the Omega Spacemaster Z-33 watch, its powered by a new multifunction thermo-compensated quartz movement – calibre 5666.
Like their X-33 speedmaster model it combines analog and digital displays. The digital display provides self-programmable professional pilot functions as well as date, UTC and two time zones, also a chronograph function and a countdown timer.
The brushed, polished and sandblasted case is built from grade 5 titanium and features a “double wall” construction which acts as a resonance chamber to amplify the alarm sound.
Transreflective LCD Technology guarantees readability under any lighting conditions. This technology not only cleverly adjusts the luminosity of the digital display so it can easily be read during night flights, direct sunlight or when wearing polarized glasses but it also saves battery power.
Water resistant to 30m it comes on either a rubber or leather strap.
