Omega Spacemaster Z-33 Watch Review

How Omega Watches Uses Technology to Strengthen Its Brand
OMEGA watches have a nuance and legacy that has long gone unmatched. Adding to their allure and a history of unique time pieces is the Spacemaster Z-33.
The Omega Speedmaster Spacemaster Z-33 watch is the thematic follow-up to the famed Omega X-33 pilot watch that we recently discussed again as it was worn (and loved) by Astronaut Chris Hadfield (now apparently retired). The X-33 was originally released in 1998, mostly intended toward the professional and active enthusiast market as a sort of Omega answer to the Breitling Aerospace.
The Spacemaster Z-33 is a member of the Speedmaster family. Given that the Speedmaster genre’s nickname is “the Moon Watch”, made famous by Neil Armstrong’s wearing his Speedmaster in space, maybe a Speedmaster that looks like it belongs on the moon is appropriate for the repertoire and aptly named Spacemaster.
Titanium is a welcomed upgrade, and the Z-33’s brushed, grade 5 titanium case is breath taking. The minimalist sunburst pattern makes an elegant statement, and given the 43mm size, the weight reducing titanium makes the Z-33 seem a blithe companion; that is until you glance at your wrist and see the colossus. Though you will never forget the Z-33’s presence, its light weight keeps your arm from turning into an anchor. Just be careful around the doorframes. The watch’s size aids its flight computer functionality, but this blessing might also be its bane.
In the confines of a cockpit with a pilot reaching for flight maps and controls, this watch is going to take a pounding. Not to worry: the Z-33 is up to the task. The only lasting concern is for a Helo (USN) or helicopter pilot’s operation of the collective pitch control on the left side of the seat, which will press the watch into tight quarters. In an aircraft, this watch will snag and bump, but it will equally continue to look gorgeous. It might even survive a nuclear blast or looks like it could; hyperbole aside, this is a tough watch.
Few people are going to need the functionality of the Z-33, but a lot are going to appreciate it. If you want a very cool high-end quartz watch in your collection then a Breitling Aerospace or Omega Z-33 is an excellent choice. Both offer the same basic functionality, though with its more modern approach and unique case, the Z-33 has the slight edge between the two.
