Commander Peggy Whitson onboard ISS wearing an Omega X-33



X-33 is part of the standard equipment for US and Russian astronauts on shuttle and space station.

Thank you Mr Symtech :thumbup1:

With the X-33 being used by astronauts from several space agencies, it would be interesting to discover how many Speedies altogether have been launched into space.

Anyone care to make this a mini project?


Y'all be well pals

I posted the picture late last night and I forgot to specify that the picture's source is Omega website, news section.

I wish I would have taken the picture myself :)

Another thing that comes to mind about the standard equipment, do they get a watch when they have a mission assigned to them or do they keep the watch for the duration of their work with NASA? If it's only for the missions, that make a smaller amount of watches in circulation.

Omega is still one of the few to fly that high. :thumbup:

From my understanding, Omega sells the X-33 at a very reduced cost, so to a huge organisation like NASA the cost would be pocket change in comparison to it's entire budget. So I would imagine they don't keep a small handful in circulation for the astronauts are on a mission.
