Perhaps a 2nd Gen version.
I had the 1st Gen.

Very cool watch, made for geeks. :ugeek:

There have been rumors past 1-2yr about a new updated version.
Also Omega just trademarked the "Spacemaster" name which many believe will be the replacement for X33.
Omega's patent update on the old Flightmaster case with the ana/digi works is sounding like the new kid on the block to take over where the X33 left off.
