Omega X-33 watch lovers will rejoice to know that for 2014, Omega is releasing a brand new version of the X-33 called the Omega Speedmaster Skywalker X-33. You can now insert relevant Luke Skywalker and other related Star Wars references. This is an interesting move as just two years ago in 2012 Omega released what was supposed to be the modern X-33 with the Speedmaster Z-33 (reviewed here). Nevertheless, the cult favorite X-33 is back with a new and updated model.
In the 1960s, Seiko released its first Astron-named watch that was both legendendary and infamous in the watch world. While a few other companies were working on quartz movement technology, the Seiko Astron was the first commercially released quartz watch (something that was wonderful to the industry, though highly disruptive to traditional mechanical watchmakers). A few years ago, Seiko released a modern version of the first Astron watch as a limited edition, but the name was quickly adopted for a new generation of innovative timepieces with the 2012 Astron. Technically, this new watch is just called "Astron," which in my opinion, is confusing. I feel that a better option would be to call it the Astron GPS, or something similar to help distinguish it.
