    Astronaut Mark Kelly, and my Omega X-33

    I took my X-33 Skywalker out for one final trip before I send it to a new home, and Astronaut Mark Kelly was the keynote speaker at a conference event.

    He was wearing a Navtimer 1 GMT 48. So I asked for a watch geek photo with him. He said, “you’ve got the Omega.” Of course, his journey put him with some awesome timepieces.

    He’s a real hero and an inspiration, as is his wife Gabby. Thanks to them and those like them, we enjoy our freedom. Cheers to the heroes.

    He been wearing older X33 (first model) at ISS. Watch you took photo was his ground watch.
    X-33 is de facto issued ISS watch but if you like you can take your own watch.

    later he could of got newer model.
    It should be special!
