that a new? updated movement will be made for the X-34.....but many aren't holding their breath until they see it....

The original 1666 caliber dates back to the early 1980s with a dress model containing the 1666 quartz mvt. I can imagine Omega tweaking and updating it. All the other tested multifunctions would remain the same, as would the case design IMO, saving Omega more research costs. Likely a few cosmetic changes would be applied though.

Meanwhile, that British entrepeneur fellow (Brandon?) who had started his own VIRGIN commercial airplane company is now in the news about commercial space travel flights! This idea is hinted in your link! For far thinking guys, the moon could likely be the target planet for future colonization.

An X-34 watch, if materialized and produced by Omega, would likely retail around $3600usd, one poster thought. The original X-33 Gen1 retailed for $2600usd in 1998.

So, Dave, start saving for an X-33!! I am tracking used ones haha! There are now 3 on the Japan auctions: Gen1 and a Gen2 model......
