Omega Military Purchase Program is Still Active

I was recently able to confirm that the Omega Military Purchase Program for the Speedmaster X-33 remains active.  After months of wondering if the program had perhaps been canceled, thanks to a helpful contributor I finally managed to get some updated info about Omega’s military purchase program and was able to personally confirm the details.  The program was apparently briefly suspended while it was reviewed and overhauled, and production is expected to resume in as little as two weeks.

Omega asked me not to publish pricing data as it still hadn’t been finalized, but it seems that the prices will rise substantially over figures that were previously published on the web.  Although unfortunate for potential buyers, pricing under the program had not changed since the X-33 was introduced in 1998 and an increase was perhaps overdue.  The pricing remains a substantial discount over the former retail price, and is still less than that of comparable military purchase programs from Breitling etc.

Some notes:

  • Since each X-33 is made to order with a custom caseback, there is still an expected 3-6 month lead time.
  • At this time only the X-33 is available under the program.
  • The program (or this version at least) is conducted through Swatch Group USA and is only available to members serving in the US Armed Forces.  Those serving in the military forces of other countries should contact Omega directly to see if their national distributor offers a similar program.
  • I do have the contact information, but to ensure that I only give the information to authorized parties I still require a .mil email address.  And it’s just as well that I do, as Omega now requires the same.  Funny how that works sometimes. :)

Also, I still recommend that buyers under the program spring for the the titanium bracelet even if they intend to wear it on a strap.  The Ti bracelet alone retails for about $1000 by itself (yes, really) if buyers decide they want it later, and having it adds substantially to resale value once the obligatory period is over.


My info is several years old now and I have no idea if it is still relevant or if the program is still active. Last time I got the info though by calling Swatch Group USA’s 800-number, it just took a few tries before I got to someone who knew about the program and could direct me to someone helpful. Ask for the special sales department and just be polite and persistent. :)


It’s now been more than six years since this was first published and I NO LONGER HAVE UP TO DATE INFORMATION or even know if the program remains active. Call SWATCH GROUP Swatch Group USA at (201) 271-1400. PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME FOR INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROGRAM.

  5. Dan says

    Very interested. Please email me. I will give you my mil. address once you contact me. I obviously don’t want to post my mil. account here for reasons of OpSec. Thanks!

  6. Dan says

    Apparently it’s no OpSec. issue, so, I’ve added my military email in the line below (“Email.”). I look forward to hearing about this wonderful program and getting to play with this wonderful piece (so to speak).


    • Rrryan says

      Guys, I get many requests and to make it easier on me I ask qualified parties interested Omega military sales program to use the contact form to email me and supply a .mil email address.

  7. Dan says

    I spoke with the rep. the other day. She said the new watch will cost more (about 1400-1600) but will be a totally new movement. NASA apparently doesn’t even have the watch. They’re taking orders in March, but watches won’t be available till August :(

  8. Jay says

    Any update on these watches? I got one email from the lady back in February saying the program was starting back up in March, but then nothing. Anyone having any luck getting in contact with them?

  9. Martin Weaver says

  29. Dustin says

    I’ve sent a few emails to Omega with no luck. Can you send the contact information to my included address? Thanks.

    • Rrryan says

      I’ve no idea the information I have is still current. I’ve had the best luck by calling Swatch Group USA at (201) 271-1400 and being polite and persistent. It’s a small niche program that’s apart from regular sales channels and if you’re unlucky you might have to call a few times before you get routed to the right office.

  30. Won Lim says

    hi thank you for sharing this great information. Could I get more info on how to order this military purchase program.

    Thank you
