Having said that Omega wanted to revisit the watches incorporate perhaps a different design

I don't know if you've noticed, but the dial has a smiley face on it. The two subdials are the eyes and the date window is the mouth. This was no doubt an intentional move. How else can you explain the extremely expanded date omega Constellation replica. We've complained in the past about "open" date windows that show three date numerals at a time. How about seven date numerals at a time?!

Yes, the Omega probably has the largest open date display I've seen... that isn't one of those "skeletonized" date displays where you can see the entire disc. The dial is no doubt strange for sure. The addition of the happy face helps a bit, but it is still... avant garde to say the least.

There is also the matter of the alarm function. The large red arrow hand on the dial is used to set the alarm. You move it to the hour you want it to go off, and then it will. You turn the alarm on and off with the red-wrapped pusher panerai luminor replica at 8 o'clock on the case. The alarm beeps enough, but as is the case with most quartz watches, the beep is going to be mostly audible indoors or in other quiet environments, not on boats. In fact, from a design perspective there is so much that could have been done with this dial to make it cleaner, and still be a really good regatta timer. It all works of course, but it is hard to feel that the dial design is 100% refined.

As i said, I give the Omega watch high marks for the case, in terms of design and comfort. The dial, while functional, prevents the piece from living up to its full potential. The watch could have been much prettier, and more timeless. Though what we know from Tag Heuer Link replica they prefer to do things a bit differently, and we have to respect that as they aren't trying to gouge anyone when it comes to price.

Having said that, I think if Omega wanted to revisit the case and incorporate perhaps a different movement or dial design, they could extract a whole lot more life out of it. Perhaps they will do that, there is nothing stopping them from doing so. As it is, the Omega is nevertheless an interesting watch, with utility for some people.
