Image revised based on your comments!

Based on the comments so far, nobody seems to find the current Pro inadequate. I do like the current Pro a lot - that's what I own. But the bolder look of the GMT/150th appeals to many people too. Sounds like Omega should keep both designs and use them on different Seamaster variations.

To be a little more fair (especially after I saw the image on a different monitor) I've given the current Pro a little more size on the round and triangular markers and added the thin traces on the sides of the hour and minute hands.

If you haven't noticed, this is a computer generated image. The 'brightness' of the glow is identical on each dial illustration. So any apparent difference in brightness is because of the difference in size of the markers. That's exactly how the difference would appear in the dark.
