Why, oh why?

Can someone explain how Omega went from this functional and classy looking  Seamaster GMT

to this monstrosity?

Couple of words what is wrong. GMT watch has a second hour hand, that travels around dial once in a 24 hours. This is useful for travellers, because of 24h hand can show hometime and regular hour hand will show local time. GMT functionality is very useful and watch manufacturers usually don’t try to hide 24h scale.

Even previous generation Seamaster GMT had 24h bezel.

Why, oh why did they decided to almost completely hide 24h scale, thus rendering otherwise beautiful watch useless as a traveler watch?
