    Isn't it strange that Omega....

    don't bother putting the correct logo on a lot of their watch dials?
    Why is that?

    The symbol Ω

    Its actually the other way round, The Omega symbol they use on their boxes and whatever else they produce uses the wrong one,I.E with upturned feet (happy feet).

    The one on the watch is actually the correct symbol.

    The Omega watches logo has happy feet, regardless of the way that the symbol is generally written (though I believe it is written differently by different cultures).
    Regardless, I didn't specify which was the error (though yes, I believe that happy feet is actually correct) and the fact is that all watches don't match with regards the company logo.

    Say whaaaaaa? A company has stylized a pre-existing symbol and used it as a logo?

    My best guess is the happy feet are too fine to produce perfectly. They prob have tried and it is too fragile to handle with care especially when mass produce it. That is why the choose smooth edge feet for their own insurance and keep most customer happy.

    It is just a different font type. You can have it for Greek alphabet the same way you have it for Roman alphabet (TNR, Sans Serif, Arial, Gothic, etc). Which font they use, is a designer choice.
