    I redrew this sketch in color. This dial is suitable for our equipment, we can make it in short time, if here will be interest for it. By the way, this module can work both in English and in Russian.
    Love your design.

    Many thanks Surok, i have one Electronika 55b, it's nearly the same as Electronika 55?

    I would like one a little bit different, but with the taste of old soviet watches.

    Gotta get some batteries for them all (the cool melodies are fun, but they kill the batteries!), this thread has motivated me to that this weekend.

    The "B" means waterproof, like W on Casios...yes the module is the same.

    After reading this thread I became nostalgic and I decided to buy on ebay a pair of vintage Elektronikas, one is a 55b:



    I like the funky design and the bright colour but Nikolaj stated they are no interested in reissuing the old plastic case models.




    This is an older Soviet 53B with an interesting grid dial, all these "waterproof" models are somewhat interesting from a construction point of view as the module appears to be installed from the front, the back is completely sealed:



    This is a good way to achieve water resistance IMO, a simple round gasket around the module and it's done:

    I see you have an Integral 01 (even if it's called in another way), can you tell us anything about it? In particular stopwatch and countdown are limited to 1h?

    And how is the strap of the 53V? Comfortable?

    Can't decide which of the new ones I will but bit Surok55 can expect a pm from me soon. Also, you can count me in if we're doing a WUS project.

    I'll have to try the stopwatch when I get a new battery in that one, I believe that one had a full backlight (like a modern Casio) as opposed to a simple LED like the others, the signals and alarms on it were very loud as well.
    And how is the strap of the 53V? Comfortable?
    That watch is so light you won't even notice it on your wrist, the plastic strap is not the best quality nor is it as comfortable as the Resin strap on a Casio F91W, but does the job and seems to be made of harder plastic which may make it last longer than the softer Casio resin straps which are known to disintegrate after a few years. Again it's so light that you won't even think about it once you get it on.
