I have listed below the movements available from Vostok and their features that will be considered for this project. I would like to have this vote open for one week.
You must have registered for the project in order to vote!
Please vote by posting directly in this thread. This is a Single Transferable Vote (STV) system where you may vote for as many movement candidates as you like and list them in order of preference. If your preferred candidate is eliminated, your single vote will move to your next preferred candidate, and so on. Last, please state your preference of movement with or without date function.
Please read and consider the following points before you cast your votes:
- Images are only for illustrative purposes of each movement, and are not for particular design suggestions.
- Vostok movements do not feature a true quick-set date feature, and must be moved between 9pm and 12am repeatedly instead to set.
- Vostok 24 hour functions and day/night indicators are not true GMT features and cannot be set independently of the 12 hour hand. A 24-hour marked bezel will be required to read a second timezone if desired but that will depend on future votes regarding the bezel's design.
- In prior discussions the 24 hour hand was presented as a dedicated solar compass hand along with a compass bezel as a possible design choice, similar to older Alpinist designs, and hearkening back to Vostok's magnetic wrist compasses. Whether to pursue this design later will depend on the choice of a movement with a 24 hour hand, if not then other new designs will be discussed and voted on.
