    That does look good. And the hour indicators they use on those models do have a slight Russian flavor to them

    and they had a GMT function!

    in addition to the 24h index on the mobile bezel would make a first adjustment of the solar time before determining the south .. it is more convenient?
    Thanks for the research and recap. That blue one is a winner, as a tool watch. And it’s blue in the same spirit as the Elbruz project, too!
    You’re right: one can move the 24 hour scale, if selecting only the odd-numbered. There go my СЗ, ЮВ etc. but it makes a lot of sense.

    Talking of cyrillic, it seems there is a typo in the projected dial. Smack in the middle: exactly where the best technical editors will miss one.

    The mount Elbrus goes in Russian with a soft sign, not the hard one, so one should read
    Эльбрус
    not Элъбрус

    Well, I did write Elbruz a few times here, so do as I say, not as I do 😕

    What about my suggestion of spelling out the East marker, expanding the В to Восток?

    Re: General Discussion Thread for the 2018 Russian forum project

    Love the discussion going on. I do not have a chance to reply to everything just now but do know I'm reading and considering everything. It's a slow process. The current bezel was mostly inspired by the Vostok wrist compasses, which includes the degrees and all four directions indicated in red. I've briefly played with other designs like large triangles but nothing coherent enough to show off yet. Do know we have a slightly wider bezel than the recent Alpinist models, but fitting two scales simultaneously will still be a bit tricky.

    I should have the bezel color vote up later, which means markings will probably be considered next. Keep it up.

    Thank you so much for pointing this out! I ignorantly copy paste from elsewhere so I'll see that this gets into the final design.

    Wow! The worst is it appears to be authentic, and the most limited series ever (2 + 1!):
    https://perezcope.com/2018/02/15/pam-127-the-origins-of-the-fiddy/

    Now, being an iconoclast, I wouldn’t mind a Soviet True Dive watch by Poztok ( Поцток ) with a slightly tweaked aqualung silhouette. I doubt D. Buyalov would agree, but Mr Favinov maybe?

    (Poz, putz, potz is familiar to NYC natives, but even more common in Odessa slang, meaning the same as the Italian above)
