We might be overthinking things at this stage. In terms of design we have only locked down the azure dial so far, and will shortly also have the bezel color. Even if it’s white, which I hope it’s not, there’s still plenty of options from those two choices that get us to a great watch. It may be worth though thinking about how we sort through those options, whether we look at them sequentially or try to assemble some thematic concepts to compare
Reflecting on this - this is also a good argument against a white bezel. If the hands have lume then they will be white in daylight. So the color scheme basically defaults to blue and white with a bit of red script here and there. That feels too conservative to be a Russian tool watch
Having only just bought the project Vostok Compressor remake, I personally wouldn't want another piece with that case so soon. To the best of my knowledge no project watch has yet utilised the K34? The K34 case is one of the main features which attracted me to this project, and I have assumed that this feature was settled. Alas, if the project were to go in the direction of the Compressor, I would have to pull out. It may be that the Compressor case might attract more people? If so, I will wish the project good luck and go in peace... But I suggest if enough people are for it then it goes to a vote...

Regardless, you are forgetting the K-34 case is based on the classic brass '34' Komandirskie case, which is why I consider it excellent for a Russian mountaineering watch.
But no mather what, I really like what you are doing for the project! No question about that.
I think we already have voted about the style and model.
Compressor case is absolutely new direction. I also have a Vostok's Compressor reissue, and wouldn't go for another.
Is anyone keeping track of where we stand on the bezel color poll? Is a winner emerging?
