    It seems to me that at this point we have a draw between white and slate in terms of total numbers of votes, with white winning for the number of No.1 votes.

    I wouldn't like white to be the winner, as the color combination would be too comparable to this one:

    White and slate seem to shoulder to shoulder. Given the small difference in vote can we consider a final vote with the 2 finalists to allow those who have not opted for these 2 colors can make their choice?

    "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be slate: and there was slate"

    As bad as it looks to me, a vote is a vote. If white wins, then it's white. If it's considered a draw, then let's re-vote for the finalists. In any case, the God in this instance is Arizone. Let's pray to get a divine sign.

    On the other hand, if it's too comparable to that one, it would be difficult to make the argument that the design was insufficiently Russian.

    True, though that one has a submarine and a red star. If the consensus ends up being blue and white then we need something similarly unusual and special to compensate

    Yes and no...we need something special, but we still need at least 100 more buyers.
    Special, not seen before and custom made might be cool, but a +200$ price tag will make this project vaporware.

    Therein lies the difficulty - distinctive enough to be interesting but still mainstream enough to get sufficient support.

    That said, the amphibia project a couple of years back ended up with a very distinctive design that still met MOQ. So I’m sure we will get there.

    I'm not being Mr. Negative, I'm just trying to make sure this project gets off the ground...there's a limit for time, one for numbers and one for cost.
    Any one of those too out of whack, and the watch is just a nice dream.

    Very true. And I'm not arguing here for something like a picture of Yuri Gagarin planting a flag on top of Mt Elbrus. Just for it not being too...conservative. I think that's the general concern about the progressive narrowing of choices if we proceed further down this route. That's why I was speculating about the feasibility of looking at complete packages of design elements - that encourages a bit more risk-taking in developing the ideas.

    Have you seen the thread in the Russian forum on a WUS project amphibia dial? They've been developing mockups based around complete color palettes, and while they may not get to MOQ for them (I certainly hope they do) they have some beautiful designs
