    Thatís a good question, worth asking Dmitry... What do you think? Maybe you already have a technical reason?

    As for the other points, theyíre duly taken.
    Have a good day, too!

    Hi PanKorop, I do not have a technical reason for the plexi being not possible on the K34 actually. I figured that Vostoks plexi`s now used in Amphibia`s and Komandirskies would not have the right fit for the K34`s case, and that cutting a sapphire would be an easier process than molding a newly sized acrylic lens. Indeed maybe we should ask Dmitry because this option would even be a better choise than sapphire IMHO.

    Option 3 on the top is my favourite. Not keen on swapping the 12 for a zero, though maybe it will grow on me. Definitely think the factory logo should be at the top, either Vostok В logo or ЧЧЗ with Elbrus at the bottom.

    If we went with the full Восток logo would they be able to set it on the dial like the numbers rather than print it?

    Re: General Discussion Thread for the 2018 Russian forum project

    I quite like the zero but with this design either that or 12 would work

    The red accents work better than the orange/yellow/green.

    Where I’m conflicted is the bezel markings. A functional compass ideally needs the degrees. But I prefer the look of the single ring of markings rather than the double rings.

    It’s good that the bezel color vote ended the way it did - ie that slate won clearly, it didn’t look like splitting white and cream divided the vote such that slate won

    Re: General Discussion Thread for the 2018 Russian forum project

    For bezel design I like the busy style (the sign of a really useful functional tool watch), and top row 2nd from left (number 2) is my favourite. I definitely prefer the red colour of writing to the others on offer. My preference for the factory logo would be for the old 443 to pay homage, rather than the modern Boctok logo, and if it is to be that then at the top of the dial somewhere. If the logo is to remain Boctok, then it's good where it is now. I still like the thought of the thicker hands as originally shown but could easilly be persuaded otherwise. Just my thoughts...

    My preference pretty much same as Geoff!
    If there is to be a nod at the east Boctock logo,why not just use the B style from the Boctock
    factory logo on the red B denoting east,because the full logo at the 3o'clock position just looks dumb.
    Larger more stylish hands with maybe a sun/arrow meatball 24h hand
    Also no other colours of text apart from white/silver,red or black,as we dont want a clown watch!

    I really like the idea of the Vostok factory B denoting east on the bezel!!!

    Oh, and I have to say that I must agree with my good friend from Scotland Joe, that it would be a great shame if this presently elegant and serious design were to take on the feel of a Hawaiian shirt due to any over indulging in the different spectrum of colour mother nature has been generous enough to bestow upon us...
