    You have said it better than me, but I agree with this entirely. This might not be a popular opinion but the red of that logo is not quite what had in mind, just in close proximity to the blue of the dial. But I have been surprised throughout this process so far so I could come around to it. Its exciting seeing the creation of this in stages....

    I'm with Geoff on the busy tool watch look, to have the bezel perform 2 functions would be a great addition. I like number 3 but would be equally happy with 2 (or 1 and 4 if I'm honest). Not convinced by the other colours though.

    The original logo design is also preferable to me, as is the zero at the 12'oclock position. I like the thinner hands but would be fine with the originals

    Whatever decisions are made regarding the watch, I am very happy to be involved being a relative newcomer around these parts and appreciate all the effort so far.

    Chris.

    To add to my previous comment, I like the addition of the sub-second markers but think the seconds hand is too prominent. Maybe a slightly slimmer design and beef up the compass hand again?

    Yup, usually it’s not the diagonal sajen (foot to arm) but the armspread — standard sajen, very close to the 6ft fathom.

    I love double scales, thanks Arizone for these proposals taking into account remarks about this

    my choice would be rather on the n ° 3.
    For the markings I preferred the originals: 443 at the top and Elbrus at the bottom of the dial. Bostock at 3 o'clock why not; I preferred the larger original hands. I find that the font used for Elbrus is too round too distant of the style of hourly indexes, i prefer the font N°4. For the colors of the markings the red and white are very suitable

    For the hand of seconds the ending arrow seems to me unsuitable, the real arrow is the compass, the hand of the 24 hours

    I like the busier bezel, red triangle @ 0, white triangle at 6.

    NB if a multi-colours-of-the-spectrum 24H dial showed up with 12 @ bottom I'd vote for that and happily go colour blind.

    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!
    Agree with most. Even with my east logo turning from just “silly” (which I claim being!) to plain dumb; I dread what the next step will be in this joecoolar escalation

    So, “most” I say, the exception being ”maybe a sun/arrow meatball 24h hand”!
    C’mon, isn’t the project basic intent about a compass needle instead of a 24h hand?
    Maybe I don’t get your idea, as I understand quickly if slowly instructed — then please do elaborate.

    Ditto. It’s true this bright red on bright blue make my eyes screech and my teeth water, just like when the grammar school teacher would draw with day-glo red chalk on that green board...
    For a small accent, it may be ok, but for the full Elbrus logo, it could use a white cartouche (background reserve), or at least outlined letters.
    Maybe gold instead of red?

    Interesting thoughts, I could be swayed...

    The red writing certainly looked fine to me on the rich dark blue dial surrounded by bronze, but you might have a point regarding the lighter blue dial...
