    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?

    Or maybe silver color like hours? with embossed letters?

    Some random thoughts:
    • I'm fine with the zero instead of the 12.
    • A darker red for the Эльбрус might work better with the lighter blue dial. Strictly in terms of legibility, yellow would be better than red, but this is a Russian watch, not a Swedish or Ukrainian one.
    • I'd rather see the ЧЧЗ logo in the usual brand location, with the Эльбрус logo below, where the АВТОПОДЗАВОД 31 КАМЕНЬ is currently shown.
    • The АВТОПОДЗАВОД 31 КАМЕНЬ would look better in a non-serif font.

    1) Personally, I think it would look better without Автоподзавод. Looong, rather ugly neologism, imho, and best left hidden in technical literature, or WIS fora...
    I even prefer ПЫЛЕВЛАГОЗАЩИЩЕННЫЕ (dust + moisture protected) if it’s for the kick of exoticism, so cool on old casebacks
    Seriously, we can assume since the 70’s it has some sort of Incabloc, rubies, springs. Today you specify only if it’s not automatic, or generally what is original. Or specific, like the depth rating.
    Imho, even those are best left around the back lid. The design is already busy with brand, model, and what appears like 5 hands with that double one!

    2) Technically, I believe it’s 32 for the 2426 calibre.

    3) Gramatically, Камня. 32 камня. If 1 камень — ok-Аmen.

    Sorry for the nitpicking, but I have enough experience in editing to know how easy it is to let through such typos, until you don’t pay attention any more. Collectors usually like such goofy magazine covers, or post stamps, or manufactured objects: short runs, quickly retired from the market.

    Just want to mention again I'd like attention focused on the bezel design so we can vote on that next. I will spend some time reviewing and preparing new choices to pick from.

    These are lifted straight from Vostok's own designs. I'd trust them above all others, but which information to include on the dial is certainly up for debate.

    Good catch!

    I'm aware of color clashing and will try to make appropriate adjustments when we get to it.

    For the bezel the double ladder is essential if you want to make a real tool watch: compass + GMT. it remains legible. It would be a shame indeed to have a 24 hour hand and not to offer the GMT function. The red triangle with the white mark on the inside is very visible and I like it so for me the design of the bezel n ° 3 is my favorite

    And you are perfectly right !
    So, if you double-check the oddities of Russian plural:
    1 камень, 2 камня
    31 камень, 32 камня.

    ;)

    So I have gone ahead and opened another vote here: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f911/0...s-4763425.html
    I floundered at the thought of how opened ended the design of the bezel still is. This will help narrow it down.

    Re: General Discussion Thread for the 2018 Russian forum project

    Now that many here seem to like the double scale bezel, here is one of my favorites — to the point I almost forgive it to be 45mm wide.
    And please excuse if it's from a "Dalny-Vostok" i.e. (extreme-)Orient.

    The dark/light 24h scale differentiates day and night, as well as providing fast location of E and W. W an E.

    It has its flaw, too, which the Elbrus will avoid: here the 72 (!) clicks bidirectional bezel seems like a good idea but, having clicks, it can't stop on GMT 1/2 hr zones (India, central Australia, Newfoundland, etc...).

    I like the idea of a dark/light 24hr section (if it is chosen), it may also have the benefit of pleasing those who preferred the lighter bezel options.

    Maybe a light grey/silver?

    Cheers,

    Chris.
