    The trick is the Elbrus has no date, ok? So you’re free to rotate the bezel with the daylight times up, with South at top. Much more convenient to use as a solar compass this way, too!

    It would be interesting to think of a drawing (a stylized symbol) for the caseback that explains (or better reminders to everyone, even those with short memory like me) as the watch can be used as a compass.

    I know, I'm running too much but what do you think?

    Tough choice for the Bezel. I´d like to see a 3 colored one for comparison. Slate Outside, Bright for the Day-Portion and a lighter Slate for the Night-Portion.
    Either way, the Night-Day colored ones are all great.

    I would be happy with any of those but the first really jumps out, it would look fantastic with matching bright white lume on the hands and hour pips.

    No 2 is best but I think a two time bezel is making it look a bit too busy.

    This^^^^^. So much. I don't know why, but the addition of the day/night contrast has taken the design of this Watch to a whole other level for me.

    With you, Mario, yet the first idea I read here about the caseback was a drawing of the twin peaks of Elbrus. I still like it as a direct reminder of the original inspiration — them Seiko mountaineering series. Now this project looks so much more achieved than the Fuji climber one! Way beyond an umpteenth homage, yet I still like the wink. So, without a reminder on the back, maybe the front design, with its unmissable, intriguing compass needle is enough of an incentive? Else you (or another) come up with a sketch which would combine the twin Elbrus peaks and a compass, and this still graphic enough — simple and uncrowded — to be stamped/minted on the caseback, of course. And pleeease no cheap shallow laser etching!

    This said, I’m still working on a short tutorial which would remind, strongly enough to remain “sticky” in the shortest memories , how to use a solar compass. This without making a 180º or +/- 30º bearing error Cut the laugh: I’ve seen it. Btw, iPhones do no better, if close to a steel mass... With the Elbrus, the 24h hand/compass-needle fortunately helps a lot. Now, streamlining such a tutorial enough to put it on a beautiful caseback? A challenge beyond my writing skills...
