    And pleeease no cheap shallow laser etching!
    Even with great sadness and regret I must tell you two bad news:

    1) my name is not Mario (which is still a very common name here in Italy) but Daniele;
    2) I do not have any graphic skills to turn the idea into a concrete and aesthetically pleasing design.

    I hope I have not ruined your day and wait for your tutorial impatiently.
    I have already warned my tattoo artist who will engrave it on my wrist in case we could not find a practical solution for the caseback

    Daniele, I am confusedly sad, or vice-versa!
    I think I got mixed up as a ratatouille niçoise by a nearby post from Mariomart. Or maybe it’s because I’m from France, where many believe if an Italian is not Luigi, then it must be Mario. We also practice rudeness as a national sport. So don’t you worry: you couldn’t possibly ruin my day

    When you’ll get your idea properly engraved by your tattoo artist (as he must have the required design skills!), will you please post a photograph of it in the WRUW thread?
    May I dare to suggest you also get the final dial of the Elbrus tattoed full-color on the opposite side of the wrist? Which, depends what side you favour not to scratch.

    ps: ok, I’ll try and make the tutorial short. So you save on the ink — it’s a difficult time.

    pps: ethnically prejudiced Frenchies will say “hey, don’t get me wrong, nothing against them: I have a (insert a minority offensive nickname here) friend, and he’s a rather decent person”. Well I have a full three Italian dear friends: one is Guzzi Dodicento from Mandello del Lario, the others being the siblings Rampone and Cazzani Baritone from Quarna Sotto on another lake (Orta)

    I will certainly do it as soon as it is done, I am currently waiting for other elements of the dial because, dear Jean Francois, on this side of the Alps we take the concept of style very much into consideration.

    But do not worry and use all the words that will be used for your tutorial: my armpit is wide (I can slip under this 2 or 3 baguettes even if I prefer to eat them) and the tattoo artist should not have space problems.

    However, considering our common view on the subject, I feel obliged to invite you - when the Elbrus is ready, before that moment I do not think it is necessary or useful to something - to drink a glass of polonium, no, I I got confused, I wanted to write "a glass of Chianti" in Florence to make the two watches known (we could instead sit comfortably at tables at opposite ends of the room :-D )

    Would a plain mirror polish on the case back not work (signal mirror ) with model name water rating and any other details around the very edge

    No.1 my favorite. This white effectively reminds of the snow.
    Also prefer keeping the Elbrus silhouette on the caseback, best would be if associated with that tutorial we are now all expecting
    Last I fully agree that the project has evolved well beyond--and better--than only an hommage to the Alpinist, but that it would be good to keep a reference to it.

    The idea is interesting; yet if, as I suspect, the front, mineral, non anti-reflective glass is flat, is it truly useful?
    At least, most of us seem to agree we don’t want a “display” caseback...

    Seriously, you may have something there, for the how-to use the compass reminder
    I’ll tinker around it. No access to my LaDaube Illustrator, though. At worse, I’ll sketch with a pen, and post a shot...
