Of course you’re right: which is blue, or red makes strictly no operational difference. Now this is a tutorial shortened to the limit, so I had to make it didactic. And arbitrary. Also Amazone corrected me by reminding that on compasses red tip is traditionally North.
I intended Red to be the darker one: most contrast on the blue background, or on steel engraving.
If you forget, no big deal: North hem., in daytime (7am to 5pm), whatever tip is closest to “6” is the right one
Then again, if most of us prefer the other version, no problem!
I vastly prefer the one on the right, as it's simply more legible--the red on slate markings on the other one just don't work for my aging eyes. A 3:1 contrast ratio is not sufficient. And as PanKorop noted, the S-E-W markers are more clearly indicated on the second example.
The example on the right is the one for me too. I like the legibility and the triangles look good to me.
Def. Looking like a useful and classy tool watch!

Both look good to me, but I do prefer the right one as per PanKorop's comments.
I have to say my hat is off to you as an organizer. I think this is the 3rd (or maybe 4th) forum watch project I have followed, and it is by far the most efficiently run. You are doing a great job!
The right side is easier. Those of us with old eyes...

It's the one on the right side for me...
