    I have heard concerns regarding readability. Text will be made as large as possible. Compared to the K-34 bezel I estimate the text will be slightly smaller, but our two layered design will max out the vertical space the bezel has to offer as well. I don't anticipate any visual distortion from the crystal either. Currently the pure red has a 3:1 contrast ratio with the dark slate background, which is okay, but is the lowest among all primary and secondary colors (except blue, obviously). White is 12:1 contrast ratio, for comparison. On the other hand, red also has the highest contrast ratio against white markings to visually differentiate the two. Aesthetically, I don't think any other color combinations would work out as well with the classic red and blue compass needle.



    Apologies if I have been sluggish lately, although while we are always still waiting for more people to join I don't need to rush either.
    No need to apologize. It looks fantastic and is going to be worth the wait. Though the différences are subtle, I agree with your assessment that the first design (i.e. on the left) works better - although I like them both. I guess owning an Alpinist already has biased my opinion somewhat.

    If I understand it correctly, either way, one Hemisphere will be slightly Confused.
    As it is, the Northern Guys are at the South but will be guided to opposite side of the Sketch/Dial to find North at the 0.
    Flip the Text and the Northern explanation is up where their Hemisphere is and where North will be found but the Southern Hemisphere Residents will have to read their Text at the bottom but start withe the 0 to find North.

    Basically, one will have to Start at the wrong Side or one will End at the wrong Side.
    As the Compass Hand moves around i´d consider it not too important for the Graphic considering it´s just B/W and not colored and one could easily mix their meaning.
    Wich side represents Red/Blue? I´d forget it within just a couple of Days.

    I guess both Versions are equallly right or wrong.
    See it isn’t an easy dilemma — you’re done in either way.

    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!

    Best regards,

    Dave

    I second this!

    And add this is the one project which dragged me out of lurking round WUS.

    Dubious compliment, as some may hate you for it...

    I also prefer the one on the right. Alpinist or not.... it is easier to read for me.

    The right side is easier. Those of us with old eyes...
