    So I guess if we went down that route durability isn't an issue

    You could explode an unspent WW2 5,000lb bomb directly under a Ratnik and the coating on the case wouldn't even come out with a blemish on it. If that is what we would use there is no problem!

    The coating I was thinking of was on the very first batch of Ratniks,it was a bronze/gold hue,rather than the purple/bronze/dark brown of later models.
    I did have one of these but I sold it on

    Racing Green dial
    Bronze coated case
    Dark brown, dual rivet, "Aviator" style strap

    That's my ultimate wishlist but I'm looking forward to seeing all the other suggestions.
    (I might just mod a 'dirskie 43 in to something like that)

    That sounds like a better colour. Was it made from the same stuff?

    Maybe when the time is right we can start a poll to vote for or against sapphire and the extra total cost for the project watch. I do think though a lot of us would love to have a sapphire mounted. Personally I really hate the look of scratched minerals and with the size of the K34`s glass chanches to get it damaged are quite fair. An old watch with a shiney clear sapphire often still looks nice, but a new watch with scratched mineral glass looks rubbish. Just my two cents ;)

    I like the idea of the double crowns, as they represent the twin peaks of Mt. Elbrus. A blue dial is a personal favorite, and I would respectfully suggest a sunburst version to continue our theme of the outdoors. Perhaps the rotating chapter ring could include N, S, E and W at 12, 3, 6 and 9, respectively in honor of our compass and expedition to the mountain. And a mineral crystal is just fine by me. Gives it a nice vintage feel.
