    I guess I'd like the numerals and indices to take some inspiration from something like this....on the face anyway.

    No, I believe Joe's talking about the indices only, not the alarm setting hand...

    Just one more thought, have you tried adding a leading 0 to the 2-digit "degrees" making all numerals of the compass bezel 3 digits?
    Glad you bring it back: I shied away from insisting a 3rd time.
    There may be coLusion, here...

    Just kidding: NEVER take me for serious (except when I appear to kid). I’m just jealous of his 1МЧЗ Signal. And his collection, generally. All I have is my cushion case 1979 Poljot Alarm, pale gold 05AU (Afghanistan times — they went cheap). I love it, though...

    Unfortunately,the signal ain't mine,but yes I did mean the indices/numeral style.
    I also quite like the syringe style hands....now they kinda look a bit like the bottom of the handle of a soviet climbing axe!

    That's a really interesting observation, and I kinda like the thought of that - seriously! Would others care to comment on this or come in with other symbolic hands suggestions?

    I was kidding. Yes, I agree these numerals looked great. Better than that: creative, for their time. Now isnít this here project busy enough with so many symbols? Why donít we keep your suggestion for a dress watch 2019 project? Iíd love such one, esp. without the alarm. Dead serious here.
    My... I just saw nearby on WUS an Alpina which looks close to our Elbrus, with double time, degrees scale... and 9am to 5pm outlined in red on the daytime half of the internal bezel! An employee orientation tool watch, case you donít find your way to the card puncher? Too many features loose the purpose, imho.

    And why this red counterbalancer on the seconds hand??


    Now ó hate to tell you this ó but this Signalís syringe hands donít seem to me totally kosher, I mean totally Frankfurter Stein. Maybe not: Iím no expert, just paranoidsky...

    Seriously ó at least trying my best which ainít mucho. The Alpenstock/Elbruschmock idea 😬, even by the butt of its handle? It could be a concept: a handset of mountain pick & sickle (cutting in half Raketa Copernic minute hands?), plus a couple more revolving bezels for moon-phases, time in Magadan, Petropavlovsk-Kamthchatsky and Anadyr...
    Mountain barock and roll!

    I find they are all great ideas.
    I would add only a ringtone modulated on the Soviet anthem with a Siberian wolf background
