I too could use variety in numeration...

Dual-use bezels are not uncommon. Some versions of the Seiko Bellmatic have the alarm-setting bezel also marked for minutes, which obviously can't be used both at the same time. Notice also some military/field-type watches with hour numbers and minute marks on the one bezel. Once again not possible to read a second time zone and count elapsed minutes. Closer to home for this forum is the classic Okean chronograph with bezel marked in half-hours; which may be used for timing longer durations than the 30 minutes on the sub-dial or for reading the time in a second time zone but not both at once.

Two for the price of one!
Please see each of these threads for votes on the bezel design and Elbrus logo

I'm all for taking inspiration from the Poljus but making a direct homage to that particular watch dial is a bit restrictive for the design of the Elbrus
The amount of similar particular dial designs we already have in our individual collections so far should also have no bearing on the current project design either,for the very same reason.

And, as you said, there are already five hands, viusally.
As a participant of the Elbrus project I just want to let you know that I just resigned. From the start on I had my hesitations about some ideas and descisions made regarding the watch progression and I think I just do not have the " right click" with it. I really do hope to see the watch reach it`s final stage for all of you who are participating in this project. Repect to all who try to make it work. I allready sent out a message to our great project manager too. Keep up the good work guys! make it happen!
