    Re: Elektronika project general discussion thread

    Cuhbert has reported the news correctly.

    We've received the new samples of stainless steel cases after May holidays, as planned. But there was some defects again, and we decided that they are not good enough for mass production. So now we're waiting for new improved samples and cannot start project right now.

    In other words, we've enough time to discuss the watch design Here in attachment is sketches of the watches in new case and three glasses: our traditional one (already in production), the one without frame (as proposed here), and the one with WUS logo.

    I hope the issues with the supplier can be solved soon, IMO the last sketch is the best WITH the white frame.

    Is this the correct case shape?

    I like N3 as is (without frame)!

    What finishing is being applied to the case? Any chance of a brushed finish?

    I really don’t like the white frame. It makes it look too busy, and draws too much attention to the edge of the dial.

    The previous renders showed orange instead of yellow, did this change?

    I found the f10 star logo the best looking. The -W- is not my cup of tea, too simple and crude.

    I vote Nr.1 Can't have enough frames and makes me feel at home. (also a G-Shock guy)
    I'd simply add the star f10 logo.

    Its a digital vintage watch... they are meant to look busy :D

    The yellow needs to be changed to WUS orange. With the frame removed the orange lines should align with the text rather than extend towards the edge. The top should have the logo or the orange underline, not both. And I think the general consensus was a preference for the pentagon logo, rather than the WUS one. Plus an ‘С’ after the 55 to indicate it’s the stainless steel model.

    Bit of a crude mock-up done on my phone, but something like this:

    Gotta have the orange!

    In order of preference:
    1. No logo or frame
    2. WUS logo, no frame
    3. Forum pentagon logo, no frame

    The white frame (or any frame) adds too much to the face, making it too busy. Similarly, the pentagon logo appears very busy due to its compressed size. Ironically, it would work better larger, but there simply isn't room for it to my eye. The WUS logo I could take or leave. Hence, my top preference is sans logo at all.

    Thanks for these updated renders and for your continued diligence on this great project!
