    Sure, I am interested to see what it looks like.
    You are exactly right about it being "Arial", but that was only meant as a placeholder

    Can you show us a sample of that font?

    I searched GOST type a font and GOST type b font and both look excellent for the purpose.

    Just do an image search for "GOST font". You'll see two with "GOST type A" (or B) at the top and a full sample below.

    The promised pictures of the bracelets. In order to be fair to Technochas, I was specifically offered to look at other bracelets and told these are the cheapest ones from the 1990s and they don't look very good. They are EXACTLY what was pictured and described and well worth the price paid. I'm completely satisfied with the transaction.

    Back side, curved to show maximum sideways flex in bracelet. Note the "Stainless Steel" marking.

    So...we're just down to the case supplier getting things right?

    Any renders of the caseback using the updated font?
