    Thanks for clarifying about the private link, 24h. Never been involved in a forum project before and it's nice to know how it's likely to be done.

    Looking at Technochas' online store, it looks like they still have some 55 variants for sale. What are they saying we'll be able to customize in order to make it at WUS project? Otherwise, it sounds like we'd just be bulk ordering a bunch of them.

    The 55 models in their store are titanium nitride or chrome plated brass. If the 55 wins the vote (which is kind of apparent now), the goal is to have a full stainless steel case, engraved caseback, custom dial, and I'm not sure about the strap/bracelet.

    Oh well have a look at the sketches and compare them to the current production.

    I think most people would prefer a bracelet on such a watch, so it would depend on whether Technochas can find enough of those old-stock Poljot bracelets, otherwise we'd probably be better off by ordering the watch only. After all, seeing everybody else's strap/bracelet choices is another part of the fun of a project.

    Re: Poll : Electronika project options

    I received a confirmation of the cost of the 55S (steel) with laser engraving in the back case etc... it would be 2400 rubles.

    Technochas would also be needing a pre-payment of 30.000 rubles for the investment, this means that if 25 subscribers can commit 50% of the price of the watch it would be feasible. Delivery max 75 days, that means 2 months and half.

    Awaiting for confirmation for the B6-02.

    Once the forum owners give their blessings I would be only too happy to provide a 50% seed fee.

    Great work cuthbert

    Re: Poll : Electronika project options

    I would also be happy to make a pre-payment!

    Are we 100% set on the idea of having one design, or is it possible to do two dial designs?
    Just thinking out loud again...I'm probably sounding like a broken record. If we used the same caseback there would be minimal costs to making a 2nd dial and people would be likely to buy two.

    P.S. What does the laser etching look like? Are they able to get a deep engraving like on the Vostok "B" crowns or would it look something like the engraving on the newer Amphibia flat casebacks?

    Re: Poll : Electronika project options

    Currently option 2 is decisively in the lead with 43 votes over 24 for option 1. Bearing in mind the lower threshold needed for option 2 to be viable, it is worth noting that 6 members who voted for option 1 stated an interest in option 2 also. I feel like we might be close to a result.
