    I've only got this, but I don't think that it is very pursuasive:

    If with a Belarus theme, then white background, red embroidery. Add a grass green logo, you got their colours.
    I believe a white or silver background could be a change from the plasticky black seen on so many digitals, esp. if going for a silver case.

    Apologies for the rather crude edit, I just knocked it together on my phone. I would intend for the function button text to remain white, but couldn’t isolate it from the background when editing on the phone!

    The WUS logo can then be engraved/etched onto the case back.

    It would also be pretty cool if we could get an inverted display and black DLC coated case and pushers.
    Yes that might be an idea, also replacing Electronika with the WUS logo and a stripe.

    Regarding the DLC coating that invalidates a little the point of having a SS case, doesn't it?

That realistically brings it down to two choices likely to get enough interest to proceed: a highly affordable, and quick to deliver, super thin all steel multifunction LCD; or an expensive, challenging to deliver, yet utterly retrotastic LED.
    Well at the moment I think it's too early as we don't have a sketch for either of the ideas, Surok needs to check internally the feasibility, cost and development time of the LED option.

    He will also check the possibility to have a LCD homage to the B6-02, so far the members didn't see that option therefore it makes sense they are not interested, but probably a good proposal with positive or negative display with the module 60 might gain traction as at the moment not many makers offer "elegant" digital watches.

    For the LED proposal, everybody thinks they will make a SS copy of the Electronika 1 with the most famous case (that was was available in many styles) but perhaps they can't make it as so far they stated they can make the module.

    Not at all keen on replacing the ЭЛЕКТРОНИКА logo. I’d rather limit the WUS logo to the case back, but if people really want it on the dial I’d rather it be a bit more subtle. Something like this:



    DLC stainless steel is light years ahead of coated brass, so completely worth it in my mind, and adds a stealth vibe that I think would look great. However this isn’t by any means a deal breaker, I’d be very happy with a nicely finished stainless steel case without the coating.

    Though I would really like to see a negative display if possible.

    Also in addition to a negative display, lume would be awesome!

    Just saw this thread where they modified an LCD to add lume:

    Negative displays ...meh, i can never read them.
    If I fail to reply to your inane post just assume you are on the ignore list.

    Re: WUS project 2019 - Electronika.

    Here is a better quality render I just made with the ideas that cuthbert had in mind.
    WUS colors, removal of the outer border, and white text.
    Didn't do the caseback, but it could have some info like stainless steel, WUS logo, etc. All in Cyrillic of course.

    Great render, thanks, but in my opinion the dial is not "WUSey" enough. It appears a little too "standard", it needs something to set it apart and identify with the WUS community.
