    Yes, exactly what I was thinking. I don't really like the idea of slapping WUS on the front but it definitely needs something else to set it apart from the standard Electronika watches.
    Anyone have suggestions?

    Didn't do the caseback, but it could have some info like stainless steel, WUS logo, etc. All in Cyrillic of course.

    It is good but as Mariomart has mentioned it looks too close to the current dial, well basically it's the current dial with a different shade of grey and orange.

    As said before I was thinking about a grey stripe without the Elektronika logo that would be interrupted by the WUS logo...we all know it's an Electronika 55.

    For the negative display I will ask, so far I have seen just the module 60D.

    I also think we might consider to have the "export" dial in English as it makes easier to use the many functions of the watch:

    Re: WUS project 2019 - Electronika.

    The newest render with the "W" as in post 183 would work for me. Or kick it up a notch with more orange. Perhaps put the 4 lines surrounding the WUS "W" on each side? And/or somehow get an orange lcd screen. I don't have any good rendering tools handy but something like this:

    Nice, but perhaps a little more of the WUS cross hairs

    I'm not a fan of having the WUS logo on the front of the watch, but I do like the orange overload very much!

    What is the problem with the W logo on the front of the watch?

    I realize that some people don't care much, but some are strongly opposed. I've never really understood why somebody would want to participate in a collaborative design exercise but want to obscure the identity of the community that designed it, as if it is embarrassing.

    Just as I can no longer read my LED watch.

    I tried on the old DataTime a couple of days ago. The display was a double-vision blur. I'm not about to start wearing my reading glasses all the time just to look at my watch, so I guess that it won't get much use any more.

    I just thought that I should reinforce that point for the benefit of anybody else in the early stages of long-sightedness who may be attracted to the LED option.

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

    Those lume experiments over on the Digital and Casio forums are pretty awesome. And they certainly address the low-contrast issue sometimes associated with negative LCDs. Apparently UV light will penetrate the black parts of the display, activating the entire lumed surface evenly. My only concern is that the 55 module is already a tight fit in the slim case, so I don't know if a lumed Elektronika would be possible.
