    No it looks great. I wish the Grand Seiko quartz models had a display back.

    HOnestly that quartz movement is about as pretty as they get, I kinda like the fact you can look at it, even though I am not a quartz guy.

    I would still prefer a solid caseback for quartz, but I respect the movement decoration. I only like exhibition casebacks to see things move, like the gears and balance wheel.

    I don't see what's wrong with that. Let's be honest, how many mechanicals with display casebacks are owned by people who know what any one piece is?

    Maybe it's the start of a new "Jewels War", but there's no rotor to put them on; right - autoquartz!
