I would be nervous changing a battery on a watch of that price but good for you on getting it done. Appreciate the pics, nice finishing on that. .

All quartz is definitely not alike. Reminds me of the decoration on an Omega 1538 - you don't believe it until you see it. However, that GS is really above and beyond ... yeah, I'm gettin' bit by the HAQ bug, too. Jeez.
