Time for a battery change on my Grand Seiko SBGX091 and thought I would take a moment to post pics of the movement.

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.
Bet those Swiss Legend owners are so happy their "Sapphitek" crystals have a 10-year warranty. Oh, wait...
