    If you look close, I think you can see the movement through the caseback.
    This may be the evolutionary father of the clear caseback!

    The script looks applied with a rubber stamp
    Watch is also missing the bezel and the case back medallion.

    I love the bezel, what style is that called, "floating bezel"?
    And if it's just a thing they grabbed and dropped on the watch for the sake of hiding the rest of the crap then why didn't they vaseline the lens:rolleyes:

    Is the orange box celebrating anything in particular ? Or is just an homage to the 70's :confused:

    ...and I think that Ranfft's rule of never buying a watch whose movement you can't see holds especially true on a fine item such as this. Say what you will, at least the Ukrainian art department has more flare.
