I have just found out that modern Grand Seiko Movements are mostly unfinished on parts which are not visible through the see through caseback. This is quite a disappointment since GS is trying to match Rolex in price and a lot of their fans claimed that GS is high end and on par with Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin but at a lower price point.
If they want to increase their prices, at least make sure all parts are finished equally.

This is the movement plate for a Grand Seiko GMT.
And below is the movement plate for a Breguet 5177.
The biggest slap in the face is that an equivalent Breguet can be had for around the same price as a Grand Seiko in the preowned market due to massive depreciation on Breguet watches.
Grand Seiko is not high end
