A picture of the movement is not shown to expose the movement. It has a frontal glass-through opening instead of the usual case back opening. We would have to detach the bezel from the front case to expose the movement - in this case, the dial might get scratched & the crystal broken. We only wish to preserve the beauty of this timepiece. It is guaranteed authentic! This watch has never ever been opened!
