Did you mean "expensive" or "inexpensive"? In any case, the movement looks quite nice from here - the bridges look reduced to their minimum surface (in a Glashutte chronograph kind of way... spaghetti bridges). Except for the hideous balance cock... Can't see the actual finish on the pic though...
Anyhow, if you would have "actually preferred a solid back to the display", why are you showing off the display back as your avatar?
