    Very well executed and visually striking. A few questions:

    • Is the back case also crystal, or is it steel and removed in the pictures above to show the Movement?
    • Do you have any video showing the sweep on the second hand?
    • Is there any water resistance built into the conversion design?

    Thank you!
    -Yes, the back cover has crystal too
    -No, I don't have any videos, but I can take one and send it to you.
    -It can be considered as "moisture proof", I wouldn't go swim with it :)
