Whether it’s a world-class competitor or a luxury watch, either of their worth usually boils down to what’s on the inside.

For these eight luxury watches, each features a transparent display that allows the wearer to marvel at the movement on the inside with what’s called an exhibition case back.

These are the pinnacle of watch observation letting you see the inner elements that keep your timepiece ticking. Best of all, the six picked here are all comfortably affordable.

There’s nothing like a display caseback for appreciating the ingenuity, beauty, and craftsmanship of a watch movement. The integrity of the construction is visible and that reassurance is priceless for true watch enthusiasts.  

Here are a few looks at watches with exhibition case backs, none of which should totally break your back account.
