Thanks for that.
Fratello did a review and mentioned the insert was made of Hardlex.

I saw that and I've also seen descriptions on chrono24 stating aluminup. It looks like aluminum to me with a clear coat on it that makes it appear shiney. Here's the chrono24 description:

The Case:
The Seiko 5 Sports GMT SSK001K1 is presented in a 42.5mm brushed stainless steel case. It features a two-tone black/silver unidirectional rotating bezel that exhibits a 24-hour display that can be used to set the time for another time zone. The bezel is made out of aluminium. The coined walls of the bezel ensure that it is easily operable. A pushdown crown is located at 4 o’clock, it is flanked by a crown guard which ensures that it is not knocked out of place. Hardlex crystal also provides the front and the back of the case with protection against scratches and shattering. The exhibition caseback provides the wearer with an insight into the inner mechanisms of the watch.

Either way, I think you'd like it. =)
