That looks great considering it's low volume production. You should see the door mechanism up close on a Boeing 777, of course it's painted white so it doesn't look as sexy, but just as complex, possibly even more. And it has to function several thousand times over its life.

Considering that (1) Mercury had some potential hatch issues and (2) the original Apollo hatch design was complicit in the Apollo 1 deaths, I can see why the second generation hatch came out this way.
