$1000+ for a watch with a faux-tourbillon? Ouch.
A lovely Swatch, but 26 jewel seems excessive when the ébauche has so few complications. Worth maybe 300 to 500, but not more than that.

Question to you: Were you thinking about buying this watch for yourself? Because I'm trying to understand your concern over an ETA 2824, which might not impress you as you put it, but otherwise is an incredibly well respected, Swiss Made movement with a long and established track record of success and reliability in many Swiss watches. Obviously people have the right to be enthusiastic about different things. Watch people know it especially.

For myself, no, it's a woman's watch. Even the pre '31 Eterna I have, which is an Eterna movement in a cheap American made case is only something I keep because it demonstrates striking similarity to another movement 100 years it's senior, even the plating was low grade silver. The Eterna isn't as accurate but the cases made in the US were notoriously poor quality. The US does not hallmark properly either, so I asked the assay office to apply the F mark, as is convention. Citychamp/Swatch is aHong Kong company, they have manufacturers in Switzerland and SOME of the movement is made there. Both Swatch and Eterna have very short histories, both crossing and ending in Chinese ownership. In America, it has to look nice. Other countries are more interested in quality. If there is a watch that does not simply contain an ébauche, I would be interested. Knowledge of horology is something most people either lack or Google yet still don't understand.
3 purchasers needed. That could be tough. Too bad it didn't drop a couple of months ago during Christmas shopping season. I think that this is a very nice watch, with the caveat that women seem to be fine with quartz, and a little annoyed with having to set and wind a watch.

yeah. But do you think this model is overpriced? Or at $1100, it's fair enough?

I don't know about the price, since I'm not in the market for a gift watch this year. In general Massdrop has decent prices. When people complain, it's over a 5 percent difference with Amazon, or worse, with some website you can't really trust, or eBay.
I am suddenly very aware of the fact that I have never looked into a time machine or crystal ball before! Unless by time machine they mean watches and clocks XD
