Wow I can't find these at competitive prices to this, apparently others can, I guess I don't know where best to look....Junghans is always expensive from what I've seen. I saw someone on WUS forum 'heads up' section claiming that 850 was a great price on ebay....
Will the day wheel be in English?
499 I would consider
700 usd for this? really...
Meister Driver Chronoscope, please!
Wait a minute, did they describe it "as time passes, you get the sense that you’re gaining speed". What does that even mean? Ridiculous... hard pass for that stupid description alone

One of the reasons I don't read the descriptions anymore lol
Yeah not a great listing. Also not that impressive a price. After you factor tax etc, it's not that different to the price on UK Amazon. Love Junghans, but this isn't the best. The Meister Telemeter on the other hand...
According to manufacturer site: Automatic: 38.4mm x 9.9mm Day/Date: 40.4mm x 11.9mm 3 bars for both.
Not my style and overpriced ( J800 is obviously based on 2824-2 ).
Edit: Day/Date has a J800.4, ETA 2836 ( need confirmation ).

I'm pretty sure that the low-priced 2824 & 7750 on MD use basic ETA. In-house movements actually justify a premium compared to third party, but are not a be-all end-all due to servicing cost and long term part availability.
Back to Junghans, I think they use elaborated ETA because I see blue screws on one picture, but that can not justify this price. I had the same issue on the Max Bill, I see cost-cuttings ( ETA / acrylic crystal ) which are not reflected in MD price. I'm fine with paying an extra for an elaborated ETA, as long as they don't overcharge for it. Here I don't see value, maybe Junghans is not competitive or simply doesn't want to lower its prices.

Given that there are literally millions of 2824s out there...from ETA, Sellita, etc...long term parts availablility is almost certain to be a non-issue for a very, very long time. There are also multiple suppliers. I can't speak to repairs complexity, but on these points, the 2824 is way ahead.
Besides, you can still get parts for turn of the century pocket watches produced in the thousands.
Case size?
Unlike every other drop, there is no stats section at the end. Things like case size and strap/bracelet length are very important to is Massdrop!!!
