I got a Mega Solar Ceramic as an engagement present from my wife. After 9 years and it still looks like new. The watch is made from very good quality materials, ceramic body with saphire glass which is why there is not a mark on it. And now for the but... It no longer keeps time and the hands freeze at certain times. Having discussed this with an authorised Junghans repairer, I was advised it is probably the movement worn and will cost £160 to fix. What shocked me more was that they advised it is normal for the movement to last only 8-10 years!! I wrote to Junghans to ask if this was normal and they refused to discuss it with me. So, I have a beautiful watch that is made (externally) from high quality materials that needs a new movement every 10 years. So on that basis would I recommend buying one, No.
