You can get the same watch on ebay from a seller in Japan for about £1200 with free delivery. That's suspiciously cheap if you ask me. The Junghans stockist I know recently told me that they are quite hard for the retaillers to get hold of at the moment and the trade price seems to be on the up.
As I mentioned earlier I heard that they were about to go up by about £200 in 2013.[/quote]
If you look around you can find some good deals in Japan.
It's a strange place with high end items for sale in the same shop
as junk (Donkee is a perfect example of this.)
I bought a perfectly legit brand new limited Omega seamaster for 110,000 yen (about 500 quid back then) from a Supermarket up the road from my house and promptly sold it for double when I arrived in the U.K a month later.
Most of the sellers on yahoo auctions are legit.
Here's a new Max Bill for 900 quid. Kosher seller.U can go to the shop in Osaka.
Well worth buying a watch if your here on holiday if you hunt around.
