    New Junghans HAQ Meister Mega ?

    I know Junghans are known for their radio controlled watches. However if the spec is true then this watch will stick to 8 seconds per year without any signal .

    I know nothing about this watch. HAQ/BT/RF might have an appeal.

    I was looking at this watch the other day. Somehow I missed the 8 SPY spec. I wonder how they are achieving that. Apologies if I am being a complete idiot but aside from careful construction I cannot see anything about the underlying technology that is being employed to achieve HAQ status.

    There are several reviews I've found that mention that 8 SPY. I'd like to see something from Junghans, tho.

    My other concern is battery life.

    The Max Bills are using the same movement, and look to be just a tad less. These puppies are not cheap.

    Not sure it's crossed the pond yet. Junghans USA doesn't show it, and neither does WatchBuys.

    In the manual for the J101.65 movement it says:

    >>Even without time synchronisation the time shown is always extremely accurate The time deviation range that is possible in quartz mode has been minimised to +/– 8 seconds a year. When worn normally, the watch’s actual deviation is thus 8 seconds a year at most.<<

    Battery life is 2 years according to the manual.

    Interestingly they are also developing an app for phone synchronization that uses radio signal (no mention of BT)
    I know people have made these before, but an official manufacturer app is nice.

    These are available in the UK at a 300 GBP premium over a standard quartz £790 vs £490 for a Max Bill.

    Actually it might be NFC. NFC's intended as a transient connection, and it shouldn't take much to change the time zone. That's what they said it was for.

    2 years...ugh. Not that bad, I suppose. It really does tick off the points otherwise, if it's as advertised, and the size is great.

    I was looking though the Firstclass watches website. They are currently offering £150.00 off watches over £300. I do not have any connection to the website. I just noticed the offer and thought it might be of use.

    Looks to be a UK offer. I'm getting 10% off watches over $175, which would still help.

    Funny thing. Our resident measurement lovers would probably love to test the 8 SPY...and on that basis it'd be quite appealing, as it's half the price of a 9F. BUT, having the RF makes that impractical, if you actually intend to wear it.

    I'm not looking right now. Had I not gotten my Meister hand wound (at about 30% off list)...I might be more interested, but I did. I'm *trying* to hold the line to pieces that have been on my short list for a long time now, or have something compellingly different. That's down to an Omega with a coaxial escapement, and the Citizen caliber 0100. And this has a fairly big strike against it for me...battery.
