Junkers used to make good watches, the company that made them had the rights taken away by the owners of the brand. The brand owners started manufacturing watches and now they are essentially not even a shadow of what they were in terms of quality, being copies of iconic German watches (the Max Bill).

It's a pity, they used to make nice, reliable watches.

And yes, Made in Germany is not some absolute guarantee of superior quality, neither is Made in Japan nor Made in the USA. It depends on the company and their ethics. It sounds to me like the OP got a raw deal here.

@Ronit What exactly happened to the watch? Did the crystal fall out? Honestly, I've never heard of glue being used to keep a crystal on (exception being really cheap MIC stuff). Usually a crystal is friction fit and has a gasket to keep out dust / water splashes etc.
