In practical terms, it makes sense for them to offer sapphire. My first two Apple Watches both had sapphire displays and they stayed more scratch-free than my current Gorilla-glass-display model (caveat, though: they all have water- and oil-shedding oleophobic coatings).I believe Junghans now offers sapphire as a factory option. This is a complete about-face for the brand. I contacted them a couple of years back about this and they all but laughed at me - in a very germanic way - for even suggesting they might consider such a pivot.
Junghans is on my shortlist for now, and I'd still prefer acrylic. My question is, if the coating starts to get flaky, can it be removed? We've seen people remove AR coatings from sapphire crystals around here because they got tired of scratches and blemishes, so I'd hope that the same is doable with Junghans's coated acrylic.
