    Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon Ceramic XV Just Arrived

    this watch is much nicer looking in the metal. i was also worried about the bracelet being too polished. the bracelet works fine for me even though i generally do not like a lot of polishing on sport watches. the lume is magnificent. the blue is gorgeous at night. the bezel is top quality with incredible lume as well.

    the watch is heavy but wears comfortably on my wrist. one of the lugs is slightly uncomfortable when touching my wrist, but this is to me not getting the fit quite right.

    i purchased from rob topper and am very happy with the watch and their service.

    Magnificent-looking watch. The Hydrocarbon series is one tough watch. Great movement protection n nice bracelet. Hope u manage to sort out the lug issue..too tight?

    watch feels great now. i have adjusted the bracelet, but more importantly, i have been sleeping with it on at night. this seems to have made my wrist used to it. when waking up in the morning it doesn't even feel like i have a watch on my arm. i absolutely love the watch and am in love with the blue tones when the light goes down. i like when it gets just slightly dark and there is a hint of a blew misty glow under the sapphire. the night visibility is crystal clear. the green and blue, or yellow and blue, (i am not sure since i am color blind) work so well together. the watch has a 1000ft/333m of water resistance which will make it a nice diving companion, and it is a chronometer to boot.

    i am in love with this watch and i suggest anyone who has thought of this watch try to see it in person.

    you get a super high quality movement, watch case, bezel, bracelet, dial, and clasp at a great price point. it is A LOT of watch for the money.

    Gorgeous. I particularly like how it says Swiss Made on the inside of the clasp.
