I got this thing a couple of days ago. Really happy with it so far. Very well built and comfortable to wear. I'm definitely keeping it.
Alpina Alpiner 4 Chrono, Alpina Startimer, Armida A1, Armida A7, Steinhart Ocean Vintage GMT
I haven't checked the entire thread but wanted to ask if there was any feel or thoughts about it fitting a 6.5 inch wrist? I am intrigued by this one but if it's too big or top heavy then it's a no go. Also interested in suggestions for straps since this is a non standard lug size and I'm not a bracelet guy.
Sent from somewhere in the 20th century.
Just got mine in today and what a beauty. It's extremely difficult to take pictures of this thing because of the colors and the way the light hits the ceramic but I assure you it's ten times better looking in person. Watch fits like a 40mm as it feels like I am wearing my old ceramic Submariner. Below are shots on my 6.75" wrist. Extremely comfortable!
Definitely a bit better quality than my Steinhart GMT with the exception of the clasp. Steinhart wins on clasp hands down

Thanks to a friend, I was able to try this on today:
Not my picture:
The sizing is pretty good, it looks like a 40mm diver on steroids, since the dial is small and the bezel is quite large. I felt that the watch overall was great for the money and very unique in person, but it's extremely difficult to get an accurate picture to show the color of the fake patina on the dial, or the ceramic bezel. Regarding my complaints, the crown is a bit too large for the crown guards, the bezel teeth aren't deep enough and the clasp is rather cheap, but if you like the way the watch looks, buy it! It's quite a stunner in person.
