    Ceramica XV, any satisfied owners?

    I've recently come across the XV and I really like a lot about the watch. No AD by me has one in Stock, so I'm relegated to learning about it online.

    I seem to get two different impressions from the reviews I've read:it's either comfortable or not comfortable AT ALL due to the case design and the lugs in particular.

    I'm having a hard time finding feedback from any longtime owners. Any feedback would be great.

    I love mine, especially on rubber.

    I agree about the sizing. If your wrist is average or smaller, you will find the wrap-around lugs terrifically comfortable. If you have a larger wrist, it's not the watch for you.

    Have you seen the Black?

    Thanks for the reply. I'm at 6 7/8" - 7" wrist, what's your wrist size?

    I was able to track down an AD with a Ceramica XV to try on. Unfortunately, there seems to be about two inches of extra links in the Ball watches from the factory (for my wrist anyway) so getting a good sense of how it would fit is difficulty. On the one hand, it seemed to drape nicely, on the other hand when pulled more tightly, the outside of the lug seemed to rub against my wrist bone and I could see that being uncomfortable-hard to tell what it would be like with the correct size band on my wrist.

    As an aside, they had a preowned alligator in that I quite liked, it seemed to be a really nicely finished watch that looked great with a sort of slate gray dial.

    If fit is your prime concern look at a Black or consider a EMII series watch.
