Unless I missed it somewhere, first I’ve heard (starting at 8:13) of this complaint that the lugs are sharp as razor blades and dig into the skin:

I have not had a problem

 By: ant : March 1st, 2021-09:27
with my ceramic version. Looking at the video the watch seemed tight on his wrist or maybe he made especially vigourous wrist movements? Whatever, I have had nothing but pleasure wearing mine and it has received many positive comments from 'civilians'. Re... 

'Civilians.' Ha!

Likely because he needs an additional link🥱

It's such an uncomfortable watch that I've chosen to buy the steel, after the titanium. I really love to hurt myself, to cut my flesh and feel the pain 😎 I didn't watch till the end, the comparison with an explorer 2 says it all, IMHO 🙄

So Here's My Take...

... I freakin' love this watch... until it's on my wrist for 5 minutes. I love everything about it, the look, the blue'd hands, the titanium case, the micro-rotor... until I am wearing it and it starts to dig into my wrist. Then... not so much. - Scott

Not a problem

I have skinny wrists and wear the watch before my wrist bone, the edges are well done they are as sharp as possible without compromising comfort, you can drag your finger over edges and you would not say they are capable of cutting or hurting you.

I'm dying🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Zero problems with satin steel blue

 By: joshsx : March 1st, 2021-13:08
One of my most comfortable watches, I almost forget it's there when compared to my Royal Oak bracelet. Perhaps some of these fellas need to add a link or two.

HAHA brilliant

I noticed that when I tried it on.

It didn't seem like it would be a problem on my wrist... but yeah, the lugs do have really sharp edges.


 By: invalid_name : March 1st, 2021-14:29
Both the lugs and the crown cause discomfort for me. Doesn't matter how the bracelet is adjusted, it just changes which part of the wrist is effected. If the bracelet had a half-link or other facility for micro adjustment, I think the problem could be som... 

Try a strap

 By: invalid_name : March 2nd, 2021-12:52
One thing I forgot to mention: swapping the bracelet for a strap may also help. The Bulgari Octo straps are quite rigid and this means that the watch case can "float" above the wrist, lessening the pressure of the lugs against the skin.

FACTORS: - wrist - bone structure - fat around bone or lack therof - time of day and water retention - material - heft - looseness or tightness of fit - time of year, or lack thereof (who says stuff like that? 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️) - tendency to complain - need more ... 

My Ti version is the most comfortable watch I've ever owned

 By: watchbiao : March 1st, 2021-15:08
It feels like a second skin whenever I put it on. Perhaps the person in the video has sized the bracelet too tight or his wrist size/shape just isn't the most suitable for this piece...? ...  

Not at all

Not an issue at all for me

 By: Esharp : March 1st, 2021-20:32
One of the most comfortable watches I own! Best E.

It depends on your wristbone. I'm in the minority here, but I agree, the watch does have sharp corners and the sharp corner rubs against my wristbone.

 By: patrick_y : March 2nd, 2021-10:23
My wristbone is quite large and prominently sticks out of my wrist. Thus, the watch does rub against my wristbone and does so uncomfortably.

Yes. The Ulnard Styloid Process. The 1-2 o'clock position of the watch case seems to rub against the USP, pinching the skin with the sharp corners of the watch.

 By: patrick_y : March 5th, 2021-19:53
Are you a doctor? If not, you know anatomy unusually well! And is it the Ulnard Styloid Process or is it the Ulnard Dome that is the wristbone? I never really remembered. Fortunately I'm not a medical doctor. I only have a doctorate in spending money!

Wearing your watch against the bone?

 By: joshsx : March 6th, 2021-01:26
Do you wear your watch further up the arm so that the sides (or 1 o clock) of the case press against the bone? My watch rests on the protruding wrist bone, so the bracelet links flow gently around it.

I have the steal version

 By: Martltime : March 6th, 2021-12:13
Not had that problem so far. Wears pretty comfortable.

News to me...

Everyone’s situation is different but I find mine to be among my most comfortable watches. So much so that I’m considering another. Kent ...
