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
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...
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.

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.
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

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 ...
Wearing your watch against the bone?
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.
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 ...
