Heavy, barely fits, but I love it
on June 21, 2011
Before purchasing this watch, I owned a Fossil white resin watch - it is designed to look like ceramic, but it is cheaper and lighter. I had a gift certificate burning a hole in my pocket, so I thought I'd check out the difference between ceramic and resin. Well, I was impressed. The ceramic watches are noticeably heavier, and have an entirely different feel on the wrist. They don't feel cheap and the clasp is slightly better designed/more sturdy. The density of the ceramic is noticeable: I don't see the metal watch parts & screws through the ceramic at all. Mind you, I'm sure I couldn't tell the difference between ceramic and resin from a distance, but up close, and on the body, it just feels better, more sturdy and substantial. All in all, worth the extra cost. I just wish Fossil would make more mini versions of their ceramic watches, since the regular versions are gigantic (and thus heavier). It should be noted that there is no way for you to adjust this watch. It just barely fits on my wrist, with not a lot of room to spare. I wish there was an extra link, but oh well. If you have a small or large wrist, this watch is not for you, unless you don't mind getting an alteration at a jeweler.
