Trending Case Material in the Watch Industry: Ceramic Watches

What is the advantage of buying ceramic watches? Or watches with a ceramic bezel? Well, it's commonly known that most watch companies are experimenting with watch materials these days. From stainless steel to pink gold and from titanium to ceramic. Ceramic is a unique material and can be used in the case, bracelet, and the bezel of the watch.

Ceramic, the material that has been making waves in the world of timepieces, is not the typical ceramic you might picture. It's a high-tech, inorganic, nonmetallic, and incredibly durable material. Some watch brands take ceramic a step further by blending ceramic powder with various alloys to create a unique version of this material. For instance, Hublot has perfected its own version of ceramic, aptly named 'cermet,' by combining ceramic with 75% precious gold. The secret to its strength lies in the process where molten gold is poured into the ceramic under extremely high pressure, filling all cavities. Rolex, on the other hand, boasts its GMT Master 'Batman' with a Black/Blue bezel made of ceramic. Rolex holds the distinction of being the sole brand capable of producing two-toned ceramic bezels, and they've patented the process.

The advantages of ceramic in watchmaking are abundant. Firstly, ceramic is exceptionally scratch-resistant, belonging to one of the hardest classes of materials, which ensures your watch remains free from unsightly marks. Unlike some materials, ceramic is impervious to the fading effects of the sun's ultraviolet rays. It can also stand up to chemical erosion, making it a resilient choice for watch components. Furthermore, ceramic is anti-magnetic, ensuring that your watch's precision remains unaffected by magnetic fields. Its lightweight nature adds to the comfort of wearing a ceramic watch. Lastly, ceramic is a hypoallergenic material, making it an excellent option for those with sensitive skin. Explore our selection of ceramic watches below to experience these advantages firsthand.
