What are ceramic watches?
Ceramic watches are watches utilising at least some ceramic in the band, case, or bezel. However, note that the ceramic material utilised in watchmaking is not the same material used to manufacture kitchenware, pottery, etc. It is a more durable material generally consisting of a combination of inorganic materials, non-metallic compounds, and pure elements that create a much tougher ceramic.
How durable are ceramic watches?
The claim to fame of watchmaking ceramics is hardness. Ceramic materials are harder than stainless steel and gold. They are also unaffected by ultraviolet light, meaning ceramics do not fade or lose their lustre over time. So yes, ceramic watches are among the most durable. The only downside is that ceramic can be brittle. An excessive impact could cause a ceramic case to shatter.
Do ceramic watches mark easily?
Ceramic watches do not scratch or otherwise mark easily. Again, this is due to the hardness of the material. Indeed, a good ceramic watch should go its entire lifetime without significant marks. Ceramic is definitely more scratch-resistant than gold, silver, and plastics. It is even more scratch resistant than stainless steel.
