According to the patent, texture-based zirconia components are commonly used as housings for electronic devices, such as electronic watches. In some cases, the textured outer surface of the zirconia-based part gives the outer surface of the housing a matte appearance that is not only resistant to scratches and abrasions, but also provides a specific “feel”, is easy to clean, or both Of. Or further, such a textured outer surface can be configured such that the zirconia-based component substantially retains its strength and impact resistance.
