Advantages of ceramic watch bezel
①Although ceramic is strong and looks heavy on the wrist, it is actually very light and can be comparable to aluminum in scale. The light weight of the material also makes the watch comfortable to wear. You don’t have to worry about your wrist being pressed down!
②Ceramics have a hardness different from any traditional watch metal, such as stainless steel or gold. It is considered scratch resistant and will show no signs of wear even after many years. Ceramics are also unaffected by the ultraviolet rays produced by the sun, which means that their colors do not fade. Many brands choose to use ceramics in sports and diving models because it can withstand chemical corrosion and is diamagnetic.
③Almost all ceramic watches do not contain any coating or metal. This means that even people with sensitive skin can still wear ceramic case or strap on the watch without worrying about the subsequent allergic reaction.
Disadvantages of ceramic watch bezel
Although ceramics are very durable and can resist scratches and common damage, they are not resistant to breakage due to their molecular structure. If the ceramic case falls from a few feet or more onto a hard surface, it is likely to break.
