The ceramic retains the color and is scratch-resistant; this means the bezel will always keep its “brand new” look.
Ceramic is one of the hardest class of materials known meaning that engineering the material is extremely hard.
On the other hand, because it is so tough, it’s difficult to scratch.
Does ceramic break easily?
Ceramics are brittle because they’re loaded with irregularly distributed pores. Some ceramics, like bricks, have large pores. “The larger the pore, the easier it is to break,” Greer says. If you’ve ever broken a ceramic vase or some such, the break probably originated at a pore.
Is ceramic expensive?
Machining is generally very hard to do for most ceramics. It is perfectly normal that a ceramic case is more expensive than a steel or even titanium case. However, it will not likely exceed the cost of a gold or platinum case, as the materials used are not that precious.
Do watches scratch easily?

Do PVD watches scratch?
