As a result of experimenting with different materials, Breitling Ceramic watches are now a popular choice when it comes down to measuring robustness and the protective benefits of the maison’s many in-house developed movements. The ceramic incorporated into Breitling’s most innovative watch designs is inorganic, nonmetallic and solid, and can be found in the bracelet itself as well as the watch case. As an official UK stockist of Breitling ceramic watches, we share the same passion for innovation as the world-renowned watchmakers themselves. The designs are executed to perfection to ensure that each timepiece is fit and ready to face any challenge – a quality that has become the design ethos for each and every Breitling watch since the company’s birth in 1884, not just those of a ceramic nature.
Ceramic is a particularly difficult manufacturing method to carry out at Breitling. The material is pressed into the perfect case shape and then baked at extremely high temperatures. As the ceramic is cooling down from these temperatures, the pieces are milled into the desired shape and finished with a beautiful polish. It is at this stage where, if required, Breitling apply their black coloured coatings to the surface of the ceramic to give their timepiece a sleek look against the wrist.
There are many benefits to ceramic Breitling watches. Although with a look which creates the impression that the material would be heavy, ceramic is actually very lightweight. This advantage makes the Breitling watch easy and comfortable to wear for long periods of time – a requirement needed by many male and female Breitling lovers. Boasting a hardness that is unlike any other traditional metal used in watch manufacture, ceramic is scratch proof and even after years of wear on the wrist will show very little sign of scuffing or denting. Breitling ceramic watches are also unaffected by the ultraviolet rays produced by the sun, meaning that the gorgeous black colour on some of their innovative designs will never fade. By being able to withstand chemical erosion and with impressive anti-magnetic properties, ceramic Breitling watches are great for the sporty lady or gent.
The Breitling Superocean 44 Special watch has been developed with a sleek black steel and black ceramic case construction which emits an almost stealth-like look on the wrist. The timepiece creates huge presence with its broad bezel and striking white colored hour indexes and central hands. These details have been coated with a luminous technology so as to jump out from the dial in light-compromised conditions, allowing the wearer to easily access information at a quick glance through its sapphire crystal glass lens. This ceramic Breitling watch is powered via the peerless Breitling Caliber 17 which beats at 28.800 v.p.h and offers a 40 hour power reserve. Of course, to complete such as bold, daring look, the Breitling Superocean 44 Special watch has been fitted with a comfortable sporty rubber strap with perforated holes integrated into the design to allow for a constant flow of air against the surface of the skin.
