There are many benefits to owning a ceramic watch. Expert craftsmen at Oris use these benefits to add elements of ceramic into their sleek watch designs. One of the most alluring features of ceramic is its incredible scratch resistant qualities, thus making it a great material to use in the manufacture of a luxury wristwatch. Ceramic features within an Oris watch can go years and years on the wrist and still look as good as new, thanks to this quality. Since Oris watches are renowned for being good value for money, gentlemen and ladies seeking a watch from the Swiss manufacture are certain to get their wear out of a ceramic watch, both in aesthetics, robustness and precision. Ceramic is also tough and hard, giving it the ability to resist cracks. Used a high-performance tools, some of Oris’ most iconic watches, like those from the Aquis collection are able to carry out their functions without being compromised under harsh external conditions.
Ceramic Oris watches also look incredibly stylish once dressed to the wrist. The lustrous shine of the material’s surface which looks slightly darker than that of stainless steel, can be enjoyed for its modern allure. Watches from Oris with ceramic bezels are coloured with a black coating for example, to create a sleek, contemporary look when dressed with smart attire or gym kit. Ceramic is also resistant to corroding and discolouration, allowing for the dashing good looks on an Oris watch to remain new and vibrant, even after years of wear. Since watches from the water-friendly Aquis range are broad and hefty looking on the wrist, their unidirectional rotating bezels have to match this demeanour. Oris not only choose to craft some of these bezels from ceramic to look stylish, but also to remain as lightweight as possible, thus these watches may look bulky, but can be worn for hours on the wrist without weighing it down.
Ceramic has a natural shine, and those watches with a coated ceramic bezel look glossy even without having to be polished or maintained. Smooth to the touch, no other rotating bezel would feel as beautiful under the fingertips as a ceramic crafted one. Oris show variation in their models from the Aquis range, like their Clipperton Special Edition, made in support of the mission to conserve the Clipperton Atoll. The watch’s deep blue hue mirrors the colour of the water around the atoll, whilst chunky baton hour indexes show the time clearly and precisely. The limited edition of just 2000 timepieces worldwide, has been fitted with a black coated ceramic unidirectional rotating bezel, with the first 15 minutes on the dial marked out in dashes.
The Oris Aquis 43.5mm watch with a black dial and steel bracelet is a sleek companion which oozes sophistication from lug to lug. The black ceramic bezel in this watch is a perfect fit for the black dial and luminous coated appliques. A sapphire crystal glass lens protects a date aperture at 6 o’clock from scratches and reflections from the light. A stainless steel bracelet which secures around the wrist with a folding clasp, continues a ruggedly handsome look across the wrist. Each link is crafted to mould effortlessly around the shape of the wrist to provide all day comfort.
