Our first ceramic watch, the Hublot Big Bang Blue Ceramic watch replica, has an obvious extra ingredient: blue pigmentation. The denim blue may not appeal to everyone, but it’s a prime example of how the aesthetic strengths of ceramic materials match the physical.
One of the many great properties of ceramics is the weight—or rather, the lack of it. At 3g/cc it is lighter than both steel (8g/cc) and even titanium (4.5g/cc), and combined with a rubber strap it is extremely comfortable to wear.
The pigmentation—along with the binder that helps the ceramic powder maintain its shape before firing—makes up around 3% of the finished material, and maintains its rich, vibrant colour almost indefinitely, unaffected by UV radiation from the sun.
