The Bioceramic debuts as the case material of a 47mm
The mix of two thirds ceramic, one third bioplastic and a pigment produces a robust, lightweight material offering scratch resistance and a tactile ‘soft touch’ finish. The watches are complemented by colour-matched bioplastic straps and keepers.
The watch’s lack of a dial and steep internal wall pulls focus on the hands and the architectural structure of the case while showing off the simplicity of its quartz movement.
Swatch has developed the Bioceramic material to be compatible with its existing machinery and intends to make use it throughout its collection, although the brand states there is no intention to use it to entirely replace plastic in its watches.
