DAVID YURMAN
The Classic Ceramic

Featuring a stainless steel and ceramic bracelet with enamel dial, David Yurman's popular timepiece is available in two sizes, black or white, and with or without diamonds. The versatile watch is also water-resistant to 30.5 metres.

 

 

 

 

AUDEMARS PIGUET
Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph

The first in its series to feature an all-ceramic case-middle and bezel, this sporting timepiece requires hours of sophisticated finishing work - the bezel alone takes eight more hours than the same part in steel. Durable ceramic is also used for the push pieces and crown.

 

 

 

 

 

RADO
Esenza Ceramic Touch

Made exclusively for women, this touch-controlled and fully ceramic timepiece draws on years of material and timekeeping technology. Electrodes can actually feel a fingertip - pressed or swiped along the case - through the gently curved ceramic case.

 

 

 

 

 

DIOR
VIII Grand Bal “Plume et Nacre”

Featuring a new smaller-calibre movement, the latest Grand Bal collection still boasts a functional openwork and diamond-set oscillating weight on top of the dial. The limited-edition "Plume et Nacre" model is made from black ceramic, diamonds, feather and mother of pearl.

 

 

 

 

 

CORUM
Golden Bridge Ceramic

The signature Golden Bridge gets a makeover with an all-ceramic case that requires a mastery of firing time to ensure exact sizing. The case is framed by four sapphire crystals, allowing 360-degree views of the baguette movement.
