Bearable Lightness of Being
in the Watch Industry

Therese Umerlik 12/9/16

 

Ingenuity can be so refreshing, particularly when it improves upon the simple mechanical watch.

 

To achieve innovations, such as ceramic cases and self-lubricating silicon micromechanics, the Swiss watch industry is picking the brains of materials scientists, according to City A.M.

 

In the fight against scratches, a solution emerged with the fusion of 24-karat gold and porous ceramic substrate, resulting in Hublot’s Magic Gold.

 

Not only does ceramic resist scratches, it’s nice to wear, lightweight, and balances with people’s body temperature.
