It took IWC Schaffhausen five years of re­search and de­vel­op­ment to work on Cer­ata­nium, a ti­ta­nium al­loy. It’s as light and sturdy as ti­ta­nium and also pos­sesses the same level of hard­ness and scratch-re­sis­tance as ce­ramic. Cer­ata­nium boasts a matte black, ce­ramic-like sur­face, which gives any time­piece a stealthy and hand­some look. “Since we al­ready had a pi­o­neer­ing role in the use of ti­ta­nium and ce­ramic in the 1980s, we are now once again high­light­ing our ex­per­tise with ma­te­ri­als by em­ploy­ing Cer­ata­nium,” says its CEO Christoph Grainger-herr. The ti­ta­nium com­pos­ite makes its de­but in the Aqua­timer Per­pet­ual Cal­en­dar Dig­i­tal DateMonth Edi­tion “50 Years Aqua­timer”, which cel­e­brates five decades of the iconic dive watch.
