Coloured high-tech ce­ram­ics make a big splash in the horol­ogy world.

Rolex Oys­ter Per­pet­ual GMT-Mas­ter II

An up­date of a model with a red-blue “Pepsi” bezel in Cer­achrom

– the brand’s reg­is­tered gold or plat­inum-coated ce­ramic – which was launched in 2014. The twist? That “Pepsi” came with a white gold bracelet; this has a fivelink steel vari­a­tion (in­spired by the ar­chives and dubbed the Ju­bilee) that lends this trav­eller’s watch a cool vin­tage ap­peal.

Omega Sea­mas­ter Planet Ocean Deep Brown Co-ax­ial Mas­ter Chronome­ter

A new au­to­matic ladies model from the brand’s sig­na­ture div­ing line. The ce­ramic dial and bezel come in a rich choco­late brown that’s set off with in­dexes in the brand’s patented 18K Sedna gold, re­sult­ing in one mod­ern yet so­phis­ti­cated num­ber.

Rado True Thin­line Colours

As recog­nised for their mono­chrome hues as their 4.9mm-thin pro­file (think two 50-cent coins stacked to­gether), these quartzpow­ered ce­ramic watches now come coloured for the first time. In mid­night blue, for­est green, cognac brown and slate grey, the mod­els re­call the pal­ette of Ver­meer paint­ings with the green be­ing a stand­out for its rare deep hue and pol­ished fin­ish.

Hublot Big Bang Unico Red Magic

Lim­ited to 500 pieces, it’s the brand’s first watch made of coloured ce­ramic – the in­tense crim­son hue is said to be more vi­brant and the ma­te­rial harder than con­ven­tional high­tech ce­ramic.
