    Fully Ceramic Watches

    Hi. Outside of a Hublot Big Bang, a few Panerai Luminors, and the Bulgari Octo Finissimo, does anyone know of any other high-end watch brands that make fully integrated ceramic watches - including case, bezel and bracelet? I couldn't find others but wanted to check here as well. Thanks...

    Zenith has a Defy El Primero 21 in full ceramic with a bracelet option. Ceramic bracelets are pretty rare, probably because the bracelet gets dinged a lot more than the watch.

    If you're willing to drop the bracelet requirement, there are a lot more options, Omega, Grand Seiko (aside from the pusher and crown), IWC, etc.

    Yeah agreed credit is due that they popularised the style.

    And they apparently did a fair bit of in house innovations on the materials and manufacturing aspects of working in ceramics

    Rado, if we’re counting Chanel as high end.

    I think people have listed almost all of them:
    - AP in full ceramic (Black or White);
    - GP Laureato;
    - Panerai tuttonero;
    - Chanel J12;
    - Bulgari Octo and Serpenti lines;
    - Zenith defy world primero 21;
    - Tag Heuer Carrera tourbillon (Heuer 02);
    - Hublot (both the classic fusion and the Big Bang including the Meca 10);
    - JLC master compressor diving (the squadra chrono has a titanium bracelet that is black to look like ceramic though).

    I do not believe Omega and Ulysse Nardin offer ceramic bracelets, but they have full ceramic cases.

    Hope this helps.

    Blancpain too

    Bathyscaphe, and Bathyscaphe Chrono both have ceramic models. They don't have ceramic bracelets, but the pin buckle and retaining rings on the NATO are ceramic (amazing NATO at that).

    Special consideration:

    Grand Seiko SBGC219 bracelet's center links are ceramic
