Swatch is certainly no stranger to playing around with how they use plastics in the manufacture of their watches. They’ve done quite a bit with plastic and all the colors they’ve brought to wrists around the world. At the end of 2020, they introduced their BIORELOADED lineup, which brought some more eco-friendly plastic in. Now, they’re evolving that a bit further with the Swatch BioCeramic collection.
At first glance, the Swatch BioCeramic looks rather familiar, as it’s based on the Big Bold 47. Rather than just a straight plastic case, however, they’ve gone with a new material that’s 2/3rds ceramic and 1/3 bioplastic, plus a good dose of pigment (showing up in 5 distinct colors). This should give the watches a decidedly different feel, and hopefully make for a more robust watch.
We don’t have a lot of details as of yet, but the Swatch BioCeramic should be launching today, coming in at a rather affordable $120 (I doubt you’ll find a ceramic watch near that price before this one). You can check out all the details over at swatch.com
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
