12 Black Ceramic Watches For Every Budget



Black ceramic watches have been the in-thing for the last half-decade, with Audemars Piguet really pioneering the popularisation and democratisation of the contemporary material in watchmaking, in particular with the novel Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar in black ceramic. Beyond the esteemed maison that Audemars Piguet is, many watchmakers have themselves unveiled black ceramic watches ranging from Tudor to Omega and Hublot to Girard-Perregaux, amongst others.


Here are 12 exceptional black ceramic watches for every budget.



Tudor Black Bay Ceramic



The Tudor Black Bay Ceramic is the perfect entry point to the world of black ceramic watchmaking, bar none.



Zenith Defy Classic Black Ceramic



A great blend of details and design, the Zenith Defy Classic Black Ceramic should be one of the first names that come up when you're thinking of a great black ceramic watch to buy.



Omega Seamaster Diver 300m Black Ceramic



Now we're heading into some really serious and really interesting watchmaking, with the black on black Omega Seamaster Diver 300m Black Ceramic really proving tough to look past.



IWC Pilot's Watch Double Chronograph TOP GUN



The IWC Pilot's Watch Double Chronograph TOP GUN Ceratanium is a solid everyday type watch that flies under the radar while remaining poised and substanital.



Bulgari Octo Finissimo



The architecturally abstract Bulgari Octo Finissimo is a fine timepiece that is as virtuous as it is cool.



Girard-Perregaux Laureato Ceramic



Silky smooth and brimming with wonderful details, the Girard-Perregaux Laureato Ceramic is just spectacular.



Hublot Big Bang Integrated Chronograph



Give it a minute, you'll come around. The Hublot Big Bang Integrated Chronograph presents as one of the bargains of the century, especially considered its use of black ceramic and a genuine manufacture movement.



Zenith Defy Extreme Carbon



The writer's choice here is the brilliant Zenith Defy Extreme Carbon. A dream piece of mine that marries the worlds of truly high end movement manufacturing with contemporary materials and aesthetics.



Hublot Spirit Of Big Bang Black Magic



A black ceramic alternative to a six-figure priced Richard Mille, the Hublot Spirit Of Big Bang Black Magic is a special piece through and through.



Panerai Luminor Chrono Monopulsante 8 GMT Blu Notte



The highly technical Panerai Luminor Chrono Monopulsante 8 GMT Blu Notte is another one of those pieces that truly offer more than its price tag lets on. Granted, it does look like a bad ass piece, too.



IWC Big Pilot's Watch Perpetual Calendar "Rodeo Drive"



One of the most coveted IWC's on the planet, the Big Pilot's Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition "Rodeo Drive" is as much of a statement watch as it is a feat of engineering excellence.



Girard-Perregaux Laureato Skeleton Ceramic 



And finally at the upper end of the budget is the fantastic Girard-Perregaux Laureato Skeleton Ceramic. More than capable of going toe-to-toe with any other black ceramic openworked watch, the Girard-Perregaux Laureato Skeleton Ceramic is a very special piece.
