The UK Greg Wrote:Since you have thrown ceramic, tourbie and repeaters into the equation, are tourbies (whether by IWC or anyone else) very troublesome if not worn in a genteel manner?

Nad Zakem Wrote:Hello Lutz,I have two ceramic cased watches and have owned both for at least a couple of years. Both have stood up to the wear and look like new.Have never dropped one to experience what any impact might do to the case.One is the 46mm Carlson LE Doppel and the other is a Panerai Radiomir case.I also had a ceramic bezel Big Bang for almost 6 years and the polished ceramic bezel looked like new!So, my personal experience with ceramic has been very positive and would highly recommend it to anyone.I hope this helps!

I also had a rare ceramic Da Vinci for a short time and had no problem.There's been two reports of some damage to ceramic (one broken) when dropped on a hard surface. It's anecdotal to generalize from that, but I doubt a tourbillon, repeater, or many other watches wouldn't suffer equally, even if differently.
