Kenneth Laycock Wrote:Dear Tom.Welcome.The white pawls that you describe are made of ceramic-a very hard and hopefully more durable material in the watch movement context. I can vouch for ceramic as a particularly useful material in many other applications.Its usefulness in the watch industry,I believe is fairly new,but by no means irrelevant.Regards.Kenneth.
