With 50 years of the IWC Aquatimer now in the books, Swiss watchmaker IWC Schaffhausen is celebrating the milestone with the release of a brand new case material. Going with the name “Ceratanium,” the new material is a combination of titanium and ceramic and is finished off with a matte black paint. The combination of titanium and ceramic makes for a lightweight feel all while being scratch-resistant and supremely durable. While it sounds like an unlikely combination of materials, IWC CEO Christoph Grainger-Herr says the brand isn’t afraid to innovate and try new things: “Since we already had a pioneering role in the use of titanium and ceramic in the 1980s, we are now once again highlighting our expertise with materials by employing Ceratanium.”

Only 50 units of the special edition Aquatimer will be made available with a price point of 50,000 CHF (about $52,000 USD).
