This week we bring you our pressing topic of the moment straight from our reader-driven discussion boards! One Core77 reader has an interesting query about how ceramics are used in different industrial processes. bepster asks:
"I have been fascinated with ceramic for a long time...[I've] always enjoyed the look and feel of the material.
I am curious what the options and implications are for this material to be used in consumer electronics.

Braun launched a watch in '14. I ordered it (as it is also a great looking time piece) but I wanted to see if there are any experiences with this material here? And maybe guesses how this watch is made? I would guess it's molded in some way and then post CNC'd?"
Any idea as to how these ceramic watches come to be? Know of any other awesome modern applications of ceramics that are highly functional or totally unexpected and worth sharing? Share your knowledge with us in the comment feed below!
