Apple’s ceramic Apple Watch Edition Series 5 was only available in a glossy white finish, and a black ceramic version was never made available for sale. The high-end ceramic white Apple Watch Edition started at $1,249.
Apple promoted the ceramic casing as strong, light, and scratch-resistant, being four times as hard as the stainless steel finish. The “pearly, lustrous finish” was hardily resistant to scratches and tarnishing.
