The Colourful Titoni Impetus Ceramtech Zr-02 (Incl. Video)

A new design, high tech ceramic and bright colours.

Few watch categories have seen such a surge in popularity as the luxury sports watch with its integrated design. Demand has skyrocketed, driven by iconic models but also by a number of new players… If the genre was once restricted to higher-end brands, the market has since expanded with more affordable options. For Titoni, it’s the  Impetus collection. The model now comes in a new design that is bold and more technical thanks to the incorporation of colourful ceramic. Meet the Titoni Impetus Ceramtech Zr-02.

Apart from the integrated design, this new Titoni Impetus does not have much in common with the previous version. This new colourful take feels bolder, more modern, and more technical, in particular with the use of ceramic. The soft curves have been replaced by a more elaborate and angular design. A geometric 12-faceted bezel tops the 41mm case. It is made of steel or DLC-coated steel paired with a colourful ceramic case ring with polished grooves. The crown is fitted with a ceramic insert engraved with the Titoni logo. Thanks to the screw-down case back and crown. the water-resistance rating is 30ATM / 300m.

The brightly coloured dial is embossed with a vertical line pattern that complements the dynamic design. The applied indexes and hands feature Super-LumiNova. At its periphery, the sloping flange comes in different colours. The minute track features numerals that alternate with those engraved on the bezel.

Turning the watch over, the Titoni Impetus Ceramtech is powered by the tried-and-tested automatic ETA 2892-2. This workhorse movement is precise and reliable and can be easily serviced if needed, providing a carefree experience. It runs at 28,800vph and offers 42 hours of power reserve. The date has a quick-set mechanism, and the hacking second allows for precise setting. It can be seen through the caseback with its gold-plated rotor with a laser-cut Titoni logo. Although Titoni has an in-house movement, this ubiquitous tried-and-tested calibre has probably been chosen to offer a more aggressive price.

The Impetus Ceramtech comes with a rubber strap matching the colour of the ceramic and a stainless-steel bracelet with a folding buckle and a fine adjustment system. A practical interchangeability system allows you to change the personality of your watch in seconds – with no tool required.

The Titoni Impetus Ceramtech comes in a variety of colourful iterations for the case, dial and strap. The watch we had for review combines Argentina blue ceramic, black DLC steel and yellow details. Overall, it is quite bold and thus potentially polarising, but it looks good. The price is CHF 2,700, which seems quite competitive for a watch with a Swiss-made ceramic case.

  1. I love the boldness of this scheme, but ultimately my issue with ceramic watch components is that they look a little too much like plastic.
