I find the word "bioceramic" to be mildly unsettling. Ceramic is, by definition, inorganic and generally doesn't go with "bio" except for root canal procedures and other unpleasant contexts. Just not the sort of thing I would associate with Blancpain, except maybe the "pain" part.

Marketing folks: can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em. At least it's not bonded at the molecular level. Nice enough watch albeit molested by the marketing buzzword folks. So long as the crystal isn't flame-fused it'll probably work out fine.

I think it's ceramic blended into the plastic. Not sure what advantage that would have, or how it feels - Dr. Smells has handled them.

This. Owners may disagree but surely these are Swatches with some co-branding rather than the alternative.
