In this link, I don't find the answer... help me please , ok, the ceramic is more resistant to scratches, but, is not too delicated for a Professional watch?

It's not delicate when attached to the watch case. The benefits of ceramics are it's light weight and it's corrosion resistance. Similar to the common use of carbon fibers in the automotive industry today it needs a underlying framework of support to provide some form of tensile strength.

Corrosion impervious, that is what I always thought it to be.

Yes, ceramic is quite tough when it has a backing, corrosion resistant, color stays, almost impervious to scratching. Look how ceramic dinnerware holds up to a steak knife. Ceramic lasts forever, the only real enemy of ceramic is smacking a hard surface which is easier to do above water than underwater which is what they were made for.
