IWC SCHAFFHAUSSEN SOLID PLATINUM AUTO DATE CAL853 ULTRA RARE VINTAGE 60's
PLATINUM IN THE WATCH INDUSTRY: For watch producers and collectors; PLATINUM it is the Rarest, Purest, Most Precious, Most Durable with "Eternal Quality" of all metals with unique aesthetic attributes. Here are the noble metal's notable qualities. RARE: Platinum is by far rarer than gold. Only about 200 tons of platinum are mined annually versus 2500 tons of gold. To obtain only one ounce (28.35 grams) of platinum 14 tons of raw material must be extracted and processed from the earth. PURE: Platinum in the form used for watch cases is able to be worked at very high levels of purity versus gold. A platinum watch case or dial, has 95% platinum content versus 75% purity for 18k gold. PRECIOUS: Platinum is always more expensive than gold. In the past an ounce of platinum was almost three times more expensive than an ounce of gold. DURABLE: Platinum's density and weigh makes it more durable than other metals and very suitable for watch cases. Its specific gravity of 21.45 grams per cubic centimeter is higher than gold's 19.3 grams per cubic centimeter. An object made from solid platinum weights more than an object of the same size in gold. ETERNAL QUALITY: If a platinum piece is scratched, it does not lose any volume; the metal is merely displaced, Hence the metal's "Eternal Quality " ballyhooed by platinum promoters. RESISTANT: Platinum is resistant to acids and hypoallergenic. It is resistant to heat (its melting point is 1.772 C versus 1.063 C for gold). However these same durability qualities make platinum very difficult to work with in the production process. STAINLESS: Platinum does not tarnish or stain. BRILLIANT: Platinum is naturally white and has a unique brilliance and luminosity that does not require plating. It is elegant, restrained, natural color makes it unique and appealing to all.
