Rolex Watch Craftsmanship – 950 Platinum, Swiss Watches Replicas

Precious and rare, platinum is considered the noblest metal and is particularly noteworthy for its silvery-white color and radiant luster. Platinum, with its exceptional physical properties, was a secret of the ancients, only to be revealed in modern times. Since then, platinum has maintained its position at the top, becoming the world’s most prominent and extraordinary metal. When combined with gemstones in jewelry, its unique properties create an allure that surpasses all other materials.

Platinum, a metal that can only be found in select regions like South Africa and Russia, is a member of the prestigious platinum group of metals. This group includes palladium, rhodium, ruthenium, iridium, and osmium. Paradoxically, platinum is also soft, elastic, and highly malleable, making it challenging to machine and polish. At Rolex, the skilled watchmakers who meticulously finish straps and cases are well-versed in platinum polishing, a testament to the metal’s value and the artisans’ expertise.

Gem and Soul

Although platinum is highly resistant to corrosion, its shimmering luster makes it unique. Whether it is a finished component or a semi-finished raw material, platinum shines with an aura of white light. For this reason, platinum is often the first choice among many metals for jewelers. Its color makes gemstones emit an unparalleled radiance, which is brilliant and dazzling.


Rolex uses 950 platinum, an alloy containing 950‰ (parts per thousand) of platinum; generally, ruthenium is also added. Rolex has added a platinum version to the most prestigious Day-Date model of the Oyster watch. Platinum is also used on the bezel and dial of the Yacht-Master Platinum Steel model and the bezel of the 18ct white gold Yacht-Master II.

Long history

While platinum debuted in the West in the 19th century in jewelry and watchmaking, the metal has a rich and intriguing history. In addition to the ancient Egyptians, who were aware of its existence, there are records of platinum use in pre-Columbian cultures. Unfortunately, it took a considerable amount of time for platinum to regain its status and recognition in luxury watchmaking.

The Spanish discovered this unknown white metal in South America in the 17th century, and its future value was unimaginable then. A century later, platinum was introduced in Europe, and its physical and chemical properties immediately attracted the interest of scientists at the time. However, it was in the early 19th century that pure platinum was successfully extracted. Due to its extremely high melting point (over 1,700°C), the complex transformation techniques used to produce platinum were not fully mastered until the late 19th century. They were subsequently used in jewelry and watchmaking.
