- Internal Item ID: 709 (Desktop, Console, Old-gen console and Mobile versions)
The Platinum Watch is a high-tier watch. The Gold Watch is an alternative to it. When equipped in an accessory slot or simply held in the inventory, a clock will appear in the upper-right corner of the playing screen, revealing the in-game time accurate to the last minute. A minute of Terraria game time is equivalent to a second of real-world time.
The Platinum Watch (or Gold Watch) is one of the three parts necessary to make the GPS, with the others being the Compass and the Depth Meter, and as such is a required ingredient in crafting the Shellphone(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions). The Platinum Watch can also be used to craft the 1 Second Timer.
