Platin Dresswatch

1930s

Beginning around 1900, platinum was used to create watches. Like most jewelry metals, platinum is often combined with other metals to help the metalsmith or jeweler accomplish his feats.

Another white precious metal, iridium, is often combined with platinum. It is extremely rare and hard and has a high melting point. The higher the melting point, the more difficult it is to work with, because jewelry making and design requires the metal to be melted and reshaped.

Why is iridium combined with platinum? It makes platinum even more resistant. High class platinum watches are usually made of 10% iridium and 90% platinum. You will then find the hallmark: "10 Irid. 90 Plat.".

Just like the hallmarking on this beautiful Jules Jürgensen on the back of the case.

The rectangular platinum case itself has a brushed face and a polished side - featuring a satined dial - all in all a fabulous preserved platinum dresswatch by Jules Jürgensen, Est.ed Copenhagen 1740.

This is an exceptionally sophisticated & elaborately made dresswatch for its time. Engineered with early pallet escapement and amazing movement performance. Comes to you with it`s original Box & Papers.
