    A tool watch made of platinum - and with a 7750 inside? Are they going to come out with palladium Black & Decker drills and rose gold Craftsman socket sets too?

    IMO Platinum is kind of a pointless metal. Expensive, looks like a 304. Soft in most alloys. Scratch magnet, unfortunately.
    Palladium is even worse.

    I agree with Ulckf. , a strange combo!

    Edit: I just saw it is brushed. Brushed Pt, who would think of that??

    I am sure the movement is nice. It deserves a nice, S/s case.

    .....and it's against forum rules for me to show you my tool.

    My favourite tool is 55.
    But I only use it once or twice a year. Wife complains I look like an Idiot. (sorry, Mentally challenged) That it sticks out too much, and the clothes can not cover it.

    Platinum for a tool watch? They might as well slap some diamonds on it. Horrible choice, they should've used either stainless steel, ceramic, or perhaps tegimented steel like Sinn. But a mechanical chrono with alarm is pretty interesting nonetheless.
