The Platinum Watch is the highest tier Watch along with the Gold Watch, however all Watches function the same. When equipped in an Accessory slot, a clock will appear in the upper-left corner of the screen, revealing the in-game time accurate to the last minute. One minute of Terraria game time lasts one second of real-world time. Like other accessories it can be created with modifiers. Like other watches, crafting the Platinum Watch requires a Table and Chair.


  • When accessories are worn that cause the time, position and/or depth to be displayed simultaneously, the position is displayed at the top, with the depth in the middle and the time at the bottom.
  • According to the watches, Daytime begins at exactly 4:30 AM and Nighttime begins at exactly 7:30 PM.
  • Icon mobile This item was removed from the mobile ports, since it won't work.

The exact time cycle of the day has four parts:

  • Dawn - 4:30 AM
  • Noon - 12:00 PM
  • Dusk - 7:30 PM
  • Midnight - 12:00 AM

Skeletron (and every other boss requiring nighttime) can be summoned between Dusk and just before Dawn starts (7:30 - 4:29), although it would be a waste to summon them right before Dawn starts as most either flee or kill you.
