Tantalum metal is dark grey with blue overtones; it's nicknamed "black chrome." It's difficult to utilize in watchmaking because of its very high density, and extremely high fusion temperature of 3,800 degrees F. It's non-allergenic with tremendous resistance to corrosion, and it's as heavy as platinum; it takes approximately five times longer to make a tantalum case than it does to make a platinum case. This watch was introduced in 2009.
