The Tin Watch is a low-tier watch. The Copper Watch is an alternate 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 hour. An hour of Terraria game time is equivalent to one minute of real-world time.
- According to the watches, Daytime begins at exactly 4:30 AM and Nighttime begins at exactly 7:30 PM.
- 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.
- Desktop 126.96.36.199: Now works while in inventory and time is displayed differently, on the right side instead of the left.
