The quesses you've heard are wrong.The numbers were small, certainly not hundreds per year. Originally, the platinum model came out in blue dialed only, which was IWC's "hallmark" for platinum. But the watch, announced at Basel 2002' came out just as Georges Kern became CEO in January 2002. he didn't like the blue and told product management to have a black dial platinum. That came out in a "soft launch" a few months later.Based on what I know of sales back then, even 500 total production, for all years, for both is too high. The allocation between dial numbers were never published.
The greatest IWC is the one that is inbound."
