The Rolex Milgauss was specially designed for scientists who work close to electromagnetic fields. Scientists have long been plagued by the problem of electromagnetic interference disrupting the accuracy of their timepiece. A magnetic field of 50 to 100 gauss, which many scientists regularly encounter, is enough to put a watch’s timing out. As such, the Rolex Milgauss was designed with a shield that protects the watch’s movement from magnetic interference up to 1000 gauss.
Aesthetically, the Milgauss is very similar to the Rolex Submariner, but a few twists make the Milgauss true to its scientific name. The Milgauss is recognised for its orange second hand, shaped like a lightning bolt. Its dazzling crystal comes either in a clear or bright green sapphire.
The Rolex Milguass has a unique and fascinating history dating back to 1956. Because it was discontinued in 1988 and then revived in 2007, there are relatively few models available. Those on the market are highly sought after. With its innovative resistance, clean lines and sleek design, the Milgauss is prized model amongst Rolex collectors.
