ROLEX Milgauss - Black Dial
The Rolex Milgauss is known for being the scientist’s watch, with anti-magnetic properties up to 1,000 gauss. It was designed for those working in power plants, laboratories and the medical field. The modern Milgauss, is one of the longest-standing watch models made by Rolex , but still remains one of the more under-appreciated models.
The Rolex 116400GV GV meaning Glasse Verte is so unique to Rolex and the Milgauss that no other watch company has managed to make a green coloured sapphire crystal. The glass is made in such a way that it is not just a coating, but the tint is present throughout the whole crystal so that when looked at the whole dial seems to glow. In addition to this you have the iconic orange, lightening bolt second hand. A symbol that signifies Energy. This reflects the scientists for whom the watch was made for, but also CERN, where the watch was tested.
Inside the Rolex Milgauss is the in-house Rolex 3131 movement, that while hidden from view, is superbly accurate and sparsely decorated. The power reserve is 48 hours and the 3131 movement can also be wound manually There is no date on the Rolex Milgauss since any cutout on the dial would interfere with the operation of the Faraday cage.
On the wrist this is one of those versatile watches you can just wear day-in and day-out. It is slim enough to tuck under a shirt cuff yet offers a bit more wrist presence than your standard Rolex watch. and casual enough to be worn at the weekend
