Milgauss

This watch is hard as steel. The Rolex Milgauss is made of a robust stainless steel alloy that is otherwise only used in the aerospace and chemical industries. This stable housing makes the Rolex Milgauss particularly corrosion-resistant, withstands a pressure of 10 bar and is particularly easy to clean. This is how the Swiss company's watch model retains its elegance and functionality in extreme weather conditions. However, this is not yet the highlight of this luxury watch from Rolex: the movement of calibre 3131, which was specially manufactured by Rolex, even resists magnetism.

Anti-magnetic watch with character

Developers and researchers in particular often come into contact with magnetic forces in their laboratories. These do not have to have the magnetic strength of a particle accelerator, as 50 to 100 gauss are enough to upset the delicate mechanics of a watch. Especially in our technical world of smartphones and computers, the wearer of a luxury watch must expect to be exposed to magnetism even in contact with everyday objects such as various devices or the fastener of a handbag. This can seriously confuse the time display on the wrist.

Protected from external influences of all kinds

Perhaps with some foresight, Rolex watchmakers and engineers tackled this problem in the 1950s: They wanted to develop a luxury watch whose fine mechanism was to be completely shielded from external magnetic influences. Rolex developed a watch made of an important component made of ferromagnetic alloys, which thus formed a magnetic shield for the interior of the luxury watch. The Swiss watch brand had this innovation patented in 1956 and launched the first Rolex Milgauss on the market in the same year. This watch model from Rolex already has its characteristics in its name: The Rolex Milgauss can withstand magnetic disturbances up to a strength of 1000 gauss ("mille" = French for thousand; "gauss" = unit of measurement for magnetic flux density) and maintains its chronometer-accurate accuracy. The statement that the Rolex Milgauss can withstand 1000 Gauss could already be confirmed in the 1950s by scientists of the CERN nuclear research institute in Geneva during their experiments (e.g. reference 116400 GV).

Modern high-performance watch with mechanical heart

The Rolex Milgauss has long since become a Rolex classic. Although production of the Rolex Milgauss was discontinued in the 1980s, Rolex seems to have continued to refine the watch model over the past 60 years, perfecting it further and reissuing it two decades after the supposed end of production in 2007 and 2011. The old watch models of the 50s to 70s have a high collector's value and are rarely found in online watch shops. Like many other watches, the modern Milgauss from Rolex can be bought online and is no more and no less than a modern high-performance watch with a mechanical heart that runs reliably even in extreme weather conditions. The coated hands and indices enable the time to be read precisely at various exposure conditions. This makes the Milgauss model from Rolex ideal for regular use in the fields of science, technology and research and is not only appreciated by scientists for its robustness and elegance.
