History
The Official Watch Rating Centre in Bienne gave a Rolex wristwatch the Swiss Certificate giving it the title of the watch with the highest Chronometric Precision in 1910, making it the first wristwatch in the world to have been awarded this distinction.

Design
The M116400-72400_ Wht Ind Milgauss is a pioneer watch developed specifically for use by scientists and engineers. Its dial is white with the hour indexes marked with rectangles in orange, outlined with a black border. At the 12 o’clock position you can find the Rolex crown in all its beauty.  The hands of the watch are also unique, the second’s hand is shaped in the form of an orange lightning bolt. A sapphire crystal has been added to the design of this watch. This crystal is scratch proof –hence it is able to protect the dial from damage. 904L Steel is used to make the case of the timepiece. A smooth bezel made of the same 904L Steel adds an elegant touch to the timepiece. The bracelet features a regular oyster flat, three piece links durable construction. An Oyster clasp with 5mm easy link extension keeps the watch secure when worn. 

Features
The movement of the M116400-72400_ Wht Ind Milgauss is perpetual, self-winding and mechanical with a caliber of 3131. It is a certified Swiss Chronograph, a designation given only to those watches that pass the extreme tests of temperature and place. The dial of this timepiece has a Chromalight display with a blue luminescent fill that lasts up to 8 hours. A twin waterproof layer is created through the implementation of the oyster case technology. This along with a screw down back cover and winding crown ensures that the timepiece remains waterproof to a depth of 100 metres. It is the first anti magnetic watch developed by Rolex with special paramagnetic components. These components create a magnetic shield and protect the watch from magnetic components up to a 1,000 Gauss. 

History
The Milgauss by Rolex was first launched in 1956 to meet the needs of the scientific society. It was designed as an antimagnetic watch, so that the electromagnetic fields did not alter the accuracy of the watch. It was specifically made for people working in medical facilities, research labs, and power plants as it could withstand up to 1000 gauss of magnetic fields. These watches are known to be worn by the scientists of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), Geneva. In fact CERN was among the first scientific institutions to certify that these timepieces could actually resist the magnetic fields. The Milgauss watch was reintroduced in 2007 with several innovative components added to it.

 

Design
Featuring clean lines and a lightning bolt shaped seconds hand in orange; the Milgauss is easily recognizable. The 904L stainless steel- a highly corrosion-resistant, fine-grade metal is used to make the watchcases. The Oyster bracelet with its flat three-piece metal links helps you secure the instrument comfortably to your wrist.

 

Features
Made of ferromagnetic alloys, the magnetic shield of the watch is inside the oyster case, zealously protecting the movement. A capital ‘B’ with an arrow (magnetic flux density symbol) is engraved on the shield. Several novel paramagnetic materials are used to make the timepieces, including the blue Paragrom hairspring- developed and made in-house by the brand. The Blue Parachrom hairspring is insensitive to magnetic fields and 10 times more resistant to shocks. A self-winding mechanical movement, Calibre 3131 powers the Rolex Milgauss.

Given the fact that a harmful magnetic field can have detrimental effects on a mechanical watch, way back in 1956, the CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) set extremely high standards to address these harmful effects, and the Rolex Milgauss was born. This is a watch that can withstand a thousand (mille) Gauss and that's where the name originated!

This is a steel-over-steel watch that comes with a case size of 40 mm and a Sapphire Crystal glass material and an automatic movement that is capable of resisting water till a depth of 100 metres...
