Crafted for science enthusiasts, the Milgauss collection has been designed to withstand magnetic fields of up to 1,000 gauss. The black dial is in a steel case. It has been engraved with index markers and hour hands. The three link bracelet has been crafted with steel and has a folding clasp. The time piece has a perpetual, mechanical self- winding movement along with a magnetic shield that helps protect the movement. The time keeper has a case size diameter of 40 mm and it is water resistant to 100 m. It has been crafted with a scratch resistant green sapphire crystal.

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.

Rolex Milgauss pays homage to the name of Carl Friedreich Gauss,The multi-talented German mathematician and physicist whose contribution to the field of electrostatics is peerless to say the least.The famous Swiss Watch-maker has made this time-piece resistant to magnetic fields up to 1000 Gauss,thus making it a scientific wonder itself.The looks are also classy,and the thunder-bolt shaped seconds hand in bright orange captures attention immediately.The contrast of orange index-markers and green case against the black dial also works out very well.
