The Rolex Milgauss is considered to be the timepiece for those who have a passion for the world of science and discovery. The European Council for Nuclear Research was the first scientific laboratory to confirm that this incredible timepiece is able to resist magnetic fields of up to 1,000 Gauss.
Aptly named from the French word “mille” meaning thousand, and Gauss, a magnetic field measurement, the Rolex Milgauss is a beauty. The face of this watch features clean straight lines, and an orange lightning bolt shaped seconds hand. The green colored sapphire crystal adds a subtle green hue around the dial, making this timepiece very recognizable.
The heart of the resistance to the magnetic interferences is the shield that protects the movement of the watch. The shield is made of ferromagnetic alloys-one fastened to the movement, and the other to the Oyster case. However, what is not visible to the wearer is the symbol for magnetic flux density, a capital letter B with an arrow, which is secretly engraved in this fantastic magnetic shield. Only certified Rolex watchmakers will see that symbol, neatly engraved in the watch.
