Scientists and engineers cannot afford to wear timepieces that interfere with their work. In response to their need for an anti-magnetic watch, Rolex developed the Milgauss in 1956. It is the perfect wristwatch for those who work in research labs, power plants, and medical facilities where electromagnetic fields are known to disrupt standard timepieces. Today's Milgauss features a magnetic shield to protect the movement from interference up to 1,000 Gauss. Its unique styling includes a green sapphire crystal and a signature lightning bolt second hand.
Since the launch in 1956 the Rolex Milgauss has evolved not only in size but also shape and the ability to repel damaging effects of magnetism still remains to this day. Everything great about a normal Rolex watch is incorporated into the Rolex Milgauss.
This instantly recognisable watch remains true to the heritage which created it. the unique identity has evolved over time but some of the beginning features are still ever present. The clean lines and orange second hand adds a touch of style, shaped like a bolt to replicate the original model in all its glory. With a simple glance these watches are recognisable, making it a must for those who love to stand out with the very best and most unique pieces.
