Milgauss Watches

The Rolex Milgauss was created in 1956, as a specialist watch for those exposed to higher magnetic fields. Designed to protect the movement, the Milgauss case is fitted with a soft iron core that repels the magnetic forces that would disrupt the watch's timekeeping, or affect the accuracy of the movement. The word Milgauss takes its name from the French 'millie' meaning thousand, and 'gauss' a unit of magnetic induction.
