THE SCIENTIST’S WATCH
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.
Several key components in the movement of the new‑generation Milgauss are made of innovative paramagnetic materials, including the blue Parachrom hairspring. These components were developed and are manufactured in-house using Rolex’s advanced technology and fully integrated manufacturing process that allows them to not be reliant on any external supplier.Read More
