Known as the “Scientist’s Watch,” the Milgauss is a timepiece designed to withstand magnetic fields up to 1000 Gauss. This magnetic resistance was confirmed by the CERN (European Council for Nuclear Research). The name is derived from the French word “mille”, which means “thousand”, and the magnetic field measurement called Gauss. The movement of the Milgauss is protected by an innovative shield. This shield is made from ferromagnetic alloys and is screwed down to the movement as well as the Oyster case.

 

904L Steel

Featured on the Rolex Milgauss, 904L Steel is highly resistant to corrosion and is critical to the chemical industry. Rolex uses 904L Steel because of its extreme resistance and its ability to be highly polish able.

 

The Hairspringrolex Hairspring

 As customary with Rolex and their strive for excellence and perfection, the Rolex Milgauss is considered to be one of the most accurate and precise time-keeping mechanisms in the world. A watch’s precision is related to the strength of its oscillator. Oscillators are typically made from ferromagnetic alloys, and are vulnerable to alteration from shock and magnetic fields. Rolex, striving for excellence, decided that this was unacceptable and thus began research. After five years of dedication Rolex created the blue Parachrom Hairspring. The Parachrom Hairspring proved to be ten times less susceptible to alterations caused by shocks. It is also made from paramagnetic alloy and thus is completely unaffected by magnetic fields. This mechanism, as a result of Rolex’s strive for excellence, guarantees the accuracy of your Rolex.

In April 2014, Rolex introduced the Electric Blue dial called "Z Blue" on the Rolex Milgauss.

The Easylink

The Easylink is an extension system created by Rolex. It folds out of the bracelet and allows a length increase of about 5mm. Rolex’s Easylink feature was invented to ensure maximum comfort as your wrist expands due to temperature and certain physical activity.
