The Rolex Milgauss is referred to as the researcher’s deluxe watch, as a Rolex watch that can stand up to magnetic fields approximately 1000 Gauss, as several researchers are revealed to greater fields than typical. The first generation developed in 1956, the name Milgauss stems from the French “mille,” suggesting “thousand,” as well as the electromagnetic field measurement of Gauss. The CERN, European Council for Nuclear Research was amongst the initial clinical institutions to verify that the Rolex Milgauss could resist the powerful electromagnetic fields. Other mechanical watches can be affected by an area of 50-100 gauss.


The ingenious guard that safeguards the new generation’s 3131 calibers mechanical movement is what offers the Rolex Milgauss its resistance to magnetic disturbances, noted by a special case back. Made of ferromagnetic alloys, this shield’s two parts are screwed to the Rolex activity, and afterward also, to the Rolex Oyster case. You are influenced by magnetic fields in everyday life, from office tools to low-grade magnets. While they are not damaging to your watch, the continuous exposure to magnetic fields can hinder the normal feature, as well as the precision of your mechanical movement using the hairspring.


As part of Rolex’s search for excellence, they are understood to be several of the most precise time-keeping mechanisms worldwide as well as the Rolex Milgauss is no exemption. The hairspring is typically made from ferromagnetic alloys, a material that is prone to modification from electromagnetic fields or shock. Rolex found this lack of integrity undesirable and devoted five years of research to develop the blue Parachrom hairspring. The new hairspring proved to be 10 times less vulnerable to shocks as well as untouched by magnetic fields, as it is made from a paramagnetic alloy, ensuring you the precision of your Rolex.
