Rolex Milgauss 116400GV

The Rolex Milgauss was developed in the late 1950s specifically for the scientists at CERN whose wristwatches wouldn’t work in areas of high magnetism because the movement of most watches stops working when subjected to magnetic fields measuring around 70 Gauss.

This watch was specially designed to work in areas of up to 1,000 Gauss – hence the name ‘Milgauss’.

The recent Milgauss range has contained different models of which the ‘Glass Vert’ or ‘GV’ are the only ones still made.  The white and black dialled versions were discontinued a few years ago and have become all the more desirable and collectible since.

The simple design combined with the size of the case of the Milgauss lends it a solid feeling – unfussy and uncluttered with nothing superfluous – it’s just like a large, sporty Datejust.

This is a superb, barely worn watch bought in 2008 and complete with everything that came from the factory.

A great set complete with the larger Sports boxes, wallet, YRO booklet, Milgauss booklet, tags and of course papers it’s a stunner and a fantastic watch for those Rolex lovers who want something a bit different.

This Milgauss was serviced in 2020 by Rolex and has barely been worn since – it is supplied with over 18 months of the Rolex service warranty.
