Rolex’s Milgauss series was born in 1956 and was designed specifically for scientists. The most striking feature of this series of watches is the ability to accurately time in strong electromagnetic fields. However, the series has been discontinued for 19 years (1988-2007). The biggest difference between the Replica Rolex Milgauss series that was restored in 2007 and the previous models is that the case size has increased from the original 38 mm to the more modern 40 mm. Let’s take a closer look at some of the evolution of the Milgauss series since 2007.
The biggest difference between the Milgauss series that was restored in 2007 and the previous models is that the case size has increased from the original 38 mm to the more modern 40 mm.
The lightning-shaped pointer was originally a unique feature of the Milgauss series, but it did not play a big role in resisting magnetism. Therefore, the pointer of the ref series is replaced by the classic straight pointer. The Replica Rolex Milgauss 116400GV, which was resumed in 2017, has restored the lightning-shaped pointer and marked the lightning second hand with bright orange.
Rolex’s Milgauss has always used stainless steel because of its particularity. Starting at 116400 in 2007, Milgauss’ case and bracelet are made of 904L polished stainless steel. This makes the watch more resistant to scratching and corrosion.
Prior to 1988, Milgauss crystals were made of acrylic. Replica Rolex Milgauss 116400GV was revived in 2007, and the crystals became artificial sapphire crystals. Today, Milgauss is the only Rolex watch with a crystal of color.
The waterproof depth of the Rolex Milgauss 116400 has changed from the original 50 meters to 100 meters, which is a very significant improvement.
The Milgauss range has a single color and version, but when the model Milgauss 116400GV was introduced in 2007, this watch offers three different dials for us to choose from. It is worth mentioning that the 116400GV is the 50th-anniversary edition of the MILGAUSS series. The dial is black with white. There are white and orange luminous hour markers in the dial, and 3, 6, and 9 are shown in orange.
In general, the Rolex Milgauss 116400GV has an interesting history and unique style.
