Rolex presents the new Oyster Perpetual Milgauss watch, showing unique and symbolic aesthetic features. The Milgauss, launched in 2007, is equipped with the first crystal crystal surface in the watchmaking industry. Now it combines electro-optical blue surface, reminiscent of the classic lightning-shaped second hand and the paramagnetic technical characteristics of the watch. Designed for engineers and scientists of the time. Looking through the green crystal mirror, you can see the electro-optical blue surface with attractive colors.
Advanced watches for engineers and technicians
Since its launch, Milgauss has maintained its position as an advanced watch. Introduced in 1956, Milgauss is designed for engineers and technicians working in magnetic fields. Magnetic force can interfere with the normal operation of mechanical watches, but this watch can withstand a magnetic strength of up to 1,000 gauss, allowing it to maintain the performance and accuracy of official timepieces. ‘Mille’ in French For a thousand, so the watch also got its name. This innovative anti-magnetic watch is not only famous for being worn by scientists at the European Nuclear Research Organization (CERN) in Geneva, but also known as a masterpiece of technological progress. Such a powerful magnetic force relies on a number of innovative technologies. The first layer of protection is the antimagnetic case that Rolex applied for in 1954 and was installed in an oyster case. This anti-magnetic case is made of ferromagnetic alloy, which wraps the movement and provides efficient protection. The second layer of protection is the balance swing assembly and the escapement. These two main movement components are made of innovative paramagnetic materials and have been developed by Rolex since the 2000s.
Oyster case waterproof and strong symbol
Milgauss’ 40mm Oyster case is water-resistant to 100 meters (330 feet) and is a solid example of reliability. The distinctive middle case is made of solid block 904L steel with extremely strong corrosion resistance. The triangular bottom case is screwed by Rolex watchmaker with a brand-specific special tool to completely seal the case. The winding crown uses Rolex’s patented double-lock double waterproof system, which is firmly screwed to the case. In addition, the mirror is made of scratch-resistant green crystal. Milgauss’ waterproof oyster case provides the best protection for a highly accurate movement.
Movement 3131: top paramagnetic precision timepiece
Milgauss uses a 3131 automatic mechanical movement developed entirely by Rolex. Like all Rolex movements, the Calibre 3131 has also been certified by the Official Swiss Accredited Timepiece. This certification is specifically awarded to precision watches that have been tested by the Swiss Precision Timepiece Testing Centre (COSC). This watch also uses Rolex patented components to ensure that the antimagnetic level of the watch matches the name of the watch. The escapement assembly of Milgauss is equipped with a paramagnetic escapement wheel made of nickel-phosphorus alloy. This device is made by UV-LiGA, a micro-parts production technology developed by Rolex. The balance swing component is the heart of the watch. It is equipped with Rolex’s patented blue Parachrom hairspring made of a unique niobium-zirconium alloy. It is not affected by magnetic fields and is extremely stable even in the face of temperature changes. 10 times higher.
Comfortable and safe oyster strap
Oyster Perpetual Milgauss is equipped with a comfortable and safe oyster strap, and a folding oyster buckle designed by Rolex. The strap is also equipped with a cleverly designed Rolex patented easy-to-adjust chain link system, which allows the strap to easily extend about 5 mm, making it comfortable to wear in all situations.
