In 1958, Rolex published a new concept of Milgauss watch. On request, Milgauss can still travel exactly as high as 1000 Gauss. Milgauss is named by the merger of Mille (1000) and Gauss, representing its ability to resist 1000 Gauss electromagnetic. The earliest Milgauss, numbered Ref.6541, is a typical movement table style.
“Green Glass” has just launched, as a hot style of a cargo is hard to find, once once soared to more than ten million Hong Kong dollars, even if the ordinary black surface have also reached six, 70,000 of speculation, and now return to the Pricing. But the antiquity of Milgauss due to the production of scarce or collection and speculation value.
The origin of Milgauss, and modern industrial electrification has a great relationship.
40 to 50 years of the last century, more and more scientists, technicians and even the general population exposed to the work environment is full of electromagnetic, such as power plants, large factories, railway locomotives and so on. At that time, people wear traditional mechanical watches in more than 60 to 70 Gauss (German physics and astronomer Carl Friedrich Gauss named electromagnetic force units) electromagnetic environment, will begin to be affected by electromagnetic influence, seriously affecting the accuracy of travel time , And when the electromagnetic strength of more than 1000 Gauss, the movement completely stopped motionless.
At this time, a watch to avoid magnetic interference will emerge as the times require. Then the watch engineers have designed two ways: one is made of a soft magnetic iron into a cover; another way, but from the internal solution to the problem of magnetic impact.
In 1958, Rolex (Rolex) published a new concept of Milgauss watch. On request, Milgauss can still travel exactly as high as 1000 Gauss. Milgauss is named by the merger of Mille (1000) and Gauss, representing its ability to resist 1000 Gauss electromagnetic. The earliest Milgauss, numbered Ref.6541, is a typical movement table style.
Beginning in 1962, the most well-known Milgauss Ref. If there is no outer scale of the 6541 is a rare transition, then 1019 is a formal launch of the version. 1019 in the year’s production is not large, for two reasons, one is too professional point of view, ordinary consumers do not follow, and the second is because the size of large-scale in the year is not very popular. After more than 20 years of production, Milgauss categorically discontinued, leaving a dusty memory for the world.
In 2007, at the annual Basel exhibition in Switzerland, Rolex introduced the Milgauss Lightning needle with a new gossamer, Ref.116400, a total of three, namely plain black, plain white and GV black, This GV black face Milgauss in the Chinese area, more dubbed the “green glass.”
“Green glass” design and production are very unique, from the ninety degrees positive observation of the surface, not aware of green, but from the side, the edge of the glass will be a green shed, especially in the interior, the kind of green As strongly.
Milgauss lightning pin with a 40 mm shell, the internal loading with a magnetic spring and paramagnetic material to create the escapement, numbered Cal. 3131 of the new movement.
And between the inside and outside, it was never appeared in the Rolex had appeared, called “Faraday Cage” locked magnetic shell. The inner shell is not only a screw-locked, decorated with symbolic magnetic density of the “B” of the second layer of the back cover, as well as covering the surface of the movement under a professional magnetic cover, Cover iron cloth shirt “.
With a single button Easylink Extension, Easylink Extension can be extended at any time strap, do not split the left demolition of the right, an action has been included to open the insurance clasp and strap; when the fingers pull the lock, first start the first group of small buckle, forced Opened, the strap was officially opened. This design is more convenient than the Double Lock, but also reduce the loss of insurance deduction.
Just launched, the “green glass” as a hot style of a cargo is hard to find, once once soared to more than ten million Hong Kong dollars, even if the ordinary black surface have also reached six, seventy thousand of speculation, but with Asia The financial crisis and the continuous increase in production, green glass has returned to the pricing. This fully illustrates the modern Rolex style in production, the risk of speculation is still quite large, but the antiquity of Milgauss due to the production of scarce, or a great collection and speculation value.
