The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss was designed with the scientific community in mind, making it one of the more remarkable Rolex models out there. Scientists and engineers find this watch highly useful, but Rolex aficionados and luxury watch collectors also love the striking aesthetic. Learn more about this incredible timepiece below.
The Rolex Milgauss was built for scientists, engineers and anyone who appreciates a tough and stylish timepiece. In the 1950s, many scientists and engineers working with magnetic fields would find their watches unable to function properly. In 1956, Rolex came up with a solution: the Rolex Milgauss.
With a shield made from ferromagnetic alloys protecting the movement from electromagnetic surges, the Rolex Milgauss is able to withstand magnetic fields up to 1,000 gauss. This also happens to be where the name is derived, combining gauss with mille, the French word for one thousand.
Although there were other antimagnetic watches at the time, they could seldom withstand over 200 gauss at most. Rolex collaborated with particle physics laboratory CERN to test this watch before releasing it to the public, eventually getting it to the level where it could reliably withstand that magic 1,000 gauss. This put Rolex far and above the best option for anyone working around magnetic fields. Once again, Rolex was unrivaled with its watchmaking ingenuity.
When you’re looking for exceptionally high-quality used timepieces, then come to BQ Watches. We stock antique, rare and vintage timepieces that are difficult to find elsewhere.
Here at BQ Watches, we pride ourselves on our ability to provide pre-owned watches that are highly collectible and highly sought after. Of course, we have newer models as well if you’re wanting to add something like that to your collection.
We’re never short on supply, and we always have enviable timepieces on hand. When you buy from BQ Watches, you’ll get to see the condition of the watch, the papers and box that come with it and everything else before making your purchase.

In addition to the magnetic resistance feature, the Rolex Milgauss also includes up to 100 meters of water resistance. But toughness isn’t the only design feature of the Milgauss. It also has an unmistakable design, not the least of which is a second hand shaped like an orange lightning bolt. Striking blues and greens also give this timepiece a very recognizable aesthetic. In short, the Rolex Milgauss is not only one of the most functional watches in the Rolex catalogue. It’s also one of the most distinctive. There’s no mistaking this watch when you spot it in person.
It’s no wonder that many want to wear the Rolex Milgauss on their wrist. The interesting design and striking colours make for an attractive timepiece that anyone can appreciate.
