Description

Rolex invented the Tool Watch. While Rolex always offered dressier watches like the Bubbleback, Datejust and Day Date President, they also introduced the Submariner, GMT Master and Explorer to explorers who actually required rugged and accurate timepieces. The Milgauss is the exemplar of tool watches, built for people who work around magnetic fields. Rolex gave scientists and researchers what they need with this case construction, which provides protection from fields of up to one thousand gauss (a measurement of magnetism). Ordinary watches’ timekeeping begins to be affected by magnetism at around 40 gauss. Also, the 1000 gauss is how the Milgauss got its name, as 1000 is “mil” and “gauss” is gauss.

Original stainless steel case with dimensions of 38mm diameter by 13.5mm thick. Case features original smooth bezel, plastic crystal and original screw down crown. The big story with the 1019’s case is the soft inner case and case back assembly that holds the inner case down firmly over the movement to protect it from magnetic fields. Case back has date code of II.67. Serial number is 1620XXX.

Untouched Rolex later black dial with luminova in perfect condition. Applied hour markers. Rolex frosted Milgauss hands with inlaid luminova also in perfect condition. Seconds hand has a red arrow at the end. The hands provide excellent legibility. The red ‘MILGAUSS’ is a great design touch that adds a lot of pizzazz to the look of this watch.

Original Rolex automatic caliber 1580 with 26 jewels beating inside. It's a slower beating movement, which you can see by the action of the seconds hand. Movement is clean and running and is a C.O.S.C. Certified Chronometer.

Rolex heavy link Oyster bracelet in mint condition with no stretch.

This Milgauss will be delivered in Rolex box.
