Super Rare €430,000 Rolex Day-Date 40 Green Emerald Platinum Watch Hands-On - by David Bredan - a unique encounter & a ton of breathtaking photos on aBlogtoWatch.com "To this day, Rolex still makes some extremely rare watches. And when you encounter one, things start as unassumingly as a green box, different from the one most of their watches come in, with a Rolex crown at '6 o'clock.' You might agree that this is the typical presentation of a watch built The Rolex Way..."
Rolex Milgauss - Created by Rolex in the 50's for scientists who regularly worked around highly magnetic machinery. Even made a special version for CERN scientists with no radium on the dial that could potentially interfere with their measurements. Basically, the original nerd watch.
El espíritu y estilo de Milgauss se reconoce inmediatamente: La fiabilidad y precisión de un reloj mecánico convencional se ven alteradas por un campo magnético de 50 a 100 gauss. Rolex encontró la solución y en 1956 creó el Milgauss, primer reloj de su género. Como su nombre indica, resiste hasta mil gauss. Varios componentes clave del movimiento de la nueva generación de Milgauss están realizados en innovadores materiales paramagnéticos, incluyendo la espiral azul Parachrom.
ROLEX MILGAUSS Z BLUE WATCH: It was created in 1956 for engineers and technicians who are exposed in their work to magnetic fields which disrupt the performance of mechanical watches. It was designed to resist strong interference of up to 1,000 gauss, hence its name - mille being French for thousand – while maintaining its performance and precision as an officially certified chronometer.
