Honouring science. Discover our range of pre-owned Rolex Milgauss watches and save thousands on this iconic timepiece. Created in 1956, the Rolex Milgauss was developed for scientists working in electromagnetic environments, with a ferromagnetic shield capable of withstanding magnetic fields up to 1000 gauss. With ordinary watches affected by a magnetic field of as little as 50 gauss, this was a huge leap forward for scientists, who are frequently exposed to high magnetic fields during their work. The watch’s resistance to magnetic interference made the Milgauss the timepiece of choice for scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, home of the world’s most powerful particle accelerator.
Instantly recognisable thanks to its orange lightning-bolt-shape seconds hand – a replica of the original design – the Rolex Milgauss arrives with a completely unique identity. Luminescent white and orange lines mark the hours, while a green sapphire crystal works to reflect light for optimal legibility. Although evolving in shape and size over the decades, the Milgauss stays true to its scientific origins, remaining a favourite amongst the leading experts in the field.
