The Rolex Milgauss 116400GV DLC-PVD has a modern, sporty style while retaining Rolex’s classic aesthetic. The Milgauss is instantly recognizable by its lightning bolt seconds hand, featured in this model in a striking orange. The bold black dial and durable black Oyster bracelet enhance the contemporary design and distinctive dial features. Just as the Rolex Submariner was designed to withstand exposure to deep waters, in the 1950s, Rolex created the first Milgauss timepiece in response to the failure of watches worn by engineers and scientists exposed to magnetic fields.
The first watch of its kind, the Rolex Milgauss — named after “mille,” the French word for one thousand, and “gauss,” the unit of measurement for magnetic induction — can endure magnetic fields of up to 1,000 gauss. The Rolex Milgauss has a deep scientific history and, since its invention, Rolex has collaborated with CERN — the European Organization for Nuclear Research.
Besides its magnetic resistance, the Rolex Milgauss 116400GV DLC-PVD is fitted with a unique green sapphire crystal. Rolex first unveiled this crystal in 2007, and it is notable not only for its green color but also for its fade and scratch-proof capabilities. The green crystal offers optimal legibility, a feature that is enhanced in the Rolex Milgauss 116400GV DLC-PVD by the striking black dial and unusual hour markers. Each hour marker is made from a luminescent material that has a gentle blue glow in dark environments. However, the markers at three, six, and nine are orange, matching the watch’s distinctive second hand, making reading the time at a glance even easier.
The Rolex Milgauss 116400GV DLC-PVD is fitted with a caliber 3131, a self-winding movement widely respected for its accuracy and reliability. One of the most impressive components of the caliber 3131 is the blue Parachrom hairspring, which is finer than human hair and up to ten times more precise than other hairsprings.
