7 Exquisite Watch Bands for the Rolex Milgauss 40mm Reference 116400V

Rolex Milgauss with Orange Strap

Rolex Milgauss with Orange Rubber B Strap

The Rolex Milgauss 116400V is powered by an automatic 3131 movement and has a green sapphire crystal.  The green coloring of the crystal can be seen on the edges of the crystal as it connects to the polished steel bezel.

The coloring of the Milgauss is unique among Rolex timepieces.  The black dial is adorned with hour markers – mostly white except for the orange markers at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock.  The seconds notation is marked around the edge of the dial in orange.  The hour and minute hands are a unique extension of the luminescent hour markers – utilizing a similar rectangular shape as opposed to the typical sword shape of most Rolex hour and minute hands.  Even more surprising is the orange lightning bolt for the seconds hand.  Combined with the complimentary green glow of the Glace Verte sapphire crystal the orange-green combination provides a unique and sporty look.

The 40 mm case is smaller than some Rolex timpieces but substantial enough to fit nearly any wrist.  The most powerful feature of the Milgauss is the soft-iron faraday cage that helps it resist up to 1,000 gauss (Mille is the French word for thousand – giving the timepiece its name: Mille – Gauss).  The Milgauss was designed to meet the demands of the scientific community whose timepieces would often be affected negatively by magnetic interference. It became the standard timepiece for the European Oranization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva. The Milgauss is more than just a tool.  It is an exceptional example of Rolex timeless dedication to precision and the art of keeping accurate time under any circumstances.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual 34mm with Blue Watch Band

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual is a direct descendant of the original Oyster launched in 1926 – the first waterproof wristwatch in the world.  This pioneering spirit and the drive to build timepieces dedicated to sporting activities for men and women became the foundation upon which Rolex has built its stellar reputation.

The Oyster Perpetual retains the classic Oyster case and the simplicity and world renowned and easily recognized style.  The Oyster Perpetual may seem simplistic, but Rolex has given owners an extensive array of choices – from eye-catching dials of a variety of colours and five sizes – 26 mm, 31 mm, 34 mm, 36 mm and the 39 mm.  There are too many colors to list out here – but the palette ranges from a simple white or black dial to an dazzling grape or aqua marine – and just about everything else in between.

The waterproof case is guaranteed to a depth of 330 feet.  The case is crafted from a solid block of corrosion-resistant Oystersteel.  Oystersteel is made from the 904L superalloy used in high-technology and in aerospace designs.  Oystersteel provides an exceptional finish even in the harshest environments.  The Twinlock double waterproofness system keeps the high precision Rolex movement safe from water, dust, pressure and shocks.

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual featured an invention as early as 1931 which Rolex patented – a self-winding Perpetual rotor which transmits natural energy to the watch with normal wrist movements of the watch owner.  The most recent movement is a calibre 3130, featuring a Parachrom hairspring for resistance to shocks and temperature variations.  It is highly reliable and certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute. The Oyster perpetual comes with an Oyster bracelet with three-piece links, made from Oystersteel and an Oysterclasp.  All Oyster Perpetual watches are fitted with scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.

The Rolex Sky-Dweller reference 326135 is one of the most complicated and stunning Rolex timepieces.  The chocolate dial with pink gold Arabic numerals are seductive.  Yet, Rolex pulled out all the stops and created a 42mm fluted command bezel and folding Oysterlock clasp with Easylink 5mm comfort extension link – both in matching 18k pink gold.

Besides the standard hour, minute and second hands, there is a 24 hour display in the second disc providing GMT second time zone capability with the small red indicator at the top of the disk.  A date aperture appears at the 3 o’clock position under a cyclops lens on the sapphire crystal.  The most interesting feature is the month display which appears in 12 apertures around the circumference of the dial.  This provides an annual calendar function.

This timepiece comes with a black leather strap.  It is powered by a 9001 automatic movement which, with the Twinlock double waterproof screw down crown, provides protection to 330 feet.  The caliber 9001 was introduced in 2012 and is one of the most complex calibres ever created.  It is a certified Swiss Chronometer after having passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests.  Utilizing 40 jewels and beating with a frequency of 28800 the caliber 9001 provides an outstanding power reserve of 72 hours.
