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.
