    We have been able to secure another great and very rare watch from Rolex with a fantastic history behind it.

    This unworn example was bought new in December 2018 from a UK Rolex dealer

    It is waterproof up to 100 metres

    Accuracy will be excellent as this has an automatic chronometer movement tested to COSC standards.

    It has a 40mm case and a rugged oyster bracelet finished in brushed 904L grade stainless steel with polished centre links.

    Here is some further information on the Milgauss History.

    The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss is a wrist watch model introduced by Rolex in 1956 with model number 6541. The Milgauss was designed as an antimagnetic watch specifically for those who worked in power plants, medical facilities and research labs (like CERN in Geneva) where electromagnetic fields can cause havoc with the timing of a watch. The current model Milgauss is equipped with amagnetic alloy (Parachrom-Blu) hairspring and movement encased by a magnetic shield, most likely composed of a high magnetic permeability material (see Mu-metal or Permalloy). The name Milgauss is derived from the Latin mille, which means one-thousand, and gauss, the unit of a magnetic field. This model is so named because it can withstand a magnetic flux density of 1,000 gauss. Aside from its resistance to magnetic fields, the Milgauss’ most unusual feature is its orange lightning-bolt second hand, a unique feature in the Rolex lineup that was originally introduced with the 6541 Milgauss model.
