Rolex Milgauss Review

Rolex Milgauss

Introduced in 1954, the Rolex Milgauss is one of the most desirable models for all watch collectors. It is a unique model as it has been specially designed for people working in power plants and research labs. Resistant to a magnetic flux density of 1,000 gauss, this watch is meant for highly magnetic environments.

What Made Rolex Come Out With Milgauss?

Like its other special watches (Tool Models) such as Explorer, Explorer II, GMT-Master, Submariner, and Sea-Dweller that cater to people in specialized fields, the Rolex Milgauss was rolled out with an objective to serve a specific niche--those people who had to work amidst strong electromagnetic fields. As electromagnetic fields hamper the accuracy of normal watches, Rolex designed a special watch equipped with an appropriate defense mechanism to resist electromagnetic fields.

Features of the Rolex Milgauss

Rolex equipped this special model with a movement that contained anti-magnetic alloys and was also encased with an iron shield known as the Faraday cage or Faraday shield (named after physicist Michael Faraday). This shield provided a protective wall against external static electrical fields. Thus, it was the first perfect anti-magnetic watch with a magnetic intensity rating of 1000 oersted. This made Rolex name the model "Milgauss" derived from the French word mille, which means one thousand and gauss that means the unit of magnetic flux density.

Only two Milgauss models were created by Rolex as described below:

Model 6541: This was the first Milgauss model introduced in 1954. Its over-sized case, bezel, and dial were similar to that of the Rolex Submariner. It also featured leaf-shaped hands, a twinlock crown, a riveted construction Oyster bracelet, and a caliber 1065M movement.

Model 1019: This model was different from the previous model in that it exhibited a plain, smooth-finished bezel in place of the Submariner's bezel lookalike. Also, the name "Milgauss" was engraved on the dial under the 12 o'clock position, unlike in the previous model where it appeared just above the 6 o'clock position.

Over the years, many changes took place in the hands. The early leaf-shaped hands were replaced by the Mercedes-style hands with lightning bolt seconds. In subsequent years, they were again replaced by yet another new style: stick-shaped hands.

Nearly twenty years after this model had been discontinued, in 2007 Rolex decided to start its production all over again.

Currently Available Models of Oyster Perpetual Milgauss

Self-winding and waterproof to a depth of 330 feet, this unique Rolex watch is available in steel; black and white dials are the two popular dial options in this model. It comes with the popular Oysterlock bracelet with easy links. You will not find jewelry embedded on the bezel of the Milgauss as this model usually only features a polished bezel--although some Milgauss models use a beautiful green sapphire crystal.

Larry King And Rolex Air King; The Real Kings

Rolex does not have to toil at all for attracting people towards it. Such is the reputation of the brand which enjoys a large than life image that wherever it is, it simply gets a roaring ovation and thunderous applause. Rolex has established itself as one of the leading watch makers of all times. The watches made by this brand have been envied by lots of people all over the world with only a selected few going on to become their proud owners. The Rolex Air King has justified its name of being the ‘King’ in the domain of wrist watches, just like Larry King has justified that he is the reigning ‘king’ in broadcast media. Both Kings have this habit of pulling eyes towards them and cannot dodge attention irrespective of the place where they go.

Lawrence Harvey Zeiger, better known by his stage name Larry King, was born into a family with average means and lost his father at a very young age. This tragic incident made him lose all interest in studies and he started working in adolescence to support his mother monetarily. Larry started his broadcast career in Florida and became a radio interviewer in the 1950s and the 1960s. He slowly rose to prominence and became an all night broadcaster on national radio in 1978 and started gaining a cult following. He came to national attention when his television interview program Larry King Live was launched by CNN in 1985 and started airing daily. He is known to interview people from all walks of life and debates on various topics. His approach towards the interviewee has been lauded with a regular dash of humor.It has been said that Larry King has conducted more than 40,000 interviews in his career and has won numerous awards for his accomplishments. He has been honored with an Emmy Award, a couple of Peabody Awards and Ten Cable ACE Awards. King has authored a couple of books where he has described his experiences and life changing events that happened after he suffered a major heart stroke in the late 1980s. He has also been involved in a lot of philanthropic activities. He gave away $1 million to George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs and also aired a three hour special footage named “How you can help” when Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans.

Larry King is used to living life king size. The Rolex Air King has also justified its title by providing to its wearers benefits worthy of kings. The interface has been kept plain and the designs are exemplary. Simplicity has been retained in the watch with a dash of style which makes the watch a deadly package. All qualities of the Oyster Perpetual are there in this jewel and have been installed very meticulously. The Air King is a qualified chronometer that has been given a certification by COSC. The bezel of the watch is shining and the quartz markings have been highlighted precariously. The Oyster Clasp bracelet is very sleek and has everything for a spectacle in the making. The depth till the watch is completely waterproof is 100 meters and it comes decorated in 18 carat gold. The Rolex Air King is a ‘King’ in reality, just like Larry King who becomes a ‘King’ when he is on air.

The Rolex Explorer and the Rolex Explorer II

The Rolex Explorer and the Rolex Explorer II are two popular sport models that fall under the professional line of wristwatches. Sharing the same name, both these models are meant for real adventure-lovers.

Explorer and Explorer II: Satisfying Different Needs

The Rolex Explorer, successfully tested during the first human conquest of Mt. Everest in 1953, is a special watch designed for harsh conditions. It can comfortably withstand temperatures from -20 degrees to +40 degrees centigrade. On the other hand, Explorer II was specially designed for the speleologists (cave explorers), who work inside deep caverns for days on end. While working deep inside caves with no natural sources of light, it can be easy to lose track of time and even whether or not it is day or night. To solve this problem, Rolex designed the Explorer II. The extra 24-hour hand (initially orange in color but now red) on the Explorer II, when used against the 24-hour graduated bezel, helps to distinguish day from night by clearly differentiating AM from PM. The Rolex Explorer does not feature this special 24-hour hand or a fixed bezel engraved with a 24-hour track.

Another major difference between the Rolex Explorer and Rolex Explorer II is also technical in nature. The Rolex Explorer II is equipped with the “Jump Hour” feature not present in the Explorer models. This feature enables the wearer to set the hour hand forward or backwards in one hour "jumps" without disturbing the second or minute hands.

Similarities Between the Rolex Explorer and Rolex Explorer II

Although the Rolex Explorer II was designed specifically for speleologists and mountaineers, other adventure-lovers benefit from using this model as well, as it functions perfectly in all kinds of extremes. Some of the commonalities between the Explorer and Explorer II models include the following:

Both are made of solid stainless steel with no other options available.

Both are self-winding and waterproof to 100 meters or 330 feet.

Both feature a synthetic sapphire crystal like other Rolex models.

Both come with an Oysterlock bracelet with the safety clasp and Mercedes-style hands.

Mercedes-style hands have been introduced in the current versions of both of these sport models.

Like in other Rolex watches, both these models feature luminous Tritium fillings in place of Radium.

Although some basic features (as mentioned above) are common between the Rolex Explorer and the Rolex Explorer II, and are found in other Rolex models as well, these two models are distinguishable from each other in terms of both their looks and certain specific technical aspects.
