Perfect for in the field or in a boardroom comes this sought after black dial stainless steel Rolex Milgauss reference 116400 that has such a distinctive look thanks to its "lightning bolt" sweep second hand. Introduced by Rolex in 1956, the Rolex Milgauss was designed for people who worked in an area of high magnetic field such as power plants and research labs where the magnetic filed could wreak havoc on the accuracy of the watch. To overcome this, the Rolex Milgauss was designed to withstand magnetic fields up to 1,000 gauss and is fitted with a Parachrom hairspring to resist magnetic fields and the entire movement is fitted in a Faraday cage. (The name Milgauss comes from the Latin word mille, which means one-thousand, and gauss the unit of a magnetic field). The stainless steel case Rolex Oyster case with the smooth high polish bezel measures 40mm across plus the Rolex screw down crown, and with the black dial and absence of a date and date magnifier window, the Rolex Milgauss has such a smooth and sleek look to it. Fitted on the Rolex Oyster band that gives it a great sports look, this all comes together to give the Rolex Milgauss a look that is perfect for day or night and dress or casual wear.
