Rolex Milgauss 40mm blue watch replica 116400GV is an interesting timepiece in the Rolex series. This timepiece was first introduced for scientists and engineers in 1956, and its nomenclature is derived from “mille” and “gauss” (the latter is a magnetic measurement unit)-literally 1,000 Gauss.
Milgauss had two iterations in the 1950s and early 1960s-Reference 6541 and 1019. The latter was produced until 1988, but was discontinued due to the unpopularity of the model. Today we will take a look at this Rolex Milgauss replica 116400GV—a matte black dial with colorful markings and a green bezel.
Case & Dial
The Rolex Milgauss replica watch is constructed like any Rolex watches – robust yet handsome. The 40mm timepiece straddles between being a tool watch and a rather versatile timepiece – suitable for both casual and more formal occasion. The Oyster case is pretty well-finished, as usual, with a myriad of brushed and mirror-finished polishing techniques.
Fitted to the timepiece is Rolex’s signature Oyster bracelet, which completes the look of the watch. Its reasonable case size and user-centric design means the Milgauss is comfortable on the wrist. Our only qualm perhaps lies on the central link of the bracelet, which unfortunately makes it highly susceptible to hairline scratches due to its mirror-polished surface.
The more polarizing component of the watch therein lies in the dial and hands. The Milgauss replica is available in a series of dial colours (Z-blue and black; white has been discontinued), of which the electric sunburst blue dial – as seen above – is perhaps the most popular option amongst the trio. It is paired with a green-tinted sapphire crystal, dubbed the “Glace Verde” (literally translates to green glass). It was said that the green sapphire crystal so was difficult to manufacture that Rolex did not even apply for this particular invention. This particular glass sapphire crystal is both scratch and fade proof, and it is only exclusive to the Milgauss collection.
Complementing the dial are the stick indices, which are filled with Chromalight. For the black dial model, the indices for 3, 6, and 9 o’clock are in orange, which accentuates the theme of electricity rather well.
Another notable point is the brilliantly striking orange seconds hand and outer minute track, where the former is also intriguingly shaped in the form of a lightning bolt motif. The replica Milgauss script on the 12 o’clock position of the dial is similarly in orange as well. The combination is certainly bold, but it definitely stands out as a more unusual timepiece from Rolex.
It is worth noting that the Rolex Milgauss replica is powered by the brand’s internal Calibre 3131. This is a self-winding movement with a power reserve of approximately 48 hours. the caliber 3131 is only used in the Air-King 116900 replica and the Milgauss 116400 replica.
The caliber 3131 is developed to have anti-magnetic characteristics since it is originally developed for the Milgauss replica model. The Milgauss is made to withstand magnetic fields up to 1000 gauss, and therefore, it needed to be equipped with a caliber that could be subject to magnetic fields without losing its accuracy. And from this concept came the caliber 3131. The movement incorporates state-of-the-art technologies patented by Rolex to ensure resistance to magnetic fields.
In terms of design and aesthetics, this is probably one of the most unusual Rolex of the modern era. It is bold, confident, and perhaps a little playful. However, looking beyond the aesthetics, the Milgauss is still a true-blue Rolex replica timepiece. It is a well-built tool watch, and it is capable of performing whenever it is being called to task.
