The Rolex Milgauss is designed to meet the specific requirements of the scientific world. The watch is resistant to magnetic fields up to 1000 gauss. The Milgauss was designed specifically for people who worked in power plants, medical facilities and research laboratories. Before the Milgauss was launched, scientists and other similar professionals ran into a serious problem: electromagnetic fields of more than 50 to 100 gauss would greatly interfere with the timing of a watch. This resulted in an inaccurate watch or they did not even wear a watch.
However, the launch of the Milgauss changed this. The watch was tested in the 1950 s by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). In the eminently best particle physics laboratory in the world, the Milgauss was found to withstand magnetic fields up to 1000 gauss. This was a huge technological advance not only for Rolex, but also for the scientific community.
With its many functions, the Oyster Perpetual Milgauss is a perfect tool for anyone with a passion for the world of science and discovery.
