Footnotes

  • The name 'Milgaus' combines 'Mil', meaning a thousand, and 'Gaus' which is the unit for a measure of magnetism. A standard watch movement can withstand up to 70-80 Gaus, but any more than that and the workings are affected. Good watches can resist magnetic fields of between 60 and 70 Gauss, but the 'Milgauss' can keep its precision in magnetic fields of up to 1000 Gauss.

    This is a wonderful example of the Ref:1019. It still retains the Rolex box, papers, swing tag and booklet and is being sold by the original owners family.
