MILGAUSS
 
Honouring Science

The Oyster Perpetual Milgauss, the watch par excellence of technological and scientific progress, reconciles strong magnetic fields and chronometric precision. Created in 1956 for engineers and technicians who are exposed in their work to magnetic fields which disrupt the performance of mechanical watches, the Milgauss was designed to resist strong interference of up to 1,000 gauss thanks to a magnetic shield patented by Rolex protecting the movement. Hence the name of the watch, mille, being French forthousand. The Milgauss became known notably as the watch worn by scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva.
