Rolex Milgauss 116400GV Watch Review

Rolex Milgauss 116400GV Watch Review wrist time watch reviewsAs a research scientist with a passion for fine timepieces, I have always been on the lookout for the watch that would best match my work and life passions. If you also fit that category, then look no further than the Rolex Milgauss, and especially the unique anniversary edition reference 116400GV ("glass verte") with the green sapphire glass. It is a watch with a unique history that stands out from an all too common Rolex lineup and that was designed for scientists… Let's explore why that is.

Rolex Milgauss 116400GV Watch Review wrist time watch reviewsWhile I will not give you a full history of the Milgauss, I want to brush on the important highlights. The Rolex web site and various blog posts do a thorough job of documenting the history, in particular is one of the better ones I have found on its history.

In a nutshell, the Milgauss was introduced in the late 50's when electricity, electronics, aeronautics, and nuclear engineering was bringing about what we now call the technology and information revolution. As a species, we had just discovered the power of the atom, we were finally in a position to leave mother earth (albeit for short periods of time), and the amount of innovations around transmitting, storing, and transforming information, created a series of revolutions that would forever change mankind.

As a consequence of this flood of innovation, scientists (and generally everyone) were increasingly being exposed to magnetic fields. Not only from the instruments used but also from everyday appliances such as TV sets, radios, and the many new electrified appliances that were making their way into households. You don't need to know Maxwell's equations to know that an electrical current and a magnetic field are two sides of the same "coin" and that one can easily be converted into the other. The German mathematician and physicist Carl Friedrich Gauss was one of the first to explore this space and thus, in his honor, the measure of magnetic flux density is a Gauss. Today, other measurements like the Tesla and ampere/meter (1000G = 0.1T = 80, 000A/m) are more commonly used.
