Rolex watches were developed because of people’s needs. For example, divers need waterproof water meters, so Rolex makes Submariner. Racers need precise chronographs, so Daytona appeared, and so on. Of course, there are diamagnetic Milgauss produced for scientists to explore the world efficiently. This article will compare the first and latest replica Milgauss.
In fact, Rolex has so many series, why should I compare replica Milgauss first? Because Milgauss’s first watch has almost no similarities to a recent replica watch.
Why is Milgauss 6541?
Many people, including Rolex, have made the Milgauss 6541 the first watch in the Milgauss collection. But I still have to correct it. In fact, the first replica Milgauss was 6543 produced in 1955. But the number of 6543 is very small, only about 200. So this article follows the wishes of Rolex, making Milgauss 6541 the first watch.
Why have magnetic resistance?
Milgauss 6541 was produced in 1956. It was the first official mass production of Milgauss. Although it is the first model, it already has a magnetic resistance of 1000 Gauss. The movement of Milgauss 6541 is NO.1080, which is no different from the contemporary Rolex. So Milgauss’s magnetic resistance comes from the unusual case structure. This structure was made according to the “Faraday Principle” of 1836. In order to be able to wear a Faraday structure, Milgauss 6541 has a size of 38MM.
Details of Milgauss 6541
The 1956 Milgauss 6541 resembles a Submariner in that it has a black rotating bezel. The bezel is marked with Arabic numerals every ten minutes. The dial of 6541 is very special, it is honeycomb texture instead of flat. Another point is that all “Milgauss” are printed with bright red ink. The three, six, and nine o’clock positions are marked with triangles, and the rest are solid circles. Most importantly, a representative lightning-shaped second hand appeared from Milgauss 6541.
In fact, the Milgauss’ progress is very slow. Furthermore, Milgauss stopped production from 1988 until 2007. The Milgauss 116400GV currently on the Rolex website was announced in Basel in 2014. The replica Rolex Milgauss 116400GV is available in two models, with a blue and black dial.
The Milgauss 116400GV and Milgauss 6541 both have the iconic lightning seconds hand. Both watches use the “Faraday structure” to resist magnetic fields. It is also unexpected that Milgauss 116400GV magnetic resistance is still 1000 Gauss. The 1000 gauss diamagnetic ability was great in 1956. But today, Omega has produced watches that can resist 15,000 Gauss. Rolex’s 1000 is a long way from Omega’s 15,000. So Rolex wants to increase the sales of Milgauss, the most important thing is to improve its magnetic resistance.
The ceramic bezel has become a narrower, smoother steel bezel. In order to adapt to the trend of the 21st century, the size has been increased to the most popular 40M. The 12-hour mark is a solid rectangle. The baton-style hour hand and minute echo the square hour mark. The beating lightning seconds hand was changed to bright orange. The biggest difference is that the mirror is green sapphire crystal, which is why Milgauss 116400GV is added with “GV”. Rolex claims that producing this colored mirror is very difficult, so “GV” is the focus of the latest replica Milgauss. Then the movement. Milgauss 6541 uses a very durable movement No. 3131. NO.3131 movement has a waterproof depth of 100M and a 48-hour power reserve.
The first Milgauss 6541 is certainly not available, but it is very collectible. Some people don’t think it is necessary to buy Milgauss 116400GV without 15000 Gauss magnetic resistance, but if you like the design of 116400GV, I suggest you buy replica Milgauss 116400GV.
First and latest replica Milgauss is finished. The history of Milgauss is actually very short and simple. From 1956 to today, production has been suspended for more than 20 years. But Milgauss has been improving. I hope that the next Milgauss will have a stronger antimagnetic ability than 15000 Gauss. So Rolex don’t let us stay longer, don’t let us down.
