EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ROLEX MILGAUSS
In the ever-evolving world of horology, where precision and innovation reign supreme, Rolex has consistently stood out as a pioneer in the art of watchmaking. Among its iconic line-up, the Rolex Milgauss holds a unique position, with such a specific purpose in mind it is quite different from any of the other sport watches from Rolex. Rolex does not create watches just for themselves, they look around the world and seek to make a watch designed for a specific purpose and the most famous ones are their watches related to diving, racing and exploring but the field of science was something Rolex realised no one had paid attention to. That was when the concept of the Milgauss was first born.
Another interesting detail featured on the 1019 Rolex Milgauss was the beginning of the double hour markers. Two thin hour markers next to each other with a rectangular block of lume between them giving the double hour markers their distinctive look. Besides looks it was also for functionality, because Rolex always has a crown at the twelve o’clock position there is not enough room to put a double hour marker at the top. So, the double hour markers are situated at the three, six and nine o’clock positions. This means even in the dark you can tell which way round the watch is, a useful feature for working in labs late at night!
