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.
While I will not give you a full history of the Rolex Milgauss, I want to brush on the important highlights. The Rolex web site posts do a thorough job of documenting the history, in particular this post is one of the better ones I have found on its history.
In a nutshell, the Rolex 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 105.002 needs to be mentioned as well. There is actually no real difference between the last variation CK2998(-62) and the 105.002 except for the reference number.Omega changed the reference number syntax, which means getting rid of the CK identifier and 4 digit numbers. The 105.002 was actually made in a very small period of time (1962), before its successor was introduced (105.003). This makes the 105.002 perhaps even more collectible than some of the CK2998 models.
Often considered to be the second best thing when it comes to vintage Speedmasters, but a small confession has to be made here. I love this version actually a bit better than its predecessor. This particular reference number already looks a bit like the ‘Moonwatch’ with its black bezel and Alpha hands. Where the first Speedmaster had a bit of a military look in my opinion, this watch is a more subtle sports chronograph.There are quite a bit of variations in the CK2998, where the different styles of hands are the most important identifier. One of the most sought-after CK2998 models is the one with the ‘lollipop’ chronograph second hand.
Oddly enough, I’ve been offered 105.002 for quite a bit less money than a CK2998. Expect to pay approximately 20.000 – 25.000 Euro for a nice Speedmaster CK2998. When there is a box or/and papers as well, the price will be influenced. Don’t get yourself trapped in the tropical dial (discoloured dials, turned to a brownish color). Although some might think it gives the watches a nice cool look, do not pay too much extra for this ‘feature’. Versions that do add value are the so-called FAP models.
