Rolex Milgauss Watch

As 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.

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 and various blog 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.

You also don’t need to know much about the inner workings of a mechanical watch to realize that a magnetic field is one of its sworn enemies. Briefly, mechanical watches (even the best ones) use a balance wheel containing a hairspring that is used to regulate the movement, it’s the watch’s heartbeat, if you may. Mess with the hairspring or balance wheel and you will end up with a watch that runs too fast or too slow… Therefore, in situations where the watch is exposed to a magnetic field, components of the watch can be magnetized and thus be disrupted.

The reliability and precision of an ordinary mechanical watch can be affected by a magnetic field of 50 to 100 gauss. But many scientists are exposed to much higher magnetic fields during the course of their work. Rolex’s solution was the Milgauss, created in 1956, the first watch of its kind. Hence the name of the watch, mille being French for thousand.

Rolex Yacht-Master 40 Watches UK

With the Yacht-Master 40 Everose with Oysterflex strap arguably stealing the show at last year’s Baselworld, luxury fake Rolex UK have taken the opportunity at this year’s event to add an Everose Rolesor gold edition to the collection. Also featuring a chocolate dial, the new Yacht-Master offers a distinctively softer colour scheme than the masculine matte-black dial and bezel of last year’s edition.

Striking to say the least, this black-and-gold version of the Yacht-Master defies conventional Rolex norms down to the “Oysterflex” bracelet in matte black. Available in 37mm and 40mm cases, the Everose gold timepiece is affixed to a matte black Rolex-exclusive Cerachrom ceramic insert with polished and raised black numerals and indices. The matte black dial is a first in the Rolex Yacht-Master collection. Power is sourced by size: the 37mm uses Caliber 2236, the 40mm, 3135. Both are mechanical automatic movements. The bracelet boasts a patented “longitudinal cushion” system for maximum comfort. The Oyster case is water-resistant to 300 meters, the case middle is milled from a solid block of Everose gold, and the trademark “cyclops lens” magnifying date window at 3 o’clock makes for clear legibility.

The matte-black Rolex Yacht-Master 40 proved to be a real show-stopper at Baselworld 2015, and the Swiss brand took the opportunity to introduce a new Everose Rolesor gold model to the esteemed collection at this year’s exhibition.

In fact, there is a case to be made that the new 40mm Yacht-Master is one of the few “full-sized” Rolex timepieces that appeals to women as well as men. This idea is reinforced by the introduction of the timeless Oyster bracelet in place of the sporty rubber Oysterflex strap.

Breitling Superocean Abyss 44mm Watch

The Breitling Superocean 44 is fitted with a sturdy thick case measuring 44 mm in width and 16.7 mm in thickness. Available on three different straps —leather Superocean, rubber Ocean Racer and rubber Diver Pro— or on the Professional stainless steel bracelet, this watch has all the right attributes to become a daily wearer and to be submitted to the daily abuse of any watchlifestyler. Robust, yet good looking, the Superocean is also built to last and withstand the abuse from all types of marine activities.

Actually, the 44mm Breitling replica watch is not too large, it can perfectly fit you wrist, the links of the bracelet can be adjusted to make it suit appropriately. With brushed casing, the watch will not easily get scartches. This Breitling replica features a black rubberclad diving bezel, which is uni-directional rotating, the height of the bezel makes the whole dial have a deep level, thick sapphire crystal also allow the replica watch to withstand a great pressure in diving.

Conceived as a diver’s watch, the Superocean 44 comes with a depth rating of 2,000m/6600ft. The dial is matte finished, well balanced with numerals at 9 and 6 o’clock and available in five different ‘Abyss’ variations —yellow, orange, red, blue, and white— with just a hint of color on the word ‘Superocean’, the seconds hand and the border around the date aperture.

Two Tone Blue Dial Submariners are a Classic Rolex

James Bond is the most famous wearer of the very first Rolex Submariner which had no date. He wore it in Dr. No, and the watch he had had no crown guard. We think it’s much older than the 5512. Today, you can get a nice Rolex Submariner 5512 for around $10,000 but if you pick a non-chrono which is the ref 5513 you can get it for around $4000-$5000 complete with papers and a box. Perhaps you can try checking your dad or grandpa’s drawers, maybe you’ll see one lying somewhere gathering dust.Our most loved vintage Rolex Submariner has a date feature, and it’s the reference 1680 model. It came out in 1967 when Rolex finally realized that the date window might come in handy for divers. This 1680 model is known as the Red Submariner. By the 1980s, the watchmaker began using sapphire crystals and eventually shifted to a newer kind of movement. They created a Submariner with the then highly sought after plexi crystal.

The latest Submariners carry plenty of the features of the older Submariner models and wearing them is a real pleasure. The ref 16610 is the one with stainless steel and a date but now there’s the all gold and bi-color watches and they have ceramic bezel, bulky lugs and enhanced clasp and bracelet.

The Green Submariner is a time limited edition to mark the collection’s 50th anniversary. But take note that Rolex is always known for being vague about years and production numbers so if you want to have the Green model it’s best to buy it now because at any time Rolex could stop its production.

The only way to know for sure is to take the watch into an Rolex authorized dealer or other high end watch shop and have them remove the case back and see what kind of movement is inside. That’s the only way to know for sure. The Two Tone Blue dial Submariners are a classic Rolex and are all but impossible to visually verify if one is real or not. Same for the Stainless Steel (SS) Black dial classic model 16610. You may not be able to tell a real one from a fake one unless you have the back removed and check the movement inside. If you’re going to try and buy a used Rolex Submariner on the internet, it is critical that you know who you are buying from.

 

THE NEW ROLEX OYSTER PERPETUAL AIR-KING WITH BLACK DIAL

The Rolex Air-King, for most of its very long history, was the simplest, least expensive Rolex, but also in some ways the purist’s Rolex. With no date, a 100 m water resistant case, screw-down crown, and chronometer certification, it had every essential attribute that makes a Rolex a Rolex, with no distractions. In 2014, however, it was discontinued, and its status as the entry level Rolex as well as the purist’s Rolex was taken in 2015 by a new version of the Oyster Perpetual. In 2016, however, the Air-King returned and it is emphatically not your father’s Air-King. With a 40 mm case, new “Superlative Chronometer” certification, complete overhaul to the dial, and the same arrangements for resistance to magnetism as the Milgauss, it may be an Air-King in name, but in the hand and on the wrist, it’s an almost entirely new watch.

The Black dial rolex oyster perpetual air king replica watch ref. 116900 features a dial very similar to that on the Rolex Explorer I ref. 214270 we reviewed here; but this time, including a white minute scale with white numerals. The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King ref. 116900 features a black glossy dial with applied hour numerals at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock.

The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King ref. 116900 is fitted with the legendary Oyster bracelet with satin-brushed finish. The bracelet features solid links throughout and is fitted with a folding Oysterclasp equipped with the Easylink system that allows the wearer to extend the last link on the bracelet by 5 mm.

The watch is waterproof to 100 meters and its movement is properly protected by its Twinlock screw-down crown and its screwed-in solid case back. The watch is fitted with a sapphire crystal with Rolex’s etched coronet at 6 o’clock. Perhaps the biggest difference of this clasp versus all other modern clasps on Rolex Sports models, is that the Rolex coronet —crown— is this time embossed on bas-relief —low-relief— opposed to being applied and soldered to the clasp.

In fact, it’s such a departure from what we’ve all gotten used to thinking of as an Air-King that I almost wish Rolex had named it something else. The retention of the Air-King name means that you have to struggle a little when you first see pictures of the watch – or when you start wearing it – to see it as its own thing, instead of through the veil of years of exposure to something else that had the same name. What is the same, however – Rolex being pretty good at not totally disrupting the connection of any of its watches to earlier models in particular, and to the basic design codes of the company in particular – is the Air-King logo, as if to reassure the skittish that underneath it all, the Air-King is the same purist’s watch you knew and loved once upon a time.

A Rolex Daytona Replica Watch

Image result for Rolex Daytona

The Rolex Daytona was introduced in 1963 and it was a timepiece that aimed to fulfill the needs of professional racing drivers. This didn’t keep the watch from getting a lot of attention from those who weren’t professionals and soon it became one of the models well known from Rolex. The watch comes with a lot of features and a whole new and interesting design when compared to other watches in the same category.

A Rolex Daytona replica watch in stainless steel is probably one of the most sought-after timepieces in the world and at the same time one of the most recognized and iconic watches. And thanks to great replica sites, now it is easier than ever to get your own Rolex Daytona. Forget about waiting lists and scary prices!

Many crave to own a high end timepiece because it is an essential accessory for both men and women. But while women have more options, for a man a good watch is a truly important acquisition. I know that realizing that the cost of a Rolex is out of your price range is not a pleasant feeling. Luckily, getting a Rolex Daytona replica watch that has a more affordable price comes as the perfect option. Crafted so well that people won’t even realize it’s not an original, this stunning watch will meet your wishes.

If you were to ask any true watch collector to name the most difficult to obtain and highly sought after luxury Rolex watches you can be sure that the Daytona is going to come up. The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona enoys a great status and almost cult-like following that not many watches can pretend they have.

Like the other luxury Rolex watches in Rolex’s Oyster Professional collections, the Cosmograph Daytona is designed to be a robust watch and its specific function is to measure and calculate elapsed time and average speed thanks to its chronograph registers and the graduated tachymeter bezel. The Cosmograph became such an icon in the auto racing competitions, that during the late 1960s it gained its nickname “Daytona” after the Daytona International Speedway.

I like the Rolex Explorer

Image result for Rolex Explorer

I like a Rolex to be clean and simple. That’s why I love the Rolex Explorer so much for example. Last year, Rolex introduced some beautiful Oyster Perpetual models in 36mm with amazing looking dials (White Grape, Red Grape and Steel grey). However, at 36mm they are considered small for today’s standards. Some men can get away with it, but I don’t belong to that group I am afraid. My 36mm Datejust gets hardly any wear because it looks so small on my wrists. A pity, as it is a beautiful timepiece. Of course, the Rolex Datejust II would be a perfect alternative.

Rolex Explorer history began when Tenzing Norgay stepped onto the summit of Mt. Everest alongside Edmund Hillary with a Rolex Explorer strapped to his wrist (although the watch did not yet bear this name). As one of the first watches to reach Everest’s peak, the Explorer quickly became synonymous with the extreme climb. In later expeditions, Rolex was always the official supporter, equipping climbers with their own Explorers, cementing the history of the Rolex Explorer as the watch of choice for mountain climbers and other adventurers.

In 1959, Rolex replaced the Explorer 6150 with the 6610, which had a more flattened back than the previous model. Then in 1963, this model was in turn replaced by the 1016. The 1016 was more water resistant than the 6610 and also had a new movement, the Cal. 1560. The 1016 stayed in production for 26 years, in which time it evolved quite a bit and eventually became the 14270, the Explorer II, in 1971. The history of Rolex Explorer II, like that of the Explorer, is laden with stories of adventure seekers using the Explorer II during their journeys.

The 14270 surprised Rolex lovers with its extreme variation from the previous model. The case and dial were very different, the crystal was sapphire, and the movement was Cal. 3000. Rolex fans missed the classic, sporty feel of the 1016, although they appreciated the more modern and elegant tones of the 14270. In 2001, Rolex replaced the 14270 with the 114270, which was Cal. 3130. The history of the Rolex Explorer and the Rolex Explorer II is full of adventurous stories and explorations.
