History of the Rolex Milgauss

The first Rolex Milgauss was introduced by this luxury watchmaker in 1956. Although prototypes of the
Rolex Milgauss were said to be created in 1954, the first official Rolex Milgauss was the Reference 6541.
The Reference 6541 has a 38mm case, black dial, and luminous plot and dart indices. This watch
reference was produced for four short years before the next Rolex Milgauss hit the market.

The Rolex Milgauss Reference 1019 was released in 1960. This follow-up timepiece to the Reference
6541 featured many design changes. The Reference 1019 had a Rolex Calibre 1580 movement, 38mm
Oystersteel case with smooth bezel, and applied baton indices. Three dial options were available with
this watch model, including black, silver with no luminous, and silver. The silver with no luminous was
known as the CERN dial since there was no radioactive luminous used with it. The Reference 1019 had a
long production life, 30 years in fact, and was retired in 1988.

A more modern Milgauss was created in 2007 when the new Rolex Milgauss Reference 116400 was
introduced at Baselworld. The Milgauss Reference 116400 featured a 40mm Oystersteel polished case,
bracelet with polished center links, black or white dial, luminous indices and center hands, and a bright
orange lightning bolt hand. This Rolex Milgauss has a calibre 3131, which was a COSC-chronometer
certified movement.

The Rolex Milgauss Reference 116400 also had another extraordinary feature, not seen on any other
Rolex or any other watch for that matter, which was a green-tinted sapphire crystal. This eye-catching
crystal was created by Rolex watchmakers who added a green tint to their scratch-resistant sapphire
crystal. Another unique watch feature Rolex offered for its Milgauss watches in the following years was
a bright blue dial, known as the Z-Blue dial. When paired with the green-tinted sapphire crystal, the
combination was a lovely, finished product.
