Rules: Postings must be an ad announcing an intent to sell, buy or trade. Full item description and photo(s) must be posted within the message here, not as links to other websites. Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price. Commercial dealers are limited to three unique posts per day. [More...]
: The Rolex Milgauss was designed to meet the demands of the
: scientific community and is capable of withstanding magnetic
: fields of up to 1,000 gauss. 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 — the first watch of its kind. Hence
: the name of the watch, mille being French for thousand. The
: Milgauss became known notably as the watch worn by scientists at
: the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva.
: The watch comes complete with Box and Papers.
: Price: $5300
