Science and discovery have come together to create a completely new experience in the form of Rolex Milgauss. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss is the ultimate reference chosen by those who have a passion for science and discoveries. Introduced in the year 1956, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss was specially designed to meet the demands of the scientific community. This unique Rolex timepiece is capable of withstanding magnetic fields of up to 1000 gauss. After passing through a number of rigorous tests carried out by the CERN engineer, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss earned the reputation of being the perfect magnetic shield.
The strong shield of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss is the core reason behind its incredible resistance power to all kinds of magnetic interferences. The magnetic shield provides the adequate protection to the movement o the watch. The shield is made up of ferromagnetic alloys selected by Rolex. The shield is made of two components; one is screwed to the movement and the other to the Oyster case. Only the Rolex-certified watchmakers are allowed to see it, but the symbol of magnetic flux density â€“ the capital letter â€˜Bâ€™ with an arrow is engraved in this magnetic field. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual works in magnetic fields of up to 1000 gauss.
With its clean lines and orange colored seconds hand which is uniquely shaped like a lightning bolt, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss is recognizable at a glance. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss GV has a black dial with luminescent orange hour markers at 3, 6 and 9 oâ€™ clock interspersed with white hour markers. A green sapphire crystal with a twist of lime produces light reflections while preserving optimal legibility.Â Rolex always uses 904L steel for all of its steel watch cases. 904L steel is usually reserved for the chemical industry, where maximum resistance against corrosion is essential. 904L marries perfectly with the other precious metals used by Rolex. A super alloy 904L is extremely resistant and highly polishable.
A watch is only as precise as its oscillator is regular. Conventional oscillator hairsprings are made of ferromagnetic alloys, leaving them vulnerable to magnetic fields and shocks. After five years of research, Rolex created the blue Parachrom hairspring. Crafted from a paramagnetic alloy, it is unaffected by magnetic fields and up to 10 times more resistant to shocks. Historically, the blue color of the hairspring has been a sign of prestige reserved for only the most accurate timepieces. Establishing his name as the icon of alternative rock music, Eddie Vedder has created his own niche of rock music. As a distinguished alternative rock music icon all over the world, Eddie VedderÂ is an American musician and singer-songwriter who is best known for being the lead singer and one of three guitarists of the alternative rock band Pearl Jam. Eddie Vedder is also involved in soundtrack work and contributes to albums by other artists. In 2007, Eddie Vedder released his first solo album as a soundtrack for the film Into the Wild (2007). His second album, Ukulele Songs, along with a live DVD titled Water on the Road, was released on 31 May 2011.
