Did Rolex discontinue the Milgauss?
Rolex launched a more colorful version of the modern Milgauss in 2014 – the Z-Blue dial, named for its electric blue dial coated with zirconium. Unlike the classic blue watches by Rolex, the metallic blue dial tends to be green depending on the light that hits it.
It is still all the same elements as previous GV models, but thanks to the blue dial, this has become one of Rolex’s most colorful modern models. Dial design aside, the current replica Rolex Milgauss model runs the same caliber 3131, a COSC-certified movement with anti-magnetic features such as the Parachrom hairspring and paramagnetic escapement wheel.
The Rolex Milgauss holds a special place in the brand’s catalog as its first anti-magnetic watch. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about the Rolex Milgauss. The Rolex Milgauss is a watch line that can resist magnetic fields of up to 1,000 gausses. Its resistance to magnetism also explains its name – Mille is the French word for thousand, and charm is measured in gauss.
Rolex watches are made with the finest materials and perfect craftsmanship to guarantee performance, durability, and beauty.
Scrutinize the watch body – especially the case, dial, crown, hands, bezel, strap, and clasp – if any element is not up to par, it is probably a fake.
The Rolex Milgauss has a sporadic history, so the things to look for when authenticating a watch will vary between vintage and modern models. It is recommended that you do your research beforehand to check that the details of the watch match the supposed characteristics of the model you have chosen.
Finally, the easiest way to avoid fake watches is to “buy from the seller.” Buy only from a reputable and trustworthy dealer like SwissWatchExpo, who can offer a guarantee of authenticity for their watches.
Rolex continues to produce the 116400 GV or glace vert model with green sapphire crystal coloring. It is in the market with a colored dial in black and Z-blue. The non-GV ref 116400 models are still available on the pre-owned market and are sought after by fake Rolex fans looking for a watch with a “wow” factor.
