Offered here is a very early Rolex Milgauss, Ref. 1019, circa 1967 (serial 1.6m). Introduced in 1956, the Milgauss was designed as Rolex’s answer to magnetism at the workplace, and was made for workers in power plants, scientific fields, and medical fields, where the magnetism of a watch would often be a disrupting problem.
This Rolex Milgauss is in great vintage condition. The case is unpolished with beautiful bevels, as it left the factory. The dial is in great condition, and shows light spots visible at an angle, consistent with the aging of silver sunburst dials. The original tritium lume is still present in both dial and hands, aged to an off-yellow color.
