Black Dial 1019 Rolex Milgauss

1019-Rolex-Milgauss

The Milgauss is dead. Except, if you love Rolex, you’ll know the best core scientific Rolex offering was never called Z-Blue. It was called 6541 or maybe 6543. However, if you’ve glanced recent auction results to find the last great 6541 hammered at 2.5M, don’t lose hope. The 1019 has always been the awkward child…

‘CERN’ Dial 1019 Rolex Milgauss

Rolex-Milgauss-CERN-Dial-1019

A 1019 Milgauss with non-lumionus dial is more than rare, it signifies something really rather special historically. It is said that science advances in irregular leaps and bounds rather than consistent steps. Perhaps not by coincidence, the same could be said about Rolex. This particular Milgauss, in my opinion, is one of the most attractive Rolexes…

6541 Rolex Milgauss

6541-Rolex-Milgauss

Rolex’s storied professional line conjures images of Pan-Am, Comex, Hillary, spelunking, the Daytona 500, and, if you like 5s on your dial, the British RAF (Air-King). Yet there is one professional’s Rolex which often receives little or no mention. Many Rolexes today a marketed under the heading ‘rare’. The 6541 Milgauss, an antimagnetic scientist’s chronometer,…

CERN 1019 Rolex Milgauss

CERN-Dial-1019-Rolex-Milgauss

The 1019 Milgauss is the sole watch where I prefer a non-luminous dial to tanned tritium, because it signifies something really rather special historically. It is said that science advances in irregular leaps and bounds rather than consistent steps. Perhaps not by coincidence, the same could be said about Rolex. This particular Milgauss, in my…

Black Dial 1019 Rolex Milgauss

Rolex-1019-Milgauss-Black-Dial

Amongst the soon-to-be-discontinued Z-blue, CERN, and white-orange dialed Milgausses (Milgausss, Milgausses, or Milgaussi?), it’s easy to forget the that antimagnetic Wilsdorf family member can sport a more subdued tone. In black, the 1019 looks absolutely pedestrian in the best way possible; mostly because it is absolutely anything but. The level of significance this steel sports…

A 5513 with a PhD: the 1019 Milgauss

Rolex-1019-Milgauss

What you are looking at is not hype or hollywood-adjacent marketing. I like to think of it this way: a 5513 with a PhD. The Milgauss was created in the 6541 generation to meet the demands of scientists working in heavy magnetic fields. The level of significance this steel sports Rolex holds is, in my…

It is said that science advances in irregular leaps and bounds rather than consistent steps. Perhaps not by coincidence, the same could be said about Rolex. This particular Milgauss, in my opinion, is one of the most attractive Rolexes ever produced. I hold it on equal footing with issued military subs because, in one sense…
