Best High-End replica watches with Swiss Quality ETA movements.
Rolex is a pioneering brand in the watch manufacturing industry known for their patented “oyster case”. This is a unique feature of all Rolex watches making their products resistant to water and dust. They are also known for developing high-quality and durable timepieces that boast of exquisite craftsmanship and genuine materials. All their wrist watches are well-known names in the market such as the Rolex Datejust, GMT Master, the game-changing Sky-Dweller, and the science-defying ETA Rolex Milgauss.
The Oyster Perpetual Milgauss wrist watch is among the many exquisite creations of the Swiss watch company Rolex. It was first released in 1956 and continues to be considered a classic by watch aficionados everywhere. The earlier version is considered a vintage collector’s item that is sought after by many due to its rarity for having low sales when it was first released in the 60s. After 51 years, Rolex re-released the Milgauss wrist watch equipping it with modern features allowing it to stay current with the varying tastes of consumers.
The original Milgauss is oftentimes compared to another Rolex watch called the Submariner because of their many similarities, but it continues to stand on its own with its own powerful features that can match other watches with similar designs like the International Watch Company’s (IWC) Ingenieur wristwatch.
The Rolex Milgauss is known for its magnetic shield feature. It currently has a couple of versions which are the black or white dial with transparent sapphire crystal or the Glace Verte or GV which can be bought with either black or blue dials. The 2014 GV Milgauss features the popular Z blue dial and green sapphire crystal, the only Rolex produced with tinted crystal.
All current models are equipped with a spiral Parachrom that allows it to better withstand magnetic interference. It is made of Ferromagnetic alloys carefully selected and crafted by Rolex to create the perfect shield system that can effectively protect its perpetual and mechanical movement. It can be considered a magnetic shield perfect for individuals working in the scientific and medical fields who are always exposed to the effects of hi-powered magnets.
The GV Milgauss can withstand magnetic fields with strengths up to 1000 Gauss. It is also made from 904L steel, Rolex’s signature oyster case, and has a 40mm diameter casing. Its green sapphire crystal is also scratch-resistant making it all the more appealing. And as with all Rolex watches, the Milgauss is water-resistant withstanding pressure up to 100 meters.
Below is a comparison between Rolex GV Milgauss and the IWC Ingenieur. These two watches were released almost during the same time-frame and were both revived and revamped during the 2000s. Both wristwatches contain similar features that can withstand the power of magnetism. Let’s see how the GV Milgauss and IWC Ingenieur fare against each other with their respective features.The IWC Ingenieur is also a solid watch, to say the least. IWC was one of the first watch companies to create magnet resistant watches. Quickly after the release, Rolex immediately developed the Milgauss to compete with IWC’s creation, while also attending to the increasing demands of the public for wrist watches that can withstand magnetic interference. Both watches are created using a Ferromagnetic enclosure also known as the Faraday cage.
Before the 2013 release, the Ingenieur went through a number of changes and developments, but the heart of the watch still remained the same. It never lost the feature of magnetic protection, as its main purpose from the beginning was to cater to the needs of scientists constantly exposed to magnetism.
The Ingenieur can withstand up to 40,000 amperes, but unlike the Milgauss, the Ingenieur does not feature an in-house movement. It features an ETA 2892 movement while the Milgauss features an in-house 3131 movement. ET7A19SR. In terms of design, the Milgauss shows more authority as it can be easily recognized as a Rolex watch. The Ingenieur has a classic and understated charm that is still elegant and powerful.
Although the GV Milgauss is one of the more affordable Rolex watches in the 4-digit price range, it can still be a ludicrous price for some. Good thing there are online discount outlets selling luxury watch replicas or clones for many affordable prices that are easy on the pocket. Replicas allow you to still experience some of the features of the original watch depending on the price. Some watches start at 30 USD while other luxury watch knock-offs are available for a couple hundred of dollars -- a small fraction of the original price of Rolex wristwatches.
