Rolex Milgauss Watch. Our hunky actor’s third Rolex watch is a vintage Rolex Milgauss on a Crocodile NATO strap.
Why is it called a Milgauss? Well, those of you who are interested in watch history, will find the answer interesting. From wikipedia:
The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss is a highly collectible model introduced by Rolex in 1954 with the model number 6451. The Milgauss was designed as antimagnetic watch specifically for those who worked in power plants, medical facilities and research labs (like those in Geneva) where electromagnetic fields can cause havoc with the timing of a watch. The current model Milgauss is equipped with amagnetic alloy (Parachrom-Blu) hairspring and movement encased by a Faraday cage. The name Milgauss is derived from the Latin mil, which means one-thousand, and gauss, the unit of a magnetic field. This model is so named because it can withstand a magnetic flux density of 1,000 gauss.
