| The Rolex Milgauss is one of Rolex’s most niched watches. Introduced in 1956, the Milgauss was designed as an anti-magnetic watch especially for those who worked near magnetic fields, such as medical facilities, power plants, and research laboratories.
It did become popular among people in scientific fields, and eventually, watch circles and even Hollywood, caught on. They may not need its magnetic resistance of up to 1,000 gauss, but its classic looks and quirky colors sure gained some famous fans.
