Description

Hey guys this is Kevin from JazTime.com and today we'll be reviewing the Rolex Milgauss reference number 116400GV. We'll be going over the price, dial, bezel, case, crown, bracelet, clasp, and we'll talk about the movement towards the end of the video. So, as of May 2017 you can get this watch at a authorized Rolex reseller for $8,200, or you can get it at JazTime.com for as low as $7,200. So before we move on to the dial let's get a little bit of history of where the Milgauss lies. So, specifically the Milgauss was first developed when technologies were still advancing, as technology like advanced magnetic fields became more of a thing and general household appliances like TV's and radios and such. Magnetic fields don't actually harm human beings but they do have an effect on watches as watches use balance wheels and hairsprings to regulate the movements. The magnetic fields can actually affect those balance springs and hair springs and cause the watch to run a little bit slower or a little bit too fast, basically just messing up the timekeeping of the watch. That's where the Milgauss came in. Rolex decided to develop the watch that was resistant to those magnetic fields. So, how they did that is that they actually used... well first of all for the dial, as we move on to the dial, the dial has no actual openings, no apertures, shown dates or anything, they wanted it to be as enclosed and encased as possible. The case is actually made up of two different... a two piece case. One is a magnetic shield and then the oyster case sits on top of that, but more about that later. So let's go ahead and jump right into the dial. So the dial, we have the black dial. One thing to point out with the Milgauss, the 116400GV, the GV indicates the sapphire crystal has this sort of green tint to it on the side which is actually very nice. It doesn't actually heighten in color or such, it actually keeps that nice green tone throughout. It contrasts very nicely with the black dial on the orange Milgauss name and the incredibly unique thunderbolt hand into the center. Another thing for the orange accents, at the three, six, and nine position we have orange accented illuminous hour markers. The rest are white index hour markers, they're all fashioned in eighteen karat white gold to prevent any tarnishing. All of the hour markers and the hands, except for the seconds thunderbolt hand, they're all luminous. They're all luminous. But one interesting thing about that is that the white hour markers will be a green glow in the dark while the orange accented will be a blue glow in the dark, so it gives a different little contrast in the dark which is pretty nice. Okay, besides that we have the Rolex crown at the twelve o'clock position, and for the dial configurations we have the black with the orange and then for the other configuration that this watch comes in is the blue, is the blue dial with orange and of course the blue dial has sort of a sun burst pattern, where as this is more just a flat, matte black. Okay, so let's go ahead and move on to the bezel now. For the bezel we have a smooth dome bezel, very simple bezel, high polished, gives a nice shine as this is not really a sports watch it's more for dressy occasions. So we have this nice shine coming from high polished dome bezel. From the case we have 9040 steel. A 9040 steel case which is a 40mm in diameter case which is from my index finger to my thumb here. The case itself is high polished on the sides. High polished on the sides or rather, on the lugs of the case. On the side, high polished as well, and because of it using the... you know being a watch to prevent any magnetic fields from affecting it, we have a thicker case as it's made with the two cases as I've explained before. So it will sit a little higher on the wrist but it should still fit under suit coats, dress coats, very nicely, very easily. The high polished pattern is very nice throughout the sides of the bracelet. Same thing on the other side we have that high polished along the sides as well. The Rolex crown with the Rolex logo, which is the crown. The crown is very simple, screw down to unlock double water proofness. Double water proofness system crown. As this is not a sports watch there is no crown guard protecting the crown. The crown unscrews counter-clockwise, pops out to the first position which is the head winding position and only has one other position which is the hand setting position in which you can set the watch bi-directionally. Of course that will stop the thunderbolt hand or the hack movement, so you can adjust the time precisely to an atomic clock online or your iPhone. You can set it down to the exact seconds and have really precise time keeping. Of course, press the crown back in, start set hack movement again, and you always want to make sure you want to screw the crown nice and tight against the case as this keeps this watch's water resistance up to 100m or 330 ft. Okay, moving on to the bracelet now. So the bracelet, we have the oyster bracelet. Oyster bracelets are bracelets made out of a three piece link, specifically for this one as I mentioned it is not a sports watch, we have a nice high polish going down the center of the bracelet on to the clasp itself right there, and it patterns throughout very beautifully. We have satin brushed, satin brush finish steel on the side, for the nice contrast through that high polish. For the clasp, for the clasp it's just a simple folding oyster clasp, as shown. Pops out with the clasp plate, it has the Rolex name embossed onto the clasp plate itself there. The feature of the clasp is the easy link which allows for adjustment of the bracelet for 5mm increments forward or backwards. I can show it. Let's see here. See the little indentation right there. Fortunately as the name says its easy link, it's actually not that easy to adjust the clasp as you have to have a tool that presses the actual pin as you can see from these little pins here, you have to press them inwards and then adjust it to these little indentations there. It's still nice to have but not as easy as the newer Rolex bracelets that have... such as the glidelock or the comfort extension clasp which is a simple snap on and the glidelock being a simple tug and snap. Alright, so let's go ahead and talk about the movement now. So for the movement we have the movement protected in this oyster case back. Like I said it is made out of a magnetic shield and then the case is additionally added on top of it as well, and that protects the movement inside from those magnetic fields as I have said before. The movement that the Milgauss uses is the in house made caliber 3131 manufactured by Rolex as a precision of minus two plus two seconds a day. It has the simple functions of the center hour, minute, and seconds hand with stopping at seconds as I've shown you before for precise time setting. The oscillators are paramagnetic blue parachrome hairspring and it winds by directionally via self winding via perpetual rotor. Now the power reserve of this watch is 48 hours. I mean you could put this down on a Friday evening, pick it back up on a Monday, or rather Sunday, evening. It should still be keeping time fine. Okay, let's go ahead and show you this watch on the wrist now. Okay. So there's the watch on the wrist. Absolutely beautiful black dial with that contrasting orange accent and the green sapphire crystal. Now the Milgauss is the only watch in the Rolex lineup that has that green sapphire crystal as you can see from the green tinted edges. Very beautiful. So if you're interested in this model or any other model for the lowest possible price, check our our website, JazTime.com. We have the lowest prices guaranteed.
