Footnotes

  • The name 'Milgauss' combines 'Mil', meaning a thousand, and 'Gauss' which is the unit for a measure of magnetism. Traditionally, most hairsprings are made of Nivarox which is susceptible to magnetism which has a detrimental effect on timekeeping. Now the Milgauss watch balance spring is made with Parachrom-Blu, which is unaffected by magnetism. Any watch that can withstand 4,800 A/m is considered "antimagnetic". This equals to approximately 60 gauss. The new Rolex Milgauss is rated to withstand 1000 gauss because of its new technology in encasing the movement in soft iron, also known as a Faraday cage.
