The Rolex Milgauss 116400GV was originally designed as an engineers’ watch, with a Faraday cage to protect the watch against magnetic fields. While the modern Milgauss doesn’t really set itself apart from other Rolex models in terms of anti-magnetism, it is a tribute to Rolex’s history and a unique offering in the lineup from an aesthetic standpoint.
The Z-Blue whose price we’re looking at today was originally released in 2014, and has a striking sunburst blue dial with contrasting orange lightning-bolt seconds hand. The market price has increased significantly over the last 3 years, and it now trades comfortably above its retail price of $8,300. Would you take this over a more traditional Rolex?
