Sturdy and stylish; we all like the 1019 -especially with a black dial- whether you are into modern or vintage Rolex.
The Milgauss is one of the four legendary toolwatches introduced by Rolex in the 1950s, alongside the Submariner, Explorer, and GMT-Master. The Milgauss was one of the very first watches able to withstand intense magnetic fields, making it especially useful for scientists and engineers working in medical facilities, power plants, and laboratories.
Introduced in the sixties, the 1019 is the successor to the exceedingly rare 6541 and 6543 Milgauss references. The 38mm steel case with domed bezel gives the 1019 an elegant and modern look, even though the one we are offering was produced in 1979. The steel case is thick and even shows the original chamfered edges; just the way we like it.
During the decades of production, very few have been sold and with many different dial configurations. The black dials are the most rare and sought-after and we are extremely happy to offer one with an exemplary dial with all lumeplots still intact.
The watch sports cool cigarette hands with wonderful custard-colored tritium lume and a funky red-tipped arrowhead seconds hand that matches perfectly with the red font Milgauss text on the horizontally brushed silvered dial. The watch comes on the original stainless steel Oyster bracelet that is virtually stretch free.
