Rolex Milgauss Z-Blue Dial Review and Buying Guide

The Rolex Milgauss has always been the model for watch collectors who don’t really consider themselves “Rolex people”. Its design has always been more outlandish than its counterpart, and its party piece – the internal anti-magnetic shield – isn’t a feature you can interact with or observe any more than you can interact with a diving bezel or chronograph complication. Although largely overlooked for much of its history, the replica Rolex Milgauss is a truly unique watch among the various models that make up the brand’s current catalog. Among Rolex’s offerings, it is one of the few models that can be easily picked out of a crowd and is undoubtedly recognizable from a reasonable distance – especially when we’re talking about the Rolex Milgauss Z-Blue.
After a long absence from the Rolex catalog, the Milgauss was reintroduced to the line in 2007, followed by this particularly interesting Z-Blue dial variant in 2014. The latter is what we’ll be looking at today, as it’s one of the most interesting and quirky Rolex models out there, and one of the ones that really turned the Milgauss from an underrated classic into one of the many models that you simply can’t get at the retail level without spending time on a rather long waiting list. In this guide, we’ll learn the history of this unique anti-magnetic fake Rolex watch that was designed for scientists, not athletes, and then examine all of the key features that have made the Rolex Milgauss Z-Blue a standout in the brand’s current catalog. So, without further ado, let’s take a closer look!
First introduced in 1956, the Milgauss was a revolutionary timepiece developed specifically for the scientific community. With the rise of industry and the increase in electricity in the 1950s, watchmakers were faced with a new set of challenges in dealing with magnetism. Many scientists and individuals working in power plants or laboratories were exposed to intense electromagnetic fields on a daily basis that would significantly disrupt the timekeeping of their traditional mechanical watches. replica Rolex Milgauss
To help these professionals solve this new problem, Rolex created the Milgauss – a self-winding chronometer that can resist magnetic fields in excess of 1,000 gauss. As an important reference point, most “anti-magnetic” watches of the time could only withstand magnetic fields of 200 gauss. The Milguass thus represents a major leap forward in anti-magnetic watchmaking technology. If you are wondering where the name Milgauss comes from, it is actually a portmanteau of “mille”, which means one thousand in French, and “gauss”, which is the standard unit used to measure magnetic fields.
However, the Milgauss was discontinued in 1988, and when it was relaunched at Baselworld 2007, it was a completely different and thoroughly modern watch. This meant upgrading the model from the inside out – such as replacing the acrylic crystal of the new model 116400 with a synthetic sapphire crystal. 116400. Rolex even offered a green sapphire crystal on one of the new Milgauss replica watches – ref. 116400GV. In addition, the lightning-like seconds hand returned to the collection, this time in bright orange to match the various dial decorations of the new Rolex Milgauss watches.
Then in 2014, Rolex added a new blue dial to the Milgauss line – also known as Z-Blue. Not only did this completely subvert the look of the watch, giving it an unusual color appeal with the electric blue contrasting with the bright orange accents and green sapphire crystal, but it also helped to further distinguish this anti-magnetic watch line from the rest of the Rolex replica collection. With the Z-Blue dial, there was no way to ignore the Milgauss, and that’s where it started to go on its current trajectory of being completely unavailable at the retail level, trading on the pre-owned market for significantly more than its new price.

The Rolex Way of Celebrating Labor Day

rolex watches for men

The Rolex Explorer II seems like the perfect place to start if we’re talking about hard-working watches. This model is arguably the closest to Rolex’s roots, and it’s the one that best embodies the definition of a true tool watch. It’s big, strong, rugged, and mechanically reliable, so you can truly wear it every day, no matter what your profession.
As always, the option of the dial is straightforward, with only black or white available. Each brings a definite personality to the watch, with the white “polar” dial giving a clean, crisp look, while the black is more discreet and understated. An interesting element of the latter is its “phantom” hands, where the bottoms of all three main hands are also painted black to give the impression of floating.  Rolex replica watches
The Milgauss first appeared in 1956, stemming from the golden age of the replica Rolex. This era gave birth to the tool watch genre itself, with the Milgauss adding protection against electromagnetic forces, which made it aimed at scientists, technicians, medical personnel, and anyone who dealt with equipment that emitted strong magnetic energy.  63-1 66-1
It was pure bad luck to compete with some of the most iconic Rolex models ever made. In just a few short years in the mid-1950s, the brand also released the Explorer, GMT-Master, Submariner, and Day-Date – the closed environment of the laboratory could never inspire the same level of imagination in the face of watches built for adventurers, transcontinental travelers, deep-sea divers, and world leaders.
Another 1950s watch is the Turn-O-Graph, and although it is one of Rolex’s lesser-known models and is no longer in production, you could be forgiven for not having it on your radar. debuted in 1953, the Turn-O-Graph actually boasts a series of firsts, despite its “forgotten” status among the brand’s many iconic models.
Our choice is the white dial example, the Ref. 116400 Milgauss. The white dial Milgauss was only produced for about seven years before being replaced by the Z-Blue dial Verizon, something of a rarity for the company in fact. Rolex replica did not produce that many white dial tool watches, so that, combined with the limited availability in general, makes this particular Rolex Milgauss both an uncommon sight and a potential future collector’s item.

Most Popular Replica Rolex Prince Cellini Ref. 5441/9

rolex replicas

Rolex Prince CelliniOriginally created in the late 19th century and made an official federal holiday in 1894, Labor Day is a day when Americans can pause to recognize the achievements of our nation’s workers and honor their contributions to the nation as a whole. For many of us, it also symbolizes the end of summer and gives us an opportunity to celebrate with parties, barbecues, and street parades. However, a holiday dedicated to workers should be paired with an equally hard-working watch, and the brand that makes the strongest, most tireless watches is Rolex.
It seems only correct that the watchmaker that first brought us the concept of the tool watch should be front and center for Labor Day. So, we’ve listed some of our favorite replica Rolex watches that deserve to mark such a significant day.
The original Rolex Prince first appeared in 1928 as an elegant rectangular model known as the “doctor’s watch” because it had separate subdials to make it easier for doctors to time their patients’ impulses. Although it did its job well and could be seen on the wrists of some high-profile wearers, its expensive price tag and obvious Art Deco styling meant that it went out of fashion in the 1940s.  
More recently, Rolex has revived the Prince collection, introducing four stunning models in 2005 as part of its standout dress line, the Cellini. Often overlooked, the Rolex Cellini replica is a beautiful design with a classically refined aesthetic and is the brand’s only moon phase complication currently available.
The octagonal double dial has a slight overlap, the main chronograph face features a mix of Roman numerals and small stick indexes, while the second’s dial has a defined railroad edge. Off the dial, a beautiful circular guilloche pattern adds a textured motif and, almost uniquely for the brand, this level of finishing is carried over to the movement’s bridges, which can be seen by displaying the case back.
Although Rolex makes some of the best in-house movements in the industry, it does not flaunt its movements as many other manufacturers do these days, so Rolex’s movement decoration is usually industrial at best. Nevertheless, the Prince Cellini ref. 5441/9 is still a very chic watch that is a radical departure from the norm for Rolex and definitely worthy of any well-dressed doctor.

Why are pre-owned Rolex watches more expensive than new watches?

pre-owned Rolex watches

rolex watchesThere are many elements that affect the price of a pre-owned watch, so we wanted to give you an idea of what decides the value of a pre-owned Rolex watch. Keep in mind that not all pre-owned replica Rolex watches are more expensive than new Rolex models. If a used Rolex sells for more than its retail price, then it may be vintage, rare, or very popular. What’s more, the vintage models that usually have the highest value – sometimes three, four, and five times the retail price – are because they are in excellent condition despite their age. They have desirable features such as patina and production variations, and if you’re really lucky, documentation of their purchase and ownership.
Of course, there are rare and discontinued features on certain antiques that make them more valuable. Some vintage features that can make a watch more valuable are the coveted “Red Sub” text on the Submariner 1680 watch, the exclamation point dial, the beige dial, or the case with the pointed crown escutcheon. Some may consider these features obsolete, but first and foremost they are rare and vintage – and if your Rolex has them, it may be more valuable for it.   
When it comes to fake Rolex watches, rarity and vintage can go hand in hand – but not always. There are some Rolex watches that aren’t vintage yet, but are still hard to find – for instance, maybe their reference numbers didn’t last very long in production. There are a few things that make this watch a rarity, starting with that iconic green aluminum bezel. Not only was it the first Submariner to feature that color, but Rolex started making ceramic bezels after they discontinued the Kermit.
One of the biggest factors that make used Rolex watches more expensive than brand new watches is that most of Rolex’s top models are completely sold out at retailers. It sounds crazy, but you can’t simply walk into a Rolex store and buy the watch you want. Many models have waiting lists that are years long and even if your name is on the waiting list, there is no guarantee that you will receive your watch before that model is discontinued.
All in all, there are many reasons why Rolex replica watches are so expensive. While it may initially seem like a lot of money, once you take a glance at the face and consider the quality of the materials, the timelessness of the design, the legacy of over a century, and the fact that they retain their value, Rolex watches are very reasonably priced.

Simple Comparison of Rolex Batman vs. Rolex Hulk


A large number of Rolex watches have gained amazing nicknames since their launch, and among the various names ranging from athlete to soda flavors, there are many superhero nicknames, namely Batman and the Hulk. The Rolex GMT-Master II “Batman” and the Rolex Submariner “Hulk” with its blue and black ceramic bezel insert is the most famous replica Rolex watches with nicknames, but they are two completely different models – the Submariner is the diver’s watch and the GMT-Master II is the pilot/traveler’s watch. Which one is better?
Both Rolex watches have colorful design suites and all-steel construction, but they are actually not the same in terms of function. In addition, the Submariner Hulk is often seen as rather polarizing because of its bright green dial and bezel, while the Batman is arguably more versatile due to its more tonal colors. Today, we will explore this topic further by putting Batman and Hulk head to head in an attempt to answer the question of which superhero’s Rolex sports watch reigns supreme.   Rolex Batman 16613-921d-4
Both Batman and Hulk have 40mm stainless steel cases, rotating bezels, similar dial design with Mercedes-inspired hands, date indications, and luminescent hour-markers charts. Both come with sapphire crystals and the familiar Cyclops magnifying glass on the date window.
Of course, since these watches offer different functions, they also run on different movements. The Hulk Submariner is powered by the Caliber 3135, while the Batman GMT-Master II depends on the Caliber 3186 or the Caliber 3285, of which the newer Cal. 3285 offers a longer 70-hour power reserve. What’s more, although both models are equipped with a Triplock screw-down winding crown, the Submariner is water-resistant to 300 meters, however, the GMT-Master II is water-resistant to 100 meters.
Heading on to the strap, the Hulk watch comes with a three-link Oyster strap with a brushed finish and a Glidelock buckle that allows the diver to lengthen the strap to 20mm in 2mm increments to fit the diving suit. The first fake Rolex Batman 116710BLNR was only available on Oyster straps with polished center links; however, the Batman 126710BLNR was initially available only on five-link Jubilee straps but was later available on three-link Oyster straps as well. The Oyster clasp differs from the Hulk in that it uses the 5 mm Easylink extension system rather than the 20 mm diver’s Glidelock clasp.
However, the Hulk is a dive watch, which means its bezel can only rotate in one direction and it is graduated to 60 minutes to track immersion time. On the other hand, Batman is a GMT watch. As such, its bezel rotates in both directions and is marked with 24 hours to show the time in another time zone.

Make your Rolex Watch Clean

replica Rolex

Rolex watches are designed for everyday use and are built to last a lifetime with little maintenance required by the user. Like other mechanical products, Rolex requires regular maintenance of its precision movements, which replica Rolex recommends every ten years. However, this is not something you can do yourself – it can only be attempted by a professional watchmaker. As for what you need to do as a user, little more is required than daily wear and regular cleaning of its external surfaces.

Rolex Watch

In addition to maintaining your watch cosmetically, cleaning your Rolex is an important part of ownership, as it helps ensure that no environmental particles or chemicals adhere to the watch and negatively affect its various components or its functionality. For example, when you wear your fake Rolex for a swim in the ocean, be sure to rinse it off with water afterward to remove any residual salt, sand, and other debris that may have stuck to it. Residual salt and sand can act as abrasive, and rinsing your watch can help extend the life of its components and finishes.
With this in mind, rinsing your watch or submerging it in water should only be used on Rolex models with water-resistant oyster shells. Also, even if the watch you are cleaning is an oyster shell, you must first ensure that the winding crown is fully screwed onto the case before your watch comes into contact with water. Failure to do so may result in water entering your watch, which, depending on the degree of water intrusion, may require expensive repairs.
Depending on the level of cleaning required and the tools available, you can also remove the Rolex bracelet to make it easier to clean. Unlike some luxury watches fitted with matching metal bracelets, Rolex replica watches have bracelets that can be removed from the case. Some watch owners like this feature because it allows them to easily change the look of their Rolex by swapping out the bracelet for a strap.
Once the bracelet is removed from the watch, you will have access to the area between the lugs on the case and the inner face of the bracelet end links. Also, if you have an ultrasonic cleaner, you can put your Rolex strap in it to help remove dust and dirt from hard-to-reach areas – just be sure not to put the actual watch itself inside the ultrasonic, as this will potentially dampen the inside of your watch.
You can always wipe your watch with a soft cloth as a quick and easy way to remove dirt and keep it shiny. Polishing cloths may sound appealing, but the polish they contain often contains abrasives that can actually further damage the surface shine of your watch. Instead, you’ll want to use a material that is soft and free of additional cleaning chemicals and abrasives, such as a microfiber cloth or the wipes found in eyewear cleaning kits.

Best Rolex GMT-Master II Reference 116710LN Ultimate Review

It’s no secret that many Rolex watches perform very well as financial assets. You only have to look at the prices of the most in-demand models on the secondary market to see how valuable a fake Rolex can be as an investment if you choose the right one at the right time. The trick, of course, is to be able to spot which watches will appreciate in value in the future, and this is still a long way from an exact science. However, there are specific characteristics that can be used as indicators of investment potential, and the replica Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 116710LN possesses several of them. Rolex GMT-Master II
First, it is an example of one of the world’s most famous luxury travel watches, a watch that has truly become iconic in its 60+ year history. Second, the reference 116710LN has been discontinued, which means that there are a limited number of surviving examples, which will almost certainly push up the price. Third, this particular model has a special place in Rolex’s history as the first stainless steel GMT watch fitted with the brand’s proprietary Cerachrom ceramic bezel, and the last to feature a single color bezel.
All in all, there are many arguments in favor of the replica Rolex GMT-Master II 116710LN becoming a future classic. So, to help you decide if this particular model belongs in your collection, we’ve put together this guide to tell you everything you need to know about this unusual and important Rolex reference.
The model 116710LN 116710LN is not actually the first example of the new generation of six-digit Rolex GMT-Master II watches. This honor was bestowed by the 2005 Ref. 116718LN was introduced in 2005 and was made of solid 18k yellow gold and offered with a black or celebratory green dial to mark the 50th anniversary of the GMT-Master collection. It was followed by the two-tone Rolesor ref. 116713LN, introduced in 2006, and the stainless steel ref. 116710LN the following year. 116710LN appeared the following year, in 2007.
However, the steel model was the one everyone was waiting for, and it appeared at Baselworld 2007 in Rolex’s recently introduced Super Case. While it maintains the same 40 mm case diameter as its predecessor, the overall profile is significantly thicker thanks to thicker lugs and a crown protector almost twice as wide as its predecessor. The updated case proportions are Rolex’s response to the calls from many collectors for an increase in the size of its Professional Collection models, at a time when the trend towards larger watches was in full swing.
Complementing the bolder case is another addition to the collection, the Maxi dial, which first appeared on the green-bezel 50th Anniversary Edition Submariner in 2003, featuring larger indexes and wider hour and minute hands. Like the super case itself, the larger dial furniture is more appealing to some than others, but there is no doubt that it improves overall readability.

The Oyster Perpetual is not a Rolex Datejust watch

Because the official name of the Datejust is the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust, people sometimes think that the Oyster Perpetual and the Datejust are the same things. However, these are two different replica Rolex watch models. What is the easiest way to distinguish them? The Oyster Perpetual has no date display, while the Datejust always has a date display at the three o’clock marker, most often found under a Cyclops magnifying glass.
The “constant” part of the Oyster Perpetual name refers to the self-winding mechanical movement inside its water-resistant Oyster case. Oyster Perpetual watches always featured automatic mechanical movements. Although Rolex did produce quartz watches known as Oysterquartz, these watches were not Oyster Perpetual. Instead, they are actually special versions of the Datejust or Day-Date, and these quartz-operated models all feature a date window at 3 o’clock. Oyster Perpetual
As with almost all models produced by this iconic luxury watchmaker, the replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual is a great investment. This watch is effortlessly timeless and an undisputed classic, which means there will always be a market for it. In addition, like all Rolex watches, the Oyster Perpetual has an amazing ability to retain its value despite constant wear and use.
Currently produced Oyster Perpetual models sell for significantly more than their new retail price on the open market, while older Oyster Perpetual models are the perfect entry-level watch for new collectors due to their relatively affordable and stable price on the secondary market. IMG_4289
There are many ways to identify a Rolex Oyster Perpetual. However, because of the long history of this watch and the many different variants produced, it is the different generations of the Oyster Perpetual that you need to be aware of when verifying the authenticity of the Oyster Perpetual. We recommend checking out the complete “How to Spot a Fake Rolex” guide in our resource center for the most comprehensive and up-to-date tips on how to properly authenticate a Rolex watch.
Sadly, counterfeiters are becoming more and more capable of copying Rolex designs, and sometimes the only way to truly identify a Rolex Oyster Perpetual is to open it up and examine the components of its movement with a high magnification lens. This is why it is important to only purchase a Rolex replica from an authorized retailer or a trusted and reliable pre-owned dealer who offers a warranty and lifetime guarantee of authenticity for their products.

Instructions of buying Rolex Date Replica Watch

Rolex replica

While Rolex’s new offerings grab the headlines, it’s also useful to know which models in the current collection have been canceled. For example, the Rolex Date – a staple of the brand’s catalog since the 1950s – has now been officially discontinued.   Rolex Date
The Oyster Perpetual Date, or Rolex Date, is often overshadowed by its larger, more famous relative, the Datejust. However, the smaller case size is the sweet spot for many watch wearers, and we have no doubt that the Rolex Datejust will continue to be a popular choice on the pre-owned market, despite the fact that it is now discontinued. With that in mind, let’s dive into our ultimate Rolex replica watch buying guide and discover all that this model has to offer.
About a decade after the 36mm Oyster Perpetual Date just debuted in 1945, Rolex introduced the Oyster Perpetual Date in a slightly smaller case measuring 34mm. Size aside, the Rolex Date has always shared a nearly identical look to the Datejust, including the dial layout, case materials, bracelet options, bezel style, and the Cyclops magnifying glass above the date window at 3 o’clock.

As with all Rolex watches, the Oyster Perpetual Date has undergone several different materials and mechanical updates over its sixty-plus years of production. Also available is the Lady-Date collection with its petite 26mm case. Although the Lady-Date line was withdrawn from the Rolex collection in the mid-2000s, the Date 34 remained for a few more years until it was finally discontinued in 2021.
Now that Rolex has discontinued the replica Rolex Date 34, there is no longer an option for a 34mm stainless steel Rolex watch with a date window. There is also the Pearlmaster 34, but these watches are only available in solid 18k gold, and even the most humble versions are still set with diamonds, making them a rather niche (and expensive) offering. mens watches
Why Rolex chose to abandon the Date 34 rather than update it with a new generation movement, as most other models have done, remains a mystery. It’s also a mystery why the Date is referred to as a “Date” rather than simply as an alternative size option to the Datejust, but it’s a trend that has continued throughout production.
Thankfully, the Rolex Date 34 will still be available on the secondary market for those looking for a classic, restrained Rolex replica watch with an incredibly versatile case diameter. If you think the classic 36mm Datejust is too big for your wrist and the mid-sized 31mm model is a bit too small, then the now discontinued 34mm Rolex Date may be the perfect watch for you.

Future Classic Replica Rolex Yacht-Master II

Rolex watches are widely considered to be a solid investment, probably the most reliable in the world of luxury goods. With all of the brand’s models, you can be reasonably confident that it will retain its value and, in most cases, even appreciate in value over the years. Of course, as with anything, some pieces will perform better than others, and for those looking to preserve their value, the trick is to be able to spot the pieces destined for future glory before the rest of the industry discovers them. Rolex Yacht-Master II rolex-079036_04
Right now, there is no precise scientific basis for discovering the classic works of the future. It is almost impossible to predict where the golden eggs are buried – otherwise, we would all have bought a large selection of exotic “Paul Newman” Daytona watches in the 1960s and lived the high life today. However, there are some standout models currently in production that have the “uniqueness” factor to become future classics, and the fake Rolex Yacht Prestige II 116689 may be one of those watches.
The Rolex Yacht Prestige II is a brave project that required the experts at Rolex to come up with a new way to cram so much technology into one watch. The key innovative difference was the incorporation of the bezel, normally a decorative feature, into the overall mechanism and working mechanism of the watch. Called the “ring command bezel”, it is directly connected to the internal movement of the Yacht-Master II, acting as an on/off switch to unlock various operations and create a surprisingly simple and straightforward setting process.
The engine driving all this virtuosity is a heavily modified Cal. 4130 from the Rolex Daytona replica. The Cal. 4160 took some 35,000 hours to perfect, using a variation of the vertical clutch and column wheel system found on Rolex’s legendary racing chronographs. watches
In addition, despite being purchased at the retail level for several thousand dollars more than its gold counterpart, the often overlooked status of reference 116689 means that it is actually much less expensive when purchased second-hand on the pre-owned market.
All in all, the Rolex Yacht Prestige II 116689 is a very special watch. Now in its second generation, Rolex’s first foray into the world of true complications may be aimed at a very niche market, but it is still one of the most impressive examples of the watchmaker’s output ever produced. While there is no guarantee that the replica Rolex will become a classic, this ultra-luxurious model has all the necessary ingredients to one day be at the top of every collector’s wish list.
