What do you guys think of this idea?
So, I think the Milgauss has a list price of US$5900 leaving about US$10000 or so to spend on another.
I'd say no to a milgauss, simply because the sorts of circumstances where you would be exposed to large magnetic fields (eg the busbars beneath a generator stator) mean that you wear overalls. And it doesn't match too well with overalls. And I think it's a little silly having a watch that theoretically could be used for what it was designed, but circumstances mean that in practice, it can't. (Whereas, for example, you really would wear a submariner for diving).
Just 2 cents from someone who actually works with generators.
