Wait isn't the Rolex Milgauss anti Magnetic?, and if so what is the difference between "Anti-magnetic" and "truly anti-magnetic"?

Not a big watch person myself, but I'm guessing from the name that the Rolex is only resistant to 1000, versus the 15000 gauss cited for the Omega. Re: the semantics, I would suppose that "truly anti-magnetic" refers to the use of non-ferrous materials mentioned, making it not just resistant to magnetism but actually amagnetic/nonmagnetic. How true that is, and how much is marketing, no idea..
