Yeah, I'm pretty sure the one on my wrist in the pic is 39mm.  This is most educational!

Im probably one of the few who feels this way, but I love the GV Milgauss and the new blue dial / GV combo is really vibrant, to me. Id pick one of these up before I went for a DJ or an Explorer:

^^^ DG I don't know, I think you'll find a lot of fellow Milgauss fans here!

And some simple-minded souls who tend to fall for anything blue.  That is the bestest Milgauss.  No doubt.

I tried to preserve its dimensions after crushing it, and laid it out over my SubC ND:

The Milgauss is great and I think it gets passed over a lot by first time Rolex buyers.  I passed it over but it was due to the Sub/GMT range and not the DJ/Explorer range.  The lightning bolt felt a little gimmicky but the green crystal and bits of orange made you want to stare at it.  It is a good rotational watch but I don't know how I would feel about it being an everyday watch.

Ive heard the Milgauss is really heavy, on account of the Faraday cage? Or is it just a little heavier than a standard sub on a bracelet?

I do like the look of the new blue/green Milgauss. My wife once bought me a (barely) used 2-tone Submariner with blue, and while I like the look of that a lot, I find it a little too flashy to wear in those situations when a Sub is required. The MG's all-steel case would go a long way to making a less spectacular entrance. Now if only it had the same water resistance...

I believe the Rolex is genuine (I'm no expert though).

 

(oh, and that's a superbly crafted cranefly! Wear it in good health!)

as i was playing around with it, i actually found that the sweeping of the lightning hand was actually the coolest part of the watch. the zigzag, as opposed to your regular straight second hand, had a different vibe as it rounded the watch dial. i loved it.

also, the blue dial/green crystal is my fave milgauss. i imagine it would likely be my next rolex, if i ever move on from the ToG. i could defo wear it daily.

100 m isn't enough?

What, your fellow saturation divers are giving you grief about your two-tone Submariner being too bling? wink.gif

Margin of safety. I just had to have another watch with similar specs repaired because I went snorkeling with it last winter. After replacing the gaskets.

Just personal taste, not actual circumstance or any moral objection.
