The only person I ever knew that regularly had issues with a watch being magnetized was my wife. She wears an automatic Cartier Tank Francaise and her watch became magnetized 3 times in a roughly 2 month period of time. We figured out that the issue was her department was next to the MRI machines in the radiology Dept. She briefly started looking at anti-magnetic watches, but then her department moved to a newer part of the hospital and no more issues...so she spent the watch $$$ on jewelry, no surprise there!
Cool photo, funny slogan. What would the Explorer 2's slogan be..."The Caveman's Watch?"

It did feel quite heavy on the wrist to me when I tried it. I have a Sinn which also has a Faraday cage and the Rolex felt heavier.
I love the look of the Milgauss GV apart from the shiny bracelet. I am tempted though to get one and switch to an orange rubber or green Nato strap.
+1 Milgauss fanboy here... I own the black-dial GV. Therefore I wish they'd discontinue the green bottle glass completely :)
I too could live without the brushed elements on the bracelet. Makes it more flashy than it should be... because otherwise it's quite s stealth-model, apart from ppl who actually know the Milgauss most others have no clue it's a Rolex. Which is a good thing in my book.
And yeah, it's heavy. For me on the edge of being unpractical. But then I love the refreshing look so much that it stays on the "keep" side. Permanently. So far. :Dpost #33638 of 483127/15/14 at 1:37pmpost #33639 of 483127/15/14 at 2:16pmpost #33640 of 483127/15/14 at 3:24pmpost #33641 of 483127/15/14 at 3:30pmpost #33642 of 483127/15/14 at 4:15pmpost #33643 of 483127/15/14 at 4:25pm
That Milgauss is funky cool. I dig it. A lot. And antimagtetic properties are arguably more valuable than extreme water resistance. Not even pro divers descend to the spectacular depths at which these watches are rated. But I've had a couple watches get magnetized over the years. True, it's an easy fix. But nice to not have to worry about it.post #33644 of 483127/15/14 at 4:40pm
Blue GV is going for around 8k, it seems. Im still a ways off from being able to drop that kind of money on a watch. Even when I am, I wonder if I will like it enough to do so
I do agree the crown looks almost out of place on such a clean watch.
I think crowns in general interrupt the lines of cases. I would appreciate more efforts to integrate them flush into the case.post #33645 of 483127/15/14 at 4:51pmIt seems like Rolex has been using design cues appropriated from the desires of watch bloggers and executing them in an ironic fashion. Making a Milgauss when it's no longer functionally necessary, the "mismatching" end links of the SD4000, or for that matter, the entire Tudor line. I guess you could say its like wearing a trench coat even when you're not actually in a trench.
