raphmeister’s view on the rolex milgauss… a clas

the rolex milgauss has some history… in the past when it was first launched,hublot arturo fuente replica, it wasn’t the most liked model in the rolex range… and it didn’t fare well sales wise. however the prices of vintage milgauss’ in the antiquorum rolex revolution were pretty amazing… a 6541 similar as the one pictured below sold for close to US$200k wif buyers premium… and the 1019 white milgausses sold for around the US$40-55k range. thats some serious $$$ for an unappreciated model…

the unique thing about the milgauss is that it can stand up to 1,000 gauss (mil=1,Replica Dior – Dior VIII 38mm CD1241E0C001 Women watch,000), gauss being a measure of magnetism. what it basically means is that the watch is highly resistant to magnetism being protected by a faraday cage…

fast forward to the newer productions and early 2008… the watches just released are HOT HOT HOT!!! and with most hot watches,santos de cartier 100 watch,http://www.super-replica-watches.com, the prices go crazy… they shoot to more than 100% over the list price for the gv (glass verte… fyi, verte means green) and 30-60% above list for the white and black dial versions…

the 3 variations

but like all hot commodities or stocks,Longines Conquest Classic Watches, it was a bubble that was built up by perceived high demand and low supply. some folks speculating that the green sapphire was difficult for Rolex to produce… if that was really the case, Rolex seem to have solved those issues and recently more and more have come to the market… this has resulted in a fall in prices.. the white and black dials selling for list or discounted and the gv selling only for a slight premium… although some retailers are still pushing for above 50% premium in some markets…

whatever it is, i think this is a very nice watch. its construction is solid and it has
a strong appeal to me for a modern Rolex. live pics of a piece that i had in my
possession for the briefest of times…
