ive been looking around to learn more about this watch before pulling the trigger. i've read that the case back has a"B" on it with an arrow over the top. but ive seen some 116400GV black dials without the B on the case back....

does anyone know what year that was introduced? i apologize if this was discussed already.

Go back and look carefully at post #6 concerning the "B" symbol. The symbol is inside the watch on the Faraday cage, and NOT on the outside of the rear cover. Only when you remove the case back will you see the symbol.

The Milgauss was introduced in 1956.

This article actually tests the anti-magnetic of Omega and Rolex Milgauss. The watches can handle more than 1000 gauss

I am always amazed that there's so little love for the modern white-dial version (the 116500-0002). Here's mine on an orange Everest strap. It cheers me up!

The Rolex Milgauss

To me the Milgauss is a fun watch and I am a”young 65”.

Do I like others Rolex’s more - yeah - adore my CHNR.

But when I really want to be in a laid back mood - it’s my Z Blue on a blue strap with orange stitching. It’s just nice to be sitting on the porch with it on and that orange lightning second hand doing its thing.
