The Rolex Milgauss changed history when it came out in 1956. It was discontinued in 1988 due to a lack of popularity. However, Rolex decided to revive the Milgauss name in 2007. Now, seven years later they release a new version of the Milgauss, this time with a Z blue dial (zirconium alloy is used in the making of it, hence the "Z"). It will use the same green sapphire crystal found on the 2007 model, one of the best features of the watch in my opinion. The watch case is 40mm in diameter and is fully polished. Like other Rolex watches, it is made completely out of 904L steel. It will feature the Oyster style bracelet with a polished center link. The bracelet on the new Milgauss will also have their "easylink" system which allows the wearer to extend the bracelet an extra 5mm. At the heart of the watch will beat the in-house Rolex 3131 movement which has 31 jewels and a power reserve of approximately 40 hours. The new Milgauss looks fantastic, although I wish Rolex would develop a new movement.
