Here is a mint+ never polished reference 1019 Rolex Milgauss from 1979 complete with original box and papers. Rolex collecting doesn’t get any better than this watch, right here and right now!

Original never polished stainless steel case with dimensions of 37.5mm diameter by 12.6mm thick. Case features original smooth bezel, domed acrylic crystal and original screw down crown. The real story with the 1019’s case is the soft inner case and case back assembly that holds the inner case down firmly over the movement to protect it from magnetic fields. Rolex, being a true provider of tools, gave scientists and researchers what they need with this case construction, which provides protection from fields of up to one thousand gauss (a measurement of magnetism). Ordinary watches’ timekeeping begins to be affected by magnetism at around 40 gauss. Also, the 1000 gauss is how the Milgauss got its name, as 1000 is “mil” and “gauss” is gauss. Case is in mint+ original unpolished condition.

Original untouched RARE cream dial is in perfect condition. Applied hour markers. Hands are original with inlaid luminous and in perfect condition. The original seconds hand has a red arrow at the end. The hands provide absolutely excellent legibility. The red ‘MILGAUSS’ is a great design touch that adds a lot of pizzazz to the look of this watch.

Original Rolex automatic caliber 1580 with 26 jewels beating inside. It's a slower beating movement, which you can see by the action of the seconds hand. Movement is clean and running and is a C.O.S.C. Certified Chronometer.

The Rolex Oyster bracelet reference 78360 is in great shape and has 12 links.

This watch is all original and in essentially new old stock condition and is complete with original box and papers.
