Milgauss with green glass…but it’s NOT a GV model ! Stainless steel Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss model 116400 on Oyster 72400 bracelet with black / plain index dial, distinctive orange “lightning strike” seconds hand and (most curiously) a green-tinted synthetic sapphire glass. Green sapphire glass is normally found only on the “GV” versions of the Milgauss, which this is specifically not — it is a simple 116400, as the standard index dial and Rolex UK’s records show. We believe that the glass was fitted in error during service work by Rolex UK; they have confirmed that they serviced it, but do not record whether they fitted a plain or green glass in error! As can be seen in the additional images (which can be viewed by clicking on the main picture), we have compared it with a genuine GV and are confident that the green sapphire glass is genuine, showing the same depth, colour and bevelled edge as our control example. The watch is in excellent condition with negligible signs of wear. It comes with Rolex boxes, Milgauss booklet, red swing-tag, our own warranty card and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. Its V3xxxxx case number dates it to around 2009. The highly anti-magnetic Milgauss models were re-introduced into the Rolex range over a decade ago but remain very popular. Only a Milgauss GV model is available today, with a NEW RRP of £6,650. Like many of the more unusual Professional Rolex models in stainless steel, they can be hard to find at main agents. Furthermore, the discontinued, plain 116400 with simple index batons like this watch is now sought after in its own right.
