Superb example of Rolex Milgauss ref. 6541 manufactured in 1958. The amazing black honeycomb dial features the original red 'Milgauss’ designation and the electrifying “flash” second hand.  The beauty of this specimen is enhanced by the charming aged bezel and beautiful case maintaining its full proportion.  Certainly one of the most iconic Rolex sports watches, the Milgauss reference 6541 was realized in 1954 for the scientists working at CERN in Geneva. For that reason the caliber 1066 was surrounded by an iron cage to protect it from magnetic forces up to 1000 Gauss.   Case n.: 412xxx Caliber : Automatic, 1066 Diam: 38mm Box & Papers: none Manufactured in: 1958 Price: on request
