Lot Essay

The present wristwatch is a well-preserved representative of a Milgauss ref. 1019, the appeal enhanced by the original guarantee and the original presentation box.

In production from 1966 to 1990, ref. 1019 was only available in stainless steel. Its name is derived from the Greek "Mil" for thousand and "Gauss", the unit to measure magnetism. A normal watch movement can withstand 70-90 Gauss whereas the Milgauss keeps its incredibly precision in a magnetic field up to 1000 Gauss.

Compared to the simultaneously produced and well-known caliber 1570, the caliber 1580 can only be found in the Milgauss ref. 1019. It differs by a few slightly changed, parts, in order for it to meet the requirements of anti-magnetism, including the fourth wheel, escape wheel, jewelled pallet fork, balance with Breguet hairspring.
