Your Unforgettable Rolex Milgauss Z-Blue Dial

The Rolex Milgauss has always been the model for watch collectors who don’t really consider themselves “Rolex people”. Always more outlandish than its counterpart, it is one of the few products of the brand that can be easily picked out and recognized in a crowd, no doubt from a reasonable distance – especially when we talk about the Rolex Milgauss Z-Blue.

After a long absence from the Rolex catalog, the Milgauss was reintroduced to the Rolex collection in 2007, followed by this particularly funky Z-Blue dial variant in 2014. The latter is what we’ll be looking at today, as it is one of the most interesting and quirky Rolex models to date, and the one that really started it all. First, we’ll look at the history of this unique fake Rolex watch, which was designed for scientists rather than athletes, and then examine all the key features that have made the Rolex Milgauss Z-Blue a standout in the Rolex catalog. So, without further ado, let’s take a closer look.
The only feature that defines the Z-Blue version of the 116400GV Milgauss is its stunning Z-Blue dial, a distinctive blue color that belongs entirely to the Milgauss collection and you won’t find the same blue color on any other replica Rolex watch. Z-Blue is not a traditional blue, but a metallic electric blue that reflects the green color that protects its green hue produced by the sapphire crystal. Set against bright orange highlights and an orange lightning-like seconds hand, the Z-Blue dial is one of the most colorful and striking watches ever made by Rolex.
Even opting for the black dial version of the 116400 GV will save you a few thousand dollars on the pre-owned market, a figure that increases to about $3,000 if you opt for the standard version of the 116400 Milgauss. The 116400 Milgauss does not have the green sapphire crystal that its “GV” counterpart has.
However, if you find the traditional Submariner, Datejust, Explorer, or Yacht Prestige a bit too boring, the Z-Blue Milgauss is a compelling option. You won’t see as many in the wild, which is an added bonus for many, and with anti-magnetic watches becoming the industry standard, the days of the Rolex Milgauss in its current form are numbered if Rolex intends to stay on top.
