Z-Blue - I hope I am not contributing to a "Milgauss-fatigue"!

Jul 31, 2020,13:06 PM

Hi everyone,

After many (many) years of lurking and learning on this wonderful forum, I have decided to finally post for the first time. I realize I risk contributing to a possible “Milgauss-fatigue”, as there seem to have been many posts about the various models as of late, but it really is an incredible watch (in my opinion), and is certainly among the favourites in my collection. 

I won’t rehash everything that has already been said many times on this site about the Z-blue dial, GV crystal or orange lightning bold hand (which I think all come together wonderfully), but will instead just say this: this watch always puts a smile on my face whenever I wear it or even just look at it. It is heartening to see so many other members on this forum share my love for it. 

Wishing you all the best!

I hope the subject matter makes up for my lack of photography skills!

Gotta love the Z-Blue! 👍🏻

Thank you! The awesome pics you've posted of your Milgauss have helped motivate me to post about mine.

I suspect we may have overlapping tastes: I recall you also posting a picture of your Montbrillant Datora a little while back. I have the same model, just a different dial variant..came close to posting it in response! It doesn't get a lot of wrist time t... 

Glad you were inspired! 😉

I ignored this piece for many years and only bought it a few months ago. I guess corona boredom purchase But I love it and it is the watch I have been wearing the most this summer!

I think the true character and charm of the watch only become apparent once you have it on the wrist.

Pictures don't really do it justice. It was on my radar for years, but it took me some time to finally pull the trigger. It truly is an amazing watch for the summer. Glad to hear you are enjoying yours!

Welcome to a trip which never ends. Do not hesitate to share your watch love with us. We all are watch lovers who start somewhere, and many years ago when i start investigate Rolex (around the millennium change) it was the Milgauss which was one of the fi... 

Thank you for the very warm welcome!

I stuck to other brands and avoided Rolex for many years because they seemed like almost "too obvious" a choice (if that makes sense), but I have come to greatly appreciate the brand now that I have taken the time to learn a little about it and feel the q...

A great reply. Rolex, it is hardly to ignore such a famous watch brand. A personal note from me. Years go bye not buy any, and buy other watches. Many reasons like availability, crazy prizing, theft sensitive, replication. Not the only watch brand, many o... 

Thank you for the personal note.

I agree: Rolex is hard to ignore, but as you mentioned, being so well known comes with it's own downsides. This certainly played a part in why I avoided them and stuck to other brands for so long myself. There are indeed many other wonderful watch brands ...

Green blue or Green black combo - can't go wrong with either!
