Rolex Milgauss Watch

If you ever got a hand-me-down Rolex from someone who worked in a power plant or secret government research facility, you might have gotten your hands on an early Rolex Milgauss Watch ($7,500). Introduced in 1956 for the scientific community, the Milgauss is capable of withstanding magnetic fields up to 1,000 gauss — or more than you'd ever wish to be exposed to. Corrosion-resistant 940L steel does the trick with the case, as does an amazing green sapphire cover.

  • Tag Heuer Mikrogirder

    As if you needed a reminder of how fast time is slipping away, the Tag Heuer Mikrogirder ($TBA) is here to show you with nearly unreadable speed. Accurate to 1/2,000th of a second, the Mikrogirder uses an all new beam/girder and excitatory beam/girder system to measure such small fractions of time with stunning accuracy, as evident on the central hand that does a complete revolution 20 times a second. It probably tells you normal time well, too, but if you're even considering trying to acquire this beast, that's probably not your biggest concern.

  • Swatch Touch Watch

    We'll be the first to admit that Swatch — better known for its crazy, stackable neon designs — was about the last company we expected to drop a touchscreen digital watch. Yet that's exactly what the Swatch Touch Watch ($140) is. Using funky on-screen digits that blend in well with the control indicators at the bottom, it offers up the time, date, and even a chronograph, all accesible with a touch — and swipe — of the finger.
