Robert Downey Jr.’s Milgauss is part of the current Best Rolex Milgauss Replica Watches collection that was released in 2007. With a 40mm stainless steel Oyster case, stainless steel Oyster bracelet, and black dial, the ref. 116400GV is a sportier version of vintage Rolex Milgauss models. On the dial is the characteristic orange lightning bolt seconds hand that matches the other orange details found on the dial. Interestingly, the Milgauss 116400GV is topped with a green sapphire crystal — “GV” in the reference number denotes “Glace Verte”, French for green glass — which gives the watch a very distinct look.
In conjunction with the launch of the debut issue of GQ Style, GQ recently released a video of the star of the Iron Man movie franchise, Robert Downey Jr., going through the contents of his watch box. Among the impressive collection of timepieces from Patek Philippe, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Rolex Milgauss Replica, and other fine watchmakers, are three very cool Rolex watches — a Milgauss, a GMT-Master II, and a Submariner. Let’s take a closer look at Robert Downey Jr.’s Rolex watches.

Known as the scientist’s watch, the Rolex Milgauss was first introduced in 1956 with the capability to withstand magnetic fields of up to 1,000 gauss. This was a particularly practical feature for professionals working in the medical and scientific industries as they were regularly exposed to high magnetic fields during the course of their workday.

The next watch in Robert Downey Jr.’s collection is a Rolex GMT-Master II “Ghost”. This, however, is not a stock product from Rolex’s collection of pilot watches, but rather a modified version customized by the Bamford Watch Department company. This altered GMT-Master II features an all-black look, including the case, bezel, dial, and bracelet. Completing the look of the watch are the white details on the dial and bezel.

And last, but certainly not least, is the Submariner 116610LV, nicknamed “The Hulk” for its rich green hue. First unleashed in 2010, the ref. 116610LV is a full stainless steel Submariner with the date feature. A standout model within the Rolex’s family of diving watches, the Rolex Replica Watches with the green dial and matching green Cerachrom ceramic bezel is one of the brand’s most popular models today. Waterproof to 1,000 feet (300 meters) thanks to the Triplock screw-down crown and fluted caseback on its 40mm Oyster case, this superhero watch is just as comfortable deep underwater as it is out on land.
In the video, Robert Downey Jr. refers to this watch as his “Green Money Rolex” and we have to agree with his sentiment. This Sub is most definitely “money”.
