    Are some reps actually antimagnetic

    Hi all, also posted this in flame free zone, but no luck. So here goes again and apologies if this has been asked before, but I cant seem to find the answer around here.
    I would like to know if the antimagnetic covers used in rep watches actually work? Are some rep cases antimagnetic? Example LMPO V6, or BP FF, are they actually antimagnetic?

    The only way to find out is to put it next to a magnet. Only two I know: Gen Omega Seamaster & Rolex (hence Rolex Milgauss). Both watches have degaussing
    capability to reduce magnetic field interference. Hope that helps.

      there are watches with the antimagnetic cover but i never tried or been curious about. Diver AP and Overseas Vacheron just to name a few.
      A man with a watch knows what time it is. A man with two watches is never sure !

        I would doubt it — there are two ways to provide antimagnetic protection: create an interior cage that is different than steel to absorb the magnetism or use a material other than steel for the balance spring.

        My expectations are low that rep factories go to this trouble unless they look to use cheaper metals for the balance spring. Which would create other issues entirely ...

          Akonoypi I guess that would be the only way to know for sure, but I’m sure as hell not going to test it

            Keylog74 yes so I have noticed and that is what sparked my curiosity. In my head there is no need to add a fake antimagnetic cover under a solid case back. I mean, if it doesnt work. Why still put it there?

              nalomb yes that makes sense. But still amazes me as to why put an antimagnetic cover under a solid case back, if it doesnt work at all.

                The same reason they make non-functional chronos or deco plates on movements — the look is more important than the functionality.

                  jpchub Simple answer is no to antimagnetic.

                    beau7816 thank you for this link. Since I joined this community I have spent a lot of time on here. Way too much for my wifes liking :-) and I have come across this link before. None the less, very handy. I already sport my first rep, and know the next two I’ll be getting. So for now just plenty of reading in the meantime.
