    .0003 second google search.

    The term antimagnetic on the ana-digi Gs its probalbly used to show that the analogue mechanics are shielded somehow to magnetic fields or made of antimagnetic materials as far as possible.
    Since the analogue part will always include a stepper motor this movements will never be 100% antimagnetic.

    A LCD quartz watch will only fail, if the magnetic fields are inducting currents in the electronic.
    To get to this point, the fields need to be VERY strong and AC.

    So my "antimagnetic" list of watches:
    -all digital and the digital parts of ana-digis

    Watches possibly influenced by strong magnetic fields:
    -all watches moving hands

    All digital watches are fine, unless they are ISO 6425 compliant. In which case any magnetic contact will cause it to catch fire. And explode.
