    Question Antimag question...

    Hi all, it says "Antimag 16000" on the back of one of my Watches. Can anyone tell me what it means ? I mean, 16000 what ?

    I've tried doing a search, but no luck.

    Me think: 16.000 A/m (ampere per metre).

    The strength of a magnetic field is measured in amperes per meter (A/m).
    Measurement in microtesla or millitesla (mT) is applicable too.
    80.000 A/m = 100 mT (IWC, Sinn, DAMASKO)

    Is 16000 good ? Or just mediocre ?

    mT is millitesla, microtesla would be shown as: µT

    The standard loose ETA 2924-2 movement is anti-magnetic to 4,800 a/m, and is fairly resistant to magnetic fields.

    16k A/m would definitely be above average (4,800 A/m), and even surpass the US mil.spec. at 10k A/m, though it would be short of the 32k/40k of IWC and the 80k of Sinn, Damasko and a few others.

    Would the higher grade ETA's have higher ratings?

    what about the 2892?
