Vulcain’s legacy dates back to 1858, with a reputation for intricate watch complications. The brand’s landmark achievement came in 1947 with the introduction of the Cricket, the first alarm wristwatch with a striking mechanism loud enough to awaken its wearer. The Cricket earned its reputation as “The Presidents’ Watch,” beloved by U.S. Presidents Truman, Eisenhower, Nixon, and Johnson, sealing its place in watchmaking history.
The Autumn-Winter 2023 collection sees Guillaume Laidet, known for his bold approach to watch design, expand Vulcain’s horizons with a quintet of dynamic dial colors. His expertise revitalizes the brand’s heritage, offering a modern twist on the classic Cricket watch, renowned for its unique alarm function.
For the upcoming Holiday Season, Vulcain presents five new limited edition colorways of the infamous Cricket watch, also known as “The Presidents’ Watch.” This selection marries dial colors harmoniously with leather straps, offering a range of chic options that mark Vulcain’s notable resurgence in the watchmaking world.
Facing the challenge of choosing from five alluring limited editions of the Vulcain Cricket, each color adds to the legacy of the brand’s historic rebirth. With 100 pieces available in 39 mm and 50 pieces in 36 mm, these watches are a testament to exclusivity and craftsmanship, priced at CHF 4,400 and CHF 3,800 respectively. Embodying elegance and versatility, the new Cricket watches transcend gender and are suited to a variety of styles, from casual to formal.
