Vulcain’s Cricket Nautical, a legendary diving instrument from over 60 years ago, is making a triumphant return after the successful launch of the Skindiver.

Back in 1961, Vulcain made waves as the sole watchmaker to offer a diver’s watch with an aquatic alarm that could be heard underwater. This innovative feature was made possible by the unique “triple case back.” Beyond its practicality, the Cricket Nautical appeals to both scuba enthusiasts and vintage timepiece admirers.

This iconic watch was the result of a collaboration between three experts and Vulcain, marking the birth of the world’s first diver’s watch with integrated dive time calculations and a genuine underwater alarm. Hannes Keller, Max-Yves Brandily, and Arthur Droz were the passionate divers behind this groundbreaking timepiece. Hannes Keller even set a deep-sea record in 1966, witnessed and validated by the legendary Jacques Cousteau.

The Cricket Nautical is designed with a 42mm diameter, ensuring ease of use and legibility underwater. It features two dials for decompression time calculations. In 2011, Vulcain celebrated its 50th anniversary by releasing a limited edition. Now, for its 60th anniversary, a new version with a sapphire crystal is available in two distinct designs:

– Black dial with faux-patina details and an emerald green minute track.
– Black dial with white Super-LumiNova® markers and hands, accompanied by a blue minute track.

Preserving its vintage charm, the Vulcain Cricket Manufacture V-10 caliber pays homage to the pioneering days of diving.
