Vulcain Watches

Founded in 1858 by the Ditisheim brothers, Vulcain watches were one of the most innovative brands of its time and of the 20th century. It won awards at the world’s fairs and is credited with inventing the first-ever mechanical alarm movement. Called the Cricket, the alarm watch has made history books as the “President’s watch” since so many American presidents owned and wore one, including Dwight D. Eisenhower, Harry Trumann, Richard Nixon, and Lyndon Johnson. Today, the Vulcain collections include the 50S alarm watches, the Prestige collection, the First Lady line for women, and more, but it is always the alarm function that captures the hearts of collectors.
