Here we have a truly outstanding example of a Solid Gold Vulcain Cricket alarm watch. This one spent a long time in a collection, carefully stored away for years. The case shows very little use and the original finish dial is outstanding. The case is stamped 14K Gold and measures 33.5mm across and just over 39.6mm from lug tip to lug tip.

The white honey comb dial still has its original finish and features “Swiss” spelled out at 6:00. Given that it’s from the early 50’s, the dial is in great condition with just some slight aging. It features faceted gold markers and numerals and matching hands.

Powering the watch is a Swiss made, first generation Vulcain Cricket movement with 17 jewels. It has just been serviced, keeping excellent time, and the alarm feature functions perfectly and is amazingly LOUD. We paired the watch with a handmade, genuine suede strap in matte black, matching the dial.
