Here we have a truly outstanding example of the Vulcain Cricket alarm watch. This one spent a long time in a collection, carefully stored away for years. The case shows really no wear whatsoever. It measures 35mm across and just under 42mm from lug tip to lug tip. The case is gold filled, with a signed, stainless steel caseback. An original, signed Vulcain crown tops it all off.
The gold sunburst dial is all original finish. Given that it’s from the late 50’s – early 60’s, it’s in phenomenal condition. It features applied faceted gold and black dial markers, as well perfectly matched original gold hands.
Powering the watch is a Swiss made Vulcain caliber 4467 movement with 17 jewels. It has just been serviced, keeping very good time, and the alarm feature functions perfectly and is nice and LOUD.
