Vulcain 50s Presidents’ Watch

Few models can claim to find their way through history on the wrist of statesmen, as is the case with the Vulcain 50s Presidents’ Watch. Equipped with the legendary Vulcain Cricket V-11 calibre, a hand-wound alarm movement, it appears in new steel versions featuring a silver-toned, charcoal grey or smoky grey dial featuring a central guilloché pattern. “The watch of presidents since the 1950s” maintains its original characteristics including a dial curved at either end and bearing applied hour-markers Arabic numerals, as well as Dauphine hands. This model is fitted with a domed sapphire crystal and a sapphire-crystal caseback enhanced with the stylised “V” for Vulcain. The Cricket V-11 movement contributes to the enduring legend with its alarm function that has been steadily forging the brand’s reputation for over 60 years.
