Ref: 303002 - 38mm
Since President Harry Truman wore one during his time in office, the Vulcain Cricket has graced plenty of presidential wrists. It probably deserves the nickname “President” more than the gold Rolex Day-Date. Almost every single President in the past 60 years has received a Vulcain Cricket for their inauguration or as a special post-Presidency gift.
Vulcain was founded in 1858 in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, by the Ditisheim family—Jacque, and his sons Maurice, Gaspard and Aron.
Originally creating fine pocket watches, it wasn’t until the early forties, in the midst of WWII, that the company turned its attention to the manufacture of wristwatches. Vulcain introduced the Cricket in 1947—the first alarm wristwatch of its kind. Even if not technically the first alarm watch to the market, the Cricket was certainly the loudest.
You can find a lot of Cricket in 34mm but you don’t often come across a Spectacular 38mm Jumbo Specimen, wich is the case of this one. The dial is almost perfect and the steel case with gold bezel and hands make the watch very appealing.
