VULCAIN – 50S PRESIDENTS’ WATCH HERITAGE
Introducing the Vulcain 50s Presidents’ Watch Heritage
Blue – a colour already found in the Vulcain watch collections – has been given an electric hue to adorn the face of the new 50s Presidents’ Watch Heritage model.
The dial, with a spiral guilloche pattern producing a stylised sunbust effect, is covered in transluscent blue enamel and features two dolphin-shaped, silvery and luminescent hands in its centre, making their way around the hour and minute markers. The seconds are also shown by a central second hand. A fourth hand with a red arrow tip also joins the three others. This is the famous Cricket Alarm that will go off for 20 seconds and is set using the button at 2 o’clock on the middle of the case, turning the alarm hand on the circular scale near the flange.
The steel case measures 39mm in diameter and contains the mechanical hand-wound Cricket-V10 calibre (power reserve of 42 hours). The watch features a Milanese mesh strap that is likewise made of steel.
