Vulcain is a small Swiss watch company that was founded in 1858. In 1947 they produced the world's first genuinely operational alarm wristwatch, powerful enough to awaken its owner. The movement has a unique and powerful alarm sound that earned it the name "Cricket". The Cricket was known as the President's watch, after it was worn by watch enthusiast Harry Truman as well as Presidents Eisenhower and Nixon. The present example is oversized for the breed with a stunning look of understated elegance.
