WALTHAM SUPER VOICE VULCAIN CRICKET

WALTHAM SUPER VOICE VULCAIN CRICKET

Regular price $1,149.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A SHARP EARLY 60s WALTHAM SUPER VOICE HOUSING A VULCAIN CRICKET ALARM MOVEMENT.

  • CASE: CLASSIC ALL-STEEL CASE MEASURING A HEALTHY 35mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN. THIS CASE IS IN CLEAN AND EXCELLENT SHAPE WITH SHARP LUGS AND NO SIGNS OF EVER HAVING BEEN POLISHED. 
  • DIAL: THIS SUNBURST PEARLY SILVER CLASSIC RADIUM DIAL IS A SERIOUS LOOKER. I LOVE THE SIMPLE LAYOUT AND THAT GORGEOUS MIRRORED MINUTE TRACK. ALL TIED TOGETHER WITH A GROOVY SET OF DAUPHINE HANDS AND A BLACK TIPPED ALARM HAND. 
  • MOVEMENT: THIS GENTLEMAN RUNS ON THE FAMOUS AND QUITE COLLECTIBLE 17 JEWEL VULCAIN 120 CRICKET ALARM MOVEMENT. WATCH IS KEEPING GOOD TIME AND THE ALARM FUNCTIONS QUITE WELL. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN. THIS IS A UNIQUE COMPLICATION. THE CROWN WINDS CLOCKWISE TO WIND THE BARREL OF THE ALARM AND COUNTERCLOCKWISE TO WIND THE POWER RESERVE FOR THE WATCH ITSELF.
WATCH COMES MOUNTED ON A RUGGED TAPERED NUBUCK STRAP  WHICH I FELT PAIRED WELL WITH THIS PIECE. I REALLY HAVE A SOFT WARM SPOT IN MY SOUL FOR THIS WATCH AS IT COMBINES 2 HISTORIC BRANDS INTO ONE COOL PACKAGE. USING THE CRICKET CALIBER, THIS ALARM  PULLS FROM THE HERITAGE OF THE FAMOUS VULCAIN WATCHES WHICH MANY PAST AMERICAN PRESIDENTS PROUDLY WORE. THE SUPER VOICE IS A CLASSIC IN ITS OWN RIGHT AND THIS HAPPENS TO BE A BEAUTIFUL AND VERY WELL PRESERVED EXAMPLE. THIS IS FOR THE TRUE ADVENTURER AND TRAILBLAZER LOOKING FOR SOMETHING THAT PACKS A BUZZ.
