GROOVY~60s VULCAIN CRICKET

Regular price $899.99 Sale

FOR SALE IS GROOVY 1960s VULCAIN CRICKET HOUSED IN A HANDSOME GOLD CUSHION CASE.

  • CASE: CLASSIC EPSA GOLD PLAQUE CUSHION CASE MEASURING A HEALTHY 34mm NOT INCLUDING SIGNED CROWN. THIS CASE IS IN GOOD CONDITION WITH SOME MINOR GOLD THINNING AT THE EDGES BUT OVERALL LOOKING PRETTY SHARP. THIS WEARS MORE LIKE A 36mm BECAUSE OF THE SQUARE SHAPED CASE AND THE WIDE DIAL WHICH MAKES FOR SOME GOOD WRIST PRESENCE.
  • DIAL: THIS SUNBURST CHAMPAGNE DIAL IS A SERIOUS LOOKER. I LOVE THE SIMPLE LAYOUT AND THAT GORGEOUS GOLD MIRRORED MINUTE TRACK. ALL TIED TOGETHER WITH A GROOVY SET OF BLUNTED DAGGER 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 REALLY NICE 19mm KREISLER MESH BRACELET WHICH REALLY GIVES THIS ONE A PIMPIN’ LOOK. USING THE CRICKET CALIBER, THIS ALARM  PULLS FROM THE HERITAGE OF THE FAMOUS VULCAIN WATCHES WHICH MANY PAST AMERICAN PRESIDENTS PROUDLY WORE. THIS IS FOR THE TRUE ADVENTURER AND TRAILBLAZER LOOKING FOR SOMETHING THAT PACKS A BUZZ.
