The first Vulcain Cricket watch, named for the shrill, “chirping” sound of its built-in alarm, was released in 1947. The watch quickly became a hit and a favorite of U.S. presidents, inspiring Vulcain to give the Cricket its lofty nickname, “President’s Watch.” The watch is offered in either steel or two-tone steel and rose-gold, each limited to 500 pieces. Price: approx. $4,600.
