You many not have heard of Vulcain before, but the Swiss brand has been continuously producing watches since 1858, gaining international attention as the first range of timepieces with an alarm function, which was enough to earn it the favor of many mid-20th Century presidents. This Vulcain Aviator Cricket Alarm Watch now brings the brand's flagship function to their popular Aviator model, driven by a V-11 movement with a 42 hour power reserve tucked within a 42mm case crafted out of polished 316L Stainless steel. The dial, which itself comes in a crisp White/Blue (with a tan strap) or Black/White colorway (with a black leather strap), also displays a 24-hour world time ring operated by a crown at the 4 o'clock position, a date indicator at 6 o'clock, and the alarm indicator for the "Exactomatic" system that sounds for 20 seconds when activated. The back also reveals the 18,000 vph movement through the sapphire case back, but all of the location names, indicators, and marks under the front's domed sapphire crystal face will occupy you for quite some time. Now's your chance to own a piece of history as the watch itself is available now for $5,700 in a limited supply directly from Vulcain retailers and the brand's online site.
