    Jiminy Crickets, it's colourful Vulcain's!

    The Manufacture Vulcain has been active since 1858 in the creation of exceptional watches. In addition to the legendary Cricket alarm calibre, the Manufacture has succeeded in establishing its stature by offering models combining classicism and slenderness, in harmony with its history. This year Vulcain decided to opt for a range of colourful models mingling tradition with trends.


    The most representative example of this new attitude is the extension of the 50s Presidents’ Watch Manual featuring new raspberry and tobacco-toned dials. Driven by the same concern for details, the Louisiana alligator leather straps – whether shiny raspberry, pearly brown, matt black or chestnut brown with hazelnut-brown spaces between the scales – have been specially selected to make a perfect match with the dial.

    These timepieces featuring a blend of classical and modern elements are equipped with the emblematic manually-wound Vulcain alarm movement and are available in gem-set or non-set versions.

    2014 also sees a return to ladies’ models for Vulcain. Harking back to the 1920s, when the Manufacture produced various models with this clientele in mind, the brand has decided to turn the spotlight on women by offering the First Lady Automatic, a new classic range in refined, feminine colours, including occasionally unexpected variations such as the chocolate or ivory-toned models.

    This colourful trend is also showcased in the Aviator Instrument Chronograph from the 2014 men’s collection, as well as in the latest version of its legendary Nautical Seventies, developed for the Vulcain Trophy 2014 and offered in a 35-piece limited series.

    The modern Vulcain definitely has polarizing models, but their cricket lineup is just beautiful! I love my aviator!

    Nope. Just plain chronos based on workhorse movements. They look ok, but we are the ones who have the jewels on the modern Vulcain's crowns, my friend!

    I've literally never seen a diamond bezel watch in the wild. Yet manufacturers keep making them. They must be popular ​somewhere...

    Was going to get a Vulcain but felt I would be a watch hipster by going so niche.
    There's always room on top.
