    Thank you. I still have it and it's my favorite. I just hope one of these days, I can afford another Vulcain Cricket, the one with the date would be nice.

    A Paul Breguette "Reveille" vintage alarm watch with a Vulcain Cricket movement. I'v seen some watch brands having the same movement. Among some of them are Hallmark, Chalfont and Crosby. I'm not sure if the proper term for this is private label. In addition, according to some, Paul Breguette was made by Ebel and it was the name brand used for the American market.

    A very nice collection! I'm not at all sure I'd call that modest as it seems very carefully selected. Do you have a theme to your collection or do you just buy what you like?

    All your watches are really nice, but the Longines is super.

    Thank you very much. I call it modest in comparison to people who have watch brands that are sometimes difficult to pronounce and spell. I got these watches all for a low 3 digits. Although some of these have to have some work done on them. I don't really have a theme to my watch collection. I just buy or exchange (if that's sometimes possible) what I like. But I do prefer alarm watches and those with bumper movements. A major consideration too is the price. Hence, I only have 1 Vulcain Cricket.
