    Vulcain Cricket Butchered Now Need Help

    I need assistance on my Vulcain Cricket. As you might recall my vintage Vulcain Cricket was sent to a watch repair shop to be serviced and sat for months. When the previously working watch was received back, I was told tersely to send it to the Vulcain factory and he cut me off several times when I questioned him on it. Once I got home the watch back no longer fit onto the watch. I sent the watch to Stoll & Co to look at it and they said that the Pallet Fork is missing! What!!! And that the case back is the wrong one! Double What!!! The Pallet Fork is an easy fix but I am now trying to find a vintage gold filled or plated case for a caliber 120 movement. Anyone know where I might find one? I really appreciate everyone’s help on this.

    A big thank you to Brad at Joint Venture Jewelers in Charleston SC for finding a solution for my Vulcain cricket back case not fitting issue. He was able to find a new compression ring that worked in charge me $25. So glad to have it back! It is still the only cricket I’ve ever seen with an inner bezel.

    Glad that had a happy ending. So unprofessional of that first person to screw up the works!

    I learned recently his shop closed due to pancreatic cancer. This might have contributed to my experience. I only have best wishes for his recovery.
