    Vulcain Cricket with no sound holes on case back

    Hi,

    I recently came across a Vulcain cricket that had no sound holes on the back, the case was stamped proper.

    I have done some research on ebay, google etc.. cannot find examples of the no hole case back (the case back has the proper alarm pin so im sure its original back). I suspect that it may have been the waterproof version? (but does not say waterproof on the dial or caseback).

    there was another thread on watchuseek on 2014 but no definitive answer there (the link to the answer was broken)

    Does anyone have any information on this? I have attached 3 photos of the watch.

    thanks!

    I'm not sure what you're referring to but I do see what looks like a very small hole around the 4 o'clock position on the watch back. What is the purpose of that?

    Brief research all I can say is the caseback does appear to lack the sound holes of other Vulcain Cricket watches, as you noted. The small hole noted above would certainly not be enough for a true alarm watch. Mike should be along shortly to offer his insight and expertise.
