Description

Very attractive Vulcain CRICKET with alarm made in the 50ies.
This watch became famous because JF Kennedy had one. In the year 1947 the “Fabrique de Montres Vulcain” presented the first perfectly working wristwatch with alarm. Until then no watchmaker had ever achived to make a wristwatch alarm sound loud enough to wake someone up. The alarm sounds like a cricket. Very nice!
