When generations of American presidents were seen wearing the same watch brand during their days in office, the preference is clear. Luxury Swiss watchmaker Vulcain created the ingenious Cricket Calibre, which emulates the distinctive sound and volume of a cricket’s chirp. It serves as an alarm, which is able to sound off for 25 seconds (winding is required to set the alarm). It is with such quality that American Presidents from Henry Truman to Barrack Obama have chosen to wear the automatic timepiece and became advocates for the brand. Paying tribute to ‘the Presidents’ watch’, Vulcain created the 50s Presidents’ Heritage and re-issued a 500-piece limited edition, featuring the renowned Cricket Calibre V-10 manual movement with a power reserve of 42 hours.
