Vulcain Alarm was introduced in 1947 and was the first hammered wrist alarm. The Cricket also gained fame as the "Watch Of The Presidents," as each US President since Harry Truman has worn a Cricket Alarm. Barack Obama was recently presented with his own Cricket wrist alarm! Many other famous factories acquired the patent and still produce versions of the Cricket alarm watch. Movement has 17 jewels and has dual spring barrel ...one for alarm and second for time. Simply wind forward for one and reverse for second. Then when setting time pull crown to out position set time ...then to set alarm push button crown in and set alarm after that push crown in until alarm sounds at pre-set time. When alarm rings push upper button in and move time back or set a second alarm time. Overall condition on this one is like new ...been worn but its like new overall with sharp edges. Dial is in light Champagne color with mint luminous factory hands and applied gold markers and logo. Print on dial is black with outer 60 seconds dotted chapter....condition and look is awesome! Case is gold filled with steel back and measures 34mm x 42mm overall. Outstanding example of the first wrist alarm. The name Cricket was given this watch because of its distinctive Chirping alarm sound....you'll completely understand first time it activates! Movement is a caliber MSR-52 with 17 jewels....looks and runs like new! Comes with brand new padded strap!
