The concept of an alarm clock is not a new one. Ancient civilizations from Greece to Mesopotamia devised examples that employed candles, nails, even water. But Vulcain–established in 1858–was the first manufacturer to create an alarm that could be worn on the wrist.

The Vulcain Cricket was introduced in 1947 to much fanfare, and has been presented to every U.S. President since Harry S. Truman. Despite such a storied reputation, the Cricket doesn’t possess a rarified air. Thanks to the multitude of case, dial and hand configurations, from gold-plated dress models to sportier iterations like the one we offer here, the Cricket is a watch that everyone can appreciate.

This example is a Reference S2321B dating from the 1960s. One of the sportier models, it features a case crafted from stainless steel. The most arresting feature of this watch is the dial, a deep blue dappled with patina throughout, making it truly mesmerizing to behold.
