About Vulcain Watches

With a reputation as "The Watch for Presidents" the Vulcain brand certainly brings some prestige to your wrist. Vulcain watches are available in several models, including the Presidents' Chronograph Heritage Gold. This watch features the V-57 movement, which is a mechanical unidirectional self-winding caliber. This single-pusher chronograph also displays the date. Altogether, this small mechanical wonder comprises 105 components. It has a power reserve of 42 hours and is water-resistant up to 160 feet. The movement has a palladium coating with 25 jewels and the case comes in gold with a sapphire back. There is even more style in the strap, which features alligator leather. Vulcain, established in 1858, invented the mechanical alarm movement that made its timepieces famous worldwide and popular with busy presidents, including Dwight Eisenhower and Lyndon Johnson. The Vulcain alarm watch solved the tricky problem of the striking mechanism that dogged other watchmakers for centuries. You can find innovative Vulcain watches by searching the vast inventory on eBay. The brand also makes Vulcain ladies' watches, such as the First Lady, if you and your partner want to wear presidential his-and-hers timepieces.
