2016, A PROMISING YEAR

In 2015, Vulcain concentrated on the graphic development of its main collections, offering a number of redesigned manufacture models. This year, the Le Locle-based brand has chosen to focus more deeply on something at core of its identity: the Cricket calibre. In parallel with its new manufacture movement, the V-40, the Vulcain Watch Manufacture is unveiling several models inspired by its history and flagship collections.


THE VULCAIN CRICKET CALIBRE EVOLVES TO FEATURE A NEW DESIGN

Vulcain has left its mark on the history of alarm watches. In 1947, the brand unveiled the Cricket alarm calibre, a movement innovative enough to be featured in several Vulcain wristwatches, and which quickly found its place in the history of Haute Horlogerie.

Remaining faithful to its history, the Le Locle-based Manufacture has added a new model to its “Métier d’Art” collection which celebrates the age-old specialist art of cloisonné enamel. This difficult technique, which requires patience and attention to detail, brings exceptional precision to the design, as well as unique and long-lasting colour rendering.

Following on from “Le Vulcain” in 2015, the Manufacture is once again taking its inspiration from a Greek god: Poseidon. God of the seas and oceans, he is instantly recognisable by the trident he holds in one hand. This new model represents both strength and elegance, two fundamental values which have always motivated the brand’s designers when creating each timepiece.
