VULCAIN Trophy Nautical Limited Edition

By TLex VULCAIN release 100 piece Limited Edition of their legendary Cricket underwater alarm watch. The VULCAIN Trophy Nautical LE with 'Clou de Paris' detailing on its bezel, a 300m water-resistance and new rubber coated waterproof strap with blue stitching is a fitting tribute to the 2011 season of the Vulcain Trophy . . .

From VULCAIN As title sponsor of the trophy, Swiss watch manufacturer Vulcain wished to highlight this season by issuing a special edition of its legendary Cricket Nautical alarm wristwatch. Produced in a 100-piece series – three of which were presented to the skippers who reached the podium of the Vulcain Trophy 2011 – this limited edition is distinguished by a resolutely different design. The 42 mm-diameter case, water-resistant to 300 metres and featuring alternating polished and satin-brushed surfaces, is topped by an unusual bezel adorned with the “Clou de Paris” hobnail pattern.

The triple case-back – which enhances the sound and also means the alarm can be used under water – is engraved with the inscription “Vulcain Trophy 2011”, a depiction of the Decision 35 boat, as well as the individual number from 1/100 to 100/100 allocated to each watch. A new rubber-coated waterproof strap – with blue stitching matching the dial décor – accentuates the sporting nature of this exclusive Nautical model. At the heart of this exceptional watch beats Calibre V-10, the legendary Vulcain Cricket alarm movement that for over half a century has been making an indelible mark on the history of alarm watches.

A tribute to this exciting 2011 season of the Vulcain Trophy, this limited-edition Nautical model is intended to emphasise the Swiss watch manufacturer’s profound attachment to the maritime world and its most extraordinary ambassadors.
