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.
