The watchmaker Vulcain has brought the Nautical Seventies watch into the contemporary spotlight with a limited edition of 300 timepieces. With its thoroughly vintage charm, this watch designed for divers is unique in its class.
A watch that stands as a symbol of Vulcain’s innovation
When Vulcain designed the Cricket Nautical in 1961, the watchmaker sparked a revolution in the domain of diving watches. A truly cutting-edge timepiece, it was the first diving watch water-resistant to 300 metres equipped with an alarm that could be heard underwater. The Vulcain Nautical Seventies watch from 1970 allied these same characteristics to a redesigned display. The 2013 edition is a faithful reproduction of that innovative model.
The Nautical Seventies: a retro watch with a trendy charm
Water-resistant to 300 metres, the watch has a triple case-back that serves as a resonance chamber for the alarm, the sound of which is amplified by hesalite watch glass. The manually wound legendary Cricket V-10 calibre sounds its alarm for 20 seconds underwater, and the twin barrels provide the power for both timekeeping and the alarm. Its luminescent hands and square hour markers make the watch readable even in the depths of the ocean. For an elegance that is refined even underwater, its water-repellent leather strap with its orange detail complements the dial.
