The year 1947 marked a pivotal moment for Vulcain with the launch of the world's first alarm wristwatch featuring a striking mechanism: the Cricket. The sound would become a Vulcain signature. It was not just audible – it was powerful enough to reliably wake its wearer (to the sound of a very vigorous and determined cricket). A world first, the Vulcain Cricket soon became very fashionable, earning the moniker "The Presidents' Watch" as President Harry S. Truman and his successors— Eisenhower, Nixon, and Johnson—also found it quite useful.
