Vulcain was founded in 1858. Vulcain is known for producing the world's first mechanical alarm wristwatch in 1947. This watch was named the Cricket and was soon nicknamed the "Presidents' Watch" because Eisenhower, Johnson and Nixon were loyal customers to the cricket. Many people consider preowned Vulcain watches, used Vulcain watches & second hand Vulcain watches all the same, but a Gray & Sons Vulcain watch is something different altogether. All our Vulcain timepieces are serviced and polished to like new condition and come with our twelve month warranty and "Like New for Life" policy. Our after sales service commitment is second to none in the world, backed by our six in house Swiss-trained watchmakers and jewelers.
