Vulcain to Unveil a New Cricket Movement Baselworld 2016

In 2015, Vulcain concentrated on the graphic development of its main collections, offering a number of redesigned manufacture models. This year, the Le Locle-based brand has chosen to focus more deeply on something at core of its identity: the Cricket calibre. During the Baselworld watchmaking trade fair, the Vulcain Watch Manufacture will present a new manufacture movement: the V-40, and launch new models which feature it.

This new calibre represents not only a technical improvement, but also a break with the aesthetic codes of the original 50s President’s Watch range, and adds a touch of modernity and originality to this iconic collection. Four new models will be unveiled at the annual watchmaking event.

In 2008, as homage to a rich and passionate 150-year history, Vulcain launched a unique model - the Anniversary Heart. Available as a limited edition, for the first time it revealed its heart through a semi-skeleton dial. It is now one of the centrepieces of the Vulcain range, and the Le Locle-based manufacture has focused on its development to offer a brand new version which will be unveiled at the Baselworld 2016 trade fair.

Remaining faithful to its history, the Le Locle-based Manufacture has added a new model to its “Métier d’Art” collection. Following on from “Le Vulcain” in 2015, Vulcain pays a fresh tribute to Greek mythology in the form of Poseidon, god of the seas and oceans. This new model represents both strength and elegance, two fundamental values that the brand’s designers keep firmly in mind when creating each timepiece.

Vulcain will be also exhibiting the new models from the Classic and Heritage families. Drawing their aesthetic inspiration from the models of the 1950s, these timepieces now represent two ranges which are inseparable from the history of Vulcain. The Manufacture has therefore quite naturally decided to revisit them, adding a dash of youthful style to their classic character.

This year, femininity and refinement will be the watchwords of Baselworld 2016. Vulcain has expanded its “First Lady” women’s collection with the addition of a new, unique piece elegantly set with precious stones, in an ultra-limited edition of just 10 pieces.
