Vulcain Anniversary Heart Calendar

Back in 2008, as a tribute to its 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.
This new collection, recognisable by its semi-skeleton dial, reveals a glimpse of its heart: the charcoal grey hand-wound V-16 alarm movement. Featuring a fluted 42 mm case and a sapphire back adorned with the iconic “V” for Vulcain, this model unveils a specially finished date disc, which adds a unique touch of dynamism.
