Bringing It All Back Home - Vulcain Part 1

What you are about to read will not be entirely objective. A real love story never can be.
Earlier last week I found myself in the beautiful villa that is now home to Vulcain in Le Locle, Switzerland.

Regular readers will know that I have written pretty exhaustively about Vulcain, and in particular the Vulcain Cricket and its standing as the Watch of the Presidents. And it has been interesting, because in truth it seems as if there have been three different narratives or histories all competing for recognition as the true story. And thanks to the amazing Carla Duarte at Vulcain, I will now be able to share with you, Gentle Reader, the whole story. Because in truth? All three stories are certainly true, but each is only one piece of the bigger story.
So stay tuned, this is the first in a special, extensive series on Vulcain, the Presidents, and the families who cared for the Vulcain Cricket as true stewards and ambassadors not only for a watch, but for all that this humble alarm watch has come to represent.

Stay tuned!
