Barack Obama's Vulcain Cricket Anniversary Heart Watch

Swiss watch maker Vulcain presented President Obama’s Vulcain watch




(Barack Obama's Vulcain Cricket Anniversary Heart Watch)

Even thought Barack Obama usually wears his Jorg Gray 6500 watch, he does have other timepieces. Since the 1950s, it is a Vulcain tradition to give out watches to US Presidents and so, in order to continue with this habit, the latest timepiece they've sent to the oval office is quite stunning. President Barack Obama received a precious Stainless Steel Vulcain Cricket Anniversary Heart Watch. This unique timepiece is part of the classic Cricket Watches named after their loud alarms. According to the mechanical Vulcain Cricket V-18 movement’s alarm, it is one of the loudest on the market and it is also easy to set through the upper crown on the right side of the watch (using the central ring on the dial). The wristwatch also features a 42mm wide case, also water resistant to 50 meters.

The retail price of the stainless steel version of the Vulcain Anniversary Heart Watch is about $6,500. It is unclear whether versions such as the pictured one with the message to Barack Obama will be available at all to the public, as it is likely a one-off version reserved for the President himself. The Vulcain Anniversary Heart watches come in various tones as well as in 18k gold.
