The Manufacture in Le Locle presents the Vulcain “At The Races” to enable horse-racing enthusiasts to keep their favourite within reach at all times. Concealing the famous Vulcain Cricket calibre, the cloisonné enamel dial may be personalised at will.
The new “At the Races” by Vulcain offers horse-racing connoisseurs the pleasure of wearing their passion on their wrist. On this eminently personalised timepiece, designed to fulfil the most precise requests, the dial may be decorated according to its owner’s wishes. The jockey’s livery and all the other signature features of a given racing stable are reproduced using the delicate technique of cloisonné enamel that has become a house speciality, perfectly mastered by Vulcain and reserved for its most exclusive strictly limited editions.
Galloping at top speed, the slender yet powerful outlines of the horse evoke the searing pace of the race. In the background, the outer edges of the dreamy blue sky are tinged with pink, while the classic white fencing and hedges in the background set a vivid scene for such competitions.
The Vulcain “At The Races” is equipped with the proprietary Cricket V-10 calibre, a mechanical hand-wound movement that displays the hours, minutes and seconds in addition to the alarm function. This advanced version of the legendary Cricket calibre is distinguished by its meticulous finishing including bridges decorated with “Côtes de Genève”, circular-grained or polished plates and blued screws.
The surfaces of the twin barrels – one for the movement and the other for the striking mechanism – feature a finely snailed motif and respectively provide a 42-hour power reserve and a 15-second alarm. Water-resistant to 50 metres, the 18-carat rose gold case measuring 39 mm in diameter is equipped with a double back acting as a resonance chamber. Louisiana alligator strap with matching pin buckle. The Vulcain “At the Races” is by definition a highly exclusive watch. It is issued in a limited edition of 30 in 18-carat rose gold.
