Brand: Vulcain
Typology: Vintage dresswatch
Year: 1950

Back in 1858 in La Chaux de Fonds, a small company was founded by Jacque Ditisheim and his three sons; Gaspard, Aaron and Maurice. Like many watchmakers during this time, Vulcain started out specialising in pocket watches before branching out into wristwatches for military use during the 1940s for use during the Second World War. During this era, the company was managed by Maurice’s son who renamed the company after the German name for God of fire and volcanoes.


This huge timepiece , of such a diameter, was a rarity for the time, considering that the average male size was 30mm.
The separate bridge movement, steel case and large, perfect cream dial make it a great presence on the wrist, with very little expense.
