Vulcain recently released a sweet re-issue of an old watch from the 50’s, with an updated 42mm case diameter. This watch is the Vulcain 50s Presidents Chronograph. It features a heritage dial, and indeed it really looks like a blast from the past.

This new model from Vulcain is available in Stainless Steel as well as 18K Rose Gold. Both models feature Rose Gold hands, which I think pair up really nicely with the black, antique lumed dial. I am such a sucker for re-issued vintage style watches and Vulcain is a brand of watch I have been considering for a very long time now.

This is truly an outstanding piece that I would love to get my hands on to see in person. I really want one!
