Vulcain 50s Presidents Classic: Two New Unique Colors

Vulcain 50s Presidents Classic: Two New Unique Colors


Last week, Vulcain introduced two new tones for the 50s Presidents Classic arrangement. It’s the most fundamental variation with three hands and a date at 6 o’clock. How about we do a brisk audit to examine the features of this watch.


More Originality

Vulcain acquainted the Presidents’ arrangement with make a traditional and formal watch plant however with these new tones they attempt to change the watch processing plant in a more exceptional and less moderate looking watch.

Classic Case

The steel case (316L) is exceptionally exquisite and remains consistent with the normal Presidents case. It keeps the water out up to 5 environments. On the front Vulcain set a domed sapphire glass. On the back they introduced a screwed caseback with a sapphire window to give a decent view on the apparatus. Albeit the adornment (côtes de Genève on the rotor) and marking is somewhat standard (brand name, loaded up with blue paint) it is a decent supplement.

The presentation caseback


The Presidents Classic is 42mm in breadth and with 8.60mm you could say it is really level. With the short bended drags it guarantees ideal fitting for most wrists. The case is flanked by an exemplary unobtrusive measured crown with a three-sided molded sawtooth hold. As enrichment Vulcain has decided for an exceptionally old style etching: the celebrated waffle design, which was a common method of enhancing crowns in the 1950’s/60’s. A true classical touch.

Dynamic Sunburst Dial

By adding a glossy silk sunburst hued dial, the watch processing plant truly changed into an eye-catcher. The sunburst intention varies in an exceptionally pleasant manner when taking a gander at the dial from various points, making a unique shading range. As said, it comes in two tones: berry conditioned blue (reference number 560156D35.BAC135) or umber conditioned earthy colored (reference number 560156D85.BAC136).

Hands and Other Indicators

The raised long rhodium files and Dauphine formed hands make tastefulness and profundity on the Presidents Classic. Like the packaging, these components are all mirror cleaned. The needle seconds hand clears easily and the non-sign end seems as though the plume end of a bolt which supports the qualities. Outwardly of the records you will discover mathematical moment pointers which are isolated by a thick line to broaden the indexes.

Matching Gradient Strap

The patina hued lash is made out of calf calfskin and matches the dial well indeed. The dull to light angle makes a novel look and is finished by hand. It feels exceptionally delicate and adaptable on the wrist. The lash tightens from 22 to 18mm. On the finish of the lash we locate a standard Vulcain marked hardened steel pin buckle.

Vulcain Caliber V-56 – Soprod Movement

The Presidents Classic is driven by the Caliber V-56, which represents a rethought programmed development from the Swiss development fabricate Soprod. The pre-owned development (A10) has a force hold of 42 hours, 27 gems and beats at an easily 28.800 beats each moment. It has a fast date-set. The development is the comparable with the  ETA 2892.

Pricing of the Sunburst Presidents Classic

The watch industrial facility has a sticker price of CHF3250 Swiss Francs. It is a decently section level value compared to the remainder of the Vulcain-family. Since these (new) sunburst shaded watch processing plant are a genuine specialty, I can’t straightforwardly name a comparable/less expensive other option. In the event that you’re willing to go through more cash you certainly should investigate the models.

The incredible waffle design on the crown


I like this watch industrial facility and consider it to be a genuine eye-catcher to grow/complete your assortment, not as a starter or day by day mixer. For me it would be a watch production line for uncommon events and it would really jump out with a strong dark/white/pants outfit. Sitting somewhere close to the easygoing and dress classification it is very adaptable. Actually I figure 40mm would be a superior breadth for this “semi” dresswatch to commit considerably more to the ‘exemplary’ looks. The particular tones make a one of a kind search for the Presidents Classic, yet in addition do limit the market. You truly scorn or love these tones, however there is another option: there might be a tone in the real assortment with more moderate combinations like a highly contrasting dial. . The sunburst dial and coordinating tie are the genuine power of this watch industrial facility A pleasant to-have would be if the date work came in as an alternative to make an even cleaner look and not ‘break’ the sunburst shaded dial. There is just a single angle which annoys me somewhat: the moment markers close to the files. I comprehend the motivation behind the separator-line, yet it simply looks all in all too swarmed and crunched. In spite of the fact that it’s an unmistakable watch industrial facility I would recommend this to somebody who is searching for a brilliant however exemplary looking watch processing plant with a medium spending plan. A genuine unique choice.
