Vulcain Cricket

This sumbitch has a really loud alarm.

Not too shabby for $150.00

I got lucky. Bidding started off @ $129.00
Runs fine and alarm sounds like castanets being played by a Flaminco dancer with the scours. :x

These things are damned loud, I got pretty startled myself once, although it was my own watch ;-).
Good catch!

I was on eBay.

Found a seller in Monroe Maine who only had 11 sales to date.
Took a chance and snagged it.
Watch is probably 80-85% out of 100.
I am not a big gold tone fan but these can get pricey so I went for it.
The band is an el-cheapo and will soon be replaced with something better. Not sure to stay with black or go with another color on the strap.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I will post a photo after the replacement.

Yep- a nice brown leather or croc/gator strap would be the ticket.



Yup, that's my vote as well.
Nice pick up Kevin....

Thanks to all. Should be locating a brown lizard,croc,aligator or some other reptilian grain strap later this week. I will post a photo.
You know despite the reputation of us here ;) (including me) you guys are a nice lot to hang around with.
At least I know where I stand..and that means something. 8-)
