VULCAIN CENTENARY 1958 34MM VINTAGE STAINLESS ETA 2452 SILVER AUTOMATIC RARE 50sVulcain
For auction is a 1958 Vulcain Centenary 34mm automatic ETA 2542 17 jewel stainless steel. Some interesting facts about Vulcain: it was founded in 1858 and the Centenary, sharing a name with Centenary watches from other brands, commemorates that milestone. Vulcain was founded by a Ditisheim an important Swiss family that also founded Solvil and Movado. This piece very much evokes the period from which it comes with a disco volante inspired case with short thin lugs and recessed crown. It also has classic high 50's dapuhine hands and applied raised chapter. Very attractive and classic mid-century with excellent quality and high value.
