Vulcain Aviator GMT Pilot Watch

This watch comes in a satin-brushed 42 mm-diameter steel case features a cambered glareproofed sapphire crystal and is water-resistant to 100 metres. It is fitted with a triple case-back acting as a resonance chamber and diffusing the sound of the alarm for a full 20 seconds. A pusher at 2 o’clock triggers the alarm, while a screw-lock crown at 4 o’clock serves to adjust the 24-hour worldtimer function.

Powered by the Vulcain Cricket V-10, this movement combines a mechanical alarm that is made famous by this brand. This manually-wound twin-barrel movement, equipped with the Exactomatic system, is endowed with a 42-hour power reserve.
