Maurice Ditisheim Fabrique Vulcain launched a line of wristwatches bearing the name “vulcain” in 1894.
However, this was not the first production for Ditisheim.
He had been producing pocket watches in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, since 1858.
The year 1947 proved to be the most important year for Vulcain when the “Cricket” was introduced.
The Cricket was the company’s first wrist alarm watch.
