I remember that when I was a kid, it was a big deal when my dad got a Seiko analog watch that had a built-in alarm clock. It was definitely something different, and it looked better than a lot of digital watches. The Vulcain Nautical Cricket Watch was an early analog alarm watch from 1970, which is now being remade.

Dubbed the Vulcain Nautical Seventies, the reissue has a 42mm stainless steel case that’s 17.6mm thick and comes with both a black leather and orange diving strap.

The alarm is a Cricket caliber, and its face has shaded rings to calculate diving decompression times. And speaking about diving, the watch is water resistant to a whopping 300 meters.

The Vulcain Nautical Seventies Watch will be released soon, with only 300 of the pieces to be produced. The price hasn’t yet been announced, but other Vulcain watches sell for $6,000 to $10,000.
