The 50s Presidents’ Watch Classic Automatic is Vulcain’s entry-level watch, a three-hand timepiece with date. Its 1950s look is determined above all by the graduated dial, in two colours, blue or brown, with matching calf leather straps. It has a slim case, 8.6 mm thick, in stainless steel, 42 mm in diameter, and a sapphire caseback revealing the automatic movement. Water resistance is 50 metres, 5 bar.
The Vulcain V-56 movement is made by Soprod, with Côtes de Genève decoration and blued screws. It runs at 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hertz) and has a power reserve of 42 hours. The strap has a pin buckle.
