1970s Vulcain Automatic Diver (Ref. T5627C)

The Vulcain brand has somehow remained an insider's-only brand despite its well-respected and celebrated nature within the world of horology. Of course, most people associate Vulcain as being one of the very first producers of the alarm watch, the Cricket, which also happens to be the watch worn by almost every President since Truman. However, Vulcain created a large variety of timepieces ranging from diving watches to chronographs, all of which with an aesthetic that is unique to the brand and feature high levels of craftsmanship.

The large and perfectly circular case is in remarkably well-preserved condition with no notable signs of previous polishing present and only gentle signs of use on display. The vibrant blue bidirectional rotating bakelite bezel is exceptional, showing no cracking or notable damage with only nominal age present. The case retains its original screw-down crown. The case back retains all of its factory markings in perfect condition. The watch comes supplied on a 2pc handmade leather strap.


The vibrant and fun matte blue dial features contrasting bright orange accents on the markers and around the date wheel, which provide an overall highly visible dial. The tritium lume plots have achieved a lovely creamy-golden patina, under UV light inspection the 2 o'clock plot does appear to have been previously repaired and the rest of the lume plots exhibit no degradation and remain original. The original hands match the dial perfectly, under UV light inspection the hour hand exhibits some minor cracking and remains stable while the minute hand exhibits no degradation.


None. The watch is keeping time, backed by a 1-year warranty on accurate timekeeping.
