Radiant yet profound, the new dial of the Chronograph 1970s wraps itself in layers of mystery. To some, it evokes the iconic British Racing Green; to others, it whispers tales of more mystical and cultural depths.

The Chronograph 1970s races beyond convention with its unique “Step-Case” design, spanning 38 mm in diameter and 12.40 mm in thickness, igniting a passion for the vibrant green. Under the hood: a manual SW510 M BH movement, boasting a 63-hour power reserve, fueling the excitement of collectors with its swift precision and captivating lines.

Its polished 316L stainless steel case measures 38 mm in diameter, and a 12.40 mm thickness. The timepiece features a semi-gloss sunburst dial in Blue, Black, Silver Panda, and Salmon, with white or black indexes.

The double domed sapphire has an anti-reflective coating. The timepiece in question is a marvel of precision engineering and classic design. With a water resistance of 5 ATM (50 meters), it is suitable for everyday use and can withstand splashes or brief immersion in water. The heart of the watch is the SW510 M BH manual winding mechanical movement.

The frequency of the movement is an impressive 28,800 vibrations per hour, ensuring accurate timekeeping. Additionally, the power reserve of 63 hours means it can run for over two days on a single wind.

The strap options cater to different tastes, available in either a classic leather or an elegant crocodile-pattern, both secured with a pin buckle.

The recommended retail price reflects the quality and craftsmanship of the watch, set at €2,500 / CHF 2,500 / $2,650.

Vulcain, a gem of a family enterprise, has shone since its inception in 1858 with the creation of intricate complication watches. This is the story of two talented watchmakers, the Ditisheim brothers, and a brand named after the Roman god Vulcan, the deity of fire and the forge. Rooted in the Neuchâtel mountains, the cradle of Swiss precision watchmaking, the Manufacture quickly carved its niche by producing minute repeaters, grande and petite sonneries, and perpetual calendars. These horological marvels, celebrated with accolades at prestigious  international exhibitions, embody the pinnacle of watchmaking excellence.

Vulcain derives its name from Roman mythology, specifically that of the god of fire and patron of blacksmiths: Vulcan (or Hephaestus, as known to the Greeks). There’s no quenching the fire that fuels the new beginning of this centuries-old brand. On the contrary, it is on the glowing embers of a past filled with riches that tomorrow is forged.
