  • Catalogue Essay

    The Citizen Campanola Grand Complication houses the most popular complications that one can dream of, but in a quartz movement instead of a mechanical movement. This “made in Japan” wristwatch offers the wearer a chronograph, moonphase indicator, perpetual calendar and minute repeater. The quartz movement that Citizen created for this watch is completely hand assembled and offers the reliability and smooth operation that a quartz movement can deliver. The bold and massive look of the case of this unusual wristwatch is further enhanced by its tridimensional dial with dark burgundy center beautifully contrasting with the silver rings and numerals.

    In 1947, the “Fabrique de Montres Vulcain” launched the first genuinely operational alarm wristwatch. Up to this time, no other watchmaker had ever succeeded in developing a standard-size movement capable of producing a sound powerful enough to awaken its owner. The strident sound emitted by the watch led the watchmaker to name it “Cricket”. Over 50 years later, Vulcain presented a new model featuring the historical complication coupled with a dual time zone aimed at aviators or travelers wishing to keep time in two different time zones and benefit from an alarm to remind them of their important meetings.
