Harry Truman personally owned Vulcain Cricket watch with rubber strap. Engraving on back of face reads, ''VULCAIN WATCH CO. - SWISS / STAINLESS STEEL BACK / 305005'', in addition to patent numbers. Vulcain Cricket watches were a personal favorite of Truman's and every President since has owned one, earning it the name of ''Presidential Watch''. The White House Press Corps gave Truman a new Vulcain Cricket the day he left office in 1953, and this particular watch is believed to be the one he wore during his presidency. Rubber strap is tan, but may have initially been white. Currently not running. Face measures 1.25'' in diameter, 8.5'' in overall length. Strap is worn, some rusting to buckle tongue, minor scratching to back of face, in overall very good condition.
