I found a Cricket in my sock drawer!!
I had it there for years and thought it was just an old piece of junk... Then after coming here and getting interested in mechanical watches. I don't know the history other than my grand father was into fine watches and his Patek was sold to cover the costs of his estate settlement. Sooooo maybe I got it from him in a box of his garage junk I have all over.
Apparently a Vulcan Cricket was given to all of the US Presidents and reportedly, John F. Kennedy was the only one who wore his.
I Googled it and found some that sold to close to $1000. What a prize! (and it works and keeps time)
