THE BRONZE 75

THE MP45

A Piece of History

In 1945 Vertex was commissioned to make an 'Ordnance timing watch' for the British War Office. When the war ended, Vertex was rationed on how many movements it could import and the Mono Pusher was never made.

Made for the Military

The Vertex M100 is a faithful homage to our Cal59 WWW made for the War Office during World War II. The M100 is available to serving military personnel and military veterans.

The M100 has a hand-wound, bespoke ETA 7001 mechanical movement with rhodium finish and Côtes de Genève decoration. It has a moulded Super-LumiNova ® dial and a brushed steel 40mm case, box crystal glass and is waterproof to 100m.

THE M100B

DLC or Diamond Like Carbon, uses a form of carbon which is blasted onto the surface and then rapidly cooled. It’s very similar to the way synthetic diamonds are created, hence the name. The resultant finish is extremely hard-wearing and perfectly complements the brushed finish of the M100.

The Vertex
Story

Founded over a century ago by Claude Lyons in London's jewellery heartland, Hatton Garden, Vertex quickly grew to become one of the most successful watch companies in Great Britain.

The Dirty
Dozen

During the Second World War the British Military selected Vertex, along with eleven other leading watchmakers, to supply the army with a new watch built to an exacting, bespoke design. The specifications were precisely what you would expect of a military watch - waterproof, luminious, regulated to chronometer level and rugged. On top of that, the dial needed to be black with arabic numerals to maximise legibility.

The select group have became known as the 'Dirty Dozen'.

Don
cochrane

Don Cochrane is the great-grandson of Claude Lyons and proud owner of Vertex Watches. His passion is to continue his great-grandfather's legacy and pay tribute to the Vertex story though the creation of a new generation of watches.

Our Design Philosophy

Vertex returns us to a more virtuous era. When actions spoke louder than words. When a reputation opened doors. When a gentleman’s word was his bond. When, in the words of Vertex’s original catalogue, it was ‘safe to judge by appearance, for the same standard applies throughout’.

Simple, elegant, dependable. Three words that describe not only those times, but also the Vertex M100. Its precise Swiss movement relying on the wearer’s winding it by hand to ensure it keeps perfect time.

The Vertex watch company and all it stands for – the proudly-held reputation, the uncompromising quality, the rugged elegance – are all present and correct in the new M100
