OVER 100 YEARS OF BRITISH EXCELLENCE
Vertex was founded in 1916 by horological visionary, Claude Lyons. Born in London in 1885, he started working in the watch trade at the tender age of 17. Renowned for his brightness and ingenuity, he swiftly garnered an excellent reputation within the watchmaking industry. He set up Dreadnought Watches in 1906 by securing a £1000 loan from his father-in-law, and he paid it back in full within a year.
