Vertex MP45

Vertex is previewing a new watch that is based on an ordnance timing watch that was requested by the British War Office in 1945. Developed in collaboration with Lemania, Vertex was limited to the amount of movements it could import when the war ended due to the company being based in Britain. When the company switched its focus to civilian watchs, development of the Mono Pusher watch was halted and was never produced. 73 years later Vertex is bringing back that design as the MP45, a watch that will be driven by the new Sellita SW510MP and will be limited to 200 watches in a manual edition and 200 watches in an automatic. 

The MP45 will be available in 2019.
