Vertex Celebrates D-Day With The New M36 Field Watch

The British watch brand Vertex anticipates celebrating the 80th anniversary of D-Day, which will take place on June 6th, with the launch of the new Vertex M36.

June 6, 1944, is a historic milestone that changed the course of history, with the Allied forces defeating Nazi Germany and bringing an end to the 2nd World War. In this war effort Vertex, like many other watch brands, was one of the suppliers of watches to the British sailors and airmen forces.

The new M36 watch is a recreation of the vintage field watch that supplied the armed forces of that time. Still, it now combines a classic design with superior materials in a compact 36mm case similar to the original.

The watch comes in a round brushed stainless steel case with dimensions of 36mm in diameter, 11mm in thickness and 46.50mm lug-to-lug distance, smooth bezel, drilled lugs, box-shaped sapphire crystal, fluted crown at 3 o’clock and 100m of tightness.

On the black dial, we find applied ceramic Arabic numerals that, like the two central syringe hands, come filled with Super-LumiNova that glows green in the dark, a small seconds at 6 o’clock and a railroad minute track that also comes with luminescent hour markers.

The rear case hides the 37-jewel Sellita SW260-1 automatic movement, which comes with hacking seconds and a Nivaflex hairspring, operating at 28,800 Vph and offering up to 38 hours of power reserve.

The watch comes attached to a blade steel bracelet and an additional brown NATO-type leather strap. The pre-order period begins now and the first deliveries are expected to take place at the beginning of June, with a tag price of USD 2,787.
