Vertex coming back ?

Today I found an interesting little article in the Financial Times. It appears the British watch brand Vertex is about to be re-launched.

According to the article Don Cochrane (of Netjets) is hoping to relaunch the brand established by his great-grandfather , Claude Lyons, in 1916. The company was one of the iconic “Dirty Dozen” supplying military watches.

The aim is to build 60 military styled watches based on wartime models. These will be initially offered to selected people at £2500.
