    Dennisteel+Vertex+Breguet hands=

    One very happy Matty


    Something told me to check out Ebay on Sunday night, just a feeling that there may be a bargain out there to be had

    I was right

    The strap is just something I threw on whilst I wait for something more suitable but it enables me to enjoy this beauty

    It shows some age but that's ok with me

    I was the second bidder and got this for the price of a take away meal for four either I've got a bargain or I've missed something glaringly obvious

    Hope you like

    Very nice. You are right to be happy though I'm not sure about those hands. Threw on huh? You've clearly been spending far too much time on the trendier forums ;)

    Great watch Matt, these are kind of missed on ebay. I paid just about the same as you did for my Record red 12 model!

    You mean F11 isn't one of the Trendier forums??? I thought as the fashion watches are starting to resemble some of our vintage models, that would put those of us who wear the originals at the forefront of the trend.

    Re: Dennisteel+Vertex+Breguet hands=

    I have just started an old Vertex after very many years. I am going to attempt to post pictures. Keeping perfect time!
    Is there any way I can date this watch? Can someone help me?
    It has the name VERTEX on the face and directly underneath a sort of arrow pointing to the VERTEX (if that makes any sense!)
    The hands are brass filled with green luminous paint.....and the circular second hand is in the bottom half of the watch!
    On the back (it's a steel screwed case) it has the following:
    W.W.W
    Underneath is that same arrow head!
    A 4751
    35 | 7667

    On one of the lugs holding the strap there is stamped 472.
    would really appreciate some feedback
    Thanks
    JamesBotch

    PS How do I post pictures?

    You have a Vertex Watch Wristlet Waterproof there by the sounds of it my old fruit, very nice indeed and quite sought after by some collectors as it's part of the dirty dozen.

    All we need now is pic's to oggle.

    Any luck with these piccis can you possibly make an identification? Where do you guys get all your information from?

    Yes James that is indeed a Vertex WWW and a very nice one too, as for the info it's picked up over time. The Interweb is a great place for research but even that cannot beat the collective knowledge of the folks here on the Vintage and pocket watch forum on Watchuseek.
