    Vertex/Herald?

    Recently picked up a Vertex 1930's watch - pictures below.
    However i note the movement is marked "Herald" and 2 x stars on the mainspring ratchet wheel, which puzzles me.

    The movement has 2 adjusts and keeps VERY good time!

    I'm assuming maybe this was the retailer? I seem to recall somewhere the Herald Watch Co? but as a retailer not a manufacturer of movements.

    The watch and case are marked and signed Vertex with case serial number and date coded for 1930 - foreign import marked .925 for silver.

    The "Herald" is the odd bit.
    Any clues? anybody?

    Unfortunately I cannot provide you with any information, but I must say, that is a marvellous-looking watch!

    And the hallmarks are London import marks for 1930, which matches your SN .

    Thanks for the information - as so often the case it's very difficult to pin done why certain things are as they are in vintage watches. And this one is no exception.
    It IS however a beautiful watch and wears like a dream. It has a very smooth curved case back and very comfortable being a nice size at 38mm x 22mm.
