Vertex Watches M100

They have apparently sold out of the allocated watches for the USA.

Don did tell me there would be upcoming models that would be available for purchase, without the limited/referral thing. The M100 was done this way and made “special” as it’s the first watch and a tribute of sorts to the original.

I think the M100 is a great looking piece and I’d gladly own one. Let’s hope the future models are designed as well.

I hope they proved me wrong, but who knows what selling out the US allocation means. They might have only allocated 5 watches for us yanks.
You should buy one. I'd love to watch the flip go down a couple weeks later.

Some additional photos. It just looks better to me each time I see it. I hope to have one soon.

This is the impression when I saw the Oak and Oscar offerings in person. It was a $400 watch case for me. :scratch:
