The M36 uses top sapphire crystal, box-shaped for a distinctly vintage look while offering unbeatable scratch resistance. The dial of the watch keeps the Vertex theme with it’s moulded X1 Super-LumiNova numerals and finely printed indexes that ensure visibility in low-light conditions.

“The M36 is not just a watch; it’s a piece of history. As we mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day, we’re reminded of the crucial role that precise timekeeping played during those pivotal moments. The M36 is a tribute to the bravery and the enduring spirit of those who served.”
