Worn & Wound’s Highlights From This Year’s SalonQP

Perhaps rather surprisingly, London doesn?t play host to many sizable watch shows. Despite the many boutiques and watch enthusiasts on the streets, opportunities for the two to collide at a large scale event are limited. The annual SalonQP exhibition in November provides a welcome opportunity for an open and receptive watch lover such as myself to peruse, try on, and chat about a range of horological goodies all under one roof.
This year?s event was the first under new management and the shift in focus that the change in stewardship brought about also saw a notable absence of some of the show?s previous stalwarts (I?m looking at you, Nomos). This switch-up did make way for some fresh experiences, even if the three brands that made the biggest impact on me are not new?in fact, all three started out many moons ago, and with two of them experiencing a resurrection of sorts in recent years. 
First up is Vertex. Vertex was one of the original “dirty dozen” manufacturers producing purposeful wristwatches built to military specifications in the 1940s. Another victim of the quartz crisis, the company closed its doors in 1972. Fast forward to 2017, when Don Cochrane, the great-grandson of Vertex founder Claude Octavius Lyons, relaunched the brand with the M100?a tribute to a watch from over seven decades before.
The new MP45 from Vertex.

This year, Vertex looked back to an observation watch commissioned by the War Office in 1945 that never saw the light of day due to the end of the Second World War later that year. The MP45 is a monopusher chronograph in the same style as the M100 that preceded it, and it is the first watch to use the SW510MP single-pusher chronograph caliber from Sellita. The single pusher to start/stop/reset the chronograph is positioned above the crown on the right hand side of the asymmetrical case. The watch will be available with either a manual or automatic version of the SW510MP, with both variants visible through a display case back. The previous Vertex M100, which caused quite a bit of controversy with their “invite only” sales model.
Previous Vertex models have only been available via a slightly unusual and controversial “invite only” sales model, but the MP45 is being opened up to general sale, with a price of Ł3,750 and deliveries starting from March 2019. 200 units will be produced with the manual movement, and 200 with the automatic.

Looking at the list of exhibitors before the event, I was very keen to check out Ball?s offerings. It wouldn?t be fair to describe Ball watches as rare, but the dealer network and stock availability in the UK aren?t that wide-reaching.

Next up is actually a release from last year, the Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon AeroGMT II?a big name for a big watch. But for such a chunky watch (42 millimeters in diameter excluding the long crown guards and accompanying locking mechanism, and 53 millimeters from lug-to-lug), it wears surprisingly well?thanks ...
