We’ve been conditioned for decades to follow the design of round watches. But sometimes the endless parade of circular watches can get a little monotonous. But what about square watches?
A square-shaped watch is not only modern but pleasingly retro as well, offering something that’s both classy and contemporary. Square watches are perfect if you’re up for wearing something slightly unusual but still stylish.
Square or rectangle watches don’t get the props they deserve when compared to their rounded counterparts. They combine the classic style of yesteryear with a modern appeal and can be worn casually with jeans and a shirt, or dressed to the nines with a suit and tie.
Not sure which square-faced watch to go for? Here are some options you can check out.
More than just an accessory to tell time, a woman’s watch must look attractive and chic. A square watch is not only trendy, it shows that a woman isn’t afraid to wear something different.
Featuring outstanding quality, craftsmanship and design, these sqaure watches promise to up your fashion ante in the most sophisticated way. Have a quick overview of a few of the most sophisticated pieces available with a square dial.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Squadra Lady Duetto
Jaeger-LeCoultre has a full history of innovating Swiss watches. It is also known for manufacturing Reverso some 85 years ago which was introduced as a luxury reversible sports watch. The reversible case was invented for wearers to protect their watch’s face during polo matches. This iconic reversible design has been a statement timepiece since then.
The Squadra Lady Duetto has an elegant square face. It comes in a variety of options, for example, a white rear dial with a visible oscillating rotor. Some has a rose gold case that’s water resistant.
Moreover, the automatic self-winding movement is as precise and sophisticated as you would expect from any Jaeger-LeCoultre watch. Similarly, the impression this timepiece makes is as memorable as you would hope to get from a watch.
