Squared and Sharp
Squared watches might be one of the rarest styles in the world of watchmaking, but this doesn’t mean that they don’t exist. And by squared, we don’t only mean the timepieces that feature a dial of a square shape, but also every watch with cases that take a shape with angles. Whether we’re talking about a square, rectangular or tonneau-shaped dial, the production of such a watch requires a high level of watchmaking skills – which makes the creation of such a piece a challenge in its own right.
This somehow explains the rarity of this style – which personally, I find quite charming when adorning the wrist of a man. That probably explains the reason that makes the adjective “sharp” quite suitable in the description of a masculine style, don’t you agree?
With this in mind, some watchmaking houses have decided to take the challenge and provide the world with some impressive squared creations. From Cartier to de Grisogono, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Patek Philippe and Parmigiani Fleurier – to name a few, the list is not short to say the least. If you’re ready to add this must-have style to your watch collection and take your style as a fashionable man to a new level, take a look at our list!
