Luxury Watches Rectangular Box or Round Box?

The case of a watch serves to protect its movement but also to define its style, in fact, along with the dial, it is one of the elements that give more personality to this instrument.

Logically, when choosing between the different options, a classic dilemma arises: Opting for a luxury watch with a rectangular or round case?

Partly it is a very personal decision because it will greatly influence the taste of each person, usually lovers of classic watches immediately choose the round case.

But there are those who like to vary a little and are seduced by the idea of a rectangular case watch, because they really cause admiration.

The Art of Rectangular Clocks.

In these watches it is more complex to couple the parts of a movement and in turn creating the right dial design is a more difficult task.

It should be noted that the gears and round parts that are part of the movement of a watch when arranged together tend to make a circular shape.

That is why round watches are the ones that allow a better use of space,i.e., for functional reasons it is easier to create a watch with a round case than with another geometric shape.

Another reason why most clocks are round is that the earliest clocks were sundials and used to be this shape because of the silhouette of the sun, its movements on the dial of the sky and the rotation of the earth.

Although this is not limiting and a sundial can be made square or rectangular and the same goes for wristwatches.

However, it always remains under the same concept, although some of them break schemes such as the Tank Cintreé Esqueleto 2017 edition, a daring proposal a little different but without losing the design line.
