When looking at men’s watches, there are many aspects to choose from – brand, features, band and movement being among them. But the dial is the most important part in a watch as that is what sits on the wrist and is the eye-catching feature. Other features like the band can be changed, but the dial is the core of any watch. Watches are designed in different ways, it is therefore one’s duty to choose the look that best suits your style.
The two main designs of fashion watches are round-faced and square-faced. Round-faced watches are more common than square-faced, most probably because of psychological reasons - that is people’s semantic notion of what a watch should look like and even children are used to seeing them. Square watches are unusual and therefore more distinctive.
A square-faced watch often sits better on the wrist and more comfortably aligns with the strap. It is designed to create more surface area which gives a watch maker more room for functional and design features. The geometry of this design also looks pleasing to the eye.
This is the Icon Classic, a modern and durable square design in a men’s quartz watch.
There are not many differences between the square and round-shaped watches in terms of functionality. What is very important is that your watch should be big and in the center of your arm to allow for maximum viewing by you and others.
Round watches are very popular and make up 80 percent of the watches that are on sale, thereby making the square face watches more eye-catching in the market. Good examples the well known Cartier Tank models and Longines classic watches.
