Hip to be Square (Watches)

First, mood music:

Square watches.  They don’t get enough play.  Gone are the days when these used to be some Mr. Wizard calculator on a rubber band.  Instead, there are some good options for the guys that aren’t a round hole (that want a square peg – pardon the pun).  A square watch isn’t for everyone.  Do they look great with short sleeves?  Absolutely.  Do they look good with a tux?  Absolutely.  It’s not about the watch.  It’s more about the attitude.

(clockwise from top left)

1. Panerai PAM505:  I can’t say enough about Panerai.  More on this later…
2. Tag Heuer Monaco:  How about that blue face?  Not flashy, tasteful.  Don’t fret – this one will be an heirloom piece that your son/grandson/nephew will pine over as soon as he figures it out.
3. Braun Analog Square:  An awesome cost-conscious option that can be a part of any man’s rotation.
4. Hamilton Square Jazzmaster:  Hamilton does good work.  They hit the nail on the head with this jazzmaster.
5. Bell & Ross BR03-94:  The jazziest of the bunch – it looks like a spaceship.
6. Cartier Santos Dumont:  Another heirloom piece – the one that may not be an everyday watch…wait – why not?

    Been thinking of adding a square watch to the rotation. Actually more rectangular to be exact. Love the Cartier tank but a bit out of my price range.
