Square watches or Round watches?
There are so many brands of men’s watches available in the market making it tough for one to make a choice. There are also features that one uses to select it while some look at the watch as a whole. Dial is the most important part in a watch. Other features like the chain band or leather can be changed but dial is the core of any watch. Watches are designed in different ways it is therefore ones duty to choose one that is best.
There are two popular designs of smart watches these are round-faced and square-faced. Round-faced watches sell better than square-faced most probably because of psychological reasons that is people’s semantic notion of what a watch should look like. Square watches are unusual unlike the round ones that even children are used to seeing them. A circular watch face operates by two hands making a revolution around a circle. The one that is short takes twelve hours while the longer one takes sixty minutes. Its internal components are made in such a way that they spin around an axis and the cases are circular.
A square-faced watch often sits better on the wrist and comfortably aligns with the strap. It is designed to create more surface area which gives a watch maker more room for functional features. This design also looks pleasing to the eye.
There are no much differences between the square and round-shaped watches. What is very important is that your watch should be big and in the centre. This way it will work for both circular and square faces. Square-faced appears simple its background images also play nicer when cropped into corners.
The square shaped watch is less popular but also more feminine. Round watches are very popular and make up 80 percent of the watches that are on sale. On the other side, square watches are liked by many women for example the well known Cartier Tank and Longines classic watches.
There is no difference between the square and round shaped watches, both serve the same purpose if it is not a replacement of a phone. One may think that making something round for example when thinking that reading a book or a text there is a problem that it will disappear off the screen more easily on a round surface which practically may not be the case so the square and the round shaped watches are the same.
Square shaped watch is design-led and tech while round shaped is familiar. Practically it is easier to do a square screen. It moves away from a watch form vocabulary to a more consumer electronics form vocabulary. Round shaped watches are familiar because psychologically people tend to think that a watch or a clock should always be round.
Both round and a square shaped watches have a function. They perform the same work. What vary is people’s preferences in terms of their look. Otherwise any design is all about compromises and trade offs to arrive at the most efficient final design. Smart watches naturally have a rectangular shape since it mostly shows texts.
