WHAT IS A SQUARE SHAPE WATCH
Just like the name suggests, it is referring to a watch in the shape of a square. For it to be defined a square, it must have equal length on all four sides. On top of that, it also must have a straight angle, 90 degrees at every four corners. Therefore, an apple watch with soft edges is still considered as a square watch in our opinion.

Whenever you think of a square watch, we can’t help to think about Heuer’s Monaco series. Monaco, a men’s chronograph perfectly describes a square watch, with its sleek and minimalistic design as shown above. We especially love the combination of square dials with round index markers. On top of that, we also love the details added on to the sub-dials, making it square as well.
