In a pool of conventional perfect circle watch faces, square watches stick out like a sore thumb. The nontraditional BN0042 rounded square watch by Braun has a digital and futuristic appeal due to its square face, but delivers the classic analog functions. This fusion is what makes this piece particularly eye catching.
The square face, which is 36mm by 36mm in size, is attached to a leather strap. It is available in black and gray. It's also waterproof and can resist up to 50 meters underwater. The mineral glass face is scratch resistant and comes with a guarantee of two years.
Designed by Dieter Rams, the head of designer of Braun, the BN0042 flaunts its form as well as function. Much of the collection designed by Dieter Rams is minimalistic, abiding by the belief that less is more.
