Watch Designs II: Are we returning to rectangular cases?  0 Comments


In an earlier post I commented on the development of how some high end watches are moving toward dialess watches. Over the past few weeks I saw two adds which, for the longest time reminded me of something but I could not put my finger on it. Then it struck me that they actually reminded me of each other.

On the left is Raymond Weil's Don Giovanni and the right is the new Rolex Cellini Prince. They are both rectangular cases with two subdials. I think this design is very classic and attractive (if you troll through Google Image search and look at some of the 1930 Rolex models).

In Basel 2005 - there was two distinct developments from watch makers. Those who continued to push complications to an all new level (multiple tourbillions on a watch) and those that returned to simple classic designs. The Prince is an exciting development and the return to a very classic line from Rolex.
