We feature a lot of watches here on the pages of The Coolector and it has been impossible not to take note of just how many Scandinavian watchmakers have been emerging over the last few years built upon the back of minimalistic design and first class craftsmanship. Squarestreet is another name you can add to that list and they’ve thoroughly propelled themselves to the top table in our opinion with the wonderfully eye-catching and impeccably crafted Squarestreet Novem39 Watch.
With a retail price of a mighty reasonable $395, the Squarestreet Novem39 Watch ticks all our boxes here at Coolector HQ and for any man in the market for a devilishly dapper new timepiece in 2019, it is sure to tick yours as well. This fantastic looking accessory from Swedish watchmakers, Squarestreet, is so-called because Novem is Latin for the number 9 and it refers here to the 9 phases of the moon, but has been an auspicious digit in the history of many ancient cultures.
The Squarestreet Novem39 Watch is positively dripping in understated elegance and is the sort of timepiece that we typically find ourselves gravitating towards at The Coolector. This majestic looking accessory from the Swedish watchmakers draws inspiration from a wide array of sources, but one stands out in particular – namely, the Hallwyl Museum in Stockholm. Both Palace and practical residence at once, with sweeping eccentric forms as well as sharp geometries, it embodies both the classic turn of the century elegance along with many technically advanced, and for it’s time, futuristic features such as telephone, electricity and central heating.
It is immediately clear that the Squarestreet Novem39 Watch ($395) is one mighty striking timepiece that will turn heads everywhere you go and will be the perfect day-to-day watch for any man looking for refined sophistication. This exemplary offering has an asymmetric case, hidden pushers, true sapphire crystal lens, custom moon phase and an aesthetic all of its own. The classy visuals of this timepiece really do set it apart from the competition and it’s not difficult to see why Squarestreet are really beginning to make a name for themselves in the world of horology.
So many first class features aren’t typically found in a timepiece that comes in under the $500 mark but you get plenty of top quality components with these Squarestreet Novem39 Watches. They boast a 316L stainless steel casing, sapphire crystal glass with AR coding, a top class Swiss Ronda 706.3 movement which delivers excellent accuracy and performance and a 5ATM water resistance which means you’ll be able to take this timepiece on all your outdoor adventures without worrying about its robustness.
Design Orientated Timepieces
There is a decidedly Scandinavian vibe to the aesthetics of all the Squarestreet watches and the brand strives to deliver contemporary timepieces with one foot in minimalist modernity and the other firmly rooted in traditional wristwatch aesthetics – the Novem39 Watch is an embodiment of these efforts. If you love the look of moon phase watches and want one on your wrist for under $500, there aren’t many better options on the market than this from Squarestreet.
We love Scandinavian design here at Coolector HQ and this is particularly true of timepieces so it was inevitable that we were going to fall pretty hard for this Squarestreet Novem39 Watch. Gloriously elegant and wonderfully well priced at under $400, it’s easy to see why these are already flying off the shelves and with plenty of different designs and styles to choose from within this collection, chances are this will be your new watch for 2019.
