New squarestreet PLANO Watch | Minimalist, Scandinavian Design
squarestreet Introduce Their New PLANO Watch
Uniting minimalist Scandinavian design with the highest quality materials and movements, Swedish brand squarestreet have just released their latest wristwatch design, PLANO. The new watch adds some fresh touches to the brand’s already stellar line-up of timepieces.
PLANO’s design certainly lives up to its name, which means ‘flat’ in Spanish. The piece spans 36mm with glass made from hardened mineral, giving it a very modern look. PLANO protrudes only 6.7mm from the wrist, but it still holds a Swiss 715 movement by Ronda, which delivers a whopping 42 months of runtime. The watch’s 5ATM water resistance means it’ll be fine if you forget you’re wearing it when you jump in the shower. Forget you might, with the lightweight piece almost feeling like you’re not wearing anything at all.
Aside from the watch’s super slim profile, the distinctive dial of PLANO really sets it apart from the brand’s other collections. Featuring three dials and a date display, the watch is simple to read with concentric circles indicating the time. No detail is forgotten on the face, but it manages to retain a very clean look at the same time. As always with Scandinavian design, function goes hand in hand with form, and this absolutely holds true with the squarestreet PLANO watch.
The watch is available in a number of colourways, from the classics to an elegant and unique sky blue iteration too. The choice of either a polished gold or matte black case also provides wider variety in terms of the wearability of the designs. The polished gold versions are ideal for those days and nights you have to dress to the nines, or just when you need to be on the smarter side of casual. The matte black case combined with any of the leather straps makes these watches perfect for daily wear. Wherever you wear them though, both versions look entirely sleek and polished.
Founded by entrepreneur Alex Holm, squarestreet is a brand who marches to the beat of their own drum. Disregarding trends and what other labels are doing, they set their own standards for design and quality. PLANO, as well as the brand’s other pieces, combine the best of both the worlds of contemporary minimalism and traditional watch design. The result is a collection of very elegant and wearable timepieces with a unique flair.
