    Can we find a square or rectangular automatic at a decent price worth wearing?

    I did do a search on this, but have not hit paydirt. I would like to find a square or rectangular watch, steel case, automatic, more dressy than sporty, small better than large, for less than $500, and I'm wondering if such a thing exists. To give you an idea of my taste, if price were no object, I like the Nomos Tetra and I really like the Girard Perregaux Vintage 1945. While looking for something else, I came across the Epos 3376, which looks nice and runs on a 2824-2, but I can't find any detailed commentary on it, so I'm at a loss concerning fit and finish, etc. It's available here and there in the $400 range, and if anyone has anything good or bad to say about it, I would be grateful.

    To make this fun for everyone, I would love for folks to post pictures of any square or rectangular watches that they own or like. It seems that it is a less popular format these days, but I find them appealing.

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    Hamilton has a square Jazzmaster that looks pretty nice.

    Here are a few.





    Granted all the Seikos are "vintage" but they are legitimate options for your consideration.

    You've gotten lots of good suggestions. I'll second the Orient (I have two and am impressed with both for the price). I'll also say that the Epos I have (not a square/rectangular) is well made with a nice finish, so I don't think you'd be disappointed with them.

    Keep an eye out for Accutron 26b47, 48, 49 & 50 models. Although discontinued a couple of years ago they appear regularly on Ebay in new and near mint used condition. They use the respected 2824 movement, have a really attractive art deco style striped dial and a square crystal that is nicely curved and beveled.
