    Watches with Unique Case Designs

    I'm fascinated by watches with unique case designs (the ones that are not too weird!) and wonder why so many of the established watch brands don't take more risks with the shape/design of the watch case, often sticking to plain round, rectangle, square or tonneau designs. Instead, I see more of the microbrands, like the Visitor examples below, pushing the norms. The sloping edges on those Visitor Calligraph Duneshore watches are striking, which may explain why there is a waiting list for the watches. The Zodiac Sea Dragon also offers a modestly unique case design. I wouldn't call either case design drastic, but just different enough to make you take a second look.

    Please post pictures of your watches with unique case designs/shapes and show me that my premise is wrong. I'd be happy to see other examples.

    Re: Watches with Unique Case Designs

    I'll add a couple other examples of somewhat unique case designs.

    This Glashutte Original Sixties is somewhat unique looking but also classically elegant. Alas, outside my price range.



    And Magrette has some interesting case designs:





    Also the Doxa Sharkhunter has a neat shape (and I think Seiko has something similar):

    Two nice choices. I always liked the Visitor watch and would have bought one had they not been so big. It's a great example of a brand creating a unique case and an unusual dial, at the same time. The Zodiac is sharp, too, but not very adventurous-- nice, but too much like other watches I have.
