Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden, squarestreet excels at steadfast mechanics and sophisticated style, all at an unbeatable price. Following up on the success of their wildly popular SQ38 Plano, the brand has now launched a brilliant newcomer, SQ39 Novem. Named for the nine phases of the moon (“Novem” is Latin for “nine”), the Swedish chronograph accordingly flaunts a moon complication, manifested by an eye-catching aperture on the dial. Also present is an asymmetric 40mm case and a striking overall attention to detail.
It took 30 months of research and development to arrive upon Novem’s glorious design. Along the way, squarestreet sought inspiration from The Hallwyl Museum in Stockholm, where the architecture is both classical and forward-thinking at once. Along similar lines, Novem strikes a deft balance between familiar and avant-garde geometry. In addition to the stunning moonphase complication and asymmetric case, the watch features engraved, intersecting lines on the dial, hidden pushers, and a padded calf leather strap with gold buckle. Under the skin is reliable quartz movement.
Novem is already well past its goal on Kickstarter, so this dream is most definitely becoming a reality. Get in on the action now, and you gain access to some choice discounts on this already affordable silhouette, which comes available in a range of different colour combinations.
