squarestreet Aluminum Timepieces
When it comes to EDC watches, we often recommend something heavy duty (like a dive watch) mainly for utilitarian reasons. But if your day-to-day doesn't involve frequent deep-sea diving, an overbuilt steel watch is probably overkill—especially if you can't stand the weight of something constantly on your wrist. In that case, squarestreet's aluminum watches might be more up your alley.
This is no tool watch, but rather, a good-looking watch for design geeks and minimalists. It's sleek, low-profile, and comfortable thanks to a combination of a featherweight aircraft-grade aluminum case, completely flush caseback, and supple leather strap. Its 8mm thick, 42mm case houses a Swiss Ronda quartz movement and subtly ribbed watch face. The face's smaller markers, round date window, and seconds subdial lend well to the watch's overall minimal and unobtrusive design. All in all, the watch weighs in at a hair over 30 grams.
The watch does lean more towards the fashion accessory side of the spectrum, but its unique visual design and barely-there weight might make it worthwhile if you're after a stylish, casual timepiece. You can check out the full range of case and strap colorways from squarestreet at the link below.
