Since timepieces were invented, round cases have made up the overwhelming majority of watches in the market, simply because the gears and springs in a watch movement are by default, round, and a round dial provides optimal space for the rotating hands to be read intuitively against a circular train of indexes. Also, round watches are the easiest to make water-resistant because the case can easily be screwed tight. But the alternatives to the organic, circular watch case are inseparable from, and at times, even seminal in the history of watchmaking.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
