Square Case Design
Inspired by classic "rally" watches of the past, the Square 2 Chronograph features a striking, square-case design with a blend of brushed and polished finishing. Stepped pushers and meticulous attention to detail make this watch a stand-out. A special, quadruple o-ring crown and screw-on caseback ensure a reliable 100M depth-rating. The elegant dial design and precision 2-eye Chrono movement provide a unique combination of form & function.
The Essential Chronograph
The Square 2 Chronograph gives you classic analog stopwatch functionality without unnecessary complication. At the touch of the start button, you can time everything from laps on the race track to the pizza in the oven. The red-tipped centre-second hand tracks seconds on the main dial, while the 60-minute register on the left sub-dial tracks minutes. (The right sub-dial displays the time of day on a 24-hour scale.)
I simply have more to say about this watch.
It's clear that I like this watch. I didn't mention the lume. The hands and indices are very narrow and svelte. It is not a diver's watch where the hands have a large surface area so you can light up a closet with your watch. The lume is amazing for a watch in this category. It is BGW9 and has an icy blue glow. Not the typical green of C3 Superluminova. It looks great and performs great. Keeping in mind this is not a diver. Additionally the prismatic effect of the beveled glass (sapphire) actually refracts the lume at the cardinal points of the watch. Making it very easy to orient and read in the dark. Serendipity. This watch needs more exposure. Momentum caters to more utilitarian field and diver watches and that is good. I dare say they went out on a limb with this one. I dare say I like it. I like it a lot.
Very Nice Homage
I am very impressed with this watch. It has "that" classic square case that all watch enthusiasts know. Additionally, the dial has accents of the Speedmaster and the hash marks in the corners a slight dash of Cartier. It actually works! Momentum has stepped it up here. The fit and finish are fantastic and more than commensurate of the price. I would have loved to see a Seiko Meca-quartz movement in this over the Miyota. That said. it gets a full five stars. The beveled sapphire crystal and the case finishing is excellent. I love mine and I sure hope this proves to be a successful watch for Momentum. I have 3 Momentum watches and they are tough as nails. I wouldn't have the heart to bash this one around though. That beveled crystal sits substantially proud of the case. That is what makes this watch special. I am not a rich man and this scratches that "Monaco" itch for me.
Great homage to that square racing chronograph that started it all. I love this watch. I think it’s a great value. I didn’t find the metal bracelet to be to my taste (nothing wrong with it per se), but I changed it to a light brown leather strap that I think suits this white dial version really well. It did have some sort of residue on the case when I received it, but a bit of eyeglass cleaner on a micro-fibre cloth and a few minutes of cleaning and it came off. No big deal. The white dial version has nice contrast between the hands and dial, so it’s easy to read the time. I’m not sure about the blue and black dials. I would like to see them in person. I almost went with the blue dial. It does look great, but I was worried about the lack of contrast with the hands in the pictures. The crystal is beautifully beveled and looks very cool. The hands seem to fall right on the markers all the way around the dial and sundials too. The date window is quite small, but still legible. Would have loved a magnified window, or no window at all, but it’s fine. Overall, a great watch. People will definitely notice this on your wrist. Love the auto-racing vibe.
