Rectangular Womens Watches

With so many watches looking the same, it’s nice to have a unique style of watch in your jewelry box. A rectangle faced watch is one of those special styles that stand out from the typical round designs that are so common.

Rectangular women’s watches typically have a case with a narrow diameter, making it ideal for women’s smaller wrists. The watch face itself is usually minimalist in style, although the watch itself is elegant and dressy.

The original rectangle faced watches were designed by Cartier and called a tank, so named because it was inspired by Renault tanks in the First World War.

Tank watches for women are highly coveted and have been worn by the likes of Jackie Kennedy and Princess Diana. But you can find styles similar to a woman’s tank watch that are made by other watchmakers.

Let’s take a look at our top picks for a rectangular women’s watch.

Design & Style

A rectangular watch is typically an analog style timepiece and they are having a revival at the moment (in 2021). Their art-deco style is experiencing a revival and rectangular watches look great on a small and slender wrist. Since a ladies rectangular watch follows the style of a Cartier Tank watch, the design and style follow suit. The Cartier Tank was unique in its look, which was simple and elegant. The strap is often seamlessly integrated into vertical sidebars on the case. The Cartier Tank also had a bold Roman numeral dial, although not all rectangular watches follow that style. Some have Arabic numbers, markings, or a combination of the two. Some have just an hour and minute hand, and others have a second hand, while still others have a date window. It’s up to you what you like on your watch face. Some of our choices of rectangular watches have a distinctly retro look, while others are more modern and dressy. The other unique aspect of a rectangular watch is simply in watching the watch hands. On a round watch, the hands look natural as they go around in a circle, following the shape of the watch face. Part of what makes a rectangular watch unique is the fact the hands go around a rectangle, making it somewhat of a conversation piece.
