A perfectly square case can be a daunting move for someone who has only worn classic timepieces, but if you’re looking to dip your toe into the wider world of watch case shapes, the Shinola Guardian is a great transition piece — especially now that it’s over $200 off.

The Guardian, named after a skyscraper in Detroit that was built in the late 1920s, is a rounded square watch with Shinola’s easy to maintain Argonite 705 quartz movement. With a size of 41.5mm, it’s sizable without being imposing, and its black case, black dial and brown leather strap make it a suitable timepiece for everyday wear. 

You won’t find this big discount at Shinola proper, but at Jared, where they also offer free shipping and free returns, so you can have peace of mind if you’re intrigued but not quite sure about the shape or Shinola. But after personal experience with the brand, we bet you’ll be a convert to the American watchmaker.
