I have often wondered this, seeing as most of the modern world is accustomed to reading a round clock dial, does that just make them easier to read? Excluding a digital dial, obviously, I find myself taking longer to pull time off my square dial watches.

Man oh man, this is a really intriguing question to tell
you the truth John. 馃槷 Guess It has become naturally
just a little easier to tell the time off of a round dialed
watch, or clock. However, am wondering if that would
be the case if square dials had been the go to shape
since the beginning instead. 馃槻o_O

I mean it just seems that round dials have maybe had
an edge for such a long time. And that we are just so
used to them. But in an alternate universe, you could
definitely see the opposite happening. 馃槃

Can actually imagine there are quite a few people
who just might prefer square dials in this universe
as well. 馃檪 ..Great question ! Wow, thanks again !!!

Don鈥檛 mention it John. 馃檪 ..Holy cow, imagine?! 馃槷馃槻o_O

I guess we would have all become accustomed to triangle
dials, and watches like the Ventura would be everywhere
on wrists out there. 馃榾
