Minus-8 Layer Leather Watch

Enter MINUS-8, a San Francisco-based watch brand putting a spin on classic designs.  Designed by ASTRO Studio, the industrial design firm behind the XBox 360 and the Fuel band, MINUS-8 takes its name for the West Coast time zone, GMT-8. 
 
As long time designers of well known products in the market place, ASTRO Studio wanted to put a spin on exciting watches and reinterpret them with a futurist and architectural mindset. Thus MINUS-8 was created to offer a new spin on classical watches designs and offer new construction techniques. The MINUS-8 watches are bold but minimalistic.

The cornerstone of the collection, the Layer, represents the industrial aesthetic of MINUS-8. Layer is the result of an uncompromised vision to build a watch of individually layered strats. This process took over a year to develop and resulted in a striking watch that communicates luxury and precision. The result is a stadium effect of 6 layers of 316L bonded steel flowing from the exterior to the interior of the watch uninterrupted in one unified gesture.

The Layer features a Japanese movement, 45 mm diameter, 316 L stainless Steel case, a PVD-coated stainless steel finish, 3-hand date window, 40+ hours of power reserve and a vegetable tanned leather band.
