Minus 8: Layer 24 wristwatch

Minus 8: Layer 24 wristwatch

San Francisco watch makers Minus-8 pride themselves on keeping alive the functional excellence of traditional watchmaking, by offering fine timepieces which can be used for a lifetime, and passed down from generation to generation.

Layer 24 embodies the clean restraint and modern industrial spirit of Minus-8 and follows the pursuit of an uncompromised vision to build a watch of individually layered stainless steel.  The result is a stadium effect of 6 layers of 316L bonded surgical steel flowing from the exterior to the interior of the watch face, uninterrupted in one unified gesture.
