MINUS-8 Just Reinvented the Field Watch

MINUS-8 Just Reinvented the Field Watch

Since its inception, the field watch has been a simple and durable timepiece that can be relied upon for years. With the launch of the Anza Field Watch, MINUS-8 has put a fresh spin on an absolute classic. Eschewing bells and whistles for a clean aesthetic, the Anza is set to be your everyday watch, the watch you strap on regardless of what the day has in store. With a sub-$200 price tag and a smaller case (38mm), the Anza is MINUS-8’s most accessible timepiece yet, meaning it won’t break the bank and it will look good on almost any wrist. Drawing inspiration from modern machinery and an easy livin’ West Coast vibe, the Anza is both rugged and relaxed. Proof of that ruggedness can be found in the case and lugs, which are both machined from a continuous piece of stainless steel and ready to accept the strap of your choosing. Back the Anza now and get ready to meet your go-to watch.
