For a watch that isn’t stuck in the past, lend your wrist to MINUS-8. The San Francisco-based watch company crafts timepieces that blend industrial machinery and classic timekeeping with a bold, futuristic look. Their Layer Leather watch, which took over a year to develop, boasts a completely unique six layer effect. Think looking down at a stadium from above. The 316L bonded steel flows from the exterior to the interior in one seamless gesture. Each is constructed with a Seiko automatic movement, a vegetable tanned leather strap, and a 45mm case. It’s the obsessive attention to detail which makes the watch not only look good, but function like an investment piece. Available in three colorways, the Layer Leather watch from MINUS-8 is ideal for the guy looking for a timepiece that’s not dated.
