What do you do after you’ve designed such iconic products as the Nike Fuelband and the Xbox 360? If you’re ASTRO Studios, you start making stunning watches. The MINUS-8 Layer is professional and modern in appearance and is available in four different colorways—Black-Silver, Black-Red, Black-Gold, and Gray. The case is made with stacked PVD-coated stainless steel discs that have been layered to create cascading depth in the face. Designed out on the West Coast—MINUS-8 gets its name from the GMT-8 time zone—the Layer watch boasts a clean display with three-hand timing and a simple date window. Complete with a sapphire crystal face, an NFC-enabled proprietary silicon band, and a Japanese automatic movement, the Layer watch from MINUS-8 is a raw, crafted machine that blends design and technology to fit your lifestyle.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
