MINUS-8, named after the GMT-8 time zone, is a very cool San Francisco based company that makes timepieces with a brutalist aesthetic, quality Japanese movements, and space-age details. One of their latest models, The Square, is something we're super into because of its impressive balance of futuristic details and heritage-inspired design.
Square pilot watches arrived on wrists about one year after Wright Brother’s first flight in 1903. With a military lean and easy-to-read dials, there's a reason this style hasn't gone anywhere in over 100 years. MINUS-8 managed to take the icon status of the classic pilot watch and time travel it to 2016 with sleek, upscale, and forward thinking design details. We love that kind of juxtaposition.
Featuring a 316L stainless steel case, 3-hand timing, date window, Japanese quartz movement, and a stunning vegetable tanned leather strap with raw suede back for comfort – this thing is the real deal. And at only $398, what's stopping you from hitting the "ADD TO CART" button?
