Building the next generation of timepieces

Designing watches that stand the test of time.

We started MINUS-8 in 2013, to challenge the commoditization of the analog watch market, push watch design forward, and deliver ultra-reliable products at attainable price points.

Our team is based in California and backed by years of industrial design and product development expertise. We are tired of the seemingly endless number of poor quality timepieces with uninspiring designs and are constantly thinking about the evolution of the analog watch market and what comes next. We’ve been experimenting with design and development techniques from industries outside of watchmaking since we started MINUS-8. This unique approach, combined with our understanding of the importance of craftsmanship, precision and attention to the finest details is what drives us as we design the watches of the future.

Original watches that are built-to-last.

Our #1 goal is to deliver watches our customers can rely on, no matter what. We view watches as long-term investments and create our timepieces for those that appreciate the importance of build-quality, material selection and all the other critical details that go into developing products that last. That’s why we design all of our watches in-house, source only premium materials, and use advanced manufacturing techniques in production. This unwavering focus allows us to deliver only the highest quality timepieces. 

MINUS-8 Watches are designed to be worn with confidence, everyday. We stand behind our products and want you to have the best experience possible with your watch. If you are ever unhappy, have any questions or just want to give us some feedback, we are accessible 24/7 at

MINUS-8 only exists because of the support of our amazing customers. Thanks for believing in what we are building and for being here with us on this journey through time.
