The cornerstone of the collection, the Layer represents the industrial aesthetic of MINUS-8. Layer is the result of an uncompromised vision to build a watch of individually layered strata. This process took us over a year to develop and resulted in a striking watch that communicates luxury and precision. The result is a stadium effect of 6 layers of 316L bonded steel flowing from the exterior to the interior of the watch face uninterrupted in one unified gesture.

THE TECHNOLOGY

THE TECHNOLOGY

CASE
316L Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is a steel alloy with a minimum of 10.5% chromium content by mass. It has a natural resistance to magnetic interference, stains and corrosion, which is greatly enhanced through PVD coating. Of the 150 available versions of stainless steel, a very specific type, 316L (the “L” stands for Low Carbon) was chosen for its receptiveness to extremely tight machining tolerances. The watch case is fitted with four individually PVD-coated stacked rings unique to our Layer family.
CRYSTAL
Sapphire Crystal

On a 1 to 10 scale with a diamond being a 10, sapphire crystal measures a 9. Approaching the incredible strength of a diamond, sapphire crystal lenses were chosen due to their remarkable scratch-resistance, clarity and strength; the same material used for shatter-resistant armored vehicles and tactical body armor.
WATER RESISTANCE
10 ATM

Capable of withstanding pressure equivalent to depths of 10 atmospheres or 100 meters, the watch is water resistant and suitable for swimming and snorkeling. Each watch is factory pressure tested and evaluated to insure the highest standards of water resistance.
FINISH
Physical Vapor Deposition

PVD is an industrial process originally developed by NASA that is used to precisely transfer a vaporized source material in very thin coatings onto a part within a vacuum chamber. The process is most commonly used for a variety of machine elements with strict performance requirements such as surgical tools and drill bits. PVD coatings can be harder and more corrosion-resistant than coatings applied by an electroplating process.
STRAP
Vegetable Tanned Leather

The Layer Leather is fitted with an adjustable vegetable tanned leather strap and a traditional stainless steel buckle. Raw suede back for comfort.
MOVEMENT
Seiko Automatic NH35A

The Layer holds a power reserve of 40+ hours. 24 jewel bearings reduce friction within the watch case, allowing the highly durable parts to work flawlessly in a virtually maintenance-free environment. At 21,600 vibrations per hour, the Layer 24 has a high accuracy of time keeping. The balance wheel’s oscillations are viewable through the clear sapphire crystal face back.
