About Minus 8

Every watch is a time machine. We design ours in a place that inspires us - the West Coast. MINUS-8 is named after the GMT-8 time zone.

The watch collection we created combines the best production methods with world-renowned industrial design. Through continuous exploration and refinement our aesthetic has emerged, one that embraces the West Coast. We have created watches that are raw and crafted machines and that possess a clear point of view.


MINUS-8 respects the drive that dreamers, entrepreneurs and trendsetters must possess as they pursue their passions and work to manifest their own destiny. We seek aesthetic direction by presenting the most essential functionality clearly. MINUS-8 celebrates relevance before heritage. Progressive, Basic, Bold. Established Now.
