The Layer 24 watch embodies the clean restraint and modern industrial spirit of MINUS-8. Layer 24 is the result of an uncompromised vision to build a watch of individually layered stainless steel. 

This process took 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 Movement

Automatic Miyota 9120

40+ Hours Power Reserve

26 Jewels

 

The Layer 24 holds a power reserve of 40+ hours. 26 jewel bearings reduce friction within the watch case, allowing the highly durable parts to work flawlessly in a virtually maintenance-free environment. At 28,800 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 and the minute “ticks” of the second hand. 

 

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]

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
Silicone

Fitted with a highly durable, lightweight and waterproof 21mm silicone strap and an ardillon PVD-coated stainless steel buckle.
