This month on aBlogtoWatch, you can enter for a chance to win a timepiece by the new San Francisco, California-based watch company Minus-8 (referring, of course, to GMT-8 as the time zone of San Francisco). The watch is called the Layer, and it combines a hip modern design with a Japanese automatic mechanical movement. Further, the Minus-8 Layer watch has an NFC-enabled silicon strap which includes a “near field communication” chip that allows the watch to interact with smartphones and other devices.

There are a range of things that NFC in a watch can be used for. One good example, is allowing the watch to “unlock” a phone when it is in near proximity to it. There are currently four available versions of the Minus-8 Layer watch. Each comes in a steel case colored different with PVD coating applications. The case is 45mm wide, with a sapphire crystal, and 100 meters of water resistance.

Inside the Layer watch is a Japanese automatic mechanical movement which is visible through a transparent caseback window. Namely, the movement is the Seiko caliber NH35A automatic, which offers the time and date. The four color versions of the Minus-8 Layer include the Layer Black-Silver, Black-Red, Black-Gold, and Gray. Each has attractive traditional proportions with an undeniably modern design unique to the brand. Retail price for the Minus-8 Layer watch is $448 and you have a chance to win one this month on aBlogtoWatch by entering below. minus8watch.com
