Timex waited until the latter days of December to drop a trio of new automatic timepieces straight from the brain of their prolific creative director, Giorgio Galli, and the timing seems significant. Sure, it could just be the supply chain crunch, but coming at the time of year when we’re all making resolutions and big plans for the year to come, it could easily be read as an invitation to embrace a less-is-more philosophy in 2022. Packing a Japanese automatic movement, a sleek, refined case, and a price well under $500, the new Timex Giorgio Galli S1 38mm could be the only watch you really need.
If you’ve been following the steady stream of masterful creations coming out of Timex HQ in recent years, Giorgio Galli is a name you may already know. For the uninitiated, the Timex creative director has spent the last decade transforming the brand from a beloved-but-unfashionable maker of cheap quartz watches into a global player in contemporary timepiece design. Under Galli’s direction, Timex brought in automatic movements, launched a series of collabs with designers like Todd Snyder and Nigel Cabourn and mined the archives for iconic reboots like the Marlin. In 2019, Galli upped the ante yet again with the Giorgio Galli S1, whose streamlined steel case, “sunray” brushed dial and high-quality Japanese automatic movement made for the most advanced and luxurious Timex ever.
