Introducing The Timex Giorgio Galli S1 Automatic

Introducing The Timex Giorgio Galli S1 Automatic

Brisk Take

Launched last Friday, this is the most recent lead offering from Timex, the Giorgio Galli S1 Automatic. Reported as the main model in another arrangement commemorating Timex’s long term work with Giorgio Galli, plan overseer of the Timex Group, the S1 is present day, unobtrusive, and an unmistakable advance up from the last Timex you may have had on wrist. Driving into a greater cost point than is typically having an effect on everything for a brand like Timex, the S1 offers an extremely held and natural plan that is an altogether relaxed way for what adds up to an intense move from the 165-year-old brand.

Beginning Thoughts

Measuring 41mm across with a Metal Injected Molded 316L treated steel case that encompasses a programmed development, Timex considers the S1 the “most Timex” Timex at any point made. While, as far as I might be concerned, Timex will consistently be that first Ironman Indiglo I got in 1992, I’ll concede that the S1 is positively a work of art and immortal plan that plays well to Timex’s overall qualities. With a domed mineral precious stone in advance and a presentation case back in the back, the Giorgio Galli S1 is fueled by a Miyota 9093 programmed development. Ticking at 4 Hz and offering a 42-hour power hold, this 9093 has been adjusted to convey an exceptional plan for the winding rotor (shown below). 

Fitted to a manufactured elastic tie and offering 50 meters of water opposition, the lash decision truly guarantees the S1’s advanced and quieted impact. Truth be told, there are a couple of little twists in the plan to assist with hoisting the general contribution of the S1. To start with, the case highlights cutaway sections for the situation flanks and, second, an applied red sapphire stone over the six o’clock marker. While just a lone speck of shading on a generally monochrome issue, the impact offers interest, measurement, and levity – which are all useful in holding the S1 back from feeling excessively austere. 

The first passage in this new arrangement from the brain of Giorgio Galli, Timex is posting a MSRP of $450. From the outset, I was shocked, as it felt somewhat dear for a Timex; however that said, I think it bodes well for Timex to offer something exceptional and grow its top level into a game where brands like Seiko, Hamilton, and Victorinox are continually fighting for sub-extravagance spending. A comparable programmed from any of those brands will not cost any more uncertain (more) and the S1 absolutely feels like a level over the much-adored Timex Marlin. It’s comparative in soul, yet more pleasant on the wrist.
