Timex’s New Watch Is Designed to Be the Most ‘Timex’ Ever

 

The most “Timex” TimexWhat does that even mean? Well, to Galli, it means the new watch that just released this week. The project is so close to him that it even bears his name: the Giorgio Galli S1 Automatic. It’s an elevated timepiece, especially for Timex, with a skeletonized stainless steel case housing a Miyota 9039 automatic movement, and a price tag of $450. The strap is made from an ultra-durable synthetic rubber, and finished with a riveted strap-keeper instead of a loop. Under a domed K1 mineral crystal, the silver-tone, brushed-metal face features a synthetic ruby set just above the six o’clock position.”

EXCLUSIVE: INTRODUCING THE TIMEX SNOOPY SPACE TRAVELER MARLIN AUTOMATIC

It really shouldn’t be a surprise that Timex has a way of tapping into our collective nostalgia receptors in a way that few other brands can. They’ve shown over and over again in their recent releases that they have an innate understanding of how to reach into the past and make something old feel new again. The Q, their huge hit watch from earlier this year, made you long for the 1980s even if you didn’t personally experience them. The Marlin, which in many ways reignited Timex as something more than an afterthought among contemporary watch heads, was an extremely successful take on their classic 1950s dress watch, dripping with Mad Men style and charm. And their series of watches celebrating the 50th anniversary of the moon landing released earlier this year, with a certain iconic beagle on the dial, is another example of Timex showing up in an almost Forrest Gump-like way to make us think lovingly of the past. Their new Marlin, featuring that same beagle, feels like another well-executed play on our continued desire to commune with an earlier time.

This Affordable, Automatic Timex Watch May Be the Brand’s Best Yet

“According to the brand, the new S1 Giorgio Galli Automatic watch is “the most ‘Timex’ Timex ever,” and we don’t disagree — given its specs and finishing, the value-to-price ratio is impressive, and that indeed is very “Timex.” The brand’s design director Giorgio Galli, who has given his name to the watch, apparently had carte blanche to make exactly what he wanted to, and it shows in a range of thoughtful details that only an experienced, watch-obsessed designer could have emphasized.”

Timex Re-Released Their T80 Watch With a Pac-Man Twist

“What makes the T80 timepiece so successful is its versatility and spot-on timing for both trend and demand. Retro-style sneakers and activewear have made a major comeback, so it’s no surprise that ‘80s style (like broadened shoulders and relaxed tailoring) would make its way back into fashion, too. Seriously, if fanny packs can be trendy, the opportunities are endless, amirite?”

Like Greats Sneakers? Then You’re Gonna Love Their New Watch.

“Back in the day, we went to Greats for one thing: a well-priced, unique, minimalist sneaker that wasn’t a rip-off of Nike or Adidas (like many new brands tend to be). But back in August, the little shoemaker that could was acquired by Steve Madden, and since then they’ve taken the gloves off, offering everything from triple-black recycled to shearling-lined to safari print sneakers.

Now, they’re moving on to non-shoe items. Today, Greats unveiled a limited-edition version of the dive-inspired Timex Navi watch. And just like their shoes, the timepiece is affordable and sleek, with choice details for those who take the time to appreciate them.”
