Timex launched about a week ago the new Timex Giorgio Galli S138, which now comes with a smaller case size than the previous Galli S1 and in the form of three new colour variants on the dial.
Many of those who previously “rejected” the Timex Galli for presenting itself as a dress watch with a generous 41mm case now have no reason to point a finger as the brand seems to have heard its audience offering it now and in addition to the previous two variants with silver and blue dial, three new variants in a 38mm case.
Aesthetically, the watch has not undergone any change, keeping the injected metal molded case in stainless steel, with hollow grooves throughout its profile in the style of AP Code 11.59, double curved sapphire crystal and open through case back where it stands out the custom rotor.
The dial that features a sunburst pattern dial is offered as mentioned in three different colours, in grey, blue and green, keeping the same disposition of applied sticks indexes, central hour and minute hands filled with Super-LumiNova and a purple applied synthetic sapphire stone at six o’clock that serves as Giorgio Galli’s signature.
Inside, everything is also the same, keeping the Miyota 9039 automatic movement, which as already mentioned comes with a hacking second, hand-winding and offers up to 42 hours of power reserve.
Like the 41mm variants, it is offered with a rubber strap, customized at case style with hollow profile and a rivet keeper, but now matching the dial colour.
For €450 it is without a doubt an elegant and good looking watch, with its new diameter of 38mm it is better suited in the dress watch category and therefore perhaps a burgundy dial instead of the green one would fit better.
