We’ve covered a number of Giorgio Galli-designed Timex models, and particularly the semi-eponymously named GGS1 series. Well, that line is coming to an end, so Mr. Galli whipped up a new limited-edition version to send the series out with. Meet the final Timex GGS1 38mm models.

Now, you’ll recall a little under a year ago they released a 38mm GGS1 that rather appealed to us (you can see that here). This time around, they’ve gone with something that feels a bit more ready for a late night party. You can opt for a dark-finish case (with matched indices on the dial) that goes for a stealthy look, or you can go with gold tone for the case, indices, and hands, for a brighter, more luxurious look.

For this release, things are limited to 500 pieces of each version, and pricing runs from $475 – $500. Perhaps a bit more than we’re used to seeing for a Timex, but it is closing out the series with a limited edition. Check it all out over at timex.com
