By popular demand we have now developed our K-01 range into a smaller mid-size 40mm watch.
We have maintained the high level of the precision-engineering of its larger relative, and fitted it with the reliable Seiko NH35 movement. This pilot watch range evokes a golden age of aviation adventure.
With its advanced white Swiss BGW9 lume and screw-in crown, we are continuing Geckota's timeless design and affordability.
Fitted to the watch is a lovely handmade Italian leather watch strap.

I've just received my Blue K1 B-type about 2 weeks ago.
I new Watchgecko for their straps production but never heard about their watches. As I was on the market seeking for an affordable Flieger style, I've decided to give it a go seduced by the high specs in front of the price.
And I 'm really, really, really happy with my purchase.
What do I Iove :
- fit and finish, sober and very well executed
- Seiko movement that I have on other watches (-1,5s per day on this K1 !!)
- the classic "no bullshit - no brand" dial highly legible
- the classy modern twist that comes with the blue sunrise. It plays beautifully with the light from nearly black to a funky electric blue.
- The blue lums : beautiful
- The high quality leather straps that comes with the watch.
- The very good and overall buying experience : from the friendly communication with the team, the high value perception of the quality packaging (multi layers cardboard boxes that protect a nice wooden box inside lined with faux leather)
- marketing goodies included : nice Geckota light pen and a Corkscrew bottle opener.
What might be improved :
- Do something with the second hand (lum, tiny painted point, reshape or whatever...) to highlight ever more the legibility in poor light conditions.
- use a real "oignon shape " crown.
As you can read it's not a lot in front of this genuine piece of awesomeness. I've paid mine under €200 shipped and it is nearly a steal.
I'm looking foreward to the future K1 generation because it defwon't
Purchased mine...and I love. A couple things that are merely my preferances. It's a little thick at 13mm, but not ungodly so. The lume fads quicker then some others. But the price vs all that you get in quality and materials, I don't think it can be beat. I think the 44 would have fit better on my wrist (42 seems to be my sweet spot), but it didn't come in Blue with the B dial. :( But all in all, VERY happy with the purchase. Not that I want them to charge more...but how does Watch Gecko make any money on this watch with everything that is on it?
Very speedy service and a lovely looking watch. I’ve never owned a watch of this thickness before, and I would have preferred it if it had been a little thinner (small wrists, you see). Other than that, a beautiful timepiece!
Perfect watch for this price.
Easy to order and very fast shipment.
