  • 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.

  • Great aesthetics and quality for a knockdown price


    Love it to bits. Strap is quality (makes all the difference) and the fit and finish is great for the price. Bought the K-01-L VERSION 5 as well and same comments apply

    All good, very much so!


    I was most concerned with the 40mm size of this watch prior to order, as I usually buy in the 42-44mm range. Turns out, pleasantly, this watch covers the smaller width by a combination of bright, refined appearance and classy, subtle style.
    The result is a timepiece more than worthy of the price, a pleasure to wear, a pleasure to observe.
    The band is of quality leather, excellent length for a larger wrist, the color plays perfectly in the overall presentation.
    I especially like the second hand, well conceived, eye catching to just the right degree. The sweep is confirming of the fine movement enclosed within, creating an effect, basically, of yes, I am glad I acquired this watch!

    Almost perfect


    I've had this piece for a few weeks now, and I've only grown to like it more and more every time I put it on. The beautiful leather strap feels like a familiar leather jacket, and it seems to go well with whatever I'm wearing. And I've never been a fan of huge watches, so 40mm feels just perfect to me.

    I do have a few gripes though. It's a bit thick, the crown looks slightly out of place, and the hands don't quite fit with the style (this watch would be killer with cathedral hands!).

    Despite those few, almost insignificant, things, this watch is my go-to piece nearly every day. And at the price, it's tough to beat!

    Impressive wrist presence for 40mm yet not OTT


    Got mine yesterday, many thanks. Definitely looks better in real life than on the pictures. Very readable dial, excellent contrast, the bold art deco font really stands out, and works well with a wide variety of striped NATOs, both sober of colourful, the 20mm lug width being ideal here.
    The blue lume is pretty impressive and easily lasts through the night if given a blast with a LED torch. Not too much reflection from the sapphire glass.
    Good sense of detail overall, especially on the clever use of brushed and polished parts on the case. I especially like the small polished groove between the side and top. quite a lot of wrist presence for a 40mm case, similar to, say, an Orient Ray. Though I must point out is does stand pretty tall on the wrist, and the rather long curved horns tend to dig slightly in one's wrist if one wears it on a thin strap such as a perlon.
    The screw-down crown is really easy to operate, the pop is positive and it screws easily back in. Accuracy so far points at +6 or +8 seconds-ish, of which I'm very happy. All in all very good value for money, and definitely recommended for people like me with large-ish wrists (8 in) for whom large watches feel OTT.

    Stunning piece


    Brilliant watch with beautiful detail. The size of this watch is perfect for me (as a female) and has a real neat, simplistic design making it look great on pretty much any strap! Extremely happy with this product!

    I am really pleased with this watch


    I love the indices that remind me of Zenith watches. The size of the case is smaller that I am used to but it gives a nice vintage and dressy feel. The screw-in crown and the caseback design are two nice features that I appreciate. I am wearing this piece with the gunmetal grey NATO strap which gives a nice vintage combo. I recommend this watch which is really good value!
