By popular demand we have now developed our K1 range into a smaller mid-size 40mm watch. It is available as a watch head only that's ready for your preferred 20 mm strap.
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.

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!
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!
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.
