Inspired by the retrofuturism of the 1950s, The Pioneer became one of Geckota's most recognisable watches to encapsulate space-age design. That’s why we originally called it the G-01 because for Geckota it was an absolute first. It may not have been Geckota’s first ever watch, yet its significance made this piece a landmark model, thanks to a stand-out design that set the tone for everything else that was to follow.

To celebrate the success of the Pioneer, we wanted to rerelease the watch with a little influence from our Chronotimer Aurora collection. Introducing the new and limited edition Pioneer Aurora, a classic Pioneer watch with a vibrant light blue dial that became popular with the Chronotimer Aurora Aqua Sunburst.

The new Pioneer Aurora blends traditional retro styling with a modern handset design, feeling refreshing and contemporary. For us, it was a truly pioneering moment – as we had never dared to create a watch that was anything like this before.

Not only is it a sophisticated dress watch, but its construction also allows it to be a dive watch (paired with a rubber strap). The overall robustness and construction allow it to blend in for any occasion or adventure. It was the closest thing we could have come to creating a horological chameleon for your wrist, except one with its own strong identity – enhanced by a stunning array of colours and unprecedented quality at this price point.


Like we said, its arrival was a truly pioneering moment for us. So it became obvious that this watch should simply be called the Pioneer Aurora, perfectly encapsulating the contemporary retrofuturism and vibrancy that is a hallmark of the collection. The Pioneer is the one watch that kick-started the Geckota space-age design ethos, which paved the way for many other models within our current range: fundamental to the company’s history and tradition.
