    Geckota presents the new Challenger solid stainless steel watch strap.

    Our metal watch straps are getting better and better and the new "Challenger" is no exception; available in two buckle versions so that you can choose the one that best suits you.

    This is a heavy, thick and chunky watch strap and we have used high quality 316 marine grade stainless steel for a more attractive look and greater resistance to corrosion. Professionally made with attention to detail that won't disappoint you. The buckle is stamped 'Geckota' on the underside for your reassurance of quality.

    It's fitted with solid straight ends but you can purchase curved ends here if required.

    Superb Quality, Out-standing Customer Service. The 22mm Challenger strap with curved ends fits the Samsung Gear s3 perfectly. Makes a real difference to look of the S3. Polished finish is the way to go.

    Well made, although the clasp could be better finished.


    This bracelet offers excellent value, as the links are solid and well finished, with good quality brushing. The links are also quite thick and the bracelet is quite heavy, which I actually prefer, but may not be to everyones liking. I bought the additional folded endlinks as they are compatible with my Sinn 556i and the bracelet matches the watch extremely well and looks really good paired with it. The bracelet doesn't taper, which some may prefer, but I would have liked it to taper from 20mm at the lugs to 18mm at the clasp, to remove some of the visual weight.

    At this price, there isn't much to complain about, but there are two things which could be improved and they both involve the clasp. The push button part of the clasp feels a bit cheap and wobbly and doesn't close with a defined 'click' like more expensive bracelets. Also, the clasp pieces which rest against your skin had edges and corners which were were pointy and sharp and irritated the underside of my wrist. I resolved this by lightly wet sanding them down with a 220 grit sanding sponge.

    Lovely bracelet that works perfectly with the Geckota diver's ratchet extension buckle


    No wonder this is getting so many good reviews. I treated myself to a Challenger with 22mm lug widths to go on an Orient Maco 2 and I'm delighted. it's typical Geckota 'solid and chunky' with a really nice smooth finish. The bracelet looks as if it cost way more than the very reasonable WG price. I love it!

    And here's a tip: I fancied a diving extension so I can wear the bracelet over outer clothing. At the moment, you can buy the Geckota stainless steel divers ratchet buckle on special for silly money. It fits the challenger beautifully, so if you are investing in a 'C' (and I recommend that you do), do yourself a favour and buy the divers ratchet at the same time. I got the polished steel version and it looks great with the brushed SS of the bracelet.

    Great service,very good value


    I received this watch strap today.It was fitted with ease by a local jeweller, who commented on the excellent quality and great value.I would encourage the purchase of the curved end if suitable for your watch ,it finishes the strap well

    Very very nice bracelet


    Very good quality en good value, look much better than photos. This bracelet make my seiko watch look stunning. Very comfortable I recommend this .very very nice

    Challenger is a winner


    Got this in the mail today. I really like it. It came in a nice box with a microfiber cloth and 3 spring bars that fit snugly in the bracelet. I bought one for my Seiko SNE109 and it looks and feel great. I had been wearing a geckota rubber strap but wanted to try a bracelet. I didn't want to spend $100 from some other place, but I did want a nice bracelet to match the quality of the watch. The Challenger bracelet fit the bill. It was easy to adjust with a pin pusher and now fits perfectly. It has a good weight to it and it is more comfortable than some cheaper models I found on online.



    As they call it - Super. Great feel, finish (mine is polished) and also adjustablity. For this money? Just Wow!

    Super quality watch strap.


    I've just bought two of these superb straps, both in the brushed finish. The 22mm for my Geckota ZD1 and the 20mm for my Citizen Promaster. They both look and feel brilliant and are really comfortable despite being quite weighty. They are amazing value at the moment being prototypes and will still be a great buy at full price. I'm just waiting for the 24mm straight ends to come into stock then I can mix and match and have one on all of my divers watches.

The Geckota Super Range

Why do we call them Super?

We have sold metal straps for many years. With our knowledge and customer feedback we sat down to develop what we believe to be a superior metal watch strap range, at a reasonable price.

The range is all made from 316 marine grade stainless steel, and from solid pieces of metal. Available in either a fold over with double locking divers buckle, or the elegant hidden butterfly buckle. We have also specified a high level quality finish in either satin or mirror polish that won't disappoint. Adjustability is also important so we have made sure that there are a good number of removable links, and also additional curved end pieces are available to purchase for the straps.

The straps are stamped with our Geckota logo, for reassurance of quality.

Reliable Brand

Our high quality watch straps are professionally made and constructed.

They are finished to a very high standard, so that excellent quality is assured.

Discreet Branding

The solid stainless steel fold-over with safety push-button release clasp is subtly stamped with the GECKOTA® logo. The outside part of the clasp is unbranded, ensuring that it will not look out of place on any brand of watch.
