  • I love it


    Lovely strap, you can tell by the smell of the great leather, reminds me of horween leather. o love it on my basic casio watch

    Nice quality and customer treatment


    Really well made product, the craftsmanship is on point especially for its price. I'm pleasantly surprised.
    Also WatchGecko sent it in a very nice "care pack" which included a gift box and some spare accessories.
    Will 100% buy again from you.

    Great choice!


    The strap looks stunning on my JLC chrongraph. The simple Italian design proved to be 'less is more'. Great choice!

    Can't go wrong.


    Bought the reddish brown version in 18mm and love it since day 1. Looks quality/classy, super comfy and will build a patina that gives it even more character. Very much recommended.

    Not cheap but you get what you paid for.


    Great product . I installed a 22mm blue strap on my Tudor and it looks awesome . The leather is thick and high quality. I will be back for more for sure. Be patient because the shipping is slow if in the US.

    Great quality and colour perfect size for my 7" wrist.


    I've just bought a Seiko Alpinist and have been looking for a quality strap to replace the very poor one supplied with the watch. After looking at a load of site settled on watch gecko, good price and in stock! Fantastic quality, reddish brown an really lifts the watch and the packaging is fab. I will definately be getting a sports strap for my Speedmaster

    Fantastic Strap


    Bought this for my Tudor submariner. Not the cheapest strap but great quality I’ve now bought 3 as they are so great. Highly recommend

    Best vintage single-stitch strap for the money - bar none.


    The 5-star reviews here don't lie. These are top quality hand-made leather straps of best-looking top grain I have come across so far. They're not cheap but worth every dollar/pound. They're made of a single fold-over 2mm thick leather, with perfectly burnished (not cheaply sealed) sides completing that overall vintage look and feel. The thread used here is also thicker, vintage type, much thicker than the one used in the more affordable vintage Geckota Winchester simple-stitch strap.
    I just received chocolate simple-stitch strap and will buy in other colors. The tan one should look perfect with watches with blue/navy dials.

    Lovely vintage finish


    Bought this as soon as it was available in 21 mm and am happy to say I was not disappointed.

    The finish is great and very vintage looking.

    This is my second Handmade Geckota strap and I'm very happy with both.

    I would love to see these premium straps with integrated spring bars, to allow for faster changes.

    Excellent quality and good looking strap.


    I purchased the chocolate brown strap for a Victorinox Alliance. The thickness, taper and overall finish brings out the vintage look.

    great quality, transformed my vintage Omega


    Bought this for my '64 Seamaster which looked a bit bland on a black strap. More expensive than standard straps but worth it, as superb quality and perfect vintage look. Transformed my watch into more or a daily wearer while enhancing it's quality. I bought the reddish brown one, v happy with it

    A classy and great quality strap


    This is a very classy and good-looking strap (I bought the light-brown one that I paired up with a black-dial dress watch and it looks great!). The strap is really thick and feels very solid. I think I'll get myself another one in a different colour in the future.
    Highly recommended!

    Top product


    I love these straps - I bought a 20mm one a year ago for a vintage Omega sm300 that I wore to my wedding and was blown away by it, so I bought another in 22mm for my other watches. The leather takes on a really nice patina as it's worn, and the strap just suits vintage looking watches really well. Having said that, it even gives my SKX a vintage vibe. And it manages to do all that while retaining an air of quality - something that many other similar straps in this price range just don't. Top product.

    Too Short


    Great strap, I'd by all the colours but its just too short at 120mm. 130mm at least would be great.

    Prefer longer length of 130mm


    Just needs to be a little longer. If the 120mm piece was 130-135mm would be much better, the 120mm is just a little too short.

    A beautifully textured and finished strap


    I bought this to give my Nomos Club a more casual look and it works perfectly. I wanted quite a thick strap and the 4mm hits the mark and, while the taper from 20mm to 16mm at the buckle initially concerned me, having fitted it I found that it complements the thickness really well. All in all a beautifully textured and finished strap and I would thoroughly recommend it. Also, as a bonus the delivery time was very quick as well.

    Good looking, nicely done. But, the buckle tongue should be shorter(releasing it is very difficult).

    Slightly rustic and very classy.


    Beatiful strap made from lovely, slightly waxy leather. It's simple, slightly rustic and very classy. Looks amazing on my Sinn 104.
