Over the past few years, the way we take and view images of watches has changed. There is now a large community on social media dedicated to images of watches in the environments they were made for. We love receiving images from our customers with #watchgecko so decided to go out and give it a go ourselves.
One evening, a couple of us went to a local airfield to see if we could get any images of Geckota pilot watches in their natural habitat. The watches looked right at home even if the aircraft’s had seen better days! After some research we found out that the planes were an old Avro Shackleton and a Percival Prince.
This photo shoot was only a short one to see how the watches came out on the camera and to see whether there was anything worth shooting. Overtime the images will increase in quality and context until we’ve got a great collection of shots! To get different views and angles on the watches, we used both a DSLR and an iPhone.
