  • Outstanding Timepiece!


    This outstanding Racing Chrono was delievered in High-Speed! Some nice goodies accompanied this beautiful watch. The quality and design of this watch is superior. I own a lot of flight and Motorsport Chronos and this watch is a great addition to my collection. It transports the spirit of the well-known Vintage Racing Chronos without the limitations in design and function as well as safety (waterproof) these watches sometimes had. Great work, thanks WatchGecko! I'm looking forward to own the Panda-Version as well!

    Great stuff Geckota


    Took delivery today. Absolutely thrilled with a gorgeous watch. Nice feel and the quality of the watch itself is outstanding for the price paid. Very happy with it. Little touches and free gifts in the packaging give it an added reason to buy again from Watch Gecko. Super fast delivery to Australia (arrived within the week) I will buy again once i've paid off this little lot with some overtime!

    Excellent product. Delivery is fast. I am very satisfied.

    Stunning chronograph timepiece!


    What a beautiful timepiece! The grey/orange face was the standout piece for me - I love the dark face but with just the perfect amount of colour for contrast. The orange dials and markings are reminiscent of the wonderful vintage racing watches of the 1960's era. The sunburst orange looks simply amazing, especially on the reddish brown vintage strap. Aesthetically, this watch cannot be bettered for the money with a beautifully polished case and screw down crown. I'm so pleased I opted for this particular colour option but I have to say the black and white models are equally as stunning. I ordered my watch on Tuesday morning and it arrived 24 hours later - fantastic delivery. Well done Geckota for producing such a wonderful watch. And with the Seiko meca-quartz engine inside, I expect this watch will last for years!

Seiko VK64 Hybrid Chronograph

Powered by the hybrid "meca-quartz" Seiko VK64 movement; a combination of quartz and mechanical watch technology is possible.

Mechanical chronograph

Quartz timekeeping keeps the watch highly accurate, and the look and feel of an expensive mechanical chronograph is maintained, but without an expensive price tag.

Finishing Details

Attention to detail was very important to us when we designed this watch. We have used multiple finishes and the watch case shows this off to full effect.

The bezel has a mirror polished finish, then working down to the flat face of the case with its sun ray effect. This leads to the bevelled chamfer edge which has the same highly polished finish as the sides of the case.

The case back has some interesting detail too, with it's polished chamfer and outer step, and circular brush finish in the centre.

Racing History

Taking inspiration from late 1960s to early 1970s classic chronograph watches we are proud to have developed the Geckota Racing Chronograph.

Instant reset chronograph

Because there is a hybrid movement powering this beautiful watch, the 'Instant Reset' feature acts just like an expensive fully mechanic movement.  When the button is pressed, the seconds hand resets instantly to zero without any delay.
