  • Too thick/big but stunning


    Please can we get a less thick version? Love the watch except its a bit large. 40mm would be a perfect diameter as well. Aside from that small critique its beautiful.

    Impressive on all the plans


    Really a very nice watch! Faster as sending it is not possible :)
    Thank you very much, I will order again at your place without any doubt

    I am impressed by this


    Wonderful watch, perfectly made - high quality. Delivery took just one day from UK ro Germany. ONE DAY... Incredible!

    Amazing watch for the asking price


    Even before I opened the box the packaging oozed quality and was on a par with some of the more expensive watches I have in my collection. The watch itself is beautiful and very well finished. I'm glad I went for the grey dials version as it gives it a good look and goes well with the retro 70's styling. I'll be keeping an eye on this company from now on to see what other watches they produce in the coming months. I have a feeling I'll be spending more money here in the future .

    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!

    WOW... just.. wow.


    just recieved this watch, and i must say this is one of the most well made beautiful watches i have ever seen. QUALITY for the money! i think this leads me to buying more from Geckota.

    Photos have nothing to do with real product quality


    This watch looks great on photos, but has a cheap feel. Real price should be around 50$

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


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

    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!

    Awesome Watch, Awesome Company


    Pulled the trigger on this bad boy late last week. It arrived in Australia within days. Great service from WatchGecko. The watch itself is soooo cool and I can't stop looking at it. The quality looks to be superior to some more expensive brands. I like supporting Micro brands if they produce quality watches like this and provide great service. The catalog, the watch sleeve, cleaning cloth and torch all make for a great internet shopping experience. I'm now ordering the bands in other colours to mix and match. Great work WatchGecko. The only problem is now I want to buy the other two models.!!!!!

    I'm impressed with this watch.


    I'm impressed with this watch it ticks all the boxes for me, great qulity,stylish and very comfortable on the wrist,fast shipping and well packed. I will purchase from watchgecko again in the future. you will not be disappointed with this watch.

    Most pleased with my Geckota Racing Chrono


    Well the watch landed today (Saturday) after i only ordered it late on Thursday evening; what fantastic service. Was well packed in a lovely wooden box and arrived with some extra goodies; pleasant surprise and appreciated.
    I have an extensive collection of watches, featuring various TAG's, Oris, ,Longines and CW's and I reckon this watches quality is on par with any of these! Its feels suitably solid and first impressions are good!. The strap is comfortable and appears to be made of quality durable leather. I am keen on motor racing influenced watches so if more are add to the range i will definitely purchase again from Watchgecko. Very pleased that i decided to push the button!

    Very impressed


    Tilasin kellon keskiviikkoiltana ja se saapui minulle Suomeen perjantai-iltana, todella nopea toimitus. Pakko sanoa, että kuvat eivät anna oikeutta kellolle, se näyttää luonnossa vielä paremmalta. Myöskään laadusta en löytänyt mitään sanomista ensituntuman perusteella. Vahva suositus!

    Lovely Watch


    As soon as I saw this watch online i knew I had to have one, i'm glad i bought the V04 it looks fabulous with silver face and blue sub dials. I love the design and engineering.
    I'm disappointed it comes with a black strap, after 99% of the footage online is on a brown strap. In my opinion it looks better on brown but I am told this is not an option. A shame.
    Full marks for service and presentation too, it arrived very quickly and in a lovely wooden box.

    Nice looking watch


    Saw this watch & it reminded me of my first decent watch, a Sandoz chronograph in the 1970s. So I purchased the watch.
    It is a good looking well made watch, however I have two criticism's.
    The Crown stem appears to be quite fragile. And would benefit from a support bush.
    And the description of the watch state's "SuperLuminova BGW9 hands and dial" as far as I can see the luminova is only applied to the hour & minute hands (nothing on the face ). And the word super infers better than normal, and better word would be adequate.
    Having said all that,it is a nice looking well made watch.

    It's my "go to" watch


    I have a large collection of watches and like to mix them around a bit but this model has now become my "go to" watch for the past few months. I changed the strap for the ostrich leather one that WG also sells and it's out of this world in terms of look and feel. The watch is solidly made and a real good value option. Yes, I also wish it was mechanical, but at this price, the quartz is fine.

    Excellent value for this price


    Just received version 6 of this watch model. Excelent value reported to price. Fast delivery, excellent package. Happy with this inspired gift for my birthday!
