  • A Superb watch


    This is a superb watch.

    If you are looking for something a little bit different then this is well worth a look.

    The racicing/sporty look is spot on . The grey dials really give it a vintage feel .
    It oozes quality

    The case is well made and flawless , the leather strap is second to none and is beautifully crafted.

    When I first spotted this watch I guessed the price to be £1000 + so was astonished to find it was £300 and even more delighted to get £50 off.

    I am very pleased with my purchase and would recommend this timepiece to anyone.

    Worth waiting for


    I've just received my Racing Chronograph and I'm so glad I opted for the white dial version at the last minute. They're all nice, and I'd initially thought I'd go with the black one. But at the last minute, after seeing one of Geckota's pictures of the chrono on a mesh strap, I changed my mind and pulled the trigger. The white dial with orange chronograph hand looks great with a classic leather strap or a stainless steel bracelet. And under the right conditions it picks up blue beautifully. I'm well pleased with my decision and thoroughly enjoying wearing this tribute to the 1960s and 1970s racing watches on my wrist. Love it!

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 'Flyback' feature acts just like an expensive fully mechanic movement.  When the button is pressed, the seconds hand resets instantly to zero without any delay.
