  • Your beautiful Geckota Classic Vintage Racing strap has been skilfully crafted to evoke memories of a golden age of 1960s and 1970s motor sport.

    Will you wear yours with a high-fashion designer watch, a classic luxury brand or your new Geckota racing watch? Whatever your preference, the beautiful vintage-style waxed leather looks amazing and gains more character with every wear. And then there's the timeless aroma of leather...

    For stunning looks and a sense of 1970s Monte Carlo or Le Mans, we've painstakingly cut and crafted your strap from carefully selected vintage hide. Then we hand stitched it with a thick, durable beige wax thread to perfectly complement the luxurious leather. Finally, we skilfully shaped the edge of your watch strap and sealed it with a clear transparent finish for durability.

    For style and added comfort, the punched pattern of perforations echoes the design language of the leather driver's gloves that were worn all those years ago. Similarly, larger perforations allude to racing car components that were perforated to be lighter and gain critical fractions of a second while lapping Spa or the Targa Florio course in Sicily.

    The result is an impressive statement on your wrist, a sure conversation starter and a way to show your affinity for motor sport in conjunction with a favourite watch head.

    The Geckota Classic Vintage Racing strap is available in a selection of deep, warm colours and popular 20 mm and 22 mm lug-widths to suit a wide range of vintage and contemporary watches.

    The Buckle is made from solid, polished stainless steel. It's designed so the leather strap fits neatly into a recess for a comfortable wear. For your added reassurance, the buckle tongue is also manufactured from solid, strong, secure stainless steel.

    Sinn 104


    Great Strap, my Sinn 104 looks really great in Reddish Brown



    Solid, thick and great quality strap! Went for the dark brown which turned out to be a stunner on mu Zenith Deluca reverse panda, looking to order more ;)

    Reddish brown strap


    Super fast delivery and great quality strap.

    Gorgeous Strap


    The reddish brown strap looks amazing. A very high quality strap with a great design. This is one of my favourites. I'm using it on a Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical and it makes the watch look a few steps above its level.

    Great Watch Strap


    Good looking strap...plenty thick. I bought the cheaper version sold here as a gift for somebody else but this one definitely has a nicer look and feel to it. So the extra money was worth it IMO. I got a good fit out of this one and the light brown looks great with a Seiko SKX009. Like the other reviewers, I am already thinking about purchasing another in reddish or dark brown.

    Want more!


    Love this strap. Only wish they made a dark red and a dark blue version. The thickness, and dimensions are perfection.



    I already have black version of this strap, but i just got my hands on light brown version and can't stop looking at it. It's that good. Pictures just don't do it justice. Such an awesome strap!



    It came well packaged and looked amazing as soon i open the box. This is a beautiful well made leather watch band, noting but quality. I though it would be stiff but it is not is looks solid but is soft and very comfortable and smells amazing. This band exceeded my expectation and the price is unbeatable.



    First time I ordered from you and I'am verry pleased by the products. Good quality strap. I'll be buying again from you

    My second strap from WatchGecko and very impressed!


    Very nice strap, very good quality, it transformed my Seiko to a different level. Love it. My only criticism is the side of the strap is covered with acrylic like material which makesthe strap look factory made, too perfect if you know what I mean. I would prefer the sides of the leather to look like leather. Also love the box and cleaning clothes it came with, very nice touch.

    Fantastic Products!


    Awesome strap, excellent quality leather that feels great on the wrist, really changes the whole look of my watch, and definitely for the better! The spring bar tool I purchased with it made quick and easy work of swapping it out. Love it!!!

    Stylish and comfortable.


    Just fitted to a Citizen Grand Touring. Different watch now! fantastic looking and fitting strap. Beware buckle is polished so make sure your watch has some polish. I have 8" wrist size and I'm on 2nd hole from last and keeper still fits nicely, just!

    Amazing watch straps


    Just bought the whole colour set to mix and match with my Vo 1 and 3. These bands are amazing to wear, They feel comfortable and smell amazing. Great product Watchgecko, Im happy to pay for quality like this!!

    Pure quality


    Great watch strap, pure quality and very well made, not your cheap rubbish you find elsewhere, only company I will ever buy straps from.

    Excellent product and delivery


    Excellent quality - just about to send for another. Swift delivery - delighted with the product and the service.

    First but not last Watch Gecko strap!


    Love the light tan.
    Smells fantastic. Is of very high quality and goes very well with my Blue Squale 1521.
    Think I'll have to get more!

    First but not last Watch Gecko strap!


    I went for the light tan colour to compliment different watches and it went straight onto my Squale 1521 in Blue.
    Absolute perfect together.
    The strap is so soft, smells fantastic and is of a very high quality.
    I think I'll have to get more!

    Fantastic leather!


    I have been wearing this watch strap for a few days now, and I must say it's really comfortable. You can really tell it's quality leather and it's going to last a long time. I went for the dark brown but am think I will get a reddish brown as well!
