  • Newbie Collector - Very Impressed


    My first purchase from WatchGecko, and very impressed. My red dial G-01 is beautiful, and the most comfortable watch I've worn on the supplied Ostrich Leg leather strap! BUT I swapped it out for the PROTOTYPE: GECKOTA PREMIUM MILANESE DIVER I purchased at the same time and wow...it looks great! The more I look at the watch, the more the 50's vibe in the design shines through but with the modern accents.
    I also purchased other straps at the same time under the 'Black Friday' deal - all are excellent quality with great value for money...as is the watch.
    I'm so impressed I've already placed another order!!!

    Gorgeous watch.


    What a beautiful watch this is. How the color of the dial changes into the light. Very nice.
    Thanks for the free gifts!

    A superb watch


    Great design and build quality! A fantastic watch for the money! Gains around five seconds a day, which is pretty impressive for an automatic. An unbelievably short delivery time too! What more can one want!

    Beautiful watch


    I saw this watch when i was ordering new straps. Immediately knew that this will be on my wrist soon.
    All colors were great which caused a hard time to choose mine. I ended up choosing the teal color. Fun fact : teal color code is 008080 and my watch number is 008!
    Watch arrived quickly, and it is gorgeous! Like how the color fades to black/gray certain angle. Seiko NH35 hacking function is great. +13sec/day what i measured.
    I am a bit of a lume junkie and G1 lume is excellent!
    I love 50s styles, music etc and this watch figs me perfectly.
    Inly thing i miss is the date, but it is not nessessary.
    Thank you!

    Great watches at a competitive price


    Beautiful classy classic design. It sat on my desk unworn for two weeks, I was admiring the design and the color of the face. Consistent high quality throughout, I was not initially sold on the strap provided with the watch, but it is a perfect match for my teal. So satisfied that I will order another watch or two from the company. Great product and a competitive price, my watch-loving friends were blown away by the design and that I took such a risk, but they now understand that other options exist outside of the more expensive brands that are becoming marketing machines rather than watch makers!

    Woo - Hoo!


    Now that this watch has been in use for a month I can tell that it keeps time really well - it gains about 10sec in 24 hours. I put on the Solid 3 Link D Profile by Geckota
    steel bracelet and now it looks even better than with the leather strap.
    Definitely a watch worth getting, go for it!

    Buy while stocks last!!!


    Superb! Bought the teal blue model . Amazingly brilliant face. Changes in the light. Shape and style and strap and sapphire and 300mts waterproof at £299? A watch of a value way beyond its price. Buy!

    Great watch great service and great price.


    Just took delivery of the G1 rouge my second watch from WatchGecko. Came with shark grey suede strap and looks amazing very comfortable and classy. Even on my smaller wrist the watch sits very well. Another nice touch was the free pen and handy bottle opener. Well done people I would certainly recommend this watch.



    Je viens de recevoir la montre. Elle est magnifique. Les finitions sont superbes. Le design est épuré et élégant... j'adore !



    Great, great watch, really pops and wears well. An awful lot of watch for the money. Really happy

    Lovely watch beautifully made


    Beautiful watch, feels very well made and looks so classy. Just received it for my birthday, the guys at Geckota were kind enough to pick out the actual number watch corresponding to my age which was amazing! I’m going to enjoy wearing this a lot.

    Great watch, excellent service


    Great looking watch. Even more impressed by the excellent service - dispatched about an hour after I ordered and delivered the next day.

    Geckota G-01 V02 0157


    Hi, I would like to thank you for such a swift delivery of my watch, It is absolutely gorgeous, I love almost everything about it from the way the dial seems to change colour in sunlight to the hands.
    The only thing I do not like is the fact that the strap came in black and not the brown that is in all the pictures, in my humble opinion it simply does not fit well with the green dial. 5 stars for the watch maybe 3 stars for the strap combination.
    A lovely watch. Thank you...

    A Panerai in party clothes


    Take a Panerai, shrink it a bit to a reasonable size, give the case some interesting details and a high polish and dress the dial up in party clothes. Oh, and keep the good lume, 300m WR and sapphire crystal. Sell it for a reasonable price and you have all the ingredients for a Geckota G-01.



    Excellent montre je suis content de mon achat,merci watchgecko pour votre professionnalisme

    This watch rocks, seriously


    This watch was delivered in a beautiful wooden box that raised my expectations some what more. The box is lined with red leather which suits this watch spot on. The watch is something U have to see in hand - those pictures only give a small hint of what to expect.

    The dial is really easy to read and it almost seems radiating the red colour, the case is beautifully polished and the drilled lugs make changing the strap really easy. Oh yes, the strap - beautiful brown ostrich.

    This watch is gorgeous: I love the clean dial with nothing else but the brand name, not even a date. The dial reminds me of the old radar screens, somehow it is both retro and ultra modern at the same time. The lume - there is lots of it and it compliments the dial perfecty. The combo of lume and the brushed and living colour of the dial really looks like it were a beast alive. Strikingly beautiful.

    The shape of the case is almost alive, this watch looks magnificient from all the angles. I espesially love the way the lense rises from the case, this is a sculpture, not just a watch. In the world of watches this guy is the alpha male - it knows it rules the pack and does not have to show it off.

    This watch is a real bargain, grab one while U still can. I am over the moon with this one :-)

Individual style

The new G-01 shows a different side to the Geckota range with a more unique, individual design taking inspiration from 'space age' type buildings and architecture such as the TWA Flight Center and John Lautner's Chemosphere.

These buildings, much like the G-01 both share a level of individuality & unique flair and yet still keep their own level of distinctiveness. Whether it's a stunning Ostrich leg watch strap, a practical rubber strap or an understated metal bracelet, the G-01 always maintains a level of individual charm.

The G-01 Dial

The dial on the G-01 Diver combines some of the most valued features and specifications which you come to expect from the Geckota line. The vertically brushed dial comes in a range of three unique colours which not only stand out but also change colour depending on the light and the angle you're enjoying the watch from.

On the topic of uniqueness, the applied indices are filled with Super-LumiNova and surrounded with gold details, complimenting the overall space age like design of the watch. The applied hour markers on the G-01 sit on a thin white line which adds another nod to the space age inspiration. This line continues on the G-01, crossing the dial down the centre vertically and horizontally, bringing the watch together effortlessly.

The G-01 Hands

When looking at the G-01, there two features which immediate jump out at you. Not only does the dial give the watch that special look, the hands used have a unique retro feel, a new direction for the Geckota range. The hands take the best of popular hand sets such as Mercedes and cathedral hands and combine them with space-age design.

The hands are also filled with Super-LumiNova resulting in a bright blue glow with only short exposure to light. To match the hour markers, the hands have gold details complimented with the fully gold coloured seconds hand.

The G-01 Case

Coming in at 42mm, the 300m water resistant G-01 has a lug to lug of 45mm and a thickness of 12mm making for a very useable size for modern-day diving watches. The G-01 comes with useful features we understand our customer enjoy such as drilled lugs and a screw down crown.

The same crown also has two-tone colouring matching in dial as well as a 'G' signed design and additional gold design around the threading.

Gold G-01 Details

On the topic of gold details, the G-01 is finished with a handful of gold coloured design aspects which really add another dimension to this watch. The combination of the gold-edged hands, hour markers, seconds hand, signed crown and crown tube threading all give the effect of a two-tone watch, without it being as obvious and blatant as genuine two-tone designed timepieces.

Calibre 35 Movement

Our Calibre 35 is the reliable Japanese Seiko NH35 movement. This calibre has an automatic winding system but it can also be hand wound. It has a total of 24 jewels and is made in Japan.

A well respected reliable, accurate and durable movement

For maximum efficiency the NH35 features bi-directional winding and when fully wound it has a power reserve of 41 hours. This movement also has a hacking feature where the seconds hand stops when the time is being set.
