Swiss Made Movement

With such a high level of build quality we knew we needed a movement to match, which is why we used the Swiss Made ETA 2824-2. This is a reliable, well made and extremely easy to service movement which has set the bar for entry level luxury watch movements across the industry.

The K-01 Dial

As with all pilots watches, legibility is important to the Geckota K-01. To ensure maximum readability we have used large dials with crisp printed contrasting indices topped off with Swiss SuperLuminova to ensure that accurate time can be read whatever the situation. To bring a contemporary feel to the watch we have also opted for Sunburst Blue and Grey options, ensuring that there is something for everyone.

It's all about attention to detail with the K-01

Featuring a solid 316L stainless steel case, bevelled scratch resistant sapphire crystal and ETA 2824-2 movement, this is a serious timepiece.

Your Guarantee

A screw in crown and case back ensure the watch is water resistant to 100 meters. The K-01 is supplied complete with a matching handmade leather strap. Choose your high-quality Geckota watch with confidence, it comes with our reassuring 24-month guarantee.

K-01 A-Type Limited Availability

As with all Geckota watches, this new K-01 will only be made in small batches of hundreds at a time, ensuring exclusivity and allowing us to control our high quality standard. As always, the K-01 comes with a reassuring 2-year guarantee.

The K-01 Hands

This latest K-01 also features new and improved handsets appropriate to each dial version, for the A-type pilots watch we have used strong & chamfered sword hands while for the B-type pilots watch we have used thinner sword hands. Staying true to the original B type pilots watch the hour hand on our Geckota K-01 stays within the inner hour track. We have even heat blued the hands on the appropriate dial versions as another quality statement.

Sharp Lines

This K-01 is the latest evolution in the range, which brings a whole new level of build quality. Strap this watch on and get lost in the contrasting details and sharp finishing. We pride ourselves in setting a high quality standard which you may have never seen accessible at this price point before.

Historical Design

This K-01 Pilots watch draws back on the history of the original watches used by pilots during WW2. Heavily inspired by the Baumuster 'A' & 'B' Fliegeruhren made to certain specifications by Stowa, IWC and others, with a few contemporary twists.

K-01 Handmade Strap

A watch of this quality needed an equally impressive strap to match, this is why it is paired with our Vintage Soft Top Grain leather strap. This beautiful vintage styled strap adds the finishing touch and will even look better with age.

The K-01 Case

We wanted the K-01 to be perfect for everyday wear so we opted for a 40mm case diameter, arguably the 'perfect size' this watch will be small enough to not impede on your daily life, but big enough to command some presence. For a subtle yet stylish look we have used a brushed finish on the majority of the case, which is nicely contrasted by the polished bevel.
