  • Classic German 1940s pilot watches were practical, unadorned and easy-to-read. Now, the new ‘Aviation’ dial on our K1 V27 watch head gives new levels of clarity and elegance. Only 40 pieces of each version are planned – and each is compatible with your choice of 22 mm strap…

    From the moment you strap-on your V27, its clear face and unplated silver-coloured stainless steel case impresses. As ever, inspiration came from iconic vintage Flieger B-Uhren – then we added our twist.

    The resulting watch combines elegant simplicity, superb build quality around a classic Miyota movement and the usual Geckota value for money.

    This was bought for my boyfriend who is a bit watch obsessed. We were both blown away by how lovely the watch is when you have it in your hands. It's big, heavy (in a good way), superbly finished, classy looking, and being a limited release, quite unique. The lume is awesome (as good as my Seiko) You're unlikely to ever bump into another bloke wearing the same watch! The little leather pouch it ships with is an excellent touch... Exceptional quality for the price!

    Great looking and fantastic for the price


    The watch is very legible (despite the light brown markers which I'm not particularly fond of) and lume lasts all night (yes I am one of those nerds that sleeps with the watch!), althought is not as strong as my ecozilla. The overall design is very nice with the shape that wraps the wrist (same as the K4 I also have), so that it wears smaller than the 44mm case/54mm LTL it is. One of the most accurate watches I ever owned, so far a very regular +2/day, this was unexpected as I thought the miyota 8000 series workhorse could not be so good. I love the sterile dial and the big crown, the beveled sapphire looks great. All in all a very nice pilot watch at a price (shipment included) that is unbeatable.

    Simple Quality


    Simple watch but with high quality and unique design.
    +20 sec per day.
    My only complain: Luminecense is a little bit too brown.
    Delivery was very fast.

    I am well pleased I have this and will not let go:)


    Watch is awesome and bang for the buck. I never expect an absolutely stunning quality and finish of this. Not to mention fast shipping. A keeper that will last a long time.

    I love it!


    The design of the dial is simple and clear, the way I like it. The lume is really strong in the dark. The mix of brush and polish finish for the case works well. I have fitted it with a nice brown handmade leather strap that makes a lovely combination. The case back design is a real plus as the fact it's a limited edition. I love the Geckota K1V27 and recommend it to anyone who likes this dial design.

    Top class watch!


    Great watch, absolutely love it! Superb, clear dial layout, reliable automatic movement from Miyota, top quality finishing and knockout lume that lasts all night. Buy one of these while you can.

The 2016 Geckota K1 V27

The 2016 Geckota K1 V27

The K1 pilot watch continues our exploration of timepieces inspired by iconic 1940s Flieger B-Uhr pilot watches. These include watches by Lange & Söhne, IWC, Stowa, Wempe and Laco.

Choose your new K1 and look forward to quality and performance that would have wowed the 1930s Reichsluftfahrtministerium – but for a very reasonable twenty-first century investment.
