  • The iconic wartime pilot watches from Stowa, Laco and others were practical and easily read in poor light. The combination of the new matt black ‘Aviation’ dial and black IP stainless steel case on our K1 V28 is something again. Only 40 are planned, each compatible with your choice of 22 mm strap…

    From first sight of the V28, we’re sure the sophisticated all-black appearance will appeal if ‘brighter’, unplated stainless steel cases aren’t to your taste.

    In this watch, vintage style meets contemporary surface finishing and an ‘understand at a glance’ dial that will appeal to flyers and non-flyers. Add superb build quality, a classic Miyota movement and Geckota value and you have another winning timepiece.

  • Another beauty...


    Beautifully made, limited production run and powered by a super robust and reliable Miyota movement, what's not to love about the K1? But especially so when its the V28 in Black! Bought one of these to compliment some darker straps, my Third Geckota now and love it!

    Love the watch, shipping was very fast to the US


    This watch is great! Such a nice presence on the wrist. Strap changes are easy and painless. Ordered on a Wednesday evening and checked the three day shipping. I was blown away when it arrived on Friday all the way from the UK, I'm in the US. I have many products shipped to me after paying extra that took much longer and those were US companies! Buy with confidence.

    Excellent watch


    This is a fantastic watch. I have had mine for about a week and it just grows on you. The accuracy of the movement is surprisingly good. Far better than what would be expected. The dial is excellent in its simplicity, the lume is impressive. This is a large watch but it doesn't look oversized on your wrist. In short, an excellent watch.

    excellent value, strong personality and free configurability

The 2016 Geckota K1 V28

The 2016 Geckota K1 V28

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.
