This watch is already my third Geckota. Since 1980 I collect special pilot's watches (SInn, Fortis, Tutima). The price performance ratio is unbeatable. This watch is my new favorite. I was approached by other watch friends. This watch even pleases my wife. The workmanship of this watch is unique. You are a great team. Keep it up. Greetings. Andreas
The quality of the watch is, in a word, superb. It has a beautifully finished polished and brushed case with a case depth and size reflective of a bygone era of pilot watches. The sapphire crystal is perfectly positioned just above the level of the bezel and is of excellent quality. I love the uncluttered matte black dial and the position and size of the numerals is perfect and proportionate to the size of the dial. There is a complete absence of maker’s name and all the technical information you need (e.g. automatic movement) is confined to the back of the case, which is where it should be on a tool watch such as this. This wristwatch is reminiscent of the original pilot watches in look and feel.
WatchGecko' choice of movement is also excellent, an ever reliable Seiko which has the added benefit of manual winding (when it has been off the wrist for a while) in addition to the automatic winding function. The ability to precisely set the time by stopping the seconds hand is also an added benefit of this movement.
All-in-all it's an excellently executed design and finish. It wears well on the wrist and has been perfectly matched to a quality handmade vintage-looking leather strap.
Well done to the team involved in its design and production. This is my first WatchGecko wristwatch purchase…..it won't be my last!!.
This watch is an excellent rendition of the classic German aviator watch. The finish and brilliant simplicity of this design at this price range are without equal. Watch Gecko's customer service is outstanding. Their lightning fast replies to my questions impressed me and it got to me from 7800 miles away in less than 70 hours. Wow!
Honestly the watch looks and feels alot more expensive than it is. The finish is flawless and I'm sure the Seiko movement is very reliable as well. I replaced the original leather strap with the mesh version, it looks now even better. All in all a great value for money and delivery was fast too. 5/5!
Nice clean dial design and the watch is also very solid which I like I have had many comments about the watch and enjoy wearing it.
