  • Use of the "tropical weave" Perlon watch strap can be traced back to the British Armed Forces in the 1960's. It was popular thanks to the simple lightweight design and almost infinite adjustability.

    With this inspiration we have developed our own Geckota range, using braided textured nylon material and fitted with a solid polished stainless steel adjustable buckle.

  • Poor quality in every aspect!


    Bought two of these because of the color selection, what a disappointment they are, poor hardware and the straps themselves I would put a Timex on the them. One strap was already unraveling and there length even with adjustment was too short had to return them and however that's a whole new issue.

    Great looking strap, poor hardware


    Great looking strap and very comfortable, just a shame I’m worried about how flimsy the hardware is. The pin is so wobbly it looks as though it might come loose at any point, risking the strap falling off wrist.

    Serviceable strap but not the usual wow factor.


    So I bought this to replace the standard strap on my Seiko SNK809.
    I have to agree with some of the comments above. The strap is sturdy enough I'd say and is a one piece with similar threading to a NATO (but no safety double strap so be warned if you're putting the strap on an expensive piece).
    The buckle is very thin & light and quite difficult to pass the strap through. And also the keepers are difficult to pass the strap tail through. Finishing on strap tail a bit rough on mine. It is comfortable though.
    I have several B2 Nylon straps from watch gecko & these feel way more substantial and are £6 cheaper.
    That being said it gives the watch a different and unique look that you don't see very often.
    The service on order processing and delivery were the usual high standard.

    Of course I will be back for more.

    Great look. Excellent quality.


    The double braid does make the strap feel thicker than th single braid. It also makes the braided look stand out more. Excellent quality. I really like the steel ladder buckle.

    5 stelle!


    No better choice for my Omega x33 1st gen. FANTASTIC!

    Choose the blue one; it's stunning with a blue-dial K1


    Originally bought an orange 'single thickness' Perlon strap to go with other-half's K1 with blue dial. It looks stunning, but quite thin. So, splashed out on the blue double Tropic perlon and you really can notice the extra thickness and an enhanced quality feel. The blue sets off the sunray dial on the K1 perfectly. The two together make a killer combination. Makes up for, perhaps, a slightly lightweight feel to the hardware. That said, I have sufficient confidence in the quality and specifications from WatchGecko that, though the hardware may feel a little 'light', I'm sure it is up for the task in hand. I'd agree with 4* for perceived quality of the hardware but definitely 5* for actual durability and the feel and aesthetics of the strap.

    Lovely looking perlon


    Mixed feelings about this one, on the one hand its a lovely looking strap, the double weave looks very cool ...but as mentioned on other perlon reviews in the site the hardware is just lacking that quality feel you usually get with the WatchGecko products..a little improvement on the hardware and this would be a 5 star product...that said I wouold still recommend it as it really doeslook great on both watches I've tried it on
