  • We have taken on board customer feedback, and we are now proud to introduce the MKII Winstone watch strap. Each piece of the watch strap is now made from a single piece of high quality genuine leather that is folded back on itself, so the top leather is now used as the lining. We thank you for your comments as we aim to always improve our products.

    The Geckota Winstone has been beautifully hand-crafted for us by Fluco in Germany, the straps are made from genuine leather, having a wonderful vintage look and feel.

    The straps are hand stitched with a contrasting colour waxed thread and you can be assured only premium genuine leathers are used and stamped with Geckota® approval.

    A silver tone solid stainless steel pin buckle with a polished finish is fitted. Please note that the strap come in two sizes, 20mm and 22mm, each size has it's own buckle style, please see images showing the options.

    Due to the natural material and tanning process, please be aware that colours may be slightly different from the pictures shown.

    Nasty glueing, tapered too narrow,flimsy buckle.

    Really nice leather


    Great strap so far.



    The strap is poorly made, the glue came undone after one day of wear. Disappointed.

    Great product


    I have the blue one and it's wonderful. Really high quality leather and it's very neatly made, it seems durable so far, I'm happy! The strap is fitted to my Sinn pilot.

    not pleased


    Strap was cut in a banana shape and wouldn't fit through the buckle properly, also stitching all over the place. Very poor craftsmanship. If an item is 'handmade' i expect minor defects but this was just poorly put together with no QC. Since also discovering these are actually Fluco straps I am shocked at Watchgecko trying to pull these off at double the price.

    Poor quality


    Just a couple of days after receiving this strap, the stitching and the glue holding the strap to the spring bar started coming undone. I hope this is an unfortunate manufacturing defect and they improve the QC, because the strap on its own looks quite beautiful.

    Very Nice Looking Strap..


    However, I have a negative or two.. They seem to have their edges sealed with some kind of thin dark plastic. it comes off in strips right from the first use.. It's not really noticeable on the vintage green strap but likely would be on the lighter ones.

    I also think, and I may be wrong, that the 'leather', although genuine, isn't actually strips of "traditional" leather as many will expect, but has been pulped and reconstituted into sheets. It's an unfortunate modern necessity to keep costs down, but in turn is far less durable than 'real' leather. At the end of the the day it's the difference between a handmade leather strap selling for £40 over +£90.

    The 20mm strap has quite a large taper [down to 16mm], I personally think that's excessive on first hand viewing. 18mm would have been better. N.B. The 22mm tapers to 20mm.

    The buckles look quite good, but they also appear a little flimsy.

    I bought two, 22mm & 20mm, in Vintage Green and the latter in Grey.. They both appear to be more brown than their advertised colour. That's not a negative however, it's likely due to the natural dyeing process and really adds to the overall "Vintage" look.

    Nice Looking Watch Strap


    This is actually a very nice looking strap...slightly vintage and rugged looking. Very thick. A few minor criticisms are that the Vintage Green actually looks dark brown and the sizing may not fit well on a smaller wrist at on the last notch. Should have added another one or two as mine wears a little looser than I would like. But it is a very nice looking strap. If it fit my six and a half inch wrist without feeling loose, I would buy another.
