Geckota C-04 Blue Dial Racing Heroes Limited Edition Watch
To celebrate our partnership with the Racing Heroes team we are proud to present to you a 25 piece limited edition of our C-04 Quartz chronograph racing watch. Each watch has a special case back which is individually numberd and £50 from each sale will be donated to the Racing Heroes project.
The Geckota C-04 VK64 Space Age Racing Chronograph blends the lines between our connection to the motorsport industry and our signature 'Space Age' design language. Featuring a fixed full ceramic bezel which has been engraved and filled tachymeter detail. The dial is multi-layered with applied hour markers, which have been filled with BGW09 SuperLuminova.
Protecting the dial is a retro shatter-proof double domed acrylic crystal, which has an anti reflective coating on the inside which improves its readability.
Powering the C-04 is the chronograph Seiko V64 meca-quartz movement, which has a chronograph 60 minute (max) counting minutes at the 9:00 position, and a 24 hour indicator at the 3:00 position. With a date window positioned at 6:00 makes the watch a very useful time-piece. It is encased in a solid 316L marine grade stainless steel 40mm case.
Racing Heroes’ mission is to give veterans a future in motorsport, offering training, experience and opportunities to be part of our team as technicians, drivers, engineers or logisticians.

Eighty-One Racing Heroes team hit a fantastic milestone
Eighty-One Racing Heroes team hit a fantastic milestone in fulfilling the vision of integration and inclusion in motorsport. Team member Gustav Engljahringer, an experienced quadriplegic racing driver from Austria joined Redline Racing for several days testing and racing in the Porsche Sprint Challenge GB.
It began on Friday in Snetterton. We had the pleasure of learning how Gustav uses a hand control system to accelerate and brake. James Webley, former REME soldier, experienced motorsport and adaptive mechanic for racer Nathalie McGloin (President of the FIA Accessibility and Disability Commission), led the way in advising.
