  • Presenting the Vintage Highley by Geckota.

    Introducing new colours - Dusty series, to our popular Vintage Highley collection.

    We have introduced a new leather to the popular Highley range called Gump leather. This leather has a thin coating of opaque wax on the surface to help protect it. When worn this will create a dusty, worn vintage look to your strap. We have named these Gump leather options as Dusty Black, Dusty Grey and Dusty Brown.

    Other leather we use for these straps is a lovely oiled Italian pull-up leather. The pull up leather gives you one of the most character-packed strap as colour changes slightly due to to its oils and waxes being mobilised when it is pulled up while worn. The leather is supple and will age beautifully.

    This is an exceptionally stylish thick padded strap featuring high-quality Italian leather, and shows off the beautiful natural leather grain.

    Manufactured using the finest quality leather to guarantee highly comfortable wear around your wrist.

    The strap boasts black painted edges, thanks to the cut-edge construction, which aids the vintage look and acts as a nice subtle detail.

    This strap also features a solid polished 316L stainless steel buckle with solid tongue.

  • Reddish Brown Strap- Perfect!


    Bought this for a Tissot Visodate in "reddish brown". The strap is exactly like the pictures and fit and finish is great. Shipping was fast. Highly Recommend this product and company.

    Good quality, but the colors are not accurate.


    Quality is superb. The leather is soft, well padded and doesn't crease when bent.
    Unfortunately, the color doesn't match the pictures at all. I bought the light brown and it's way lighter than the lightest variation pictured here. It's much closer to sand brown. It's also much less textured. It seems the pictures have been edited with increased contrast and saturation.

    Great leather, bad QC


    I brought this in dark brown. It was delivered in two days and looks pretty much identical to how it was depicted, good quality leather and well made. BUT, it has a 4 cm crease on the padded area of the strap which is just too obvious not to be noticed in QC. It is still a good looking piece, but that crease is slightly irritating on a new strap.

    An Excellent product ?


    The look and quality of this strap is excellent, however, when mine arrived it turned out to be 20mm x 16mm at the tongue end, fortunately I had a 16mm deployment clasp which fitted beautifully, Have you any more?

    Absolutely incredible! I can echo the thoughts of others, it really complements my Tudor Blackbay Black. Wow. So worth the price. The craftsmanship is exceptional and the look and feel are perfect. I conditioned the leather and let it dry in the hot sun (I know I'm kind of weird) and it really loosened things up very nice.



    I was looking for a vintage leather strap as an alternative to the bracelet on my Heritage Black Bay. Tudor's own vintage leather option neither appealed to my eye nor my wallet. Previous Geckota straps have been superb, so finally decided on the Vintage Highley in light brown. Delivery was super quick, and this quality product complements the vintage style of the watch perfectly. It felt comfortable straight out of the box, and is now even more so with time on the wrist. The texture and feel of the leather is just right, and is easily a match for much more expensive offerings. I even had a totally unsolicited complement from a Tudor authorised distributor! I'm now also tempted by the reddish brown version of this strap for a different piece. It's never easy to properly judge products such as this just from photos on a website, but in this case (and actually all Geckota straps I have bought), have no hesitations. Lovely product, sensible price, totally worth it...

    Great quality and service


    I bought this together with a butterfly buckle to put on a Hamilton Field Khaki. Ordered on Friday and arrived Saturday, nicely packaged, strap and buckle are both wonderful! Fantastic product and service, will be ordering again and would recommend highly.

    Wonderful value


    Bought the light brown in 20mm to put on a black faced Seiko chronograph. I like lighter straps with dark face or vice versa for my dressier watches. It looks lovely, they set each other off very well. Soft leather, will age nicely. Wonderful, thank you

    Top quality


    Light brown looks amazing! Quality is top notch. Highly recommended.



    I purchased the light brown,it looks smashing !!. My watch is new and this strap has given the watch a great vintage look to it. I highly recommend it. What a great service posted on Monday recieved on Tuesday. "Go for it".

    Impeccable quality and appearance.


    I bought this in light brown. It is a gorgeous strap. The pull up leather adds a beautiful dynamic to the grain and color variation that lends itself to the overall vintage look. It’s impecably well made, supple, yet firm; it requires little time to break in. It tapers nicely from the lugs to the hardware by about 2mm. It’s a very comfortable and thin strap, due to the reduction in thickness of the leather from the pad at the lugs, to the holes and keeper end. I get many compliments with it on my vintage submariner. It certainly completes the look of the watch. Because of the padding at the lug end, it’s perfect for dive watches. The strap came boxed in a nice branded case with a polishing cloth and three high quality spring bars. This strap is nicer than many I’ve tried or seen that are double or quadruple the price. I’d recommend any of geckota’s products.
