A new G-02 has arrived - but you’ll need to be quick as we only have 75 examples of each!
Originally introduced a few years ago now, the Geckota G-02 has become one of our flagship models alongside the C-01 and G-01. Since it first arrived in the collection there have been a few evolutions of the watch including various bracelet options, a new movement choice (the PT5000) as well as a more recent GMT variation. But today the range grows even more with another brand new model introducing some exciting tweaks to the design in a very limited way…
Everything you love is still here
So, here it is. Say hello to the latest G-02, the Steel Edition. Quite a few things have been updated here but to start with the fundamentals are the same.
The watch is still 40mm wide, with a 13.5mm thickness and a lug to lug distance of 47mm. The watch still offers 200m of water resistance, comes with a sapphire crystal with AR coating as well as keeping things clean as a simple three-hander with the added bonus of the date at the 3’oclock position. Usability and comfort are important with the G-02. It was important to hit a sweet spot when it comes to sizing so many different wrist sizes can enjoy the pieces.
We’re offering the G-02 Steel Edition with the well-received and solid PT5000 movement. This offering coming out of China is a clone of the ETA 2824-2 with some seriously impressive accolades including becoming China’s first watch movement to reach chronometer certification via Chronometer Observatory at Glashütte.

A new bezel and dial
The two most noticeably new features on the G-02 Steel is both the dial and bezel. First up the bezel is now a circular brushed stainless steel one with etched & inked indexes complete with a lume pip at twelve. The dial is a new space-age style fumé one previously seen mainly on watches like our G-01.
We’ve combined this with a vertically brushed finish as well as matching the colour to the 0-15 bezel indexes. Other new dial features include silver hands and indexes, a new logo font to match other models in the range such as the E-01 Generation 2 and the G-02 GMT, this cleaner font aims to bring out that vintage tool watch DNA that is so desirable.
As this is a diving watch we have of course included lume throughout the dial, hands and bezel. Superluminova glows blue on the G-02 Steel Editions to ensure maximum legibility when the lights turn off.
Case and bracelet changes
Finally, we have a few more external changes in the form of a new finish and new bracelet. Previously the G-02 case was a mixture of polished and brushed surfaces. This naturally matched the clean, elegant look of the watch, but for the Steel Edition, we really wanted to hit home the tool watch side of diving watches. This is why the Steel models all have fully brushed cases. The multi-faceted case still appears, but this time we’ve toned it all down in a purposeful way.
Right from launch day, we’re also offering the G-02 Steel Edition fitted to a jubilee style bracelet. This polished and brushed bracelet picks up on the polished hands and indexes on the dial and combines them with the brushing found on the case. The curved ends for this strap are completely solid and have been designed to fit the G-02 case perfectly, so you’re really getting a complete package.
Only 75 available...
The G-02 Steel Edition is now available in either blue or orange with a special launch price of just £379. Oh, there are also only 75 individually numbered examples of each model available so if you like what you’re looking at you’ll need to act fast.
