My Geckota R-01 Watch: Ella's Story
The Geckota R-01 comes in a range of colours and so initially it was very hard to choose a favourite one to wear as they all have appealing features. Originally the Pearl version caught my eye, as I have only ever worn watches with dials of solid colour so I enjoyed the depth and character of the dial, making it easy to get lost in admiration. I also liked how the silver case matched the rest of my accessories...However it looks like my preference has just changed! Classic Mesh bracelet is definitely my choice. I love how with just a simple strap change the watch goes from a potentially subtle piece to a watch that really stands out and shines on the wrist. Milanese Mesh strap to the watch to emphasise the dressy characteristics. I found the leather option that comes on the watch is great if you are after a more subtle, subdued look. Being a time only, rectangular dress watch naturally the R-01 is formal and classic in it's design. However the mesh strap really takes it up a notch and creates a look to rival high end pieces. By continuing the gold through to the strap the R-01 has the potential to emphasise the smart aspect of a smart/casual look. All you need is a strap change. here!
