The Geckota K-01 Pilot's Watch

What attracts you to pilot watches? Is it their clear, dials or the opportunity to demonstrate your personal involvement in aviation? Or being able to connect with a century of aviation going back to the days of Santos-Dumont, Lindbergh and the iconic Fliegeruhren​ developed in 1930s Germany.

Whether you just want an easy-to-read three-hand watch, or you love anything to do with aviation, our new K-01 range, offers even higher quality than its popular Miyota-powered forerunners.

Product Range

The K-01 Range

The latest evolution of the range; a new and improved pilots watch that gives new levels of clarity, quality and elegance, and is now supplied complete with a genuine Handmade in Germany leather strap.

This watch combines elegant simplicity, superb build quality and a Swiss Made ETA 2824-2 movement at its heart. This is the seventh generation of our K-01 range, and believe us when we say it's the best yet!

Swiss ETA Movement

With such a high level of build quality we knew we needed a movement to match, which is why we used the Swiss Made ETA 2824-2. This is a reliable, well made and extremely easy to service movement which has set the bar for entry level luxury watch movements across the industry.

Special Features

We wanted the K-01 to be perfect for everyday wear so we opted for a 40mm case diameter, arguably the 'perfect size'.

As with all pilots watches, legibility is important to the Geckota K-01. To ensure maximum readability we have used large dials with crisp printed contrasting indices topped off with Swiss SuperLuminova to ensure that accurate time can be read whatever the situation.

This latest K-01 also features new and improved handsets appropriate to each dial version, for the A-type pilots watch we have used strong & chamfered sword hands while for the B-type pilots watch we have used thinner sword hands.

Classic Style

After strapping on the watch, you instantly get the feeling that you are wearing something special... The incredible finishing, solid feel and weight are instantly apparent, then you begin to notice the small details - such as the sunburst dial or the heat-blued hands, the longer you wear it the more it grows on you, the true beauty of a well-executed luxury watch.

Handmade Strap

A watch of this quality needed an equally impressive strap to match, this is why it is paired with a genuine full grain leather strap Handmade in Germany! This beautiful vintage styled strap adds the finishing touch and will even look better with age.
