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 in 40 mm and 44 mm versions, offers even higher quality than its popular Miyota-powered forerunners.

The K-01 Range

Comments from owners say everything about these respectful homages to the pilot watches of the 1940s: ‘...u get a lot for the price tag, i.e. sapphire crystal and Seiko automatic movement...’or ‘This is a fantastic watch that keeps great time.’. And how about this one: ‘Super watch, feels lot more expensive. Great flieger and fast delivery, very pleased’.

In the Geckota tradition, these watches are well made quality products offering excellent value for money in a range of styles, 40 mm and 44 mm case diameters (exc. crown), new models and special editions of existing models.

Automatic Movement

The latest K-01 pilot watches are powered by the reliable, tried and tested Japanese Seiko NH35 automatic movement with hand winding, hacking and a 41-hour power reserve when fully wound. Add impressive lume for clear legibility in dark cockpits (or your bedroom at 3 am) and you’re ready for take off.

Special Features

The Geckota K-01 watch has many special features to enhance your use of this timepiece. There’s the bevelled-edge sapphire crystal to protect the clear dial, a chunky (but not overbearing on smaller wrists) 316L stainless steel case, that bright Swiss BGW9 lume and a reassuring screw-down crown to complement the K-01's 100 m water resistance when you enter the water.
