I'm liking the look of this, great dimensions too - the Green bezel looks gorgeous

Not what I was expecting, but good looking.

Love Geckota, especially that one Greg's got.

A really nice release from Geckota. Has a bit of a vintage Seiko vibe to it, and that's not a bad thing. I don't love the case design, but the whole package is quite nice.

Smart watch.

Like the case design, unusual.

Bezel is fantastic.

Lovely bracelet.

Yet to be ready to accept the font/size of the logo; could get around the font if it was a touch smaller.

I have to confess that, for the price, I'm seriously tempted by one of these
C60 FLE Red JAG; C60 Trident 316L LE (Orange, Blue/Orange, Yellow, Black/Yellow)
C65 Trident Bronze SH21 LE; C65 Trident GMT.
C90 Becketts; C9 Moonphase; C80 Sector; C8 MkII.

I've come back to this a few times. The green and orange are both quite captivating. I think the only thing holding me back is that I don't have my sights set on divers in this price range right now.

I have to admit, a very beautiful vintage look, yet sporty as well. Love the orange version. Very tempted. I have my eye on the CW C65 Automatic with the blue dial..which I will buy but this one is very tempting as well.

I am new at comparisons...pound for pound, judging functionality, quality, price and aesthetics, who wins? obviously, personal preference is a major factor. I want both :lol:

I accidentally stumbled upon their watches collections range after checking out their straps. My initial thought is that they produce high quality watches with very nice looking design, both the case and the dial. The dial especially. The brand name is not only maintain the watch balance, but the font used and its placement also look premium. I love their new racing collections. So vintage. If only they could use ETA/SW movement for that racing range, I wouldn’t hesitant to give it a try.

As an owner of one of the original racing chronos I could highly recommend giving one a try. Makes a great ‘grab and go’ and I was surprised how much of a mechanical feel the mecha-Quartz movement has. Plus, for the money, the quality and finishing is fantastic. The only downside is the lack of a running seconds hand, but I’ve got over that one now.
