Default Geckota C1 Chronograph

Today on the porch was a pouch from Gloucetershire, UK, containing this Geckota C1 Racing Chronograph.

Included in the preorder special offer, were three straps. Leather "Classic Racing" style, mesh and Nato. I'll try the mesh next.

Overall I'm really impressed with the finish, the feel and overall quality of this piece. Straps too are of high quality. And the so-called meca-quartz movement does give a fairly nice sweep to the chrono hand. Not buttery smooth but no notchy, tick... tick... tick... of a typical quartz.

Some quick pics:

And thanks guys, BTW.

Very satisfied with this one. The leather and mesh straps are particularly nice inclusions in the deal.

Since I've already been nerding out over this watch, why stop now?

Here is the third strap that was included. Kind of a ho-hum grey but it does tie into the color used on the tachymeter chapter ring and sub-dials.
