One of only 100 made, and now all sold out, this Geckota Airstream is nearly new and may be your last chance to get one.  Model reference 281 AA.


From the guarantee card, which also shows this is watch 78/100 (which matches the case back), we can accurately date this watch to being sold in January 2023.


We have been fans of Geckota watch straps for a while, so we wanted to try one of their watches – and we were impressed!  At this price point you are not going to get an in house movement – this uses a Miyota automatic – but the other details are good or very good.  The domed  sapphire crystal is a good thing, but mainly because it reveals the dial.  The matte eggshell finish to the dial is beautifully done, and the printing very crisp.  This watch has aged superluminova which gives some glow but without it being super bright, but also makes the vintage look of the watch look right.  The hands are different, but the lume is perfectly matched to the dial.  The fixed bezel is nicely machined with the 24 hour times.  Sometimes microbrands let themselves down with missing some small detail, but here you get a signed screw down crown, there is no ‘ghost’ position where a quick set date might be and the movement even hacks.   Then the case back is really nicely finished.  Naturally the strap is by Geckota, and looks hardly worn.

This watch will be supplied with the original presentation box, which doubles as a travel case for two watches, guarantee card, leather Watchgecko key ring, branded cleaning cloth, a beer mat (!) and our Certificate of Authenticity.
