I was catching up with my good friend and former platoon mate (and founder of Tactical Assault Gear) Chris Osman over lunch today and noticed his bad ass time piece. When I asked him for a closer look and description, he informed me about the history of Resco and that a Team guy was hand making watches in Coronado, CA.
I'm a big fan of KISS (Keep it Simple Stupid) and am a minimalist at heart, and the Resco obviously has both incorporated into the design. Rugged and elegant.
I've got a call into Resco to get the low down on their upcoming models. In the mean time, you guys can check out their website.
From the Resco website
The Patriot line is the only watch that has been field tested through every phase of NSW training by actual operators providing feedback and design input. The result is one very rugged timepiece worn by more actual SEALs than any other watch claiming to be the "Official Watch". While there is no official watch of the US Navy SEALs, if there ever were one, the RESCO Patriot is it.
