RESCO Patriot

WIS (watch idiot savants) like to hold long and protracted arguments over what constitutes a tool watch. R.E. Smith went a different direction. He started RESCO and built the tool watch he wanted…The Patriot. As a Navy SEAL instructor and former SEAL Team member he had an exacting vision of a watch that could fit his needs. RESCO’s first offering, the Patriot, will soon hit the market. Based around a automatic Slava S-2427 movement (the Iron Curtain irony is not lost on R.E.) it has a custom 42mm stainless case developed in conjunction with Lum-Tec. The Patriot has a host of other features you’d expect from a high end sport watch including:

  • 200m Water Resistance
  • 60 click unidirectional rotating bezel with 12hr GMT feature
  • PVD and Bead Blasted Stainless cases

The Patriot is a blunt watch. Its made to provide a rugged watch that will tell you the (right) time no matter the situation, and maybe look decent in the process. By all accounts its succeeding, a prototype has made it through all Phases of SEAL training, and continues to perform in advanced training.

Cost: $1,225
