    Resco Patriot Problems

    I've been a Resco Patriot owner for just over a year. It worked great up until a few months ago. It's been back 2 times and I'm still having problems with a $1200 watch.
    I noticed I was losing about 20 minutes every few days. I sent it back when it returned I noticed I was losing about an hour a day. I watched as the second hand, moved around like normal and the minute hand did not. I boxed it up and it went back. I just got it back last Thursday and noticed when I pull out the crown to set the time, I try to push it back in and have to play with it a little to get it just right for the crown to move in. I have watches that don't cost a quarter as much and the crown pushes in perfectly every time. At this point I think that Resco has no quality control. This watch should have not left the shop especially after its 2nd trip.

    I emailed Resco again and sent a short 10 second video of me trying to push the crown in. I hope they make it right this time because it's getting old.

    Here is the video I emailed Resco. It was taken with my cell phone so quality sucks but you can see the crown will not stay in.

    I used to have a Patriot myself and found it a real pain to set the crown back in. The minute hand would jump or it took about 4-5 tries for the stem to pop in.
    Hope it works out for you.

    At this point I'd ask for a full refund. I always found the watch to be overpriced in the first place. The crown on mine wasn't super smooth but it worked ok.
    I wish you the best but after three tries Id take my money back and put it in another watch like the upcoming Korsbek maybe or a Benarus or Zixen...

    After over a year, if they offer me a refund, I'll take it.

    Sorry to hear. I've had nothing but great stuff from RESCO. I think it must have been a bad movement. I am surprised they didn't replace it.

    I'm suprised they didn't replace the movement, too. I'm going to try to get a full refund. I like the watch but I'm tired of the problems. I can only imagine what kind of trouble I'm going to have when it's out of warranty.

    I hate to say it, but I should have listened to my wife and bought a watch from an established company.

    Re: Resco Patriot Problems

    I sent mine back for service 3 weeks ago. Was notified that it was received and have not heard back since. Hoping to get it back soon. I have a new leather strap for it and miss it in my rotation. Mine started out 30+ secs/day and gradually increased to +2 to +3 minutes/day and I felt it was time for servicing. I have been happy with the watch thus far and look forward to seeing how it runs when I get it back. Sixgunner, sorry to hear you have had problems with your Patriot. Hope things work out to your satisfaction.

    Mark,
    I guess they have been busy at Resco. It took about a week for them to answer one of my emails. It takes time but I like to have a record of what they say, so no one gets mixed up.
