    Confused Resco Instruments

    I was wondering if anyone has experience with the company Resco based out of Coronado, USA? I really like the idea of an active duty SEAL making watches that have been tested in the line of duty and are being worn by many American heroes as we speak. Are they really worth between a grand and some change and 2800 though?

    They are worth what you and others will pay for them, simple as that.

    I don't think so, but the Resco Hooper bracelet is worth $185. :)

    I don't have a RESCO watch, but I have purchased a watch directly from the owner/operator Rob Smith out of his personal collection. He was great to interact with and very down to earth.

    Re: Resco Instruments

    I find them very intriguing, but I think the jury may still be out on Vananvron movements (although in all fairness, I've only done a cursory search of Val-Swiss in the past).

    I like the designs, the overall look and the premise....but I always hesitate when it comes to watches that are closely tied-in to the military. I do like that Resco doesn't brand their watches with the SEAL insignia (although the Trident second hand may be a nod in that direction). I think it's a personal thing, as I occasionally wonder if it's not just a bit insulting when guys (who clearly never served) are wearing those "Spec-Ops" branded "tactical" watches. I mean, are they wearing them as a tribute or are they simply poser-wannabees that think they're tough?

    On a side note, I really like the Kobold SEAL watch and the fact that you have to prove you passed BUDS to purchase one. I have a lot of respect for how they're "protecting" the integrity of the SEAL name.

    Sorry, I kinda ran off on a tangent there. Again, I like them, have considered the Patriot myself....but unfortunately can't speak to their quality. Following is an older thread that you may find interesting, and if you haven't already done so, you may want to have a look at Kobold Watches (I kinda dig them too)...

    I had a mild interest for the Hooper because I love Jaws, but that's about it.
