I guess I am not as enchanted as most with the preference of what a real Navy Seal supposedly wears on the job. This Resco diver from Coronado, Ca is a Slava based watch that borrows the lead from Kobold watches (borrowing color schemes too?) and others in the Navy Seal game. Their site states their is no official Navy Seal watch ( although Luminox always plugs that). Either way, I just thought the timepiece lacked vision. Big, bulky and not especially finished well at first sight.
The Resco Patriot is a Watch-U-Seek special banner blowout watch, pushing the Gung-Ho angle. Note: You’re not an ounce less of an American if you don’t buy into these “special ops” timepieces, you just a have better taste.
The brand offers three ultra-military teasers that get the job done for the mid-range sale. You may be better suited to get a watch that holds up to a weekend car wash and save a grand or two. Nothing special in the movement area or case for that matter. Just a big blob of a water-resistant watch with the Navy Seal pitch. Maybe later models will please me, but I’ll pass on this one.
