What do you mean, you haven’t heard of RESCO? Well, we’ll cover the company in a short minute. We’ve learned that they’ve got some second generation models coming to market, and if you jump in on the pre-order, you’ll get a nice 15% discount.
So, who is RESCO? They’re a California company founded in a 2009, with a very interesting facet – the owner of the company is actually an active-duty Navy SEAL – which means the watches he’s creating are likely being tested in harsher conditions than you or I would ever put them through.
So, what about these new watches? The first one they’ve got up for pre-order is the Red Circle, which is the result of the collaboration with another Navy SEAL, Brandon Webb. Obviously, you’ve got some sharp red accents to the watch. Here’s a run-down of the spec sheet:
- 42mm DLC steel case (14mm thick) with 20mm lugs
- ETA 2893-2 with GMT Complication
- 300m water resistance
- Domed Sapphire Crystal with Inside AR coating
- Serialized, limited edition (only 215 will be made)
- Comes on a nylon strap; leather strap is an available option
As you can see from the pictures, it’s a sharp looking piece – not overly dark, nor is the red garish – looks to be a nice mix of colors (at least from the renders we’ve seen so far). Given RESCO’s reputation (and the movement ticking away inside), this is a watch that should last a good long time.
That is, if you can get one! As I noted above, there’s only going to be 215 of these made available. So, if you want one, head over to the pre-order page and claim yours. If you do, the regular price of $2150 drops down to $1827.50.
And I should note – this is just the first new model coming down the pipe – should be some more interesting pieces coming from RESCO, and we’re looking into getting some samples to give you a true review of these American-made watches.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
