Gen1 Patriot

frog·man noun \ˈfrȯg-ˌman, ˈfräg-, -mən\: a man (especially a man in the military) who uses special equipment to work underwater for long periods of time. : A Navy Man equipped (as with face mask, flippers, knife and RESCO watch) for extended periods of underwater swimming; especially: A Navy Man so equipped for military reconnaissance and demolition. Also known as “U.D.T.” Members (Underwater Demolition Team).

Made for Frogmen. Founded in 2009, RESCO Instruments set out to build a sleek, simple and rugged timepiece. This vision was realized with the production of the Gen1 Patriot model which now graces the wrists of over 100 active duty US Navy SEALs.

Our watches are built and tested in Coronado California. The Patriot line is the only watch that has been field tested through every phase of NSW training by actual operators providing feedback and design input. The result is one very rugged timepiece worn by more actual SEALs than any other watch claiming to be the “Official Watch.” While there is no official watch of the U.S. Navy SEALs, if there ever were one, the RESCO Gen1 Patriot would be it.

This is the re-edition of the original RESCO Gen1 Patriot, the watch that put us on the map and became a favorite of SEALs of both coasts. Built to Frogman specification and ready for anything, the Gen1 is back in the RESCO lineup.


Update... While we have a handful of Pvd Gen1s, the Stainless models are currently sold out; more inventory is due late 2017; please email if you would like to be added to the wait list.
