There is a buzz, or perhaps, a 'ticking' that is being picked up around Coronado regarding the expansion of RESCO Instruments - a local company that designs and assembles high performance watches right here on the island. Their new home will be at 120 C Avenue, Suite 120.
Doors open May 5, 2012 from 9am-4pm and all are encouraged to come down to meet the team, check out the merchandise and see what all the 'ticking' is about.
From their website:
RESCO was not conceived over night but rather over many years of careful planning and consideration. As a matter of fact, R.E. dreamed of building a watch company many years ago but due to the dynamic nature of his "Day Job" things had to be put on hold. During this time, designs were refined and plans were laid just waiting for the right time to be set into motion. In late 2009, the time was right.
Founded in 2009, RESCO Instruments set out to build a sleek, simple and rugged timepiece. This vision was realized with the production of the "Patriot" model which now graces the wrists of over 90 active duty US Navy SEALs. Our watches are built and tested right in Coronado California.
We pride ourselves on being an American brand. All of our watches are designed, assembled and tested in Coronado USA and bear the name our hometown on the base of the dial. In the years to come, RESCO has plans for many other models to include GMT and Chronograph watches. Due to the nature of R.E.’s busy military schedule, RESCO must limit production to 500-600 watches annually.
