Ernest Emerson Podcast

Nov 6, 2018

Rob Smith is the founder of Resco Instruments, an American Watch Brand.

Resco was not conceived overnight 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 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 Gen1 Patriot model.

Ernest and Rob discuss:

Small Towns, Tinkering, life & death on a farm, crisis, SEALs, watches, fire fighters, the Bosnia Conflict, Over-Enginnered, watch movements, PTSD, Turkish Coffee, and much more.
