Review Seiko 7548-7000 aka desert storm

on Sun Jul 02 2017, 19:08
So after owning a Seiko 007, 009 and 7002 watches these are very similer in design but have different features or movement , I wanted a Quartz divers same design just Quartz movement a pick up and go , after a conversation a fair while ago Domecurb came up trumps and the Seiko 7548-7000 has a firm position still in my collection


So the Seiko 7548-7000 was seikos first attempt at a Quartz powered dive watch
Adapted by the 6309 platform , it soon became a massive hit and was nicknamed many years later the Seiko desert storm

General Norman scharwzkopf commander of operations desert storm , was wearing a Seiko 7548 when he led one of the strongest military forces in history to kick Iraq soldiers out the Kuwait in 1991 , in 1999 Norman donated the watch for a charity auction under the auction name desert storm and it raised usd 11,000



Mines not a minter but it's a wearer I fitted it on a jubilee and it's a great alround pick up and and go watch I would pick this over any 007 or 009 just becouse of its Seiko heritage and history

I really like my 7548 it is one of those watches that I can honestly say I will never part with. I haven't tried it on a bracelet yet though I may have to look into doing this

i always wondered why it was called the "desert Storm" didnt want to ask incae Iceblue had given it the nickname as that would have caused immediate slagging off lol!

To be fair in your defence domecurb I do have a habit of naming my watches like the ice monster and the mini Ray mears
