eBay: Vintage Seiko 7548-7000 Suwa w/ JDM Kanji/English Day Wheel | eBay

Vintage JDM Seiko 7548-7000 with Suwa (stylized whirlpool/cyclone) logo.

This piece runs strong and has picked up a handsome dose of patina/character over it's ~35 year life. No scratches in the crystal, although the case itself has its share of age-appropriate nicks and dings. I don't know if the crystal or gaskets have been replaced somewhere along the line - I'd recommend a thorough servicing and pressure test by a qualified watchsmith if you do plan on diving with it. The hands have been re-lumed at some point, but the dial appears original. The first/only battery change marking is at '83, putting this example's build date at 1981 or so. JDM day wheel has both Kanji and English days of the week, see photos for examples of both.


I've put this piece on a Bonetto Cinturini model 300 22mm rubber strap with deployant clasp sized for my 7.5" wrist. Due to the way this strap resizes, be aware that it can be made smaller but not larger. If you don't need the strap, let me know.

$199 obo.
