Seiko gulf (7559-6009)

Hey guys! My girlfriend came across this watch at a thrift store. I have only seen one other seiko with a gulf dial while researching online and I know very little about it. Any info out there? Thanks for the help!

The watch was originally in rough condition and non running, so I bought the exact same model off ebay and swapped the gulf dial to the working model (pictured above).

This is really cool. Great find.

This is why I love to peruse thrift stores. Love to find underappreciated items and give them the love they deserve.

Nice work keeping these vintage Seiko’s going

I've never seen it before but I would guess it is either an employee award watch or a customer award watch.  Seiko made a lot of award watches over the years.
