One of them looks like a Seiko 009, and the other a Rolex of some sort. RIP General

Seiko 5 Military
Possibly a Seiko or Citizen dive watch on the left and maybe a Datejust on the right.
Either way, for me - this man was the face of Desert storm. At 10 years old, when I sat infront of the TV on the first night of bombing asking myself if this was the end of the world, he was the face that represented leadership, superiority and to a certain extent, assured safety. Even though I was on the other side of the world.
May he rest in peace.
Two tone datejust?
Edit: Dang, took too long to post that, you guys beat me to it!

It's too bad WUS wasn't around or he could have asked us what sort of GMT works best for guy who's in overall command of roughly million men in a desert environment. I didn't serve under him (and it would have been way, way under him), but he did seem to be one of the good ones.

Thank You for your service General, RIP
Two of my cousins served under his command. He was a brilliant and charismatic leader. May he rip.

As somebody who (also) likes to sport two watches occasionally, I wanna say: See ya up there General!... and...
For all a yooz who whine about how wearing two watches is "weird": lick the General's boots and either man UP, or be gone.

The watch is vintage SEIKO quartz diver 7548. He wore it in the Gulf War and SEIKO SKX009 did not exist yet then. Later he donated the 7548 to charity auction and it was sold for $11,000.
