Orient Star & Somes WZ0061FR

This is one really nice cushioned cased watch. It has a beautiful green dial that has proven to be difficult to photograph due to reflection from the domed crystal. The leather strap is nice and thick, but comfortable, and is made by Somes for Orient. Somes are a company that make leather harnesses and other products for horses.
