Default 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.











Specifications:

Automatic winding. Non Hacking. Non hand-winding
21 Jewel automatic movement
Power Reserve Indicator
40 hours reserve
Accuracy +25 seconds ~ -15 seconds
43mm case diameter, 45mm including crown
14mm width from case back to top of crystal
47mm tip of lug at 12 position to tip of lug at 6 position
33mm crystal diameter
20mm wide honey coloured strap. 4mm thick. Sewn in keeper loop
Weight of 94 grams.
Spherical domed Sapphire glass crystal with non-reflective coating
See through case back (composition of back crystal unknown)
Screw-down case back
Waterproof 100 metres
Luminescent hour, minute and power reserve hands and (hour) indices

I really like how comfortable this watch is to wear and the classic design is something else. This is one watch that is worth adding to your collection.

I love this watch. It's next on my purchase list. I like the fact it has no date, so there are no issues with keeping it wound so the date remains current. Who did you buy it off?

Very classy. I assume these are no longer in production?

I've been looking for this for quite a while but have been unable to find it either.

I do have the WZ0201EL and I love it, especially the case shape and the strap. Hard to beat this kind of quality for the price.

As nice as the Somes leather strap is, I found it too dark and conservative, so I installed one of my light tan straps and it helps to bring out the green more in the dial
