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.

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?

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.

Nice grab Tony, I want one too
The Diver's Bezel is the single greatest accomplishment of mankind. While the tachy scale is one of the least useful inventions ever. Not an argument.
