SOLD! Orient Star 'Somes' JDM Automatic - $335 Shipped

[size=1.35em]Here’s a hard-to-find first generation JDM Orient Star ‘Somes’ automatic (Model # WZ0041FR) in a super easy overall TZ 95% condition. Watch is about three years old and has been worn sparingly. This is the preferred first generation of this watch with black dial.
