Orient Symphony Unboxing

I needed to get a watch to go with a black suit and the under $100 Orient Symphony checked off a lot of boxes. While I love the value the Seiko 5 line brings, Orient delivers a great entry-level automatic movement in a bigger 41mm case. I was very excited to get this watch over the weekend and hope to wear it alot in the upcoming weeks. I hope you enjoy my Orient Symphony Unboxing!
