Designer Wood Watch From JORD22:04:00
I don't often wear watches, I have always found them uncomfortable, mainly because if the weather is hot they burn your skin and if it is cold they can feel so cold on your skin. I used to find myself taking them off or opting not to bother at all and using my phone to tell the time. I recently came across some photos on Instagram of Jord wooden watches and thought they looked really interesting and that they would most probably solve the problems I have with watches as wood is a much more natural material and it certainly helps that they look gorgeous.
Whilst on holiday, I received an email from JORD asking if I would like to review one of their men's or women's watches. I jumped at the chance to try one out for myself rather than the men's range, sorry Dad! I went for the Dark Sandalwood and Emerald from the Frankie Series and I finally received it a couple of weeks ago. It was totally worth the wait. I love it so much. I have even found myself dressing in colours that set it off, I know I really am that sad!
It arrived in a beautiful wooden box with a magnetic lid and a drawer at the front. The box would be great for storing jewellery. I have been keeping my rings in the little drawer when I take them off. The watch was a little bigger than I expected and so I may need to have a link removed at a local jeweller which I am sure won't cost much.
The quality of the watch itself is so good. It looks and feels really well made, it is comfortable to wear and is easy to put on and take off. It has everything you could ask for in a watch. It will go with pretty much any outfit but I love to wear it with green or black as the Emerald colour really stands out against these darker colours. It really is the most beautiful watch I have ever seen or worn and I would definitely buy from them in the future to add to my collection or purchase a special gift. I love that every watch will be unique. The grains, textures and patterns in wood are never completely the same and so no two watches will be identical. How amazing is that?!
What I really love about JORD is that if you look on the website you can find out all about the materials used in making the watches. You can find out all about the kind of wood used for each watch, as they use a huge range of different woods across the ranges. I found it really interesting reading about Sandalwood. Also the face is made from sapphire glass which is very scratch resistant. A lot of thought obviously goes into the materials used to create, strong, versatile time pieces.
