So today’s blog post is a little different to the usual – it’s about watches. Just a simple timepiece can lift your overall look and give it an extra oomf. Over the past few years, watches have become a popular accessory, either as a statement piece or an accompaniment. I own a range of watches – both leather and metal – but have never seen let alone owned a wooden one. So, I was super excited to see what the Jord wooden watches were like!
I must admit, I was concerned that the concept of a wooden watch wouldn’t end well. I was expecting a tacky, unstable strap made of thick chunks of wood with a watch-face. Instead, I received a beautifully crafted time piece. This is the Dark Sandalwood model from the Fieldcrest series – just look at it!
The watch arrived in a square cardboard box which then had the actual wooden box inside. It’s a light coloured wooden square box with a sliding opening (which took me an embarrassingly long amount of time to figure out).
The watch is on a pillow and has a protective film over the watch face. It also comes with a polishing cloth and a booklet about warranty and how to care for the watch.
The watch has a double clasp which makes it very easy to remove – it’s not fiddly like many other watches I own.
The first thing I noticed about the watch was that it was super light! Being made of wood, I had prepared myself for something a lot heavier. This makes it so comfortable to wear.
The Fieldcrest style is made of a darker tinted wood. I chose this colour as I felt that it would be easier to transition from day outfit to night as it is on the classier side than casual.
Jord have an extensive range of watches – both subtle in colour and shape, to really unique watches. Make sure you have a look at their site – some of the designs are to die for!
