In an increasingly man-made world I find myself being drawn to things created from natural materials. Like wooden toys for my daughter, there just seems to be something special about the way wooden toys look and feel. So when I was asked if I would like to have a look at the Jord Wood Watches website and see if anything caught my eye, I have to confess I was very happy to!
I had a look on the Jord Wood Watches website, and there are some fabulous watches on there. I love the contrast of the wooden straps of the watches and the bold colours of the sleek faces. After a lot of deliberation I chose a watch from the Cora series as I love the look and they look so dainty and pretty. The wood watch I went for was the Koa and Rose Gold.
What can I say, it looks even more amazing that the photos! It not only looks gorgeous but it’s amazing to wear. It’s light and never feels chill to the skin either, because the strap is made from wood. The fact that the majority of the watch is made from wood also means that you are getting a truly unique item. Each link of the strap is a slightly different colour and they all blend together to create something which looks wonderful.
The watch itself is automatic, which means it’s self-winding and doesn’t need a battery. I think this is amazing. I love hearing the little clicks and whirs as I am wearing the watch and my daughter loves listening to them too. The mechanism inside looks truly magical, it can be seen looking through the back of the face. I love the fact that the internal workings of the watch are visible.
My Wood Watch by Jord arrived, well packaged in a wonderful wooden box. I love that the watch comes with it’s very own display case, meaning that I know it’s safe when I am not wearing it. (Providing I store it out of reach of little hands!). They also come with a soft cloth to keep your watch looking shiny and new and some natural finishing oil to help protect the wooden strap.
The Wood Watches shop direct from America, so they can take time to arrive (totally worth the wait though!) so it’s worth taking that in to consideration if you are thinking of buying one for a special occasion. I honestly think that a Wood Watch from Jord would make the perfect present, They are something to treasure forever.
There was only one little hiccup, the first of the Wood Watches I received from Jord had a fault, however Jord were great and they sent me out a replacement, which works perfectly.
I have to say I really am in love with my Wood Watch from Jord. I love everything about my Koa and Rose Gold watch. It’s light enough and robust enough for me to wear everyday. And it looks so gorgeous making it perfect for special occasions too.
