If you've been following me on Instagram recently, you will have noticed a gorgeous new accessory adorning my wrist: a beautiful wood watch from JORD, who create unique timepieces for people who value sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living. I had been admiring these unique watches for some time, so when JORD got in touch to offer me one to review I was rather excited. I haven't seen anything quite like these watches and couldn't wait for it to arrive.
I have very small wrists, so I asked JORD for their suggestions on what would suit me. There are several stunning designs in their range of women's watches, made out of woods such as sandlewood, maple, ebony, koa and even striking purpleheart. I was recommended to go for something from the Frankie 35 series which has a smaller face and would look great on my dainty arms. After much delibteration, I chose the Zebrawood & Navy watch which JORD had adjusted to my size requirements before shipping it out to me. JORD ship their unique watches worldwide and shipping is free!
I am so in love with my new timepiece; I'm almost a little scared to wear it in case I break it somehow! I really needn't worry though, as the natural zebrawood has been hand-finished and treated with tung oils to protect it. It is splashproof and comes with a gorgeous presentation box and cushion which I use to store my watch when I'm not wearing it. It also comes with one year's warranty for added peace of mind. JORD don't just make unique watches for women, check out the range of men's watches, too!
It gets a lot of attention, being both minimalist yet striking in appearance, and it's quite funny to tell people, "yes, it's really made out of wood." It is such a comfortable watch to wear and I often forget I even have it on. And with such a natural look it just goes with everything! Keep an eye on my Instagram feed for more ways to wear it.
