The battery in my watch died just after Little M was born. Given that I was late for everything anyway, I wasn’t overly concerned, but then the lovely people at JORD sent me this beautiful, unique JORD designer wood watch to review. It has arrived at just the right time as I’m starting to feel like I can actually do this parenting thing, so it would be nice to know what time it is!
I’ve been wearing it for just a few days but it’s so gorgeous I can’t actually stop looking at it. I checked the time seven times in a ten minute period the first day I wore it. The only thing I was concerned about was that the watch face looked quite large for my skinny wrist – but the lovely people at JORD even sized it for me before sending! The colour of the face is just so unusual – not the sort of thing you see usually on a women’s watch. It really is striking to look at.
Added to that of course is the fact that the whole bracelet and back of the watch is made from wood. Yes, wood! Mine is dark sandalwood. It’s such a rich colour and the mint-coloured face looks stunning next to it. One of the things my dad commented on when I showed it to him was the gorgeous smell. It really does smell delicious when you open up the box. A real treat!
The box itself is impressive – it’s such a unique gift to open. I spent ages looking at the box – it’s even got a hidden drawer in the bottom where you could store your other jewellery.
The JORD designer wood watch would make an excellent Christmas present. It’s just such a cool watch! My hubby has been eyeing up mine since I got it, and asked if JORD do a men’s watch (they do, of course – several, in fact!). Perhaps I need to add one to my Christmas list for him…
