I love watches, I think they make a great accessory piece and I feel naked when I don’t wear one. The watch I did have has played up since I bought it, deciding one minute it was going to stop working and then the next minute it’s fine so I was definitely in the market for a new one.
When I was first asked if I would like to try a watch by JORD I just wasn’t sure. I loved how unique the wood watches are and how they looked, unlike any style I have seen before and made entirely from natural sustainably sourced wood. However, I did feel they looked a bit big and since I have slim wrists I was worried the watch wouldn’t fit and that it would look too big on. I shared my concerns with Justine (who approached me) and she was more than happy to get the strap adjusted before sending it to me and also told me which watches have a smaller watchface. I finally chose the Fieldcrest watch* in the shade Maple and I am so pleased with my choice.
The watch came packaged in this beautiful wooden box with the watch displayed on a pillow. It looked amazing, I actually uttered “Woah” when I opened it. I had been a bit worried that it still might overwhelm my wrist but once I saw it I was so happy with it. The Fieldcrest is a very simple design, I love the light wood with the silver dials, it’s so classy and goes with any outfit. I don’t think that it’s too big at all for me. The thickness of the watchface is bigger than what I am used to however it’s wood, I didn’t expect it to be thin and it’s not chunky at all, it just looks gorgeous on.
I have had so many compliments when wearing this and so many people have asked where I got it from. They are so unique and instantly catch your attention, I love wearing it. Metal and leather straps can get really uncomfortable when worn for long periods of time, especially in the heat however this one was completely fine. It didn’t stick to my skin or make my wrist sweat like the leather and metals straps do, it’s so comfortable to wear. The clasp is also a favourite feature as it’s really easy to click into place and take off but it feels really sturdy.
Although The JORD Wood Watches are splash proof, they aren’t waterproof but I never wear jewellery in water anyway so this isn’t a problem for me.
From the detailing of JORD carved into the back of the watch to the gorgeous packaging, these beautiful watches are so worth their price. The Fieldcrest is priced at $120/£77 which is so reasonable for such a stunning and unique piece. They have a huge variety of watches with a range of prices which you can see here if you are interested. The Fieldcrest also comes in three other shades. The brand is based in the US but my watch arrived within 4 days, such an impressive shipping, quicker than some UK stores!
I am thrilled with my fancy new watch, if you can’t tell from my rave review I adore it and I’m so happy with my choice.
