Since losing three stone this year, I have a renewed passion for fashion. I have dug all my “skinny” clothes back out from the bin bags I threw them in when feeling down as I had gained so much weight, and being able to fit back in them has given me back my confidence. I am loving putting together outfits and we all know that accessories make an outfit. I was recently contacted by JORD wood watches to try out one of their utterly stunning wood watches. JORD are an American company who do cool women’s watches and also a range of men’s watches.
I chose the Zebrawood & Turquoise watch from the CORA series as I was instantly drawn to the vibrant colour of the face. You can print off a tape measure on the JORD website to ensure you get the correct size to fit your wrist. I did get a few spare links in the box – but hopefully I can keep my weight off so wont need them!
When the watch arrived, I was really impressed as it came in a gorgeous large wooden box and was snugly fitted onto a little pillow. The packaging would make it a wonderful gift as it really felt of high quality. It is a really unique watch as it does not require a battery and is a self-winding automatic watch. I have to admit I did initially struggle being able to pull the dial out at the side as it was tightly fitted but did manage it and was able to adjust the time. The watch clips together at the back and given how much I use my hands each day running after three kids, it didn’t pop open.
I have had lots of comments on my watch as it’s unusual not being a standard watch but being made of wood. I love how sleek it looks when on and really makes an impact with the turquoise against the brown of the wood. The watch is splash proof but it’s not advisable to submerge it in water.
I do like a little hint of bling and was drawn to the jewels on the face too. They really finish off the gorgeous design. I’ve been needing a watch what with school and nursery drop off and pick ups, I spend my life being a taxi and we cannot keep my kiddie passengers waiting!
I am really pleased with the watch and love how versatile it is so you can wear it when dressed up or dressed down. It is comfortable and stylish – just don’t go swimming in it! JORD offer free postage worldwide and have a huge range of ladies and men’s watches to choose from.
