It really is time, now that the newborn fog is slightly lifting, to start to feel more human again and give myself a treat. And a wonderful way to give yourself a treat when none of your clothes really fit properly, and you really don’t need another bite of chocolate.. how about, a beautiful new accessory? Something really special, something to bring some shine and beauty into your every day outfits? My spirits were immediately lifted when I opened a very exciting parcel, just for me. I was contacted by JORD watches who gave me the opportunity to choose a watch from their website. I haven’t worn a watch for years, when my last one broke I’ve just relied on my phone to tell the time, watches seemed like shiny jewels that other people wore, but not me. So this was a huge treat, and even more so when the watch arrived.
JORD is a unique watch brand, not least because the watches are all made from wood. JORD is run by ‘artists, designers, marketers and minders’. They create timepieces that are modelled after a modern lifestyle, valuing sustainability, efficiency, and experimental living. Sounds good doesn’t it? The box on it’s own is an absolute treat as you can see, made from beautiful, tactlie wood, it just asks to be stroked! It even has a ‘secret’ drawer, perfect for keeping precious pieces of jewellery to wear with your watch.
The watch I chose was the ‘Zebrawood and Champagne‘. I’d never heard of Zebrawood before. It’s native to West Africa, and has a striking grain contrast, it’s really stunning.
The watch itself certainly has a feel of absolute luxury about it. It’s fashionably chunky but not at all heavy, and is such a treat to wear. It has a large face, with sapphire crystal glass, and is easy to put on and take off with a push button buckle fastening.
I absolutely love my new watch from JORD. They make both men’s and women’s watches, all made from an incredible range of wood with a beautiful range of faces. The watches ship from the United States, but mine arrived with me in the UK within only a few days of despatch, and their customer service is amazing. Your watch can be personalised and engraved, and is made to fit your wrist perfectly. Their website even has live chat, which can help if you’re struggling to make up your mind or have any questions!
I think a JORD watch would made a perfect gift for someone special this Christmas. Head on over to the JORD website to take a look at their range.. I can guarantee you will be tempted!
