I have been loving the colour Rose gold ALOT lately and especially in accessories. I was recently contacted by a company called Jord which you can visit here and they specialise in making and selling wooden wrist watches. Their style is guided by a deep appreciation for natural element and modern design. Wood is their main feature because they choose and love to use woods because of it's intricacy and multiplicity. They believe that each watch is as distinctive as the owner.
Jord has a collective of artists, designers and watchsmiths. You can tell that alot of planning and hardwork has gone into these watches because the craftsmanship is on point!
I was allowed to choose which timepiece I wanted to review and feature and seeing as my obsession for rose gold continued, it would make sense to opt for the Sydney Maple and Rose Gold watch and when it arrived, I was amazed at how classy and modern it looked.
Jord make both men's and women's watches and there are so many styles to choose from! You can choose the most basic looking piece or a statement piece, both are equally just as nice.
We designed our Sidney series in an effort to capture both the venturesome spirit and the quintessential styling of a modern watch wearer. The chronograph functionality is lightened by our iridescent dial and fixed crystal bezel. With a substantial case and band the Sidney is bold and reaches beyond a typical lady's sport timepiece.
My parcel came pretty swiftly though it was sent from the U.S, when I opened up the parcel, I saw a wooden box with 'J' carved into it. I must say the packaging was pretty neat. The watch was resting on a small cord material cushion, which kept it nice and snug. The box also contained small informative cards on how to use the watch to a way to be featured on their website by simply using the hashtag #Jordwatch. I was also sent some extra links just incase the watch was too tight. I was asked to give my wrist measurements because the watchsmith would size it before sending it off. The watch was a bit tight at first but I managed to fix this little issue and before you know it I was wearing the watch and it was surprisingly lightweight! I have such small and dainty wrists and the last thing I want is for it to be heavy. The watch features a deployment buckle with push button, sapphire crystal face, seiko quartz chronograph stopwatch movement, screw down crown and real swarovski crystals.
Since I received it, I have been wearing it everyday. I have to admit this is my first proper watch. I was on the look out for watches but didn't want to go for the typical Michael Kors watch, I like how this particular piece is unique, the wood looks amazing in conjunction with the metal detailing and rose gold face. It's the perfect accessory!
I am in love with my new watch and I cannot thank Jord/Wood Watches enough for my lovely timepiece, go and check out their site, I guarantee you'll love something from them!
