Beautiful Timepieces from JORD

With so many gadgets to hand, classic accessories can often be forgotten, but when they are as stunning and unique as the watches available from JORD they should really take pride of place on your wrist.

I recently had the opportunity to select a timepiece from their website and the Maple and Lavender model from their Cora series really jumped out at me. The combination of light wood with a deep purple dial and Swarvoski crystal markers is truly striking. It's very feminine in style and as I wear a lot of dark colours this certainly makes a statement and brings a splash of colour to my wardrobe - 
I love it.




The packaging is equally as attractive as the watch itself making it an ideal gift solution. Within a wooden box with slide opening lid there is a pillow, shredded paper, additional links, warranty card and user guide along with a cleaning cloth. The sizing is custom, for an additional fee, and there is a tape measure online to print and measure your wrist in the comfort of your own home for the perfect fit. This is a service I really appreciate as it means the watch was ready to wear from the moment of arrival - I didn't have to take it to a jewellers to alter.

The strap was like none I had seen previously but this was definitely for the better. I can put my watch on and remove it with ease due to the deployment buckle with push button. It opens up really well so you can slip it over your hand without difficulty and avoiding it catching on any additional jewellery.




I'd expected the watch to be heavy as it's made from wood but it is actually rather lightweight and as it is so incredibly comfortable to wear I soon forgot it was even there. It naturally became part of my outfit and an accessory I would now not be without.

The watch is splash proof which is handy for when out and about in the rain (typical British weather!) and the sapphire glass is incredibly durable which is useful as a busy working parent. The movement is automatic and therefore no battery is required so that's also one less thing you need to worry about. I actually really like that the dial has a circular cut out where you can see the little cogs turning too.





The Maple and Lavender watch from the women's wooden range is $275 (£191) and it is exceptional quality. JORD ship Worldwide and delivery took just 9 working days which is rather fast from the US.

I would certainly recommend this brand to others, especially having received so many compliments already on just how elegant my new watch is.

  13. This is beautiful i love the colour of the face. It looks so expensive and the box it comes in just gives it that extra bit of elegance. Also how handy is it that you can measure before delivery. So annoying when you buy a watch and always have to go in and get links taken out!!

  20. I absolutely love this watch! It is really beautiful! I love the colours, design and features. I would be a little curious to see how it lasts in the long term with having a wooden strap though.
