Now as a blogger you get the opportunity to do some pretty cool stuff, so when I was approached by JORD Watches I knew it was something exciting.
JORD is run by artists, designers, marketers and minders. We spend our days creating, considering, arguing and hopefully agreeing. We are focused on creating timepieces that are modelled after a modern lifestyle. We value value sustainability, efficiency ad experiental living. We make our watches for people who don't just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go.
I ended up chatting with Sam via email for a few weeks until I could make up my mind what watch I wanted. The first thing I did was go through Instagram & their website to see what styles there was.
After I decided it took about two/three weeks for the watch to arrive within the UK. With the watching coming from the US there was a customs charge on my end of £14.95.
Once opening the packaging you will see this gorgeous wooden box with the JORD logo etched into the wood. Okay, I'm impressed. If it has beautiful packaging, usually what's inside it just as good.
Propped on a hessian style pillow was the gorgeous watch. Now I opted for the FRANKIE series - Dark Sandalwood & Smoke. I don't usually wear much colour, so I thought the darker watch would suit any outfit. It's perfect for work as I wear all black and it just gives a little dimension to my outfit.
It's perfectly comfortable on the wrist - I don't know why I thought a wooden watch would be really heavy?!
After looking a little closer, there is so much detail put in the watch. On the back of the watch face, it is engraved with where the watch was created, that is created from 100% natural wood & the date of creation. I love little extra touches like that, I think it makes it a little bit more personal & special. It also has the JORD logo & name etched into the wood.
I also received extra links which is perfect to keep handy & a cloth to clean the face of the watch.
It also has a deployment buckle with push buttons, making it easy to put on with one hand.
