The Wood Watch

32 comments
I'll be completely honest - when I first received an email from Jord Watches asking if I'd like to review one of their products, I thought I'd hate it. Whoever heard of a watch made of wood? Fred Flintstone, maybe, but other than that...

But for curiosity's sake, I took a look at the website, and I was intrigued. The pieces looked really well made, and I liked the brand's message. Wood watches are "sustainable, efficient, simple, and influenced by experiential living", making them totally appropriate to modern lifestyles. I loved this idea, so I decided to go for it. There are several women's styles to choose from, and I went for the Cora, mainly because it is one of the smaller models and I have tiny wrists. Of the various colour ways available, I opted for zebrawood and turquoise. Jord sized it for me and shipped it out, and a few days later, this rather lovely box arrived in the post.

I loved the packaging, and couldn't wait to open it up and see what my new watch looked like in the flesh. I certainly wasn't disappointed.

The watch is simply stunning. The combination of the jewelled face with the earthiness of the wood is like nothing I've ever seen before, and I can't stop looking at it when it's on my wrist. It feels smooth to hold and I love that you can smell the wood, in a subtle, natural sort of way.

My only other watch is a very dainty silver number which has featured on this blog numerous times. It couldn't be more different to this. I still love that watch, but it has been my only one for over a decade so it's great to try something new! I always used to think I couldn't wear a larger watch due to my aforementioned spindly chicken arms, but this one seems to fit beautifully.

I am totally converted to the idea of a wood watch. It might have been a slow burning love affair, but they do say those are the strongest!

What do you guys think? Would you wear a watch like this? Have a browse and let me know.

  12. Oh that watch is gorgeous. I wouldn't think to have a wooden watch like that. But it is so beautiful and I love the blue in it! That's my favorite part-the contrast between the blue and wood :) I'm glad you like it!

  18. My, this is a real beaut Kate! Love how you're so honest in your post, refreshingly so and even better that you fell in love with the watch eventually ;) The turquoise colour is sensationally pretty and I love the idea that you can smell a subtle scent of wood. A really innovative idea for a watch! Seriously crushing on all your gorgeous jewellery pieces, your ring is so stunning, as is your bracelet. Love!

    Looking every inch the stylish model too, what a babe! <3
