Last year I had a chance to review an awesome JORD Wood Watch. Well, I should say my husband did. He loved his watch so much that when the opportunity came up for me to review one as well, I was definitely excited!
Watches Made From Wood
JORD Wood Watches are unique, gorgeous watches that are made from a variety of diverse woods from around the world. As an eco-friendly consumer, I absolutely love the concept behind JORD watches, and I love how unique they look! They are a conversation starter for sure! In fact, I knew it would be a fantastic way to update my summer fashion!
For my review, I received the JORD Sidney – Cherry & Mother Pearl Watch. It is a larger watch from their selection of Women’s Watches, and has a beautifully unique, Sapphire Crystal face. The edges are adorned with Swarovski Crystals, which really make this watch shine! Being an introvert, I need conversation starters, and this watch is it!
My new wood watch arrived in a beautiful wooden box with a pillow to hold its shape and protect it, a cleaning cloth, and an extra link in case it was needed. I was able to get it sized beforehand, which was an extra great feature!
When I looked at the watch, it was really more beautiful than I imagined. Up close the pearl background has a very unique look that I’m not sure can be justified in a picture. Just like the wood of each watch varies based on the various grain patterns, I imagine the look of the background varies slightly as well. It’s beautiful! The dark cherry color of the wood really makes the watch face pop!
One of my concerns is that it might look a little big on my small wrist, but I think it looks great! What I love most about the Sidney watch is that it is elegant enough to wear with dress clothes but also casual enough to wear with casual clothes as well. It really goes well with a variety of fashion! I was particularly excited to discover how well it goes with one of my favorite sleeveless shirts!
Although the watch face is slightly (understandably) heavy, the wood makes the rest of the watch very light, which is really nice. The clasp is described as a Deployment Buckle with Push Button, and although the function is similar to my husband’s Fieldcrest Watch I love that the band looks like it is all wood. The metal is only on the underside of the closure, which I think just really makes this watch band look amazing!
Overall, I am thrilled with my Sidney watch! It is absolutely beautiful and matches just about anything! It is definitely the perfect accessory for updating my summer fashion!
