Wood is one of my favourite materials. We have oak furniture all around our house, and I just love the way it looks and feels. But I must admit, I’d never considered a wooden wrist watch until recently.
JORD, who make stunning wooden wrist watches, contacted me to see if I’d like to review one of their watches*. Having checked their gorgeous Instagram account, I jumped at the chance. I’m so glad I did, after this beauty was delivered:
Isn’t it beautiful? The watch arrives on a little herringbone pillow, in a pretty wooden box. It comes with a cleaning cloth, instructions and some extra links, and I couldn’t wait to get it on my wrist!
All about my wooden wrist watch
I chose the gorgeous Fieldcrest Zebrawood and Maple Wooden Wrist Watch, which is $139 (about £105) with free worldwide shipping. I’ve never bought a watch online before, but JORD make it easy, with a print out you can use to measure your wrist. I have really skinny little wrists so I also measured an old watch of mine to compare to the case measurements on the website, as I didn’t want to get one that would be way too big for my hand. I love a chunky watch but I didn’t want to go overboard!
The watch fits perfectly, but they also sent a couple of extra links, so if it had been too small, I could add them in. It goes really well with my coral nail varnish and bracelets, so I have been wearing it every day. You can dress it up, or down so it is a great all rounder.
The watch comes from America and took two and a half weeks to arrive, but it was so worth the wait, especially as delivery is free.
Wooden Wrist Watch Details
The watch is really well made, and so comfortable. Compared to my old metal watch, it’s a dream to wear – lovely and light, and I don’t have to take it off when I’m typing. As I am trying to live a more sustainable life, I love that it is made from wood, a natural, renewable material.
I’ve been styling my watch with plenty of coral accessories and I think it’s the perfect look for late summer.
I’ve had lots of complements, and people are very keen to try it on!
*Please note, I was sent this watch for the purposes of the review, and all words and opinions are my own, as always.
