I have jewellery boxes full of necklaces, earrings and bracelets. Some fashion jewellery, some fine jewellery and others have been past down from family members, I of course have my favourite pieces which are worn over and over again and some which only make an appearance for special occasions as I don’t want to lose then.
Watches are different, I tend to have only a couple of those and will wear the same one and only change it for special occasions – they aren’t an item of jewellery which I think much about, I don’t take them off so changing to suit my outfit doesn’t happen.
Recently I received a lovely wooden watch from JORD, this is over-sized unisex watch which is made from 2 contrasting woods Maple and Cherry.
This is from the Sully series. It features a large face which makes reading the time easy at a glance and a second hand. This has a safety close with a deployment buckle and push button opening which means it won’t just fall off.
This watch is splashproof only.
It’s a little on the large side for me so would only be worn occasionally however it does look great with various outfits from summer wear to everyday jeans and T-Shirts and even works well with my new favourite dress.
It’s easy to dress this watch up or down and can be worn in the day time or evening. Despite the size this is actually a lot lighter than it looks, I expected it to be really heavy but thankfully it wasn’t
I hadn’t come across wooden watches before however I do love the fact that because they are made from wood each and every watch is different and unique due to the grain in the wood. When ordering these wooden watches you can measure your wrist and they will remove links to make sure it fits upon arrival – this is great as it can then be worn straight away and saves a trip to the jewellers.
JORD have a very large range of wooden watches including Women’s, Mens and Unisex. You can see the full range on their website http://www.woodwatches.com/
Disclaimer: I received this watch in exchange for an honest post.
