JORD Wood Watch Review - Sidney Maple and Rose Gold

Jord Wood Watch Sidney

Press Sample

Bit of a different post today! I've got a beautiful watch to share with you from JORD Watches. You may have seen a few other bloggers featuring a Jord watch recently, and I'm excited to be able to feature one myself! It's nice to write about something different now and again - although of course my post does include some nails too.

The stand out thing about Jord watches is of course that they're made from wood, which isn't something I've seen before and is certainly eye catching. All the wood that Jord uses is untreated, sustainably sourced and they use a variety of different woods including bamboo, maple, koa, ebony and cherry to name a few. The untreated wood plus the stainless steel buckle means each watch is hypoallergenic.

Choosing the watch I wanted to feature wasn't easy! It took me a good while to browse Jord's selection of women's watches before finally settling on the Sidney in Maple and Rose Gold. I absolutely love rose gold, so it had to be that colour, and I love how the Swarovski crystals are set in the wood.

My watch arrived beautifully presented in a wooden box, secured around a little tweed pillow. I'm really taken with the box, it'll make a cute keepsake/jewellery container.

The rose gold face is beautiful against the light colour of the maple wood, I definitely made a good choice. The 12 Swarovski crystals give it an extra feminine touch, and overall it's quite a lot more understated than I was expecting, which I'm happy about!

When it came to wearing the watch, I noticed how lightweight it is and how comfortably it sits on my wrist. Jord offer a sizing service when you purchase a watch, so you can be sure it'll fit and you won't need a trip to the jewellers; they also include the extra links should you need them in future.

It looks so pretty styled with casual Summer bracelets! The neutral colour scheme means it goes with anything.

When it came to styling some nails, would you believe I didn't have a matching rose gold polish in my entire stash!? Definitely something I'll have to rectify! I settled on OPI Designer De Better, which is as close as I could get! I added some round rhinestones from Born Pretty Store to emulate the crystals in the watch.

Having worn my watch for a while now, I can honestly say I'm pleased with it and have had no problems whatsoever. It's beautifully made and has proved to be a bit of a talking point, I've been asked about it a few times already! Due to being made from wood, it does need to be cleaned differently to a regular watch - Jord offer care advice in their FAQ section. 

What do you think? Is a Jord watch something you'd wear?

  13. However, due to the change of the content of moisture, the American Style furniture are easy to crack or be out of shape, therefore you have to pay more attention, especially in the hot summer.
