Disclaimer – JORD kindly gifted me this watch to wear, test, and become acquainted with. However, all opinions are my own :)
Check my new watch! A friend of mine has a wood watch that I admire every time she wears it, so when the lovely people at JORD got in touch about reviewing one of their watches, I jumped at the chance! I mean, just look at this beauty…
After a (very) lengthy peruse of their shop, I chose to go with the Ely Series in Natural Green and Maple, and was blown away – not only by how cool the watch itself was, but oh my – the packaging! It comes in it’s own little wooden box, complete with protective cushion, extra links, and a cleaning cloth. It feels very.. thoughtful.. and I like that.
Luckily for me, it arrived just hours before I was due to head to Melbourne for a girls weekend (best time EVER!), which presented the perfect opportunity to test this baby out. Melbourne is freezing at this time of year, so I pared it with jeans, boots and a navy pea coat which worked beautifully. Somehow it kinda added that little bit of natural earthy-ness and warmth (as strange as that may sound).
You can find loads of other designs and styles (for both men and women!) over in the JORD shop – the lovely folks there even offer a sizing service so your watch will arrive ready-to-wear.. how cool is that?!
…And because no post is complete without Arlo making an appearance, this is how photoshoots go down in our house these days ;-)
