My new JORD Wood Watch!

July 6, 2015 | Fashion, Inspired by..., Loving..., Wear it!

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).

So fun! Thanks to JORD for letting me test out the Ely – I love it :)

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 ;-)

Question: Are you a watch person?

I think I’ve probably owned 4 or 5 watches over the years. They were nice, good quality, good at telling the time, and I was excited when I bought (or was given) each of them. I’ve never owned more than one working watch at any one time though, and never really thought of them as anything more than an object to tell the time. That was, until last year when Dave gave me a New Gent Swatch Watch in all white. It is a very simplistic looking watch, but it’s big, very white and stands out no matter what I wear it with. It isn’t a watch that’s there to blend in, it’s job (apart from the obvious) is to be seen.

And now I’m obsessed.

Everywhere I go, I’m on the look out for my next watch. One watch is great, but a girl needs options, you know?! So I went hunting around the web today to quench my nagging desire. Man, there are some beauties out there! I’ve only posted two here though (paired with some lovely Maison Scotch).. I’ll save the rest for another post :)

one. two. three. four.

Happy weekend!
