Time is a very valuable thing. Maximising and managing our time effectively is something that we all try to do well. My husband will tell you I am a complete punisher when it comes to making sure we are on time. I pride myself on being punctual for work and family commitments and need to be aware of the time in regards to getting the kids and myself to several different places at once. The importance of keeping time is a huge part of my day-to-day life and so when it comes to wearing a watch, I love to wear something that stands out.
There is something more enjoyable than just looking at your iPhone to tell you what the time is. There is something about a unique time piece and it comes in the form of a very cool watch. That’s why I was thrilled when Jord Wood Watches contacted me in regards to wearing one of their beautiful watches and reviewing their unique wood watches, I couldn’t say no.
When choosing my watch, I was immediately drawn to the Frankie Series and picked the Koa and Ash watch. The Koa wood is native to Hawaii and I was highly impressed to note that there was information on the texture and hardness of the wood as well as its sustainability. This particular wood is noted on their website as being of least concern by the IUCN and is not listed in the CITES Appendices. It was interesting to learn that depending on when the wood is harvested, this will affect the colour of the wood ranging from medium gold to reddish-brown which means you really are getting a totally unique watch.
When I was choosing a women’s watch, I liked that there was the choice between smaller faces and larger faces. Personally, I have always loved larger faces on women’s watches and they also offered the same amazing range with the men’s watch choice. Jord designs are slick, they feel extremely comfortable to wear and complete my look in the morning.
It was personal before the watch had even arrived, as each customer is asked to measure their wrist. This means it is your exact fit.
It was already my unique and personal watch.
The super fast delivery and easy tracking that was sent to me meant that I knew exactly which day to pounce the postman and squeal with delight that something beautiful was arriving for me and not the kids. The moment I opened the beautiful wooden box, the smell of the Koa wood was just beautiful. Inside the box was instructions for caring for my watch and although I didn’t need them, there were some added links placed inside in case I had measured the wrong sizing for my wrist.
Being a busy working mum, most of the week I live in jeans and a tee, so accessories, like this cool watch, to me are something that makes me feel a little smarter and a bit dressier when at work or on the school run. I also love the fact that in the evening when I am out, the watch looks fabulous dressed up and goes with just about anything.
Being a beautiful dress watch and the wood being natural and so unique it isn’t something I wear to the gym or swimming so I wasn’t bothered by the fact that it shouldn’t be submerged in full water (3ATM) but is fine if out and about and is splash-proof. I was also happy that Jord offers a 1 year warranty with the watch if there are any problems.

Luxury Wooden Watch
Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it, you can never get it back.
