If you are a regular reader, you will know my love of accessories to an outfit. Whether it is handbags, jewellery or watches. To me accessories can make or break an outfit and also turn it from casual daytime to perfect evening wear.
When JORD contacted me and asked if I would like to review one of their watches how could I refuse. Through my husband I have found a love of watches. As one of his main accessories is a watch he has a few to choose from. I have often been caught while we are out wearing one of his watches. Like many women now I love to wear a mans watch. As it is not just something to tell the time with, but a statement piece.
Choosing my JORD watch
I was asked to choose from the JORD unique watches which this in itself is difficult, as they a few to choose from, who knew there was so many different woods. Finally with my husbands input, I do let him help sometimes, we chose the Conway chronograph watch in Zebrawood and Dark Sandlewood.
When ordering your watch you are asked to measure your wrist size. So that they can make the watch a perfect fit for you. Somehow this did not quite work out and on arrival was slightly too big to wear. Which was not a problem as was easy to remove the links by someone who knows how to do it.
My first glimpse
When the watch arrived, I was so impressed with the packaging I forgot about the watch for a moment. As you can see the watch comes in its own wooden presentation box. This would make a great gift for someone special, the box is solid wood and unlike many watch presentation boxes shows the quality of care they offer, on opening the watch is presented on a special cushion. On seeing the watch for the first time I was very impressed. Unlike other wooden watches I have seen and handled. This one felt as if it was made to last, you can see and feel the quality.
As you can see I have let my husband try it on, but I have worn it out but unfortunately could not get a decent picture of me wearing it, so asked him to be my model.
