You may be aware by now that I have a love of jewellery, which includes watches, and just recently a love of wood watches, so when I was asked if I would like to review a wooden watch by Yakwood I could not have been happier.
I was asked to choose a watch of my choice and eventually after spending my time looking at all the watches I chose the couples two tone circular watch from their Bobo Bird collection. I chose this watch as it is available for either a woman or a man. With Christmas aproaching would make a great gift idea for a couple.
The watch arrived in a lovely wooden box and presented on a cushion. I could not wait to try the watch on. On removing this watch from the box I was instantly impressed. You can instantly see although it is made of wood, the finish was lovely and the watch itself very lightweight. On trying the watch on it was too big for me and would need adjusting. You can easily fix this by removing links. You can either do this yourself, or a pop into a jewellery store to have it resized.
Those eagle eyed of you will note this is my husband wearing the watch. He is wearingthe watch just for the purpose of taking a picture of the watch on. As with any watch you own, you never really know how it works and feels until you wear it.
I wear this watch daily, and as it is so lightweight I hardly know I am wearing it, yet it is sturdy and through normal wear and tear and daily use, it is still looking brand new without any marks on it.
Yakwood have a lovely collection of watches (and wood framed glasses) on their site to suit any taste, and at great prices too, and are lovely as a treat for yourself or as a gift idea.
