So the clocks have gone back and it’s really rather dark first thing in the morning when I get up to walk the dog and early evening when I get home from work and fall into the arms of my family (after I’ve made tea, sorted homework, washed kit, ferried to some match or other, gone slightly mad).
But that’s another sob story.
So, anyway, the point being the clocks have gone back and here’s what I’m telling the time on this autumn – a gloriously stylish wooden watch.
She’s a beauty isn’t she?
I confess I’m a bit of a watch snob. It’s not that I demand big-name, all-the-bling mega expensive timepieces.
But I do like them to be a bit chunky, I don’t like small and refined and I like them to look the part.
So when Jord Wooden Watches asked if I’d like to try one of their watches I snapped their hand off right up to the elbow. I mean, a wooden watch, how cool is that?
So what can you expect from your Jord wooden watch?
Well the packaging is pretty cool and stylish; your watch comes in a simple wooden box and when the lid slides off your watch is presented to you on a tweed-style cushion.
The watch itself is much lighter than I thought it would be. It looks really robust and chunky, but weighs next to nothing.
I opted for the Zebra Wood and Maple which I absolutely love the look of and being a tree lover it’s right up my street!
I think it looks fabulous on; really striking, elegant and quite a talking point.
Also inside your box comes extra links so you can alter the size of the bracelet BUT what is great is that you can have your watched sized to fit your wrist so it arrives ready to wear straight away.
So what more do you need to know about Jord? Well they’re an American start up but despite being US based, delivery is free worldwide.
If you’re interested in sustainability, their sandalwood and bamboo watches are 100% sustainable. I did ask if complete sustainability was something they planned for their future and the answer was absolutely yes.
You can chat to a very friendly service agent via the website’s instant chat feature if you want to quiz them more!
I am currently battling with my daughter who is under the very very wrong illusion that she can borrow this watch. So there you go, that right there is the downside of this watch, everyone will want a piece of it!
