I’ve been searching for a new watch for a while. I wanted one with a dark, preferably black, watch face, and a large diameter so that it had a slight oversized look on my small wrist without going overboard. When I saw the Frankie series of watches from JORD Wood Watches, I knew I had found my new watch. I went back and forth on the different colors. The navy, green, and pink watch faces all looked so nice. In the end, I went with what I had originally wanted: black.
What makes JORD watches unique is that, you probably guessed it, they’re all made of wood. They’re made of ebony, acacia, bamboo, maple, and walnut, to name a few. I’ve always loved wood accents and wood craftsmanship, but I didn’t know how much until my boyfriend and I started the design process for our home renovation. As I browsed through Pinterest, the homes that caught my eye all had strong elements of natural wood based design. Butcher block countertops, shaker cabinets, farmhouse dining tables, wood armchair legs, wood consoles, and so on. I love the way wood warms up a home. Similarly, when they’re used as the material for watches, they evoke all the same feelings but stand out because it’s so different than other watches. I love that the wood softens the strong color and that it’s matte. My Jord watch is a beautiful statement piece and I love having a little piece of nature on my wrist.
Thanks to Jord Wood Watches for letting me pick out such a beautiful piece to wear!
