A Wooden Watch For Spring

May 14, 2015


Just in time for spring, I received the loveliest gift in the mail last week. A wooden watch by JORD. 

I’ll admit, I have two watches, both metal watches by Guess, one large and one more feminine, and I never wear them. I find when I wear a watch, I just want to take it off because it sticks to me. Not so with wooden watches it seems.

JORD (Swedish meaning earth, soil, land) contacted me a couple weeks ago to ask if I’d like to try out a wooden watch, after having a look at all their stunningly beautiful wooden watches and making sure the wood they use is sustainable, I picked the Fieldcrest watch in Maple (it also comes in 3 other woods) as I preferred a lighter coloured wood knowing I’d be able to pair it with most of my spring and summer wardrobe.

It arrived a few days later (amazingly fast shipping!) in a gorgeous wooden box engraved with the JORD emblem and name. The top slid open and inside my beautiful new wood watch was waiting for me wrapped around a mini monogrammed pillow.


I was immediately taken with the beauty of the watch, simple in design and so lightweight. What impressed me most is the double clasp, really giving it a feeling of luxury.

What I love about the watch is how lightweight and breathable it is. It doesn’t stick to me and I hardly notice I’m wearing it. I really do love how I feel as though I have a piece of nature with me wherever I go and that it blends so perfectly with natural surroundings.

The Fieldcrest in maple is one of the basic watches from the collection, but if you take a look at their entire collection, you will see just what beautiful luxury wooden watches they have to select from.

I especially like the sporty Sidney maple in rose gold, a colour that is so in style at the moment and at just $199 ( about £126), it’s totally affordable luxury. Just look at the chronograph faces and Swarovzki’s – I can just imagine sipping champagne at the polo while wearing that watch so I’m definitely adding it to my xmas wishlist.

The men’s watches are equally gorgeous, some sporty, some classy, a wooden watch for any man with taste. I’m now looking out for any man wearing the 746 in black, he’s my kinda man!

Do you like the idea of a wooden watch? Which JORD watch would you choose?

    I haven’t worn a watch for a while, because they are so sweaty-making! I love the chunkiness of your watch, and the shot of you wearing by the wisteria!
