JORD Wood Watch - Cora Series in Rose Gold Review


A watch made of wood. Now that in itself, is pretty damn impressive.

JORD contacted me a few weeks ago asking if i'd like to review one of their watches. I had heard of the company only a few days prior to this, as I had come across a blogger at work who had too been sent a watch to review. I think the whole concept is brilliant, but as far as fashionable is concerned, I was yet to be persuaded.

The lovely team asked which watch I would choose if I could, and to be honest, I struggled a little. Some were very bulky and some of the colours I felt would just blend with my paleness. But there was a couple that were really unique, and this rose gold one just called out to me. The size looked perfect and I loved the darker wood and how it contrasted with the watch face.

There was the same series watch but with a turquoise face which is also stunning, and I'd totally recommend checking out their site HERE.

Upon receiving the item, I was surprised with how much I actually loved it. Even the box was exciting! The watch itself has crystal markers which look beautiful when the light catches them and gives the watch a classy look. I also love the metal clasp and back of the face...the latter being really intricate and interesting to look at! But the thing I love most, of course, is the rose gold. 

I thought I would struggle with styling this item as I wasn't sure what would compliment the wood. I don't think it's an item I would wear for more dressy occasions, but I really love it on a blue jeans and white tee kinda day. It looks perfect with that laid-back look and offers that little bit of quirk to a plain outfit. I don't think it's an item I'll wear daily - I love my Michael Kors and Olivia Burton watches too much to sacrifice them just yet, but I will definitely wear it more than I thought. My next blog post will be an OOTD featuring this watch, so keep your eyes peeled for how I style it!

What do you think about a wood watch? Do you like this one? Would you buy one? 

*JORD sent me this watch for review purposes. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
