I recently got contacted by JORD Wood Watch, and got to pick a watch for review. I can tell you that wasn't easy at all! They offer a bunch of designs and they all come in a variety of woods. There were several watches that got my attention, but I ended up going for the Ely watch. This specific watch comes in 4 types of wood, and I think they're all gorgeous! The Cherry color jumped out to me at first, but I decided to go for the Ely in Black, because I felt it'll match better with all kinds of outfits. The lighter colors look lovely as well, but I was afraid they'd make me a little more pale and get a yellow tint, like clothes in such colors often do. I'm not sure if that worry was justified though, since the natural material really makes a big difference in the whole look I noticed, but either way, I'm very happy with my choice! The Black Ely watch is even better in real life and I fell in love with it straight away ♥
The watch comes in a beautiful packaging, that matches the natural, sturdy look of the watches. The attention for detail really shows, in the packaging but especially on the watch. The watch has JORD logos on the sidebutton, on the inside of the case and on the back, where you close it. The inside is made of wood as well as you can see, which is good news for people with allergies, combined with the stainless steel I doubt you'd get a reaction to this watch! Each piece is unique as well, because of the wood grain. The watch opens and closes easily, and I love how you're not looking at the lock but have a completely wooden wristband. When the wristband is unlocked, it's bigger than my hand, so putting it over my hand is easy. When it's closed it fits like a charm :)
I went with a mani that compliments the natural look of the watch, with subtle flakes and stamping. And say hi to my right hand! :D I think this watch deserves something special, so I had a go at using the delayed action shutter on my camera. That was something new for me and a challenge with getting the settings sorted, haha!

I think it's amazing what the wood does for this watch, it's a bigger watch but thanks to the natural material, it'll match with almost anything, including a more delicate look. And another thing that I noticed straight away, it's very light and feels very comfortable as well! When I mentionned a wooden watch to my boyfriend, he wondered if it wouldn't be squeeky between the links or anything like that (I hope I'm making sense here, he explained it better and it did make sense to me, haha), but nope :) I don't often wear a lot of jewelry, but this felt so natural straight away, it's smooth, light, pretty and did I already mention that I love it? ^^
