I talked in my last post about how I love this time of year for the cosy touches we can bring into our home to prepare for relaxed evenings by the fire, snuggling down into soft cushions and enjoying taking life that little bit more slowly. It is also, of course, a time to reintroduce cosy textures into our wardrobes, as we pack away our flimsy summer threads and begin to cocoon ourselves once more in wonderfully warm layers of big woollen scarves, oversized jumpers and long socks.
Love, love, love this time of year!
In fact, I had been clearing out my own wardrobe recently to begin the gradual transition to Autumnal climes, when I was offered the chance to try out a new style of unique watch from US brand JORD. They produce both women’s and men’s wooden watches in a range of styles and finishes and upon checking out their website, I immediately felt they would be the ideal wrist accessory for the season ahead! Even better, JORD include free international shipping with every watch purchase and I was delighted to receive my Fieldcrest women’s watch within 10 days of my order.
My first impression was how beautifully the watch had been packaged; it arrived in a stylish wooden box lined on the inside with soft velvet, the wooden watch itself sitting snugly around a little woven cushion. It would certainly make for a stylish and unique gift. The model I chose was the Fieldcrest wooden watch in green sandalwood from the JORD women’s range and it certainly didn’t disappoint!
The level of craftsmanship and design in the watch was clearly evident to me upon trying it on for the first time. It has an easy-going appeal to it, is very comfortable to wear and its natural, fine finish shows off the beautiful sandalwood grains in earthy shades of khaki and olive – in my opinion, the perfect neutral accessory to go with your Autumn layers.
The watch face itself has a nice, clear display and I found the push button on the back of the strap made for easy removal of the watch at the end of the day. So, practical AND stylish to boot!
I have never come across an all wooden watch before, so I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed wearing it and how light it felt on my wrist. For me, I would choose this watch to accessorise a casual, outdoors look; its chunky design looks great teamed with layered woollen knits and its natural khaki colour makes it the perfect partner for skinny jeans, thick socks and leather boots, ready for those long Autumn walks in the countryside and of course, when wrapping your cold hands around that steaming cup of coffee when you return home!
Do pop over to the JORD website, where you will find the full range of this season’s women’s and men’s designs. There is also the chance to enter a unique giveaway competition, with all entrants receiving a $20 e-gift code to the JORD shop and the chance to win a $75 e-gift code towards any JORD wooden watch. Just click on this link!
As for me, I suppose I’d better get back to sorting out this Autumn wardrobe of mine… but then of course the sun is BOUND to return as soon as I have my flip flops packed away – that’s Irish weather for you.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
