Now firstly, I must admit that I was supposed to this post quite a few months ago, but one thing after another got in the way resulting in there never being quite the right moment to do the justice this beautiful item completely deserves.
You see I was very kindly asked by JORD if I’d like to review one of their wood watches and to tell you all about them. Initially I thought “Wooden watches..? Surely not…” But yes, they’re a real actual thing and they are even better than I could’ve anticipated.
I chose this stunning piece from the Delmar series as a gift for my other half. The muted mid-toned wood and green face seemed like the perfect choice to fit in around his wardrobe and he could easily transition it from casual day-to-day wear to more formal occasions with a unique edge.
The watch arrived beautifully packaged in its own wooden presentation box and upon opening, really does have a timeless yet quirky appeal to it. Despite being made of wood and having the potential of feeling delicate, the reality is quite the opposite, the Delmar has a really solid, chunky and tactile feel to it even though it’s extremely light and comfortable to wear. I must also add that each watch made by JORD is splash proof they’re not designed to be fully submerged in water.
The Delmar watch is brilliantly made with quality, sustainable materials. All woods used are ethically sourced and the current series includes bamboo, maple, sandalwood, blackwood, cherry, zebrawood and koa.
The Perfect Gift:
By their nature and materials used to make them, JORD watches feel like a very personal and meaningful gift to give to your loved one. My partner was so impressed on opening his and really enjoys the feeling of having something different to the norm and has received dozens of compliments on the piece. The Delmar watch is the perfect gift for a special anniversary or birthday, or even Father’s Day if you really want to spoil Dad. I honestly can’t rate the Delmar and indeed JORD high enough and am so pleased to have been given this opportunity to share them with you.
Please note: JORD very kindly sent me the Delmar watch for the purpose of this article, however, all editorial and opinion is completely honest and my own.
