An outfit isn’t complete without a watch so when I was contacted by JORD to review one of their wooden watches, I jumped at the chance. My usual style of watches features rose gold accents and a small amount of bling so the JORD wood watch Cora Koa and Rose Gold was right up my street. I have never had a watch made of wood before and the unusual beauty of the Koa really stood out to me. Funnily enough, I have been noticing the rise of wood watches over the last few months and whilst in Vegas I had seen a gorgeous wooden watch in one of the shops I was browsing in. I love the natural beauty of wood and the uniqueness of each link and the casing around the face.
The Koa wood comes from the Acacia Koa tree which hails from the Hawaiian islands and the word Koa means brave, fearless and warrior which kind of sums up the strength of its natural charm. The rich rose tones in the Koa wood pair wonderfully with the rose gold face, and the Koa wood is luminescent and warm. The rose gold face is delicate and elegant whilst discreetly adorned with crystals around the clock face. Rose gold hands and a sneak peak into the automatic mechanisms of the watch make it a truly stunning face to look at. The reverse of the watch is probably my favourite part, as I have never owned an automatic watch and watching the intricate workings of the cogs and gears make for pleasurable viewing.
Since owning the JORD wood watch Cora Koa and Rose Gold I haven’t stopped wearing it. It looks sophisticated on my arm and enhances my Pandora Entwined ring in rose gold which is also worn on my left hand. Everything about the Cora watch just screams elegance and refinement and it looks a lot more expensive that its $275 (£177) price tag. Each and every time I have worn my watch, someone has complimented me on it because it is so unusual and enticing. With Christmas on the horizon, it would make such a fabulous present and each watch is presented in a beech wood box and wrapped around a tweed cushion for optimum presentation. It’s a breathtaking package to receive and even upon opening the box you can see the exquisite craftmanship from the outset.
Take a look a the JORD watches website and you will not be disappointed. They also ship worldwide, free of charge.
