In love with Unique Watches… yet Always Late!

I’ve always loved wearing a watch. I remember how happy I felt when my mum let me pick my first watch. We went for a Flik Flak, a Swiss watch designed to help me learn how to tell the time and I’d gone for a bold one rather than the girly one all my friends liked. That’s definitely where my love for unusual watches stems from. Ever since, I’ve rarely been without a watch and the ones that catch my attention are always the most unusual watches.

My friends would laugh at the thought I ever pay any attention to my watch, since I tend to be about an hour late for absolutely everything (oops!). It’s not to do with the fact I have 4 children, it’s just me. I do look at my watch, but I’m also overoptimistic about what I can achieve in a minute or two, hence the chronic lateness…

I won’t lie: when I first heard of JORD watches a couple of years ago, I thought wooden watches were an odd concept, but after seeing them on social media again and again, I started getting used to the idea. So when the people at JORD asked me to pick one of their wooden watches, I didn’t hesitate for a second. They create unique watches for modern lifestyles with a focus on sustainability, a core value close to my heart. Their timepieces are well built, luxurious and unlike any other, so I thought, why not?

I opted for one of the newest styles in the JORD collection, the Hyde series, for its minimalistic design. When I received my Sandalwood & Olive wood Hyde watch, I was impressed by its high-end look. The packaging was also consistent with the brand and a lovely smell emanated from the box as I opened it.

It was immediately obvious that the traditional-looking watch was also luxurious, with a strong emphasis on quality.

I’ve found the Hyde surprisingly versatile and stylish, no matter what I have been wearing.  I’ve worn it with torn jeans and faded T-shirts, smart casual outfits and beautiful dresses. Its minimalist and natural look quite simply blends in.

My new watch is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. I also love the fact that JORD have an engraving service, so you could personalise your watch or cedar box to add an extra touch to this timeless gift.

    What a fantastic watch, really stands out. I’m going to show this post to a guy at work who’s always interested in unique timepieces such as this!

      It really does, doesn’t it?

    That’s a gorgeous watch!! I too love the more unusual watches, and it must be a French thing because my 1st watch was also a flik flak (blue) and then a pop swatch (again blue) before going for my first leather strap with a face which showed the moon at night and sun during the day. My friends all loved that one!
    A good watch, and one that is timeless is always a must!
    I’m off to investigate the Jord range now, maybe an early birthday present to myself….! 🙂

      My 2nd watch was a Pop Swatch too!!! I had a few of those actually in my teenage years. They were so cool, weren’t they? Crevette also got a Flik Flak as his first watch. I do love a good, timeless watch that goes with all my clothes but is also unusual 🙂

      I love the idea of a hint list, you clever lady!

  4. I love the idea of a wooden watch – and this one looks gorgeous. I bet the wood is really tactile too – and would be great for people with sensitive skin! I’ve been relying on my mobile phone for the time for far too long – I ‘ll have to take a look at these instead.

      It does feel really nice on my skin actually!

    I think those wooden watches look awesome! Hoping they have a pennant or nurse style watch as I can’t wear watches on my wrists anymore. Love the natural colours!

      My mum can’t wear watches on her wrist either. For some reason, they all stop working after a day or two (always found that really spooky).

    Hi Mel
    What a great idea. Metal always feels a bit cold on the skin, but wood feels warm. We love wood! And the design is really beautiful. It suits your arm very well 😉

      That’s definitely a great point! I love the fact my JORD watch doesn’t feel cold on my skin.

    These are so unusual but when I saw it in real life at the retreat I was so impressed by what it was like in real life. Quite stylish!

    I have a JORD watch too and love it, it was definitely an odd concept before but then after some research I fell in love with it.
