Winter Accessory Love: Wood Watches

We're now in the middle of February and in Canada at least, things are feeling mighty cold and hibernation is in full effect. It's always around this time of year where I think to myself, yup, winter was great but I'm more than ready for it to be over and done with, you know?! That being said, as I look out my window I see a cascade of pepperoni-sized snowflakes raining down and I am reminded that we've got a couple of months to go. 

I don't know about you but I get pretty excited any time I can amp up my winter style. Enter JORD. JORD is a cool business comprised of artists, designers, marketers and minders. They create gorgeous watches made of wood. They reached out and asked if I would like to review one of their watches and share it with YOU, my lovely community. As a sidenote, I'd like to mention that while I enjoy reviewing products that fall into the health, beauty and lifestyle categories, I am very selective about the companies and products I choose to work with and share with you. My rules are that it has to be a product or service that I love and use myself. No exceptions. So after some vetting I received the stunning watch and test-drove it around town. Every time I did I got tons of compliments (and still do). It's super-comfortable and makes every outfit feel a million times more exciting. So yes, it passed the test and now I'm excited to share it with you as I think it would make the perfect gift or treat to yourself of course :)

They have a bunch of beautiful men's and women's watches which you can check out here. I picked out the Frankie Series watch in the champagne and zebrawood colour combo and I LOVE it. Here are some of my favourite features of the watch:
  • Custom fit. You measure your wrist and it arrives perfectly sized! I got very excited about this.
  • Sapphire glass. Sapphire is second only to diamond as one of the hardest and most scratch-resistant materials on earth. Translation: good for clumsy people like me who are constantly knocking into things.
  • Large face. I prefer larger watches to smaller ones - it's a style preference and I love how big this one is.
  • The box. I know this is a minor detail but the watch arrived in a beautiful wood box (see photo below) with a magnetic closure. The box even has a little drawer at the bottom where you can put in humidity packs to keep the wood watch from drying out. Love how detail-oriented this is. 
  • Free international shipping.
Another point to mention is that JORD focuses on sustainability in regards to their materials - something that is very important to me. If you're interested in getting one for yourself or as a unique gift for someone you love then definitely enter their winter giveaway contest. One person has the chance to win a $100 gift code to use on the JORD site but everyone who enters gets a $25 to use at the end of the contest. Win win. Note, the contest closes on February 28th 2017.
