05 Apr Turning Heads #Linkup- Jord Watch Review: Neutral Look with Lace, Peplum and a Pop of Pale Pink
What do maple, rosewood, and koa wood have in common? Yes, I know these are great woods used in guitar making. However are taking fashion here though. Give up? These are all woods used in the making of some of the JORD watches, particuarly the watches I own. With this review, I chose the Fieldcrest Maple watch, a watch different from the others I own. I typically choose a smaller watch face as I have skinny wrists, however this time I went for the trend of a larger watch face for a different look The Fieldcrest series is considered unisex, so if you are interested in this look or want a slightly larger watchface, this line has that. I want to add another link to this to make it more like a bracelet hanging from my wrist, and was provided with a few extra links.
.If you are not familiar with JORD, I have worked with them in the past, and reviewed the Cora Koa and Rose Gold Watch, and the Ely Red Sandalwood watch for their darker wood and beautiful watch faces. These watches have a smaller watch face. JORD is a company that I respect for their workmanship and love the aesthetic look of their watches. With this look today, I wanted a neutral, natural look with texture from the watch, lace skirt and faux snakeskin t-strap flats. ( they are new! ) A bit of color was added to this all neutral look with the pink Balenciaga Rose City Bag adding a soft tone to this feminine look. Read both reviews HERE and HERE.
The watch I am wearing, the Fieldcrest Maple, wooden watch was chosen as I wanted a light neutral shade for spring time and thought it would look great with an all-white look, or in today’s case an off-white look with a soft pastel shade. The larger watch face is brought to one’s attention, and let’s “face it” ( pun intended) it is one cool watch! With Mother’s Day coming up, Father’s Day in the near future , and weddings to attend; it would make a unique and memorable Mother’s Day gift, Father’s Day gift, as well as a fun and unique bridesmaid gift for an upcoming wedding. ( We gave these wooden old fashion modeled roadsters to our groomsmen and jewelry to our bridesmaids)
JORD has many styles to choose from for mens and women’s watches. They have ones with more “bells and whistles”, copper inner workings of the timepieces, being able to see the gear mechanism, to a more streamlined and clean look where the watch speaks for itself, like this watch I am showing today. The maple wood is such a light, natural piece it was a perfect choice for me this spring. Check out the line of watches for men and women HERE. What I love is that they are a #uniquewatch.
