Unboxing My New Favorite Watch & A Timeless Valentine's Day Gift: JORD Wooden Watches

I have always loved the look of jewelry with wood accents, specifically bracelets and wrist watches. So, when JORD asked me to collaborate with them I might have done (by "might" I mean I most definitely 100% did) an embarrassingly goofy little jig in my office at work out of pure excitement! I have seen their gorgeous wrist candy all over Instagram for the past few years and have always pined (pun intended) over their women's watches. JORD really sets themselves apart from many of your typical clunky, heavy, metal-based watches on the market. These watches are a unique in the fact they are made almost entirely from wood! They are super lightweight and durable, so not only can you barely feel you're wearing it but it makes the perfect everyday watch equipped for any situation...

I decided to get the Frankie 35 series in Dark Sandalwood & Mint and let me just say- I am really diggin' the color scheme of this watch! I feel like it perfectly represents my style which is simple and relaxed with it's detailed dark wood and funky mint face. This watch has two things that I really love- a) color mint & b) gold accents on jewelry. I also love that it throws a dash of my favorite color into my usually neutral-toned outfits. I think having a focal point with your jewelry is key to completing an outfit and this watch gives the perfect amount of character and personality!

I know its an odd thing to note but I am a complete sucker for good packaging, and JORD packaging has some of the best I've seen! The watch comes in a solid wood box with magnetic closure which is just beautiful and makes for a great storage spot that is great on display... You just feel a certain level of luxury when you’re opening it, like it was specially made for you. DID I MENTION THEY DO CUSTOM ENGRAVING??? Yes. Yes. and more yes. Could you think of a more perfect gift?!

If you’re in the market for a new versatile wrist watch, or for a unique gift for that special someone (Valentine's Day!), the hunt is over- these watches are perfect! JORD carries tons of different color and style options for men and women's watches! To go check out my specific style of watch, click here!

More details on my watch, the FRANKIE 35 series:

"Minimalism has never equated to more. Cooling mint couples with warmly toned Sandalwood to create a perfect balance of tone and temperature. Your time is your own. The ultra slim case is complemented with a straight line strap. The uncomplicated face allows focus, the streamlined shaping offers style. Wear time well with the Frankie 35 in Dark Sandalwood & Mint." -JORD
