I know Valentine's Day is fast approaching but I'm just not feeling it this year :( So since I'm not really doing any special designs at least I want to share with you a tip on a gift. Some time ago people from JORD Watches sent me another of their beautiful wooden watches and I've decided to hold onto them until February because I think it would be a lovely Valentine's Day surprise for anyone. I got Sidney series watch in Maple & Rose Gold. This particular watch is a model for women but they have many for men as well and my other half already hinted me that he wouldn't mind one of those for his upcoming birthday so they would definitely be a hit with your other half!
The Sidney watch came in a beautifully crafted wooden box with sliding lid and it was wrapped around a soft branded cushion. This series is an upgrade on the basic Ely series that I've reviewed previously. The clock face has a metal rose gold background and additional features like stop watch and it's decorated with Swarovski crystals around it. The watch is very light despite it being quite large and I like all the little details. My watch has a very small defect on the bottom dial where the outlining circle got unstuck but I'm sure that's just my piece. Overall the quality of the watch given it's made out of wood is excellent!
Official information about the watch
We designed our Sidney series in an effort to capture both the venturesome spirit and the quintessential styling of a modern watch wearer. The chronograph functionality is lightened by our iridescent dial and fixed crystal bezel. With a substantial case and band the Sidney is bold and reaches beyond a typical lady's sport timepiece.

It looks beautiful when combined with light colours, don't you think? I have a soft spot for JORD watches because I just love the idea that they are made mostly out of wood and the whole concept around them. Plus they are so light I am not bothered by them at all so I like wearing them. If you're wondering, I'm wearing the new Nails Inc. Victoria Beckham polishes ;)
You can purchase JORD watches at their official website AND if you order by 3pm on Tuesday Feb 10 the watch will be with you in time for Valentine's Day!
