Hello lovelies,

 

Let's take a little break from nail polish and have a look at what's new in the world of JORD Wooden Watches. I like to wear these so from time to time I show you some of the new pieces. I have promised to review one of their new limited edition Delmar Drift colour combinations. I haven't seen the Delmar Drift watch before and I thought it might be unisex but upon receiving it I've realised this is definitely a male watch. It is massive so I couldn't model it well on my teeny tiny hands so I enlisted the services of my husband.

 

About: "Our signature Delmar series is known as a watch closet chameleon, appealing to various personalities who value the bold design and color contrast. As a thank you to our Delmar fans we are releasing a much requested, limited edition grouping. We'e paired Bamboo, Red Sandalwood, Dark Sandalwood, and Green Sandalwood with vivid carbon fiber faces in an arresting array of hue and grain. Deviate from the norm and indulge in a new Limited Edition, Delmar Drift."

 

Let's take a look at the watch first...

All JORD watches that I've got come in a nice wooden box and this piece was no different. The packaging is well-thought and includes a little branded pillow that the watch is wrapped around, little wooden medallion attached to each watch with a logo, instructions booklet and the wooden box with carved logo.

 

The Delmar Drift watch I've received has a large rectangular watchface with Pearl Carbon background and it's made of Green Sandalwood. Despite this watch being on the large side, it's still very light compared to a metal watch. I couldn't feel any rough or sharp edges and the watch looks very nicely done. There is a wide variety of colour combinations and different woods so there's one for everyone.

 

Features:

  • scratch resistant mineral glass
  • double locking fold-over clasp
  • movement: Citizen Miyota 2035
  • 1 year limited waranty
  • case width: 44mm
  • band thickness: 26mm - 36mm
  • band length: 225mm
  • The natural Green Sandalwood is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils
  • The Delmar is splash-proof but should not be submerged in water (3 ATM).

JORD wooden watch would be a great option for a Father's Day, graduation, birthday present or any other occasion, don't you think? My husband happily accepted this piece and is wearing it as an alternative watch.

 

If you'd like to get your hands on one of the limited edition Delmar Drift pieces, you can purchase them at JORD website.

 

I love me some JORD watch - by the way have you seen the ladies Frankie watch? It's so beautiful! Do you own any wooden watch yet? Stay tuned for some nails soon ;)

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie

Hello lovelies,

 

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.

 

  • Deployment Buckle with Push Button
  • Sapphire Crystal Face
  • Seiko Quartz Chronograph Stopwatch Movement (VD54)
  • Screw-down Crown
  • Swarovski Crystals
  • Case Width: 42mm
  • Band Length: 225mm
  • Band Thickness: 20mm - 23mm

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!
