Initially, when I heard the term “wood watch,” I didn’t really know what to expect. Watches, in general, are pretty hit/miss for me. I have an extremely small wrist, so finding something that makes a statement without looking overwhelming has always been a challenge. After browsing Jord’s website, though, I came across the perfect watch!! Perfect watch line, I should say. Jord has several collections, and I had stumbled across the Cassia one. The Cassia watches are absolutely gorgeous (not that the other ones aren’t, but this one was exactly what I was looking for). A beautiful, elegant, statement-making watch face, paired with a slim strap. I decided to go with the Walnut & Vintage Rose color (pictured above). All the other color combinations are equally gorgeous, and the Ebony & Sable one is next on my list 🙂
The watch comes in a beautiful wooden box. Very fitting with the whole wood theme. The packaging is thoughtfully designed, and the unboxing experience is truly luxurious! And as for the watch, the wooden style is so unique! I couldn’t stop looking at the watch band! It’s mostly wood, with rose gold metal links woven through. I don’t know how they did it, but it works. And I love how the color is neutral enough so that I can dress it up or down.
One thing that I still just can’t seem to get through my head is how COLD NorCal beaches are, especially in the winter!! I always forget to dress in warmer attire. We took the photos above on a spontaneous afternoon trip to Santa Cruz. Initially, we were trying to go to SF, but this was the weekend right after the Camp Fire had started up north, so we decided to go a bit further down south. Didn’t really help much, as you can probably tell in the pictures. Everything was still hazy, and it was, of course, absolutely freezing. I’m sure I’ll learn someday, haha.
Anyway, these wood watches are truly timeless! I was initially worried about them looking tacky, especially on my small wrist, but I’m in love with my Cassia watch! And with the holidays coming up, it could be the perfect gift for someone you love! They have both men’s and women’s styles, and almost all of their watches support custom engravings.
And now…the best part! Jord was generous enough to sponsor a giveaway for you guys – just in time for the holidays too! Check out the giveaway here and let the Jord team know which watch is your favorite! Giveaway closes Dec. 9, 2018.
