I know I pretty much sound like a broken record, but I am addicted to all kinds of accessories; I have said it before, and I will say it time and time again, accessories complete an outfit, as simple in style as they may be. However, as much as I love watches (I have been lusting over the Michael Khors gold watch for quite some time now!), I am cursed with incredibly small (freakishly tiny) wrists! To my dismay, I have never been able to find a watch that hugs comfortably around my wrist. To make matters worse, I only like large watches, and I mean, big faced, chunky, heavy, masculine watches, that look absolutely ridiculous sitting on my baby like arms! Just over twenty-two years on this earth, and I still have not been able to find a watch that ticks all the boxes.
JORD watches contacted me for an opportunity to collaborate, but I’ll be honest, I was slightly apprehensive to accept the offer as I suspected that the watch would just fall off my arms, or look plain silly on my teeny tiny wrists. However, looking through the collection of watches that the website has to offer, I could not resist the opportunity and therefore said yes!
JORD watches has an innovative concept of just using natural materials for their products; the watches are handcrafted out of wood, and focus on showcasing the luxe of natural materials. From the selection of beautiful watches, my heart settled on this gorgeous Purpleheart watch from the Cora collection. The wood frame has a naturally rich purple color, which matches beautifully with the iridescent Mother of pearl face. Adding on to its obvious luxury are the glittering Swarovski crystals – the watch is bursting with opulence. The watch fits comfortably around my wrist, and although it is a fairly large design, it is incredibly light in weight.
You can purchase the watch directly from this link.
What are your opinions on today’s post? Would you purchase a wood watch?
Lots of love, Ana
