I’m one of those people who are super picky about how I accessorize. I hate feeling weighed down by heavy pieces, but I also feel underdressed if I don’t have at least one accessory on. I was recently introduced to JORD watches. JORD, happens to be swedish for earth, soil, or land – which is appropriate seeing as all their watches are all primarily made out of wood – like this koa and rose gold Cora watch.
Having worn it for a while now, I feel like this watch is definitely one of my favorite accessories. It’s unique and eye catching enough to make a statement, while not feeling overwhelming. The Cora watch by JORD is their first Lady’s automatic timepiece. The face is rose gold with swarovski crystals denoting the time. The entire band is made out of wood – which is splash proof, but not meant for total submergence. It’s quite beautiful, and I’m completely bowled over with the amount of detail that JORD obviously invests in their watches. From the packaging – a wood box with the JORD insignia – to the watch itself, they obviously know what they’re doing!
I have to tell you though, I absolutely loved being able to see the inside of the watch from the back – it’s so cool! The watch itself is surprisingly light, but incredibly sturdy – and you can get the watch sized to your specifications.
I’ve been wearing it for almost a month now and I’ve gotten loads of compliments and questions about where I got it. What I love is that the watch can be worn solo, or with bangles and bracelets that play up the warm tones of the wood and rose gold face. The Cora boasts a number of features including a deployment buckle with push button and runs at about $275, JORD has a wide selection of both Men and Women’s watches that range anywhere from $120 to $295. I really encourage you to check them out, my sisters and I have been prowling about the Men’s watches – we’ve got our eye of the 746 and Dover style watches, which our dad would just love for Christmas!
