A UNIQUE MINIMALIST ACCESSORY: WOOD WATCHES

True story: I recently attended a fitness media event where we were required to take off our jewellery and accessories. Blame it on the endorphins, but after the event, I forgot to put my watch back on. Someone eventually found it and yelled “Who’s watch is this?” to no one in particular. We all looked her way and someone else in the room exclaimed “Everyone has that watch; ladies, check your wrists!” 

We all laughed because it was true. The watch in question was very trendy, but it made me realize that everyone had it. I love a good trend as much as anyone else, but my watch suddenly didn’t feel special anymore.  

Ever since then, I’ve been keeping an eye out for unique watches. I’ve looked at different shapes, colours, and sizes, but it wasn’t until I discovered wood watches that I found something I liked.  

That’s right - believe it or not, this watch is made out of wood. JORD makes modern and classic style watches out of a variety of 100% natural woods, including olive, maple, rosewood, walnut, and sandalwood. They make watches for women and men, but I chose the Frankie, which is actually a unisex watch due to its oversized, chunky appearance. I was drawn to its minimalist style and dark wood, but I also appreciate that you can get it engraved, making it even more special. I mean, who doesn’t love a good monogram?!

The surprising thing I love most about my JORD is that it’s the most lightweight watch I’ve ever owned. It wasn’t something I was actively searching for, but it’s a nice feature that I didn’t even know I wanted.
