There comes a time in a blogger’s life when you realise just how lucky you are to be doing what you love and getting the opportunity to work with great brands. It was two weeks ago that I had some time to reflect on how far I’ve come and how hard work and persistence pays off. The smallest contact can build your confidence and remind you that all of those hours behind the screen are paying off.
I was contacted by the lovely girls at JORD who specialise in making luxurious wooden watches. Created by a group of artists, designers, marketers and minders the unique and timeless pieces are a new generation of watches and created using a combination of precision CNC machining, laser engraving, and hand finishing. I was very lucky to be able to choose a style of my choice and I was blown away by this magnificent purple heart and pearl face beauty. It’s from their Cora collection and the purple heart wood pairs with opaline Mother of Pearl to showcase the luxe nature of natural materials. It is such a fabulous watch and the details on it are superb.
One particular detailing from the watch that I adore is the breathtaking back. You can see the mechanics within the watch which in my opinion makes it all the more elegant looking. I’ve actually noticed that the majority of American watches have this feature in them. It also had a collection of beautiful swarovski crystals on every other point which are sealed under a sapphire crystal glass. So many magnificent crystal elements in one watch!
The natural purple heart wood is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils and the Cora is splash-proof, making it an essential pool side accessory during the summer months. Their hardwoods are sourced from around the world and aged in the open air, sealing them with natural oil extracts. I love stacking my Michael Kors and Emozioni bracelets with it. They add a pop of colour without taking away from the watch.
I haven’t stopped wearing this little beauty since it arrived in the post. It is the perfect size for my wrist and I love pairing it with different pieces. You can expect to see lots of it over on my Instagram.
*A quick tip I learnt about cleaning wooden watches is to use lemon or orange oil extract as they are the best for cleaning natural wood.

Thank you to the lovely ladies at JORD for gifting me with this fabulous watch.
