When I was a tween, my parents went on a Mediterranean cruise and they came home with some really interesting souvenirs and one-of-a-kind pieces. One of those pieces was a wooden watch that my Mom picked up at one of the ports on an Italian island. I loved this watch! I’d never seen anything like it and wondered why even in adulthood, I hadn’t come across a wooden watch since. Then I stumbled upon JORD Wood Watches on Instagram and I was in love!
Watches are one of my favorite accessories because they can make a great statement without making an outfit too busy. I’m always looking for a new watch to add to my collection and I knew that something as unique as one of these wooden watches (that I have wanted for so long) would be just right!
There are so many watches to choose from in their women’s collection, but I eventually chose the Frankie Series watch (shown above) because I figured it was the most “me”. The face is navy (my favorite color and a perfect neutral!) and the zebrawood is just so cool. I think what I really like is that I tend to prefer large watches, but hate how heavy they are on my wrist! The lightweight of the wood solves that problem for me. I’m sure you’ll be seeing this in My Outfit Posts all summer long!

A Watch is a Perfect Gift
The little details are always important to me when it comes to gift giving. I especially love when a gift can be personalized to celebrate an occasion and I feel like a timepiece is such a classic milestone gift. As a wedding gift to my husband, I gave him a watch with a custom engraving on the back, just to make it a bit more special and to symbolize the day. What’s neat about JORD watches is that you can have the watches custom engraved ($35) and/or the cedar box that they come in engraved as well ($45). I love the idea of a monogramed wooden box – they look so great on a dressing table!
I find that because of their uniqueness, these watches in particular make such great gifts (hint! Mother’s Day is coming up and so is Grad season!). Each watch comes in a gorgeous wooden box with magnetic closure – perfect for either storing your watch when you aren’t wearing it, or for keeping other accessories tidy in your closet! The boxes also have a cute little drawer! (see below)
