A little change of post today, for the first time Jonny is featuring on my blog! When JORD got in contact and asked if I would like to gift Jonny with a watch I knew he would love it, as a self confessed watch hoarder why would he not want to add another watch to his ever growing collection.
JORD is an American company run by artists, marketeers, designers and a host of just down right creative minds who have a vision to create timepieces which are suited to the modern lifestyle while being sustainable, efficient and unique to the market.
Jonny got to pick the style he wanted and I think he went for such a beautiful choice in the Dover Ebony & Copper*. You see all JORD watches are made from wood, at first I thought could you really get a fashionable and stylish watch made of wood? Turns out you sure can and they are killing it. All of them are customisable and you can get them sized. We did do the sizing but it is still a bit big for him but this is easily fixed. The wood is ebony and is set off by the beautiful face of real copper and the workings of the mechanism being seen to make this a real statement and such an elegant piece, in all honesty I am a tad jealous and I love the anything copper.
He like me was a bit dubious about a wood watch but once he had it out the box it was another story, it was presented so nicely and is a luxury item that he though is a real statement to wear because honestly it doesn’t look like wood. Though they don’t just do men’s watches they also do ladies watches too which I need! The ebony and Dark Sandalwood are my two favourite woods and they have such varied colour faces so there’s lots of choice.
Jonny wore it a lot in Budapest as you can see, we went by their ethos that people don’t just have somewhere to be they have somewhere to go and whilst we explored the city it was a saving grace in keeping us on track to exploring so many things in just 3 days. If you want to explore and have JORD keep track of the moments that count then don’t worry because while yes they are a US company they ship worldwide for FREE!
