Sidney Design
 Maple & Rose Gold

I have never had a good track record when it comes to owning a watch. They always seem to stop
working, break, crack, chip or I just loose them! To begin with I have never really invested a whole
lot of money into owning a good quality watch so that could probably have something to do with my
'bad luck'.

I haven't worn a watch in years even though I have been wanting to purchase a good one to last me 
hopefully the rest of my life, I just haven't gotten around to it. So as fate would have it I was recently
contacted to try a uniquely hand made and designed good quality piece that I can see myself wearing 
till the day I die. 

Introducing my new Wood Watch all the way from St. Louis USA, this rose gold beauty is made from
 maple wood, sapphire crystal glass and features Swarovski crystals! Doesn't it look beautiful? I am a
 tad obsessed with this at the moment! I have found the neutral earthy tones match all of my outfits 

JORD offer a wide range of different designs and watch collections and this particular one I chose 
from their Sidney series offers just about everything you could ever require on a watch face including
your regular second hand as well as a 24 hr hand which is the circle on the right. Then there is the
chronograph minute hand to the left and lastly the chronograph second hand to the lower middle.

This watch was made to fit my small wrist, however I was still generously sent a few extra links just
in case. Links can be simply removed or added to as you please to ensure the watch fits perfectly.

These pictures below demonstrate how easily the watch clasp clicks open and closed neatly for you to 
wear. This watch is super comfy and the wood is so smooth to the touch!

I have been styling this beauty with my perfectly matching rose gold semi skinny cuff from Lumiere
Jewellers which I am also completely obsessed with! Now I can wear them both together and they
look like sisters. :)

The three crowns neatly placed on the side of the watch like most watches work in setting the time
and date on the face of the watch. The middle unscrews counter clockwise for the general time and
the two to the sides set the other three. It was a bit confusing to me at first, however rest assured you
receive a very detailed instruction card inside your wooden box with your watch with everything you
need to know about how to get your watch set just how you want it.

  1. A wooden watch? This is just beautiful!

    I chose a silver escutcheon (shield-shaped) Citizen watch for my 21st birthday from my parents & I've just turned 49. I wear it whenever I leave the house. I've never grown sick of it. I feel naked & disoriented all day if I'm in a rush & forget to put it on in the morning.

    I love the precision of all those dials. I hope you're as happy with it in 28 years time as I am with my watch. :D

  2. I've never heard of a wooden watch but it does look gorgeous! From afar, it really does look almost like a metallic watch and it looks flexible enough so that it can be worn comfortably!
