Time keeping has never really been a strong suit of mine, unless it comes to the kids and then I make a concerted effort to be on time, forcing myself to leave the house earlier than I would normally think I needed too – meaning I actually arrive just in the nick of time! My husband is the same, Adam’s time keeping is appalling – we’re just those obnoxious friend’s who are late to everything, everyone knows it and somehow lets us off.
I really have no excuse as I have a smart phone permanently fixed to my hands and I have my watch that my mum bought me when I was 21, however Adam has never had a decent watch. He isn’t really a fan of anything around his wrists, especially if it’s big and heavy which most men’s watches are, so finding a watch for him has always been a bit of an impossibility… until now.
Jord wooden watches very kindly offered to send us a watch for Adam to try out and (as he loves to remind me on a frequent basis) I very rarely get offered anything for Adam via the blog – he’s never found himself in need of a new mascara and those pretty dresses are a touch small for him so, alas, he is left out.
I chose to order a zebra wood and dark sandal wood watch for him as a surprise – partly because I loved the colour of the wood, so elegant and chic, but also because of the intricate detailing behind the clock face. Adam is somewhat of a puzzle lover and the ultimate puzzle is a clock. The way is works, the cogs, the way the pieces fit together to tick. Fortunately my wifey intuition was correct and Adam was delighted with his new watch. It’s unlike any watch we’ve ever looked at before, not just because of the styling but also because of the weight. The watch is so light you could almost forget you were wearing it, yet just as sturdy as any metal watch.
I would say that I’m hoping Adam will be more efficient with his time keeping now but we would both know that this would be a long shot, perhaps even an atlantic style leap

This watch is really cool – I like the wooden styles as they’re a bit different!
These look so cool!!! I know my husband would really be into these! I have to admit I’m one of those people that won’t buy a watch for myself because I use my phone for the time haha!
This is such a stunning watch, the design is so intricate. My hubby is a joiner so would love something like this
These wooden watches are so nice and really unusual x
I hadn’t even heard of these watches until recently. They’re beautiful though and I think both me and John would like one.

This watch is gorgeous and I love the way you have styled your images. We are needing a new watch and getting one too I hope.
What a lovely looking watch and what a great competition! My other half moans that he doesn’t get offered anything from my blog either – it’s hard to explain to him that I have to work for the products I’m sent and that they’re not freebies! x
What a unique looking watch. Never seen anything like it x
These watches are really cool! I love the fact they are made out of wood!
