Getting outside with JORD Wood Watches (gifted)
It’s fairly unlikely you’ll ever see me without a watch on and I've been on the hunt for a beautiful but practical watch for a while, so when JORD wood watches contacted me about partnering with them and having taken a look at their website, I jumped at the chance! When it comes to accessories, I like versatile pieces and it’s important, for me, that I wear a watch that can take from meetings to holding it's own when I'm shooting outside during the winter months without my needing to worry about the watch being damaged by the elements. I chose this Frankie Series in Dark Sandalwood and Smoke as it seemed to tick all the boxes.
As soon as the watch arrived, I roped my sister into coming to shoot with me on Hampstead Heath (it’s about as wild as it gets here in London) and we bundled up in coats and hats, our cold fingers warming up on hot flasks in-between taking shots. Not only were we rained on but we were battling against strong winds and we returned from the shoot with that glow that can only be accomplished by being outdoors in the Winter and I didn't have to worry about taking my watch off / shielding it from the rain. It's worth noting here that although the Frankie series is splash-proof, your watch shouldn't be submerged in water!
Not only does a watch need to be functional but it’s important for me to be mindful of the impact my purchases are having. JORD is a Swedish word meaning earth, soil or land, a concept that rings true to their brand. As well as being connected to earth by being made out of 100% natural, hand-finished woods, they're also earth friendly and sustainable. A great majority of the wood JORD use comes from furniture remnants and all of their watches are treated with natural substances only. The watches are conditioned with natural tung oil, not only for the sake of the environment but for those who work on the watches.
