When big, chunky, menswear-inspired watches came back into fashion a few years ago – largely popularized for the mainstream by the comparatively affordable Michael by Michael Kors range – I was immediately hooked. However, I didn’t love seeing my exact same watch on so many other wrists.
Cut to this unique, gorgeous, rich wood watch from JORD. Full disclosure, the fine folks at JORD reached out to me to see if I’d be interested in giving one of their terrific timepieces a spin. I only try/write about products I actually love – and this watch is one of those pieces.
The second I saw this particular watch – the CORA Purpleheart and Mother of Pearl watch – I knew I had to have it. The color is so unique. Despite its name, it isn’t an obvious purple – my favorite color, BTW – but more of a deep dark wood with plummy undertones, making it an incredibly chic and versatile shade. It adds a nice pop of color to a subtle neutral outfit. And hues of pink, purple and blue accentuate the purpley hue. This moody shade is also totally perfect for the fall/winter months.
The wood also feels a bit more reflective of the largely laid-back style of my new L.A. home. A big gold watch feels wrong on the beach, but this baby works just as well with cutoffs as it does with a chic sheath.
Watches are also one of my all-time favorite gifts to give for the holidays – they’re substantial, and personal, and something the recipient will remember you by every time they wear it. JORD offers a variety of unique wood watches for men and women, meaning there are tons of options that will be perfect for your peeps this holiday season.
