There always seems to be a wardrobe change during Spring time. Out with the dark and dreary. In with the bright and cheery! One of the most classic and must-have pieces that has been popular for ages is the wristwatch. A good wristwatch can compliment your every outfit and tell time! It’s fashionable and functional. And with the weather heating up, it’s also nice to wear a timepiece that feels like and breathable.
Introducing JORD watch, the Frankie series.
The Frankie series from JORD watches is their most chic and understated timepiece of their collections. This minimalist style wristwatch comes in different colors. The one I have features a vibrant emerald dial with gold stick and “XII” as time markers that seem to stand out from the rest. Other gold accents are used on the watch, such as the inner wall of case and crown.
The watch itself is of dark sandalwood, which makes it very light in weight, that had been hand finished and pre-treated with tung oil. For the crystal, they used synthetic sapphire, which makes it harder to scratch or break, unlike acrylic or glass.
The size of the case is one of the largest in the market, which boasts of 45mm – depending on your wrist size, this could look pretty massive. The bracelet on the watch is also of dark sandalwood attached to a metal deployment buckle with push buttons.
If we want to get technical, the inside movement is Swiss Rhonda Normtech Calibar 763. Unless you’re a watch buff, it doesn’t really matter much what the movement is, except that it is a quartz (which means the battery will need to be replaced) and it’s Swiss-made.
Overall, this is a cool watch that can be worn by either man or woman. It’s large enough to fit any man’s wrist and fashionable to be adorned on a woman’s wrist.
Frankie series is $189 (relatively reasonable and affordable for the materials used) and available now on www.woodwatches.com
One last thing, I’d like to thank JORD for providing me one of their unique watches from the Frankie series. It was an amazing surprise, since I was curious about their brand for a while. You might even say that I’ve been watching it for quite some time. ;)
