The Spring Edit | Jord Frankie 35 Dark Sandalwood & Mint

Spring is a happy time in my back yard, as it brings the apple blossoms. I have a little apple tree, and while it doesn't always bear much in the way of actual apples (the deer help on that front) it does bring the pretty with a full display of white blossoms. There is something so renewing about seeing the tree go from leafless and dull to fully alive with the promise of at least a few red apples come autumn. All that said, one can't help but feel a bit anew come spring. Spring cleaning, and a spring edit in the style and wardrobe department are pretty standard for me. While my wardrobe doesn't change too much, a fresh haircut (I'm behind schedule on that this year) or colour and a few new accessories do come into play. This year I'm getting in touch with my natural side with a gorgeous and unique wood watch from Jord.

I am the first to admit wood isn't usually my style, but there is something so stunning about Jord watches. I am particularly drawn to the darker varieties, with the Frankie 35 Dark Sandalwood & Mint giving me instant feels.

The dark sandalwood contrasts beautifully with the mint face. Featuring gold detailing, the Frankie has an understated, simple elegance with its clean face and minimal detailing. The style is a women's watch, so the face isn't oversized, but the perfect medium size that will suit most wrists. I do love that Jord popped their J logo on the cap of the crown (aka the doo-hicky you turn to adjust the time.) It's a small detail, but the small details often say a lot about a brand.

When I thought wood watch, I didn't think of a lightweight or sleek design, but this watch is both. The wood is smooth, and moves easily on skin along with feeling light on the wrist. Oh, the best part?! The clasp. I think we've all struggled with bracelets and watches that are next to impossible to do up without a third hand (or that murder your manicure.) Jord has very nicely given us an easy snap clasp that can actually be done up by yourself.

It should be noted that Jord offers free worldwide shipping on all of their watches, and when you receive your beauty, it comes housed in it's own wood case. The wooden box is a gorgeous little keepsake meant to keep your watch safe, and with perfectly balanced humility. As you likely know, wood contracts or expand depending on the temperature, and extreme changes can damage your watch. The case is designed to help keep your watch at an optimum level so you can enjoy it for years to come. It also makes a Jord watch perfect for gifting, especially when you take advantage of their engraving option.

Overall, I have to say am I so thrilled with my Jord watch! I initially didn't think they would offer a watch in my size, as I have a slightly larger wrist and like a looser fit, but there was nothing to worry about. All of Jord's watches can be ordered in your size preference. How great is that? My watch ended up being a bit larger than I wanted (my own mistake) but I spoke with my jeweler, and as Jord noted, they can very easily remove a link or two if you need it.
