This just so happens to be one of my favorite seasons, as well as one of the most festive times of the year. Flowers are blooming, the swimming pools are packed (at least here in Florida they are,) and various festivals and concerts are taking place weekly, around the world. There is no better “time” than the present, to get in on the fun, so pull out your suitcase and Spring gear, and get ready. With that being said, it can be difficult to find the right outfit and accessories for each occasion. Thankfully, I have taken some of the guesswork out for you and for myself…because of a recent acquaintance! Last month, I connected with the incredible team at JORD watches, and as a result, I was able to add one of their beautifully crafted, wood timepieces to my collection. I reviewed their Fieldcrest line, and here is what I have to say about it.
The Right Accessory
JORD features several lines. However, for the purpose of this post, I am providing feedback specifically on their Fieldcrest timepieces. This line come in 3 distinct shades; Maple, Dark Sandalwood, and Zebrawood and Maple. While each watch is unique and beautiful in its own way, they do share the same unique design. To help you better understand where I am with each of watches in this line, I am going to rank the three pieces in order, from “Love” to “Let’s Be Friends,”- so let us get started.
At first glance, I was instantly drawn to the JORD Zebrawood & Maple watch, primarily because of its gorgeous, marble colored band. I chose it because I knew the earthiness of the Zebrawood would pair exceptionally well with a variety of outfits and accessories, across the seasons. It also complements my skin tone perfectly, which I really love! I can dress it up or down; by sporting it with jeans, heels, a white shirt and blazer, for the office, or I can rock it with a maxi dress and flipflops, for a relaxing day by the pool. Even though, the face of this timepiece is a bit larger than I expected, and the maple (face) is a little lighter in color than it appeared online, I still give it a “it might be love” rating, because of its remarkable versatility. It has been a definite staple in my wardrobe over the last month! I am seriously enjoying getting to know Mr. Zebrawood.
The Dark Sandalwood is another magnificently crafted piece. The deep brown band, against the dark face is simply stunning! Thus, this watch has the ability to work with an array of outfits and accessories, as well. While it is true that we tend to lighten it up during the warmer months, the dusky hues can provide a nice contrast to spring and summer shades. Therefore, this piece covers all wardrobe bases throughout the year. I could most certainly see me wearing this watch with many different items in my closet. With that being said, I have to give this Fieldcrest piece some major “love.” We may be spending some real “time” together soon!
The Maple watch offers the same spectacular craftsmanship, as its two counterparts in the Fieldcrest Line. The entire timepiece; face and band, are the same tint, which is the lighter colored Maple. It is a gorgeous piece and serves as an excellent base color, to build an outfit around. It is also perfect for the spring and summer months, and is great for various skin tones. The only reason this one is getting a “Let’s be friends” rating, is because it is a bit too light for my taste- for my complexion. Although it would probably be a nice contrast, I like the Zebrawood better on me. However, I could see my niece really liking this watch.Even though, you will not catch me and Mr. Maple out on a date, I can still tell all of my friends how handsome he is.
The JORD, Fieldcrest line, provides an excellent introduction to the warmth that wood timepieces can add to any collection. They are also ideal for the person (man or woman) on the go, because of their durability to withstand the harshness of travel. JORD watches are lightweight (though not flimsy,) easy to get on and off, and fit nicely into any small travel bag for easy transport. They also eliminate the worry of getting scratches on the band, like what often occurs with leather and steel timepieces, over time. The Fieldcrest line is also a wonderful conversation starter, along with adding a little pop to whatever outfit you have on. Since I am a total accessory person, I take which watch I wear each day rather seriously. So far, Mr. Zebrawood & Maple and I, have a great thing going on. Maybe… it is Love, but only time will tell!
The JORD Fieldcrest line is moderately priced, starting at $139 USD, and can be customized to include personalized engraving and sizing. The customizing and ordering process is super easy, too. I just printed out the online ruler on their site and measured my wrist for a precise fit. I then provided them with the measurements and placed my order. Within days, my lovely timepiece arrived in an impressive monogrammed wooden box, complete with finishing oil and a small monogrammed towel for cleaning.
