JORD Wooden Watch Frankie Purpleheart & Plum Review

JORD Frankie Purpleheart & Plum Wooden Watch Review

It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of wooden watches (see here and here) as I already own a few of them. There’s something about them that I just love and think is so unique and quirky! I’ve got quite a large watch collection in general now, but whenever I get a new one, it somehow always becomes my favourite. A wood watch is one of those special timepieces which is always a conversation starter and a great way to embellish any outfit, especially when there’s colour involved.

My latest wood watch to add to my collection is the JORD Frankie Series in Purpleheart & Plum. When I saw this colour online, I knew it was one that had to be mine. The burgundy and purple undertones that it has to it are so rich in their hues that it actually looks delicious! The JORD Frankie has an ultra slim case and the comfort of a straight line strap, so even though it’s wooden, it sits nicely on your wrist and is easy to wear. The face is uncomplicated, meaning it’s simple and elegant, easy to tell the time with. That’s always ideal for me since I like to be able to just glance at the watch and tell the time instantly. The wooden case is a deeper plum while the dial is more of a magenta purple, so the two blend harmoniously together, creating a stunning watch.

The JORD wood watches come with a sapphire crystal glass as well, and while some of them are automatic, mine has a quartz movement. The case width is around 45mm, so you can get an idea of how big it is. For a women’s watch, it is quite large so it’s not the usual dainty size that is often what brands bring out for their ladies styles. I love that it’s larger though, it creates such a statement which is needed for cool watches like this. I did also want to mention the back of this watch as it’s completely engraved with lots of writing and details (click here to see the engraving on the back) and definitely deserves to be included! Isn’t it gorgeous?

Since this is a wooden watch, the natural purpleheart wood is hand finished and pre-treated with tung oils, to care for the material. The JORD Frankie is splash-proof too, which is ideal for me! So all in all, you can see that this is a fantastic women’s wooden watch and I couldn’t be happier with it! The purple and magenta hues are just stunning and I just know that it’s going to be ideal for the Autumn months, which is why I wanted to showcase this timepiece in the beautiful woodland scenery, with the rich warm leaf shades and against flowers and bark, showing how versatile it is. Let me know in the comments below what you think of it!

    Wow this watch is stunning Lorna! I love the fact it’s made from natural wood, and the rich purple tones are just heavenly! I’m not surprised it’s quickly become a favourite! The photography here is also superb, and I love the autumn colours and vivid flowers you’ve used as a backdrop to really highlight the watch.

    Lots of love Saba xx
