The Wooden Watch Edit

Are you like me where watches are concerned, do you consider them an accessory or just a time-piece?

Me: Full on additional accessory.

I like my watch to reflect my style.

It’s like I’m offering the person who notices it, an insight into me, if you like.

You can tell a lot by the type of watch someone wears.

Traditional | Fashion | Designer | Quirky

The only exception to the above for me is sentimental…nothing means more to me than that.

I have my Dad’s gold watch that he received for 30 years loyal service to the company he worked for in the UK – its something I will treasure forever.

Anyway…Today’s post is all about watches of the stylish variety, you know the ones that pack a punch.

The stylish good-lookers.

The Wooden Watch Edit

When I think of fashion watches, I liken them to sunnies.

They need to be edgy, a bit of a conversation starter.

They also need to reflect you and your personality.

I find when I’m at work, especially behind the counter at Country Road, my hands and wrists, get full-on attention – can you imagine trying to hide your hands at the counter – difficult as hell 😉

Customers are always asking me where I get my nails done (thanks Jilly Leach for being my nail PA), they also ask me about my wedding ring – which I love – I know, I’m such a sook.

And of course, my watch.

These days, I’m alternating between my beloved Michael Kors and this watch from Jord.

The Wooden Watch Edit

Sydney Wooden Watch by Jord $199.00

I’ve coveted a wooden watch for a while now.

So can you imagine my excitement, when the lovely folk at Jord sent me such a fabulous piece? – I know, I jumped for joy.

Yes, it’s very ME.

It’s also called Sydney – which I kinda like – cool name eh?

It’s made from Maple and Rose Gold with Swarvoski crystals surrounding the face – for an extra touch of girly gorgeousness.

I guess it goes without saying, I adore the design, it’s feminine and stylish. But I also love that its super-lightweight to wear – my wrist doesn’t feel weighed down in the slightest by the wood. In fact, the watch is as light as a feather!

Products my hands and wrists can live without.

  • Soft moisturised hands – this Aesop one works a treat to combat winter dryness.
  • Manicured nails – shellac is the only thing that works for me – retail is super-tough on your hands and nails.
  • A statement watch.
  • Additional bracelets to match your outfit.
  • Spritz of my signature scent.

A little TLC goes along way when it comes to your hands. Especially now winter is upon us.

So I’ve set myself a little challenge, to apply hand-cream religiously, for the month of June!

Because it’s the little things that people notice, that often leave a lasting impression….don’t you agree?

Are you religious with hand-cream? Could you see yourself wearing a wooden watch? 

What kind of watch do you wear? Is your’s sentimental or fashion forward?

  • Lisa I feel naked without a watch too! If I’ve left for work in a rush, my day will be ruined if I’m not wearing my watch. I just love the feel of having a watch on – I think that’s why I love bracelets so much too.
    Both of your watches sound fabulous. The square face tortoise sounds the bees knees. Your girl knows you well, buying you an orange watch eh? Perfect colour for your gorgeousness! xx Mwah

  • Kathryn

    Must follow your lead with the hand cream. I forget all the time, except for before bed – when I slather it on my hands and feet. I wear a gold watch to work, it cost a lot back in the day when I got it for a gift (from an ex) but other than that, I just don’t wear watches. Mine is waterproof (or water resistant) and withstands the thrashing it gets at work, multiple hand washing etc. I used to get gel nails, but found the time I spent sitting in the salon just sent me crazy, I’m not good at sitting in one place haha I get twitchy!

    • Kathryn you’ve made me giggle. I loathe getting my nails done (I’m a fidget-er too) but I just adore the results…and the fact that my lazy-ass doesn’t have to bother getting nails for 3 weeks! 😉
      Like you I also have a gold watch that cost a small fortune, but it needs the gold re-doing on the face where I’ve bashed it around – I still adore it though so its fallen in to the sentimental basket.
      Keep up the good work with the evening slather of hand cream – it will work its magic overnight for sure! xx
