07 Sep Jord Watch | Dark Sandalwood and Red Carbon
Every man should have at least one good watch in his life.
Even the most simple of outfits – a basic tee, jeans and boots – can be lifted and finished off perfectly with the right kind of watch.
Aged in the open air and sealed with natural oil extracts, the brand uses a range of wood types (ebony, koa, purpleheart, zebrawood, rosewood, sandalwood, maple and bamboo) to create their watch straps; and sapphire glass for the face.
My watch has been handcrafted with dark sandalwood and has a contrasting red carbon face. Also available in black, green, white and blue carbon, the Delmar face brings a contemporary twist to a classic shape.
Although the watch looks chunky, it’s surprisingly light and doesn’t weigh my wrist down. In these pictures, I’ve stacked the watch with different bracelets to add a little bit more movement to the overall look.
The natural dark sandalwood is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils.
