3 things about me:
- I love watches.
- I wear them for fashion purposes only.
- I don’t discriminate. It doesn’t matter who it’s intended for, male or female, if I like it, I’m wearing it!
So you can imagine how overjoyed I am to have the opportunity to partner with JORD Wood Watches as a part of my month long, yes I said “MONTH long,” birthday celebration. I like celebrating and I’m not ashamed of it, so that judgment, you can keep it!
I was so excited to receive my watch that I couldn’t even wait to get home and open it, I opened it in the car. I know, pressed! But let me just tell you, the unveiling of my custom handmade watch was an experience within itself.
The watch box is HUGE! It’s made of all wood and has two compartments. The first one is on top where the actual watch is stored along with a watch pillow to keep it safe during shipping. And then there’s a dope little drawer that slides out to store the additional watch links. I plan on storing all of my watches in the box, it’s just that big!
Now about the watch, I choose Koa & Ash from the Frankie series. I have been looking for an everyday watch, so when I saw this one, I thought, “well, show out Jesus!” It was just what I was looking for, simple with personality, just like me! I personally like the contracts between the Koa wood and the Ash face. I knew that I could dress it up or down to get maximum wear out of it. And the fact that it matches my Damier Ebene Neverfull, yup, sign me up!
I’m really not concerned about the Swiss Ronda Normtech Caliber 763 movement of the watch because again, it never has to tick again, and I’ll totally be fine with that. But if you are into watches for functional purpose then there you go.
Now the sapphire glass, I’m here for! And because I’m also here to keep the people informed, here’s your material science lesson for today. Sapphire glass is known in the luxury watch world as the definitive material for transparency and durability. Sapphire is a synthetic crystal (aluminum oxide Al2O3) rather than actual glass. It is colorless and optically clear. Mechanically, it is second only to diamond as the hardest and most scratch-resistant materials on earth. I plan on wearing Frankie daily, so yeah, Imma need that luxury sapphire!
