Newport Wetlands - Jord Fieldcrest Maple Watch


Dress: Fat Face - Jumper: Fat Face: Watch: c/o Jord - Boots: Spartoo




Jord focus on creating timepieces that are modelled after a modern lifestyle. They value sustainability and efficiency and make their watches for people who don't just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go. This ethos prompted me to get up and go and explore my local area, connect with the outdoors and make the most of my day off instead of staying in and watching junk TV.

I headed to the RSBP Wetlands in Newport and I think my watch blended in with the surroundings beautifully. Cetti's warblers and bearded tits can be seen and heard in the reedbeds, and ducks, geese and swans visit the reserve in large numbers during the winter. There are spectacular views of the Severn estuary all year round.

I love the understated design of my watch and this looks great with a casual outfit or can be a focal point with a simple and modern outfit. The watch I'm wearing is the Jord Fieldcrest made from a soft coloured Maple. It's surprising light for a watch that is made from wood and makes a real statement, I've had lots of compliments whenever I wear it as it's so unusual and unique. It also makes a beautiful alternative to the severe black band of the Daniel Wellington watch I wear on most days or my more dainty watches. I like the idea that all the watches are unique and the grain of the wood will be slightly different on each watch.

  1. I have the same model of Jord Watch. People can't believe its made of wood. Although it's chunky its still smart.

  2. I've seen so many of these wooden watches about and have to say I wasn't a fan but yours is so beautiful. Even though it's made out of wood it still looks dainty and very girly!
