Keeping Up The Good Vibes

[Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I received the product for a review purpose, but the opinions are my own based on my experience.]

Uh oh! What's up, bumblebees? Welcoming my first #OOTD post featuring this coolest timepiece ever. So, have you heard the trend of wooden watches? As a person who wears a watch in daily basis, I was super excited the moment I knew I'm gonna get to wear this watch. The shipping only took about 15 days from their headquarter in Missouri to Jakarta! They packaged it safely with all the bubble wrap and sealed the crystal face of the watch with transparent sticker to make sure no scratches happen during the shipping.


Talk about details! This timepiece surely delivers its elegance by the wooden packaging and comprehensiveness. It includes the brief manual, the warranty card, and a cleaning cloth. Not to mention the leftover wooden links because they have my watch sized before it's sent out to me. The procedure was simple. All I had to do was to print their ruler, cut it, then size it on my wrist, voilĂ  it's done!

FINISH & CARE

The natural purpleheart wood is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils. The Cora is splash-proof but should not be submerged in water (3 ATM). Lemon or orange oil extract is best for cleaning the natural wood. When storing this timepiece, avoid extremely hot, cold, and excessively dry/humid environments.

COLOR & APPEARANCE

Purpleheart wood is sourced from the Solomon Islands. The wood has a naturally rich purple color. The grain pattern is generally fine and has very straight lines. Although difficult to cut at high speeds, when worked correctly, a beautiful and long lasting finish is created.

FYI, Cora is the only timepiece that uses purpleheart wood, not to mention the screw down crown are built for the automatic pieces only. You might have seen me wearing this watch on my Instagram or if you have seen me in person, maybe? :P

Loving this combination of arm candy.

Another thing that I like from this timepiece is that the deployment buckle or also known as butterfly clasp, it just completes the aesthetic aspect of this watch. The watch is lightweight with smooth finishing and comfortable to wear in Jakarta's hot weather all day long. Oh, I actually have this story, it happened on the first time I received the packaging, I was confused btw how to set the time with the screw down crown so I had to ask their representative via their chic website and by seconds, he solved my trouble, the instruction was very clear and therefore, I encourage you to ask them if you find any issue with your watch. What's even better is that Jord's extra mile service, it offers a free shipping worldwide! Mine was sent by the USPS's first class air mail (no wonder the fast delivery).

I've always worn my watch on my left hand and let my right hand free of accessories.

Maybe if I have a few other things to share is about the maintenance of automatic watch, here is the video that might help you to understand better. Let me know which Jord watch do you feel to own! They definitely have plenty of collection for both men and women ;)

    1. Thank you dear! Couldn't agree more with your thoughts on the watch. I bought the culotte pants from @meronartw on Instagram. Do check them out, they just recently launched a new collection :)
