For us, autumn is a season when time suddenly becomes much more pressing in our lives. During the Summer holidays, the days blur into one another. Saturdays and Wednesdays have the same feel and atmosphere, the same activities; the days tumble into one another, indistinguishable. Then, all at once, we are back on a tight schedule – moving to the rhythm of school bells and term dates, parents’ evenings and harvest festivals.
And as a teacher, you always need to know the time. That’s why, when my husband’s watch broke near the end of the summer holidays, and the very next day we were contacted by JORD to review one of their exquisite watches, I knew it was fate.
I chose the Delmar series for my husband, in Dark Sandalwood and Blue Carbon – even the name just sounds so appealing – and I eagerly anticipated its arrival so that I could present it to him as a ‘back to school’ gift.
When the watch first arrived, in its stunning wooden presentation box, we were absolutely thrilled. The watch is beautifully designed and classically stylish. I really think the presentation box adds a real touch of class and luxury if you are thinking of getting anyone a JORD watch as a gift; there is the sense that you are opening something very special – a rare treat. My husband was absolutely delighted with it and put it on right away. I think you’ll agree that it looks just as lovely out of the box and on a wrist –
For day-to-day use, the watch is comfortable and easy to wear; my husband informed me that the wooden texture of the strap, far from being a little more chaffing than a traditional watch, as you might expect, was even more comfortable. It fits his wrist well, and therefore does not move around. He found that it did not become uncomfortable while spending all day being very active in a warm classroom, as he had experienced with leather or metal watches in the past.
Hopefully the beautiful Delmar watch will be making sure my husband gets to those lessons and appointments on time and that he keeps to his parents’ evening schedules, throughout the year.
It may even remind us that time is still passing, on those glorious lazy summer days, for many years to come.
Overall, we couldn’t be more delighted with the watch we chose. The next time I need a watch I will certainly be looking at JORD. The women’s watches are also absolutely breathtaking.
