Unboxing

Just opened and it smells lovely! Bubbles on the face are from the protector film 🙂

The watch came packaged and already adjusted for my wrist size. My 15cm circumference wrist was an exact match for the watch resized 5 sections down. It is a unisex model, but I think it’s far better for men with a wrist circumference of at least 15.5cm. My bf tried this (his wrist is a fraction bigger than mine) and he also said the watch face was huge.

I really love the box design, with a magnetic close lid, tray, and vent in below the watch cushion. Because it’s all wood, there was a wonderfully refreshing scent when I unpackaged the parcel. JORD really put a lot of thought into the branding and the experience that goes with their wood watches, kudos!

The wooden box of course comes in another black finish hare board casing which also held a twisty brush tube of preservation oil and rubbing cloth for the wood. Forgot to take a photo of this earlier so here’s a so-so image just so you know what it looks like haha

If there’s one bone to pick about the parcel, it would be with the polyethylene padding abone the watch in the wooden box – a paper based eco-friendly padding would be more suitable imo

The watch is true to the color shown on their website. I absolutely love the muted smoky grey watch face with the subtly rose tinted gold watch hands and markers.

I’m surprised that the watch back includes the craft date of the watch! Nice touch of individuality there

The watch comes with a thread tag, protector film on the face, and plastic tag below the crown to prevent the watch running

Through taking photos on my slightly sandy tiles, the band became visibly scratched. I should probably oil it with the oil that came with the watch, but I’ll wait for the watch to become a little more worn first – I’d like to see how it looks with the natural wear.

Close up of scratch

The color works well with my Asian skin tone. In fact, it makes the dial appear more rosy than it does in the box!

As I mentioned earlier, the dial is quite large. The item description says the case is 45mm wide, I guess with the additional lug width, it’s the same overall width as my wrist (50mm). There is a Frankie 35 series more suitable for petite wrists… I should probably have taken a look at the measurements and requested that one instead.

Despite the wood casing, the watch is still pretty light and easy to wear. The strap is wider than the usual (wider than my DW which is the widest of my watches so far) so it took a bit of getting used to. It wasn’t actually an impediment to my movement though.

Day-to-day wear

Below are a few more photos from when I wore it on a small hike. The color seems a little different in each photo because my phone is awful haha
