I like contrasts: conservative with a twist, costume jewellery with genuine pieces and big watches with lots of bracelets. I am all about big watches – nothing dainty and delicate for me. So, when Jord Watches contacted me about their latest models, I was keen to try out a watch from their men’s range.
Behold, the Delmar:
I love the autumnal colours of the wood and the purple background and especially the mustard yellow second hand. The silver hour and minute hands allow me to match the Delmar with my favourite silver bracelets. And because the watch is made from wood, it is so incredibly light, despite its size.
It is a big watch but I love that about it. I much prefer seeing the hands clearly at first glance than peering at the face of a watch to tell the time – especially when I was at the airport waiting for my flight back from London. If you saw on Instagram, I am a little paranoid about getting there on time, so not having to dive into my bag and check my phone the whole time really helps.
It even matches perfectly with my leopard print handbag – big, chunky men’s watch with a feminine bag. See, I told you that I loved contrasts.
