EN: Have you heard of watches made of wood? I have not till some time ago when I was asked to review one of the JORD wood watches. I was quite intrigued and when I saw their collections I was pretty astonished!

I mean, the whole idea of handcrafting unique watches of different types of wood is something special, isn’t it? But the idea would be nothing without the great ability of turning it into the real unusual product of breathtaking quality and aesthetics. The JORD wood watches are just so beautiful that you will find yourself admiring and desiring them scrolling through their site. Whether you are a man or a woman and whether you prefer sporty, trendy, extravagant, natural or minimal style, you will definitely find a JORD watch that catches your attention.

I have chosen this Zebrawood & Turquoise watch from Cora series. I am impressed by the combination of warm color of the wood and the pop of the cold turquoise. I have never thought of mixing those colors like that, so I was immediately inspired to do the same with my outfit, as you can see bellow. By the way, the watch goes perfectly with those rustic bracelets I made of the FIMO polymer clay and foil.

What I also find pretty amazing is that you can see the movement through the dial. It’s like a window to the mysterious mechanism of measuring the time. I must confess that I am a bit obsessed with the phenomenon of time. From a while ago I got used to wear a watch and now I can hardly go out without it. I feel like if I am more aware of time passing, I will use it better, do more things faster, be more productive etc. Well, you surely know what I mean.

But, I have noticed that this wood watch has some kind of a power to tame the time, if you can say it like that. As if it sends us a message through its natural material and time and devotion invested in the slow process of high quality production. We can not ignore time and we should find the best way to cope with it, to be punctual, but also, we must not forget that the chase with the time leave us with nothing but the chase itself. I love this watch on my hand, not just for its beauty and quality, but also because when I look the time it reminds me that we should slow down, feel what is going on, reconnect with the nature and people around us. It reminds me that we should invest time so we can achieve something timeless.  And I think that is a huge and important message for today’s world.

PS. The watch comes in a beautiful wooden box. The watch is really lightweight on the hand and the length of the bracelet is adjustable. You can find more info about this particular watch here. The price range of the JORD wood watches is from about $130 to $300. If you want to treat yourself or someone you love with a luxurious, handmade, high quality, unique and eye-catching  watch, JORD wood watches might be the perfect choice for you. Also, get prepared to receive a lot of questions whether that is a real wood watch followed by enthusiastic compliments and admiration. But, that isn’t hard, right?

SR: Da li ste čuli da postoje drveni satovi? Ja nisam do pre nekog vremena kad sam dobila ponudu da na blogu predstavim JORD drvene satove. Bila sam zaintrigirana, a kada sam pogledala njihove kolekcije i veoma zadivljena!

Sama ideja pravljenja unikatnih ručnih satova od različitih vrsta drveta je nešto specijalno, zar ne? No, ideja sama po sebi ne bi bila ništa da se nije ostvarila u neobičnom proizvodu čiji kvalitet i estetika oduzimaju dah. JORD drveni satovi su toliko lepi da ćete uhvatiti sebe kako im se divite i žudite za njima, skrolujući po njihovom sajtu.  I  muškarci i žene, bilo poklonici sportskog, ekstravagantnog, prirodnog, trendi ili minimalističkog stila, sigurno ćete naći neki  JORD sat koji privlači vašu pažnju.

Ja sam izabrala ovaj Zebrawood & Turquoise sat iz Cora serije. Zadivila me je kombinacija toplog drveta i jarke tirkizne boje. Nikad se ne bih setila da tako uklopim te boje i odmah sam bila inspirisana, da to isprobam i sa svojiom odećom, kao što vidite. Sat se takođe odlično uklopio uz rustične narukvice koje sam napravila od FIMO plastelina i aluminijumske folije.

Ono što mi je takođe fascinanto je što se kroz tablu sata vidi unutrašnjost sata. To je kao prozor u misteriozni mehanizam merenja vremena. Moram da priznam da sam opsednuta fenomenom vremena. Od skoro sam se toliko navikla da nosim sat da ne mogu da izađem iz kuće bez njega. Nekako mislim da ako sam svesnija protoka vremena, bolje  i korisnije ću ga iskoristiti, biću produktivnija, uradiću više stvari za kraće vreme i slično. Sigurno znate o čemu  pričam…

Međutim, primetila sam da ovaj drveni sat ima moć da na neki način ukroti vreme. Kao da nam preko svog prirodnog materijala, vremena i posvećenosti uloženih u spor i kvalitetan proces ručne izrade, šalje određenu poruku. Naravno da ne možemo da ignorišemo vreme i da treba da nađemo načina da se nosimo sa njim, da budemo tačni i precizni, ali ne smemo da zaboravimo da nam od trke sa vremenom na kraju ostaje samo trka. Volim ovaj sat na mojoj ruci, ali ne samo zbog njegove lepote i kvaliteta, nego i što me svaki put podseti da treba da usporimo malo, da osetimo ono sto se dešava u tom momentu, da se ponovo povežemo sa prirodom i ljudima oko nas. Podseti me da treba da uložimo vreme da bismo dobili nesto vanvremensko. A to je velika poruka u današnjem svetu.

PS. Sat je upakovan u prelepu drvenu kutiju. Jako je lagan i prijatan na ruci, a njegova narukvica je podesive dužine. Više informacija o ovom modelu pogledajte ovde. Što se tiče cena, JORD drveni satovi koštaju između oko $130 do $300. Ako možete i želite sebe ili nekog dragog da počastite luksuznim, unikatnim, ručno radjenim, kvalitetnim i upečatljivim satom, ovi JORD drveni satovi su onda možda prava stvar za vas. Takođe, pripremite se i za mnogo pitanja u vezi sa tim da li je to stvarno drveni sat i za još više oduševljenih komentara i komplimenata. Ali to nije težak deo, zar ne?
