Time passes so quickly, it really does. Next month sees Damian and I pass the 13 year mark in our relationship. Just saying that makes me feel old! I can remember, clear as day, being sat in the car driving along Chester Road in Old Trafford and when asking Damian how old he would be on his forthcoming birthday gasping in amazement when he said 25. TWENTY-FIVE! To my 21 year old self, 25 seemed a lifetime away. I mean 25 was the age of a proper adult. Scary stuff.
Now, some 13 years, three houses and three children later, I can’t help but like back to my own 25th birthday – a couple of days before we flew back from our honeymoon. Time really does pass by and it becomes harder and harder to think of gifts to mark the various events. We tend not to do too much for Valentines Day if I am honest, but when Jord wood watches offered me the chance to choose a watch I thought it might be a good gift for Damian. Trying to buy a gift for Damian is near impossible at the best of times so this was an offer I couldn’t refuse.
I selected the Conway in walnut and jet black and when it arrived, WOW, it is stunning and is the perfect gift this Valentines. It really is a beautiful watch.
The shipping from the US is free and the watch is so well packaged when it arrives, something that can be a worry when purchasing high-value goods. It is packaged up in the most beautiful wooden box and this one was engraved on the back, perfect for that special valentines day gift.
The watch itself is wrapped around a lovely little cushion and it is a real wow moment when you take the lid off the box. The watch is simply stunning and, if truth be told, I wish I’d been a bit more selfish and chosen one for me this time. (although Damian if you’re reading I’ll have one from the Cora series…..)
Anyhow, back to Damian’s watch… it is a beauty, made from quality walnut wood and it just feels so lovely. It’s a little lighter to the standard metal watch and has a bright clean face that is really easy to read. It’s impossible to not run the watch through your fingers and along the edge of the watch face.
Damian is suitably happy with his (early) valentines gift and so he should be – it sits beautifully on his wrist. He’s really impressed with how light it feels and how clear the face is – it’s hard to convey in pictures how crisp the watch face is.
