JORD Wood Watch Review


Tuesday, June 30, 2015

 After what feels like forever, I can finally blog about this unique one..

When the beautiful people from JORD sent me an email and asked if I would like to review one of their watches, I got all giddy and excited! I love having a watch with me everyday and I honestly feel naked without it. You know working as full time in the office, and keeping a blog on the side, I just have to have a watch to keep me organized because time is crucial.
  Jord ships worldwide and their watches are incredibly beautiful, functional, and sustainable. The name itself "Jord" is a swedish word which means earth, soil, land, or ground. It makes perfect sense since their watches are handcrafted from different Trees like Maple, Bamboo, Teak, etc.


It came in a carved wooden box.
 I opted for the Ely Series (maple) $129, just a really simple maple wood watch with an addition date display. I find this watch very elegant and surprisingly light. I was expecting it to be a bit heavy at first, so I was very delighted to know that this was actually super lightweight.
"Ely is the complement to our Fieldcrest series, produced using a slightly smaller dial and band, with the addition of a date display. The simplicity of this design accentuates the intricacy of the wood grain. The Ely is understated and effortless."
It has this cute little wooden carved pendant thingy attached to the watch.

I like that they've included a 12-month warranty too, so if anything happened to the watch you can always reach out to them and have it fixed. (DIY Marble Plate)
Love the idea of wood carving details at the back of the watch.
The watch felt a bit snugly on my wrist, but comfortable. 
Jord made me measure my own wrist using their printable wrist ruler so they had it sized for me perfectly before they send it out. I'm glad they actually include the links so I can always adjust it to my liking.
 I love my watch and I've been wearing this eversince I got this. I've got loads of compliments whenever people see this, and I always tell them that it's made of Maple wood.. just a really good conversation piece.
I've finally found the perfect watch for my office clothes, and it's crazy how it matches my every clothes perfectly!
