Jord Wood Watches
Looking for the perfect Christmas gift for your mum, dad, sister, brother, niece, nephew or your friends? Well, I have a solution for you! For those precious people in your life these watches are the perfect gift. You may say well it’s just another watch, what is so different about them? Firstly JORD watches are made from wood which is totally unique. Secondly no two time pieces will be exactly the same. Finally a gift which will be timeless, pardon the pun and stand out from the rest.
When I was contacted by JORD, I had a good browse on their website to look at all their watches. I didn’t want to just say yes because it was a free watch, I wanted to do my research and see if they were to my taste. So after a few minutes of browsing and admiring all the watches I knew that I would want one. What made me want them even more was the fact they were so unique having been made from wood. I have never owned a watch like this before, so I was happy to reply back to Nick straight away to let him know that my answer was yes!
Now when it came to picking the watch it was no easy task. You will definitely have a tough time picking just one watch like I did as JORD has so many gorgeous watches. After much contemplation I opted for the Reece Walnut and Navy piece. I wanted a rectangular face watch similar to the one I currently own. Speaking of which I have had this watch for a number of years now, I wear it on a daily basis. So I though It was about time that I gave it a break, so this could not have come at a right time for me. I know for sure that I will be wearing this JORD watch on repeat. I am into unique, pretty, durable and versatile watches that can be worn with pretty much anything in my wardrobe.
JORD is run by artists, designers, marketers, and minders. This is what they say about themselves, “We are focused on creating timepieces that are modelled after a modern lifestyle. We value sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living. We make our watches for people who don’t just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go“. Take a look at their website which has a variety of watches for men and women.
Shipping & Delivery
The good news people is that they ship to every destination, free of charge (this would take 2 – 4 weeks, but you could pay for expedited shipping if you want it sooner!) And in my case, shipping took about three weeks to arrive from the United States. But there was a custom tax of £13.30 to pay before it could be released. So while this doesn’t happen all the time, goods coming into the UK from the US are sometimes taxed.
I waited with much anticipation for my new watch. I can tell you that I was not disappointed at the very least. The packaging is just beautiful, it comes in this gorgeous sturdy wooden box which has a little compartment at the bottom to put your extra links in. I couldn’t wait to open it, I was very much excited! Let me tell you, I was so impressed when I opened the box. It also comes with a cleaning cloth and wood polisher which helps in polishing the JORD watch.
Reece Walnut and Navy Watch
This is what they had to say about the watch, “You know that simple is far from typical. When choosing a watch for your rotation you expect uniqueness and utility. Find both in this timepiece featuring a classic rectangular profile with natural wood surrounding a muted metallic face. Straight edge angles and a streamlined band form a timepiece worthy of daily wear. Choose a watch that represents you, choose the Reece Walnut & Navy.”
The JORD Reece Walnut and Navy watch features a sapphire crystal glass and a deployment buckle with push buttons. The thickness of the band is 20mm and the natural walnut is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils. The Reece is splash-proof but should not be submerged in water (3 ATM). Another convenient feature is that the display breaks down into hours, minutes and seconds. If you want to go all out, JORD can customise the watch and the box for you! What a stunning Christmas gift, who wouldn’t be ecstatic to receive this as a gift!?
JORD offers engraving on the backplate of the watch for the amount of $35. They can also get the box engraved for you should you choose to do so for the amount of $45. Whilst I received my sizing complementary, If you wanted to get your watched sized then this can be done for the amount of $10. Or alternatively take it to your local jewellers who maybe able to do it for less.
Now for the sizing of the watch, JORD very thoughtfully sent through a true to scale tape measure for me and they also have this on their website which you can easily print off, and wrap around your wrist to get the ideal size. This was very straight forward and simple, I say that but I somehow managed to type the wrong numbers the first time. So I sent through my true size the second time.
Firstly I have to say how much I adore the fact that it is made of wood! Just so unique and edgy, for something that is made of wood, it’s not heavy on the wrist at all. It is very light weight and fits my purpose of being able to wear it every day with most casual items of clothing. You can find a variety of JORD women’s watches here and men’s here.
It is splash proof, so I don’t have to take it off when doing dishes. Since it’s not fully water proof, I wouldn’t wear it to have a shower or go swimming with it like most watches!
In a nutshell, I love the watch. I love that it’s unique. I love that each watch can be personalised, either at the back of the watch or on the wooden box. And I particularly love this one I picked and the way it blends against my skin.
