JORD Watch Review and Giveaway
I’ll be the first to admit that I am not much of a jewelry guy. I appreciate it’s craftsmanship and beauty, but I don’t wear it. I really do love jewelry and even designing it. In fact, I went to college for fine jewelry design and making. Like I said, I appreciate it, but I don’t often wear much more than a wedding band. So when JORD, the makers of the wooden watch, approached me about doing a review, I was a bit skeptical. However, the really cool designs are what sealed the deal!
First, a little about JORD. They “live, work, and play” in St. Louis, MO. The guys there wanted to give a “twist” to the ordinary watch. They also wanted to get people back to nature and away from using the metals of today and rubber! The JORD wooden watch was born!
The thing that first struck me about the JORD (other than the cool designs of course) was how light weight the watch is. I mean very light weight. It doesn’t bug me at all having something on my wrist all day like some heavier watches. Besides, who wouldn’t want to wear this very cool and stylish watch!
Next, each one is truly unique because they use diverse wood from all over the world. They combine various colors with different grains of wood to ensure a very unique, one of a kind time piece. Love that each one will be a little different!
The wood on the watches isn’t treated or sealed in any way to keep them natural and chemical free. So they only allergic reactions should be if you are allergic to the wood itself (or stainless steel). Since the wood isn’t treated however you don’t want to submerge the watch in any water or liquids. But as we know accidents do happen! So no worries if you do drop it in the sink or gasp the toilet lol. According to JORD you just let the watch dry for a day or two and the wood should go back to it’s original shape. On their website you can also find directions on how to clean the wood (very simple and easy cleaning method).
The price range of JORD wooden watches are $120 to $249 which isn’t bad for a watch of this caliber. The one pictured above is the Ely in natural green and maple. Check out the JORD website and see all the different designs and colors JORD offers. There is sure to be one that catches your eye!
These watches are definitely unique, stand out and will be a conversation piece. Everyone will want to know where you got it! I get tons of questions every time I wear it. I would say its a must have in everyone’s watch collection. Especially with how affordable they are!
So head over to their website and check them out. Will make a great gift for Mother’s or Father’s Day!
