Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post, but I did receive product in exchange for a blog review. As always, my opinions are my own and I promise to be honest in my thoughts.
Alright, friends. It’s about time I got this review posted! Get it? About TIME. Today I’m talking about the JORD wood watch I received to enjoy and review for all of you.
First, a little background about the company. JORD means “earth, soil or land” in Swedish and that’s exactly what their stylish watches reflect….their deep appreciation for natural elements, namely wood. Their tagline (which I happen to love) is that their watches “tell more than time”. When JORD contacted me, it was like they read my mind. I’ve been in need of a new watch, as I had been wearing the Garmin VivoFit as my only timepiece for the past 8 months or so. Most of the time it’s great, but sometimes it’s a little too “sporty” for the setting.
Right out of the gate one of my favorite things about this company was the ease of which I was able to order my watch. I chose the Ely Series in Black because I love the combo of brown and black and figured it would pair well with a lot of my current jewelry and clothing pieces. One thing I hate about buying most jewelry online is that you won’t know how it fits until it arrives. And in the case of watches, you usually have to then bring it to a jeweler to have it sized properly. Not the case with JORD! For an additional $10 (well worth it in my mind, to avoid an extra trip to the jeweler), you can use their handy PDF measuring tool to help you measure your wrist and choose the right size for your watch. Sweet, right?!
The watch came in a wooden box, wrapped around an adorable herringbone pillow (see first photo above) and I loved it immediately. It’s lightweight, the face isn’t too big for my liking and it fit perfectly, thanks to that handy measuring tool.
The clasp is a push button, so it’s very easy to get on and off, but it doesn’t just come undone like some other watches. The face is scratch-resistant and the watch is splash-proof, but not water-resistant or waterproof. I’ve been wearing my watch for several weeks now and have had no issues with water damage, from splashing or otherwise.
My favorite part of the watch is the styling. It goes perfectly with my recent switch to a more boho-inspired waredrobe, and like I said earlier, matches both brown and black. I love how unique the wood design is and I receive countless compliments every time I’m wearing it!
I’d be remiss to not mention price point, which is $129 for this particular watch and very reasonable in my opinion. There are definitely more expensive styles in their collection, like this Cora Series watch in turquoise, which I loooove.
So, all in all I’m a big fan of the JORD watch and would recommend it to anyone looking for a unique, stylish timepiece to accessorize with. There are so many different colors and sizes to choose from, check out #jordwatch to see how other people are wearing theirs!
Your turn…Would you wear a wood watch? Which style is up your alley? How much do you love that turquoise one?!
