Telling time shouldn’t be boring! Don’t you agree? And now it doesn’t have to be! Our reviewer Michelle received a Jord Watch free of charge to facilitate this review. Regardless, all opinions are unbiased.
Watches are generally not a the focus of a conversation. They are usually just something that you have on your wrist to make sure you are not late somewhere. They are more about function than fashion; about sensibility than style. Until now. You see up until a few months ago, I thought watches were just watches. But then I saw something new, different, and really cool. What was it you ask….why Jord Wooden Watches of course. Excited about this totally awesome way to make a fashion statement, I showed these watches to my husband and we both agreed that he NEEDED to have one.
After looking through the many different designs of Jord Wood Watches, we decided that the Delmar White wood watch was the perfect fit. We loved the almost cherry wood color of the band because it brings out the white of the face of the watch, causing it to be a fashion statement that really pops! But this watch is not just your plain old wood. In fact, JORD took all sorts of different grains of woods from around the world and put in a watch in upscale way, creating a statement that is rustic, refined and absolutely right for the modern man. I have to say that each and every watch is literally art for the arm.
And more than just the look of the watch can be made into the perfect fit. You see, the watch band was a little big for my hubby so we had a jeweler take out a link or two. It was no different than a regular watch and there were no problems with changing out the links. Since that point on the only time he has taken off the watch was to take the pictures for this post (can you tell he really loves it?).
From the design to the face to the clasp, this watch is very well made and is a great talking piece for my hubby. A lot of people are asking him where he got the watch and had to touch it to believe that it was a totally wood watch. JORD takes pride in their craftsmanship and it shows in the quality. And that equals a timepiece that anyone would be proud to wear!
Now that you know why these watches are unique and distinct, do you want to know what inspired them? Of course you do and it’s actually quite simple. JORD wanted people to feel closer to nature! In fact JORD is Swedish for earth, soil, land. So the best way to do that was to get away from rubber and metal and go wood. They wanted it to be distinctive and different. And they have definitely achieved that!
“Our style is guided by a deep appreciation for natural elements and modern design. Wood is not just a component of our watches, it is the main feature. The intricacy and multiplicity of the woods we utilize in our designs insure that each watch is as distinctive as the owner.”
Overall, I could not have been more impressed with this beautiful timepiece. These watches are surprisingly light weight and beautifully done. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I can’t think of a better gift than an beautiful watch that is a work of art. Whether for the hard to shop for man, the refined man or the man who loves to make a statement, make sure you spell love J-O-R-D!
