Wood Watches by Jord

Gift buying for the guys in our lives has come a long way over the past few decades. Our dads, brothers, uncles, and grandfather’s, can only wear so many ties and baseball caps, and besides, it’s so old school, so outdated and those ideas are getting moldy. Men are a lot fussier and pickier about what they wear, so we need to put more thought and consideration into gift selection. It’s time to step up our game and give them gifts they would really appreciate yet are heartfelt, unique and purposeful.

I recently came across an awesome company that makes a very distinct product. Jord creates handcrafted natural and sophisticated wooden watches for men and women. Sustainable fashion is an awesome idea, so eco-chic and couture green. I’ve personally never seen or heard of wooden watches before, so I was intrigued.

Jord watch

*Hardened, Scratch-proof glass face: 26mm x 33mm *Wood frame/bezel: 48mm x 42mm *Bandwidth: 26mm – 37mm transition design (5pc links) *Lug ends: 42mm *Stainless face *Single action clasp *3-hand Citizen Miyota movement with date window *Includes stained bamboo display box

This gorgeous watch, the 94A Series Chocolate, is exquisite and chock full of personality. It trumpets a back-to-nature magnetism! It arrived safely in a sturdy box with an uber-soft pillow for the watch to rest on; opening the box, revealed a stunning watch. Its band has a sleek and polished wood grain finish that presents an edgy manliness to it. It’s really smooth and soft with rounded edges for ultimate comfort. It blends harmoniously with the square dark blue and silver metallic dial; it’s quite handsome. The dial has bolder lines notched every five minutes and has only one number, an enlarged number 9 which looks impressive and trendy.

The watch offers the wearer a scratch-proof glass face, which is ideal; I have a few watches that are scarred from bumps and bangs. There is also a very tiny date window which we found to be difficult to see. It would be great if it was just a little bigger. Despite the watch’s size, it’s incredibly lightweight. It weighs a fraction of what a metal watch this size would weigh.

To resize the watch and remove a link, we had to take it to a jeweler, who I might add, thought the watch was really attractive. The stainless steel clasp is so easy and smooth to open and close, it can be done swiftly with one hand. Although the watch is splashproof, it’s not intended for you to go scuba diving with, land only guys!

Jord offers a wide selection of watches in various wood finish colors and shapes combined with attractive contrasting colors. The result is a captivating watch that can be worn with any attire. It’s perfect for professional events or casual outings, and it will definitely strike up a conversation. They are impeccably made with a lot of attention to detail and workmanship. This watch makes a profound statement and would make a perfect gift for any member of your family.
