I first came across JORD watches last year when a friend reviewed one. The watch looked good and the review was good but I was in two minds about the idea of a wooden watch. But as I wasn’t planning on buying one I didn’t think much more about it.
Until recently when I was offered the chance to review one. Curiosity got the better of me so I agreed.
Although I usually tend to be quite plain when it comes to watches and stick with black/silver, I fell in love with a watch in the Cora series: Purpleheart & Mother of Pearl, which retails at $275.
Savoring something, however small, is why your style will always be revered, and rarely replicated. You’ll love how the Purpleheart wood pairs with opaline Mother of Pearl to showcase the luxe nature of natural materials. Crafted to be adored, our Cora was created for you.
First impressions always matter to me. And the Jord Watch did not fail to impress. It arrived in it’s own stylish wooden box and immediately made an impact.
With a wooden watch I was assuming it would be heavy on the wrist but I couldn’t have been more wrong. It was amazingly light weight and the best thing is you send your measurements to Jord so you can have a perfect fit. You simply print out a wrist guide from their site and measure your wrist.
As it is so lightweight, it is perfect to wear during the summer and I can see this being one of my most worn accessories for days out, barbecues and general walks and meet ups with friends.
Family and friends have already complimented the watch and I can see it attracting more attention as I wear it out more on our regular trips to the park in the summer holidays!
What is different about these watches is that they do not take a battery but use a wind up mechanism. Once wound up, daily activity should be sufficient to keep them going but must be worn around 8 hours a day. Lack of activity will mean you will need to wind your watch up again. But how amazing does the mechanism look?
I am simply in love with these watches!
The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.
