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.

Disclosure: I was sent a watch in return for a honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Oh, it is so pretty!
I love that you can get it made to measure too. I never wear watches because I find it hard to get ones with straps that fit me.
You sound like you’re a true convert to wooden watches now. 🙂

The watch looks lovely on you! I love the colour its very unique. I have two watches I always forget to put them on for the day, but you have definitely reminded me. x
I love a good watch. I have two watches but since wearing my fitbit I never wear them.
Such a beautiful watch, and gorgeous photographs. I love the look of the watch. xx
That looks like a lovely watch, such an unusual colour!
How lovely! I’ve never been drawn to wooden watches but the colour is gorgeous! I like how you can get it made to measure too. So convenient! x
What a lovely watch! A wooden band is not something I would have considered – but it looks really nice. Thanks for sharing.
What a beautiful watch! I haven’t worn one for years, but this would definitely tempt me back. Love the exposed mechanism.

A modern take on an old wind up watch, I love it. I’ve not seen a wooden strap before but it looks lovely
That’s so pretty although the potential customs charge would put me off a bit I think x
I love these watches, I’m actually lucky enough to have my own too x
This is so pretty. Have a grand look to it.
Jord watches are so pretty, but mine didn’t hold up to everyday wear. The strap snapped within 3 months of daily wear.
Oh no that is a shame!
My husband loves his Jord watch! This looks lovely
i don’t really wear a watch, but they look fab!
It is a lovely watch – I particularly like the colour.
