Wood Watches- Trendy or Classic?
I think it is BOTH. I have turned into a watch shopper over the last eight years. My husband wears a uniform 5-6 days a week, and there is not much outside of regulation he can wear besides a watch! I mean even his hair has to be a certain way, so he has quite the little watch collection growing. Everyone has their thing, and his is watches. It makes it easy to buy gifts, and usually, one size fits all! With almost no other way to feel personalized in the day, I see why he loves watches.
He has wanted a wood watch for a few years now. It seemed to be a trend that hit the watch market, and now a lot of styles are classic and here to stay. With good reason, too! They are STUNNING. This comes from a girl who only wears a watch to track her mileage. I found JORD watch that is on my wish list, but also a watch band to convert my Apple watch! Decisions, Decisions.
Thanks to JORD for reaching out to me to be a part of this month’s blogger team, and I am SO excited to collaborate with them about the watch JORD gifted us in exchange for sharing with you! This post is my own words and opinions though <3
The JORD Wood Watch Brand
JORD is pronounced like Yoda, without the A. haha. So now as your brain tries to switch over to pronouncing that differently as you read- Check a little about them!
They are from the Show-Me State, based in St. Louis! P.S. Missouri I miss you, and hope to one day live there again <3
They have so many beautiful designs but are always developing new designs. The watches are a fantastic mix of natural, and mostly reclaimed materials, combined with quality and stunning designs. From minimal to max fashion they have a design for everyone.
Gifting a wood watch with JORD
My husband has obsessed over JORD watches for a long time. Why we never pulled the trigger sooner? He had too many in the rotation, and I wish I were kidding. When watches sit in boxes for months, it is a problem. So finally a few crappy ones broke, and he finally stopped wearing ones that do not fit him ( and too lazy to get sized). Guess what!!
JORD has a measuring print out you can measure and send them your measurements so you can have a custom fit watch with no need to awkwardly visit a jeweler you didn’t purchase from and/or pay them to resize it!
I went for it and didn’t have him measure because I surprised him with this watch called Frankie, I mean if I were mysteriously asking to see his wrist using a wood watch JORD measuring strip … the surprise wouldn’t be there.
He was SO surprised, and it fits PERFECTLY. No need to size but they insert a little incentive in your box that if you do need to get sized and leave their info with the jeweler- they will send you $$. It is pretty fantastic.
Other great options for gifting:
– Most watch backplates can be engraved! All Cedar humidor presentation boxes are engravable, as well!
– Most watches have additional options for customization — mixing and matching faces and woods!
– Every watch comes with a one year warranty and options for return & exchange
– Free worldwide standard shipping!
About the wood, in the wood watch!
I counted 14 different wood types on their site, and that does not include all the other amazing materials used in handcrafting these fantastic watches.
I picked Frankie:
SUBTLETY & STRENGTH…
Minimalism has never equated to more. Deeply toned sandalwood combines with a solid smoke face to create a subtlety of strength. Your time is your own. Find elegance with ease in the ultra slim case and enjoy the comfort of the straight line strap. The uncomplicated face allows focus, the streamlined shaping offers style. Wear time well with the Frankie Dark Sandalwood & Smoke.
I then realized the backup options I offered to JORD when working on our collaboration – were all Sandalwood watches too. I was drawn to each dramatic style, but this one I knew my husband would love! He did. He didn’t like the other options when I showed him what I had chosen; this truly was what he pictured when he was thinking of his dream wood watch. Sleek, beautiful tones, and just perfect wood. Thanks, JORD for knowing that and sending us his dream watch! <3
