I’m so excited to have partnered with JORD Wood Watches to test drive and review one of their men’s watches. There’s an opportunity for you to save on your very own JORD watch so keep reading to see how you can do so!
I was approached by the crew at JORD Wood Watches and although I wasn’t familiar with the brand, I was intrigued by wood watches and was curious to see what they were about. Yes, I knew wood watches were out there in the market, but I would have never thought to look into them, let alone purchase one for everyday wear. I kept an open mind and I’m really glad that I took this opportunity.
First, can we take a moment to talk about packaging? How precious is it?! The box is fittingly made of wood that houses the watch hugging a straw pillow. It also comes with little flyers describing the watch as well as instructions. There’s also a little latch at the bottom that reveals a small drawer to store extra link pieces or even any other accessories such as a tie bar and cufflinks. Usually, a watch box gets discarded or stored away, but this one demonstrates further usage and will definitely sit on the dresser.
JORD sent me a beautiful dark sandalwood & smoke watch from the Frankie Series that has a classic and timeless look. This cool watch is truly one of a kind. I love how simple and minimalist it is, and adore that dark wood finishing. It’s perfect for the sophisticated man and has clean finishings from the JORD engraving on the side of the face and the copper detailing on the face of the watch. The workmanship is stunning, resulting in a very lightweight and slim watch.
Now, I know many of you are wondering, is this watch waterproof? It can withstand splashes, so you can think of it as a splash-proof watch, so you can continue onwards with errands around the house or a gym session. However, it is highly not recommended to fully submerge the watch in water to maintain the integrity of the movement and the wood itself. So if you’re planning on doing your Michael Phelps laps in the swimming pool, I suggest your take it off.
As stated on their website: “Excessive moisture exposure can result in a diminished flexibility in the bands wood links. If this occurs, allow the watch to dry for 1 to 2 days to allow the wood links to dry and return to their natural size.”
With the holidays quickly approaching, a Frankie Series watch would be an absolutely beautiful gift to give to your SO, brother, father, father-in-law, and even a friend. This unique watch is the simplest design among the other JORD Wood Watches, so hop onto their website to discover more intricate and statement pieces.
The Frankie Series is handcrafted from 100% natural Zebrawood, and a scratch-proof “blue film” glass sits on the face. JORD Wood Watches are created from untreated wood with the exception of the clasp, which is stainless steel. They pride themselves in delivering a quality product with an exceptional design. The watch can be adjusted to your wrist size upon order, and the company offers a 12-month warranty.
Ladies, don’t fret! There are women’s watches for you too! They look very similar to the men’s watches, but the faces a smaller and some styles are daintier. I’m absolutely in love with the elegant Frankie Zebrawood & Champagne watch, but definitely check out the rest of the women’s line here.
