JORD Wooden Watch Review

Provided for review

Hey lovelies,

Recently I was contacted by US Company JORD, who make beautiful and unique wooden watches, to ask if I'd like to try out a watch for review. Although I love the look of watches (and of course the function!), I've never found a style I was truly happy with - metal watches feel too weighty, leather seems to rub too much, while chunky plastic just isn't my thing. So I've not been a regular watch wearer in a very long time. This watch, however may change things!

Carved from wood, JORD watches are described as 'true pieces of art', with the grain of the wood making each a one of a kind creation. I chose the Fieldcrest ($120USD) in dark sandalwood, a moody, unisex style which is very lightweight and comfortable to wear, despite being a larger style than I would usually gravitate towards. JORD offer a sizing option on their site with clear instructions, so it was easy to get the right fit, but it's possible to order further links if required. The watch is very well made, and the joints are all polished smooth so there's no pinching of your skin between the links - don't you hate when watches do that? I've been nipped by metal watches in the past.

When the watch arrived, about a week after receiving a shipping notification, it was beautifully packaged and arrived safe and sound. I'm not the only one who has been enamoured by the Fieldcrest - my husband has pretty much claimed it for himself and I had to wrestle it off him to take some pictures! :D 

So far it's held up to being worn daily very well and hasn't needed a clean yet, but as wood is naturally a porous material, it will need polishing over time. JORD say you should condition it with beeswax, butcher block oil or walnut oil to help protect it - as with wooden furniture, if taken care of, it should last a long time.

If the Fieldcrest style isn't your thing, JORD have plenty of other pieces on their website with the option to filter by style or wood. Most of the watch models are available in different woods and some are accented with metal or splashes of colour, so there's something to fit almost every taste. With prices starting at $120USD, I think a JORD watch would be a wonderful and unique gift for a loved one.
