I don’t remember a time (no pun intended) where I didn’t wear a watch. I think the obsession began somewhere in my pre-teen years and it’s just continued ever since. I wear a watch daily and feel completely lost without one. So when JORD reached out to me and asked me if I would be interested in trying one of their watches, I was thrilled!
JORD specializes in wood watches. I had no idea there was even such a thing before they reached out to me but they are BEAUTIFUL! It was able to choose from a couple different watches, which ended up being very difficult as I wanted one in every color and style. I especially was drawn to the larger watches like the Sully, but I ended up choosing the “Ely” in Cherry. I loved the color and the fact that it had a date display.
Shipping was extremely fast! Even with having them size it, the watch came in less than a week. And it came in the most beautiful wood box. It was funny because my husband came home and saw the box which has a “J” on it, and he immediately asked what I had gotten him (his name is Jeff in case you’re new around here).
He was very disappointed when he learned it was something for me, not him. He was even more jealous when he saw the watch. He isn’t the biggest watch-wearer himself, but he really liked that it’s wood. He’s commented several times over the last few weeks how much he liked it — he really wants one for himself now (and I think the dog does too)!
The other great thing about JORD watches is how light they are. Since they are made of wood and not metal like most watches, it feels like I don’t have anything on my wrist when I wear my Ely watch. And it goes with so much! I’ve been truly surprised how easy it is to wear with jeans and t-shirts but also dress it up for work or a night out.
And I’ve received SO many compliments on it! It’s quickly become a staple accessory for me. I’ve already got a wish list started and will be asking for one of the lighter wood styles, like the Sidney or Fieldcrest, for my birthday!
Are you a watch wearer? If you could choose from any of the JORD watches, which one would it be?
