Jord Wood Watch Review



jord watch Jord Wood Watch Review

Several months ago, a representative of Jord contacted me about doing a review for their wood watches.  My initial reaction was, to be honest, “meh.”  The mere thought of a wooden watch just brought images to mind of heavy, clunky, bulky, rather plain watches. I just set aside the email for review at a later date due to some health matters and didn’t think much of it.

A couple of weeks went by and I was cleaning out my mail box and I found that email and decided to check out the links and I was surprised by the look of the watches, but I was still thinking, “eh, they’ll be clunky, heavy, uncomfortable ….”  However, I decided to give it a shot and wrote the contact at Jord back and agreed to the review.  After all, that is what they wanted, to know what I thought of the watch.  I had nothing to lose.

 

2014 07 01 17.30.33 1024x768 Jord Wood Watch Review
I’m so glad I kept that email.  The watch arrived in a beautiful box, displayed beautifully, created skillfully and masterfully, and was truly a one-of-a-kind timepiece.  It was none of the things I was worried it would be.  It wasn’t heavy or clunky and was actually quite elegant.  I have worn it for weeks now and get compliments on it everywhere I go.  I have been to fashion trade shows and received numerous compliments there, and comments on how well made it is and what a great value it is.

 

You would think that a watch that is hand-crafted of wood would be extremely expensive, but it is reasonably priced and, yet, still very well-made.  It is made from sustainable materials and without chemicals to treat the wood, so it is not a hazard to you or the environment.

 

I asked the makers a few questions and to tell me more about their plans for their watches, such as getting into the retail market and what brought them the idea of working with wood, and this is what they had to say.

 

Currently we do only sell through our website, but in the not too distant future we hope to make somewhat of a retail push. My team members and I grew up kind of following all the trends, wearing what the other kids were wearing. Some of my team members are brothers, their Father has been a watch collector for as long as I can remember, and I received my first watch when I was about 4 year old from my Grandfather. Since then I have always loved watches. So we wanted to collaborate together and come up with something that would break the molds of the other trends and start one of our own. So we came up with a unique watch made of wood. Now we design and sell them online! Our designs honestly just come from what we think will look cool. We love the look of what nature brings, so we obviously use all natural woods for our designs!”

 

Jord has graciously granted us the opportunity to give one reader a $129.00 Gift Code towards the purchase of their own Jord Wood Watch.  Please head over to our giveaway, which is live from 7/12 to 8/3/14, here, to enter to win!  It is open world wide (except where prohibited by law, see giveaway for more details).

  20. I don’t know if I glossed over it or not. Is the watch water resistant? It doesn’t really matter either way, I like it.

    • It is splash resistant. You can’t go snorkeling with it, but if you get it wet washing your hands it isn’t going to hurt it. I went on a water ride the other day – one of those like white water rafting – and it was just fine.

  21. clint odeza (@wudstock08) says:

    I like the look of the Jord Wood Watch. It’s different, unique.

  76. These watches look very well crafted (in both artistic form and their simplicity) from the collection I see on the JORD website. I like watches that don’t incorporate leather, so a wooden watch would be a great option! And I like that the makers don’t use any chemical finishes on the wood, so there’s less toxicity in the environment! I like one in particular and will have to add that to my wish list! Thanks for your review!

  77. Christina G. says:
