Jord is a watch brand that originates from St. Louis, Missouri in the US and they’re not just any watch brand.. all of their watches are made from natural and sustainably sourced wood from around the world. I love watches, but I’ve never seen a wooden watch before so when I saw the stunning range of Jord watches, I really did fall in love with them. There are quite an extensive range of styles to choose from, but I opted for the Jord 94A Chocolate Wood Watch which retails for $159/£102 on the Jord website, which I think is pretty great value for such a beautiful and unique watch.
Jord ship internationally, and they aim to ship orders within 1-3 days via priority USPS shipping. When ordering your watch, you have the ability to have the watch resized for a $10 fee and they offer some really small and really large sizes so they’ll suit all sizes and I think $10 is very reasonable, and you’ll know that your watch will be the perfect fit once it arrives.
Once your watch arrives, it is packaged within an amazing pale wooden box with a sliding lid which I love, with the watch nestled inside over a little jewellery pillow. The presentation of Jord’s watches is incredible, and they’d make for the most perfect gift as they’re so well presented.
The Jord 94A Wood Watch is available in a total of three different colour designs, and I chose the Chocolate style as it was the nicest coloured wood in my opinion, and I thought it would wear well and wouldn’t show signs of wear as much as the paler woods.
On the Jord website, the Chocolate style does look like a chocolate colour, but the watch is actually darker than chocolate; I’d describe it as more of a dark walnut, but that’s the beauty of Jord watches – every single watch is individually unique due to their natural wood markings.
I chose the Jord 94A Chocolate Wood Watch, as I love square watch dials but when it arrived, it was bigger and thicker than I anticipated and it didn’t really suit me.. it’s definitely quite a manly watch, although I do love how some females have carried it off on the Jord photo section.
I absolutely adore the design of the watch, and everything about it but the depth of the dial was just a little too thick for my personal preference but Rob is delighted as I’ve given it to him and it does look a lot nicer on him.
The Jord 94A Chocolate Wood Watch features a dark blue/green gridded centre with a silver surround and a date window. I really liked the ‘C’ design of the glass of this particular style, and the glass is scratch-proof too, for additional peace of mind.
Every part of the Jord 94A Chocolate Wood Watch is of impeccable quality.. from the double locking stainless steel clasp, the winding mechanism, the Citizen Miyota Quartz Movement and super smooth wooden links. I knew the watch was going to be beautiful from the images on the website, but I really was bowled over by it once it arrived.
The Jord Wooden Watches are all splash-proof, but they mustn’t be submerged in water for obvious reasons. I think the Jord Watches are really lovely, and I particularly like that every watch differs in terms of colour and grain so each watch is truly unique. I would really recommend taking a look at their range of watches if you’re in the market for a new watch, as they’re all seriously stunning..
