I’m not going to lie, I’ve never been a huge fan of watches for myself. I love them on other people and have bought my husband a slew of them throughout our time together, but personally I am just incredibly picky about them. My husband has always been a big fan of the wood watch look however I was never able to get into it myself, always thinking it was way more of a masculine look. Then I saw Jord’s collection of feminine looking wood watches. Ranging in colors from rose, to champagne, to a pretty turquoise and so many more, their watches stood out to me right away as a watch I could totally get behind.
Upon receiving my watch, I was impressed before ever even seeing the watch itself. I am all about presentation. I prefer my food to be perfecty placed with care on a plate and I prefer my new clothes to arrive wrapped in a cute little box with tissue paper. Jord and I apparently have that in common because the presentation on this watch was just stunning. The watch comes perched on a little pillow inside a beautiful high quality wood box. The wood box even has a little drawer for your watch cleaning accessories and includes a watch cleaning starter pack. Once you get past the amazing display and study the watch for itself, there is even more to be impressed with.
One of the things that has always annoyed me about watches is that they are so difficult to take on and off. Each one has their own little version of a clasp, and I usually feel like I’m about to break the watch (or a nail) trying to take it off, eventually just asking my husband to take it off for me. The people at Jord seem to have thought of every little detail, because this watch is SO easy to remove. Push the two little side clasps in, and just like that, the watch is off.
I’ve worn my ‘Cora series- Zebrawood & Rose’ watch out and about a few times now and love the extra little touch that it effortlessly gives my outfits. Being a major fan of gold and rose gold, the rose cora matches all of my jewelry perfectly and despite my usual distate for watches, has managed to quickly become one of my go-to accessories.
As I mentioned, my husband loves wood watches, so I have bought him a couple different ones now, both from Amazon. I did research for days and finally chose ones that I thought were good quality for a fair price. One ended up breaking pretty quickly and the other is nice but nowhere near the quality that I have seen with Jord. I had always seen the Jord watches advertised but wondered if they were really worth the slight jump up in price. I can now assure you.. they totally are. From presentation, to quality, to visual appeal… Jord has figured it all out when it comes to wood watches and you really do get what you pay for.
