“Moments are bigger than minutes, and your watch should tell more than time.”
Thank you JORD for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
As they say on their website, “We make our watches for people who don’t just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go.” JORD is a company focused on sustainability and efficiency, all while creating a fun and beautiful product.
JORD makes gorgeous wooden watches for both men and women in a range of styles. I chose the Dark Sandalwood and Mint watch from the Frankie 35 series, as I was instantly drawn to the contrast of the dark wooden band with the colorful mint face.
Let’s first talk about the packing. I’m a sucker for fun and creative packaging. How gorgeous is this box? It did a great job of protecting my watch during shipment, and it will definitely be reused around my house as a fun storage option!
The watch itself is fantastic. I love the fun mint color of the face against the dark wood. The watch is actually very light, which is a nice surprise! As JORD says, their watches are splash proof, not water proof. After getting some water splashed on it while doing the dishes, the watch totally held up and still looks great.
All watches are custom made to fit your wrist. No, really! When you place an order, you need to measure your wrist and send in your measurements. Tip: don’t round up to give yourself extra room. I was tempted to do that because I hate when my watch feels too tight. With a true-to-size measurement, the watch sits comfortably on my wrist.
Why I love it:
- JORD is an awesome company whose values totally align to my own.
- What a unique concept! There are several different watch styles (find them here), so there’s definitely something for everyone.
- The watches are made from different types of beautiful wood and sustainable products.
- Since wood is a natural product, I’m comfortable wearing it all day on my sensitive skin.
- I love that the watch is custom sized. That extra little detail makes it feel more special.
- There is an easy opening mechanism metal clasp, but it’s secure enough that it won’t open unintentionally.
- The wooden band is very comfortable to wear. It doesn’t pull any hair or stick to skin like plastic sometimes does.
- The watch can be dressed up or down. I love how it looked dressed up over the holidays, and it adds a nice pop of color to those every day outfits.
- It has a scratch proof glass face! That’s great news for the slightly clumsier people out there (me!)
- FREE world wide shipping. And fast! My watch shipped from the US and arrived in France within about a week.
