I’m so exited for today’s post and review! I finally managed to talk Dennis into appearing on the blog, and for that I should thank JORD Watches :) but let me start in the beginning…
In the first week of May I was contacted by JORD, a US company that is based in St. Louis, Missouri. They offered to send me one of their wood watches for review. I looked through their catalog and I noticed that they have only men’s and unisex watches while I usually prefer more “feminine looking” accessories. And then I thought about Dennis, my husband. I showed him JORD selection of watches on their website and asked him to help me with the review by being a model. Just like me, Dennis had never seen wood watches before, so he agreed, mostly out of curiosity. Together we chose a model we both liked, a Chocolate wood watch from JORD 94A series.
In about two weeks we got this cute wooden box:
We opened it and saw the watch on a small jewellery pillow with JORD logo:
Here’s the watch and the pillow a bit closer:
Like I said, before that I’d seen wooden watches only on Pinterest and other fashion websites, never in real life. I thought it’s very original and unique to design/make wood watches that are environmental friendly and stylish at the same time.
JORD watches are splash proof. That doesn’t mean that you can take a shower wearing the watch or throw it in the washing machine, but you don’t have to worry if the watch gets splashed here and there. JORD promises that a few drops of water now and then won’t ruin it.
Here’s a pic of the back:
It’s said there that the watch is made of 100% natural wood in China, and that it’s designed in St. Louis. Unfortunately, I don’t know what kind of wood it is. The quality of the JORD watch we were sent is very good, so far I haven’t found any faults with it.
The glass is made of scratch resistant mineral, and the watch’s heart/brains is Citizen Miyota Quartz.
Now, when I showed you the watch, let me add a couple of pics of Dennis wearing it :) Here he is with Kernel, note how nicely the chocolate wood color of the watch matches Kernel’s fur!
… and here Dennis is playing his djembe from Ghana:
One more picture, where he’s in the bedroom having the so-needed and well-deserved rest after the photo set. Did I mention that he hates to be photographed? :)
That’s it! No nails nor nail art this time, sorry, but I hope you enjoyed the post. If you like the idea of eco-stylish wood watches, you can find many of them here.
Thank you for looking! See you soon ♥
