Jord Watches approached me to do an unbiased review on their watches. I was so excited for this opportunity because they are such a unique item. Wood isn’t really seen much in the fashion world other than bag handles and winter coat toggles. The market is very much into sustainability and eco friendly products, so their watches being wooden is a bonus, especially as they are such beautiful watches.
I received a Frankie series watch in dark sandalwood and smoke. When ordering the watch I was given instructions to measure my wrist so the watch would fit perfectly. I have quite small wrists so my measurements are small, I was a little worried at first as the faces on the watch are fairly large in size but I needn’t have worried I love it and it looks so good on.
I am one to love grey and rose gold if you haven’t notice. The face is so pretty and the colours tie together so well. You wouldn’t expect the face to be like this on a wooden watch, but some how it fits so well with the wood. It also brings the dressy bit out in this watch. I would say wood can be quite masculine but the colours of the rose gold and grey really bring the girlyness out in the watch. It is presented in a lovely wooden box to.
The watch comes with the additional wooden links in the box, which would help if at anytime you needed to add more links, the way this watch fastens together is a way I haven’t seen a watch fasten before but its so easy to put on and comfy to wear. I was surprised how large/ chunky it seems initially but now when I wear it, I can’t even tell I have it on. Normally watches have clasps that separate the straps. On this watch you just push the sides of the clasp and both straps open apart big enough for the watch to be taken off.
I wear a lot of blues and earthy tones which really fits well with this watch. You can wear this with anything really but I would say these tones suit the watch well.
JORD is a Swedish word meaning earth, soil or land, so highlighting natural elements is a defined priority of the brand. Some of the sustainably-harvested woods used to create the watches include bamboo, maple, sandalwood, blackwood, cherry and teak. The glass is also scratch-proof which really good. Most watches come in a series of wood colors and styles, and there are several models to choose from – all at their own price level. These nature-celebrating watches could easily be considered a luxury item, ranging from $120 to $250.
The watch isn’t completely water safe, though you don’t need to worry about getting a splash on it. It’s untreated wood, so it expands when it gets really wet so it needs to be kept dry and make sure to keep it clean. You can keep your watch clean by combining a little olive oil and lemon juice and applying it with a soft cloth or use the natural oil that’s supplied with the watch. I tend to take mine off when going to the bathroom or washing my hands but on occasions I have forgotten a little splash is ok, but I prefer to remove it just to be safe.
