I recently had the pleasure of working with JORD watches, an American company passionate about the beautiful wood watches they craft. When my Cora series watch arrived in the post I instantly fell in love with it. I can’t wait to tell you more about why their watches are so unique.
Who are JORD Watches?
Based in St Louis, Missouri the company designs and fabricates all of its watches there. They constantly strive to develop new, intricate designs for their customers while simultaneously being eco-friendly. JORD primarily use natural materials from all over the world and most interestingly, use reclaimed wood to make their watches. If you didn’t already know, reclaimed wood is wood that has fallen by natural processes or wood reclaimed from furniture. It never involves cutting down trees and is therefore an amazing way of reusing wood without damaging the environment.
About my watch
I chose the Cora series Zebrawood and Turquoise watch. Zebrawood is native to West Africa and is considered a luxury hardwood. I saw the beautiful gradient on the wood combined with my favourite colour and knew the watch was for me!
I feel like the watch fits perfectly with my personal style. Of course, including my favourite colour means it’s easy to style with most of the outfits I wear. It’s also the perfect splash of colour when I’m wearing a black outfit for a meeting or an after-work cocktail.
The watch itself is stunning and the craftsmanship exquisite. The details on the face of the watch make it even more eye-catching and a unique accessory to wear. I love the small sparkly stones and the circle showing the internal movements of the mechanisms. And the surprises don’t end there! Turn it over and you’ll see the internal mechanisms of this automatic watch. Most importantly, there’s even the place and date of birth of your watch!
Would I give this watch as a gift?
As well as the attention to detail, the customer service at JORD is absolutely fantastic. I would definitely not hesitate to give this watch as a gift. The watch comes in a beautiful wooden box engraved with the JORD logo. It has a magnetic lid and the box itself is even vented to allow the wood to breathe. You’ll receive a pamphlet about how to take care of your watch, some oil for preservation and two microfibre cloths. The box can also be engraved with a message if you did choose to gift the watch! And lastly, JORD will create your watch based on your wrist size so it should fit you perfectly. However, just in case, they do send a few extra links in the box too!
Why my JORD watch is my new favourite accessory
My JORD watch is like no other accessory I have. It’s a luxury timepiece that is unique and that makes me feel special. It’s easy to put on and take off and the fact that it’s an automatic watch is hugely practical. The self-winding watch is easy to use and just your everyday movement is enough to make it tick. It’s the accessory I wouldn’t want to be without this Summer!
And here’s the good news, you too can get yourself a JORD watch! I’ve teamed up with JORD to offer you a $100 dollar gift card. And don’t worry friends in Europe they ship here too! All you have to do is follow this link to enter.
