Cell phones are great for lots of things. Smart phones are even better, but for me one thing I hate about having a smart phone is that I didn’t have a watch, well not one that I want to wear every day. My excuses were that I’m hard on jewelry, as well as I have a phone who needs a watch. But the longer I did without one, the more I realized exactly how much I needed one. A watch isn’t just a time piece, but for me it’s just as expressive as my personality. That’s why I was so excited to learn about the Jord Wood Watch.
Luxury Wood Watch
If you haven’t heard about them the JORD Wood Watch is a unique timepiece which has gotten my wrist a whole lot of attention. They are hand-carved wooden watches. As a result they are each unique in their own special way. Even though it may be carved from the same wood, Maple for example, since no two pieces of wood are the same, no two watches are the same. Not only are they unique in each and every way, but they are also sustainable, for example our Bamboo watch. Bamboo is easily and quickly grown and replaced and has a number of other benefits of being used. Available in his and hers designs, I’ll be introducing you to Delmar and Cora. Yes our watches have names.
Her’s – Cora – Maple and Lavendar Wood Watch
Beautifully hand crafted with maple wood, the finish is smooth, soft and sleek. I’m hard on watches and this one so far has been able to handle it. It’s splash proof but not water proof, so I make sure to take off before I do the dishes or shower. What’s most noticeable about the Cora watch is the beautiful pinkish-purple coloring, sapphire crystal glass and Swarovski Crystal Markers. I love the mini dial near the 7 it just adds even more detail to the watch. It’s perfect for any outfit, dressy enough for dressing up but also casual enough for jeans or shorts. But it’s not just beautiful on the outside but the inside too. There’s an easy to push catch and release buckle so I don’t need to ask for helping putting the watch on or off. When you flip it over you get to see all the gears working, which is fascinating to me.
His – Delmar – Bamboo and Black Carbon
The Delmar watch has become a must wear item in our household. No matter where it is worn it gets noticed. It features scratch resistant mineral glass and a double locking fold-over clasp. One of my favorite features of the Delmar is the almost holographic image of the face. You can clearly see the silver diamond design alternating with rows of black in the above picture, but depending on where the light lands it becomes an almost solid black pattern design. The face display offers hours, minutes and seconds and the tailored look of the face and hands makes it perfect for wearing to more “professional” events or occasions as well as nice enough to wear every day. I’ll let you in on a little secret. The watches come in these beautiful hand carved boxes. I was packing for a trip and grabbed the “his” box and tossed it in my purse so I could get out the door. At the airport I pulled out the box to discover it was the Delmar not the Cora. Well I’m not a it’s only made for boys kind of girl, so I put it on. I LOVED this watch. Everywhere I went on the trip from the airport ticket agent, to the cart driver to my hotel check in to the store where I bought souvenirs mentioned the watch and pulled up the website. During a meeting break, one of the other attendees went online and bought one of their own! The Delmar is made of natural bamboo is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils. It is splash-proof but, we are totally keeping it out of the water and comes with a 1 year limited warranty.
Caring for your JORD Wood Watch
JORD advises using Lemon or orange oil extract as best for cleaning the natural wood. I’ve used the lemon and so far so good. I did have to laugh when I read “When storing this timepiece, avoid extremely hot, cold, and excessively dry/humid environments,” we live in Houston. This instruction may be a little more difficult to follow.
Join JORD this holiday season. Look for these watches as well as some “timeless” new ones.
These watches have really gotten a lot of attention. It’s not just a time piece, it’s a statement piece. That and the quality makes it the perfect gift for an anniversary, birthday or Christmas.
