‘We make our watches for people who don’t just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go.’
– JORD Watches
I am excited to be partnering with JORD wood watches to allow one of my readers to win $100 toward their very own JORD watch. Do we need to say it louder for the people in the back?? YOU COULD WIN $100 TOWARD YOUR OWN STUNNING WOOD WATCH. Wood watches are SO the thing now, (& hipster approved). Just for even taking the time to enter, you also automatically get 10% off an order! WOW, what a great Father’s Day gift this would make … *hint, hint, nudge, nudge* …
I am fortunate enough to remember back to the days when watches were a much more common accessory than they are now, as cell phones were not yet in existence. Having a badass way to display the time on your wrist was the way to go, and everyone wanted a watch to set them apart from everyone else.
It’s been (many) years since those days, and watches aren’t typically something I strut anymore. But, recently a wooden watch company called JORD reached out to me about their product, and I’m totally loving it you guys!
JORD’s Unique Wooden Watches
The Cora Zebrawood & Rose was definitely the watch that stuck out to me, as I’m automatically drawn to soft pink and orange colorful hues. (Not to mention it would match a lot of my outfits). The coral color is such a great accent to the wood grains of the Zebrawood, it truly is a beautiful and sophisticated color combination. PLUS there are little crystals around the perimeter giving it a nice multidimensional, shiny touch. #CLASSY #OhYouFancyHuh
- Sapphire crystal glass (second to only diamond in hardness)
- Swarovski crystal markers (GREAT compliment to a unique women’s watch)
- Natural Zebrawood that is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils
- The Cora is splash-proof (but don’t submerge in water please!)
Fun Fact: JORD is prounounced YOAD, as in TOAD – but with a Y. #MindBlown
JORD wooden watches range from $139 – $395 in cost, making them a mid to high range product in the watch category. But it’s all in the quality of that watch, in which makes it a great piece to invest in. I also really feel like watches (and the use of WOOD in fashion) are so underrated these days. It adds such a great handcrafted compliment to your day. Let me tell you my top 5 reasons why I fell in love with JORD watches.
5 Reasons Why I love My Unique JORD Wooden Watch.
1. It’s all in the craftsmanship!
All of JORD watches are handcrafted from natural wood sources such as Maple, Bamboo, Zebrawood, Sandalwood, and Koa. Not to mention, JORD watches are also made right here in the USA. JORD actually means ‘Earth’, and was started in 2013 out of Missouri. The watches are made with a scratch free glass and a stainless steel clasp. The natural grains of the wood are highlighted in every piece. For those that typically have skin sensitivities, these products would be great option for you!
Side Note: With this craftsmanship comes some responsibility people! Wood watches need to be cared for and treated to preserve them over time. I also wouldn’t recommend wearing this to the gym and getting it all full of your sweat and toxins.
2. Sustainability, in EVERY product.
It’s WOOD instead of heavy metals or nasty plastics … what more is there really to say? For real though, all of their wood is sustainable sourced. The materials are raw with a refined design. All of their wood is 100% natural and does not have toxic chemicals used to treat or protect the wood. (As you may already know, I’m SO FOR things without toxic chemicals.)
3. So LIGHT weight.
Seriously though, I don’t think I was even expecting it to be that light! Usually ‘fancy’ watches are known for being so heavy and dragging on your wrist, but this … THIS is so light you don’t even really notice it’s there. It’s a refreshing take on a timeless classic, (and it’s definitely all thanks to the woodwork). And I don’t know about you, but I sure don’t want to be lugging around a heavy accessory. It’s so refreshing to have a lightweight and unique women’s watch accessory!

4. Automatic, no battery required!
It just makes everything so much easier when you don’t have to worry about when your battery is going to die, if it’s going to die in a critical moment when you really need to know the time, or hit you with additional costs for more batteries. It’s a self-winding automatic watch, and it’s just so simple!
5. How JORD presents themselves.
Right from the start, your watch arrives in a beautiful large wooden box, striking you with its stunning cosmopolitan appearance before you even get it out of the box. (The box even has a bonus tray on the bottom so you can store all your parts and pieces!) Everything is just presented with such poise and class, you can’t help but gain 10 points straight to your confidence scale just for putting the watch on. JORD is all about premium wood watches, and the quality is very obvious.
I’ve already gotten so many comments on my beautiful JORD watch, I’m so glad I’m able to share this product with the rest of you. This is a watch that will LAST and you will be able to wear for years to come, (and it isn’t going to go out of style either, it seriously goes with everything!) Be sure to check them out! It really would make a great gift for anyone you know, or even as a great gift for yourself. Father’s Day is coming up, after all.
Go on, #YouDeserveIt.
