I received a complimentary item in exchange for my honest review.
JORD is Swedish meaning earth, soil, land. JORD watches are designed to take people back to nature and away from today’s metal & rubber.
I love unique items and items made of natural materials is always a bonus in my book. But who would ever think of making a watch out of wood? JORD did and they sent me one of their unique watches to review.
I was so intrigued by a watch being made of wood, I couldn’t wait to get it. I received the maple Ely watch and when it arrived I was very happy with the beautiful packaging and the craftsmanship.
- Hardened, Scratch-proof glass face: 26mm diameter
- Frame / bezel: 34mm diameter
- Band width: 21.5mm
- Lug ends: 40mm
- Single action locking clasp (stainless steel)
- Premium Citizen Miyota movement with date window
This watch is about the same size as most other watches and bracelets on the market. I wish there were different size choices because I have small wrists and have a hard time finding bracelets and watches to fit me. My wrists are only 6½” so this watch is too big for me. I am not sure if a jeweler will be able to size it for me but I am going to bring it in to see what they have to say. However, if you have typical sized wrists then this should fit you just fine.
Despite the watch being big, which is normal and was expected, I am very happy with its quality and would recommend it to anyone who wants something that’s a little different from what everyone else has. You can choose from a wide variety of men’s and women’s watches in several different wood tones to compliment anyone’s taste.
Come back on March 3 for your chance to win your won JORD wooden watch!
