Jord Wood Watches: Review and Giveaway

May 12, 2014

I haven’t worn a watch for a long time. I have sensitive skin and I find that wearing a watch can irritate it and cause a rash. This is caused by the metal back and strap of most watches so it was easier to do without. I rely on my mobile phone to tell the time, but this is not as convenient as looking at a watch. You can’t always have your phone on and it means sometimes I am late for things. I was intrigued when Jord Wood Watches got in touch to tell me about their watches. They are watches which have been hand crafted from wood.

Jord Wood Watches

Each watch is made from wood obtained from all over the world, different woods create different watches. You will find watches made from bamboo, maple, sandlewood, blackwood, cherry and teak. Each watch is unique, crafted depending on the grain of the wood meaning by wearing a Jord wood watch you have a individual fashion item.
Jord Wood Watch

I have the Ely watch in Maple which I love. It is really comfortable to wear, it is so light you can hardly feel it. I love the fact that I now always know what the time is. When it first came the watch was a little large, but it is easy to remove links to make it the correct size. All you need is a small screwdriver. I think it looks really stylish and it goes with lots of different outfits. Lots of people have remarked about it as well and are really surprised you can get a watch made from wood.

JORD have a great range of watches to choose from, you can see some of them in the widget below. I think they would make a great gift. The Ely watch costs $129 and can be purchased directly from Jord. Jord ship internationally and the shipping is very quick. The watch is splash proof but I wouldn’t advise jumping into a swimming pool whilst wearing it!
