To say that I am unique would be an understatement – unique sense of humor, unique fashion sense, unique obsession with French fries, even this blog is unique! So of course, I’m always looking for the next unique thing to express my style. So when I stumbled upon JORD watches, I knew I had found something that no one else on my block would be rocking.
JORD is a line of men’s watches and women’s watches made from 8 different types of wood, with some of the faces being made from different types of glass such as sapphire and rose gold. The color of each watch is the natural color of the wood. The watch is conditioned with natural Tung oil to prevent cracking – which is great to know if you are just as klutzy as me (there’s a reason my personal trainer nicknamed me “Fall.”)
The watches all have a very modern feel and are handcrafted by a team of designers and artists. The watch is equipped with a battery operated quartz movement. Real quartz is used to regulate the electrical frequency, which helps keep more accurate time. As they state, their watches are made for those who value sustainability, efficiency and experiential living. They are for those who “don’t just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go.” As a gal always on the go, I’m a huge fan of their philosophy. Being late is my pet peeve – so this watch not only keeps me on time, it keeps me stylish. And it ups my cool factor, which isn’t always the easiest thing to do.
There were so many gorgeous options, that it was hard to choose! Do I go with the Zebrawood and Navy Frankie? Or the Dark Sandalwood Fieldcrest? The Dark Sandalwood and Emerald Frankie? Someone help a confused fashionista out!!

I ended up choosing the Zebrawood and Maple Fieldcrest, because I really liked that the whole look was wood without any glass, and could be paired with so many different outfit options.
My watch arrived in a gorgeous wooden box, which being the pack rat that I am, I will never get rid of, and find some use for. I mean, you don’t just discard a beautiful piece of work like this! The watch was beautifully displayed and came with a nice little wipey (does anyone know what those things are actually called??) for the face of the watch.
I couldn’t wait to wear it and am already so in love with my JORD watch! Not only that, but I truly love what the company stands for. As their mission states, “The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.”
