Time is truly the greatest gift you can give to someone. It’s presence makes so much of an impact when given. Time cannot be touched, it’s felt. So what gift can you give someone, to show your token of appreciation?
This month I’m collaborating with JORD to review this watch they sent me and there’s also a giveaway for my readers (shown at the end of this post). They’ve provided me with this unique and lovely wooden watch that makes a perfect gift to anyone. I truly love mine and the timing was just perfect. I needed a watch for everyday use and using my phone to check the time has become such an inconvenience. It’s so much better to look at my wrist than shuffle through my purse.
What I really love about JORD, is that their watches are made of 100% natural wood and they don’t use toxic chemicals to treat or protect them. I’m all about keeping things natural as much as possible, from skincare to accessories, so this just fits right in to many of the things I own. They’re watches are hand crafted pieces, sustainable, made of raw material and come from different types of wood from all over the world. To name some – Sandalwood, Zebrawood, Koa, Acacia, Bamboo, Ebony and more. They have a variety of stunning collections available for both men and women. The watches are made of Sapphire Glass – a synthetic crystal, is a hard and scratch resistant material that’s stronger and more versatile than just glass. A majority of these watches are splash-proof but cannot be submerged in water. There’s also a variety of face colors to choose from.
My particular timepiece is made of Sandalwood and part of the Frankie 35 Series, called the Frankie 35 Dark Sandalwood. I chose this one because of it’s unique color and the contrast between the mint face and dark wood looks so elegant and fresh.
Features of this Frankie 35 Dark Sandalwood watch:
- sapphire crystal glass
- deployment buckle with push buttons
- case width: 35mm
- case thickness: 10.5mm
- lug ends: 45mm
- band thickness: 14mm
- band length: 160mm
The Movement (mechanism) is made of:
- Swiss Ronda Normtech Caliber 763
- display: hours – minutes – seconds
- jewel bearing: 5 jewel
- tuning fork type: quartz crystal
- frequency: 1.5 V
- accuracy: -10/+20 seconds /mo
- battery: silver oxide No.364 (equiv)
- drive system: 2-pole stepping motor
The wooden concept looks stunning and very modern. JORD watches are currently available in the shapes: round, square, rectangle and octagon. A few of my other favorites in the Women’s Collection are: Cora Zebrawood & Rose, Cora Koa & Rose Gold and the Frankie Zebrawood & Champagne. The Men’s Collection are just as stunning. They look rugged and sexy, yet sophisticated and professional. Their uniqueness will definitely draw attention.
As soon as you receive your watch in the mail, you will immediately notice the effort and care that was put into making and packaging it. I was in awe from just seeing the box it came in. It’s enclosed in a beautiful wooden box that has a built in compartment which held care and cleaning materials. The watch is carefully nestled inside and wrapped around a cushion to keep it’s form. This is definitely not a low budget piece of jewelry, it’s something you can gift to a loved one and know they will truly appreciate it. My eyes are definitely set on 2 watches I’ve already mentioned above: the Cora Zebrawood & Rose and the Cora Koa & Rose Gold. I really want to get my hands on those next. They are so beautiful, feminine and I love Rose Gold anything!!!
JORD watches will be a perfect gift for the upcoming Father’s Day. They’ll also be great as a Grad Present, Birthday Gift and would also be perfect as a Corporate Gift. The price ranges from $139 USD and up. They all come with a 1 yr Limited Warranty and ships free Worldwide. You can also request to customize your watch by getting it engraved, either on the wooden box it came in or on the backplate of the watch, for an extra fee.
