I really know little about watches so I will do my best to tell you what I know about them. Anyway I am just happy to have found such a unique time piece that I can share with my audience, especially for those looking for special gifts for the ones they love or for those that are looking for something a little different to style with their outfits.
JORD is based in St. Louis, Missouri and they create watches beautiful, durable and one-of-a-kind pieces. The styles are very broad, so there is something for everyone’s taste. Their watches are handcrafted with sustainable wood from all over the world, including acacia, bamboo, ebony, golden champor, koa, maple, olive and more.
The company let me pick out a watch from their collection. This was a tough job to do, because they have so many excellent watches to choose from.
I chose the Reece series Golden Camphor & Khaki. Isn’t it gorgeous? I fell in love with the contrast between the warm wood tone and the khaki face, they really compliment each other well. There are so many women’s styles to choose from, but I chose this design because it was cool and elegant looking.
Self-assurance is your foundation, style your passion. Stimulate them both with golden camphor tones and dense sandalwood hues. Straight edged angles create a powerful profile, further accented by the elegant metallic face. Wear a timepiece that represents you, the Reece Golden Camphor & Khaki.
My watch was delivered in a cool black box. I was so excited to see what was inside. Upon opening it, I was welcomed by a beautiful hand-carved wooden box.
The first thing I noticed was the good smell of natural wood, then I took a look at the watch and it was love at first sight. My watch is even more beautiful than I imagined. The wood have a light brown finish with shades of grey & olive green, creating a golden hue, which made it truly unique.
The watch came wrapped around a pillow with the JORD logo. I picked up the watch and I couldn’t believe how lightweight it was. It fit with a stainless steel clasp with buttons on each side. I was totally impressed with the details of everything. Jord watches are handcrafted and use range of raw materials. JORD takes care to use sustainable wood in all their watches that is not red listed as endangered or threatened species.
They use sapphire crystal glass, mechanically, it is second only to diamond as the hardest and most scratch resistant materials on earth. It also has a very high modulus of elasticity and tensile strength, making it extremely versatile and resistant to impact/abrasion.
JORD uses 100% natural wood in their products so it is important to take care of the wood as best as possible. There are optional oils and dehumidifying packs that are sold with the watches which will help keep the watch looking its best and lasting as long as possible. All watches warranty 1 year.
The prices vary depending on what watch you would like to buy but range from about $139 – $395 USD not including any additional charges for things like engraving, shipping or wood care products.
