I was very excited to collaborate with JORD Wood Watches, since it’s September and my husband’s birthday is around the corner I thought this would make a lovely gift to Him as he loves watches.
JORD Wood Watches are artist designed timepieces. They are handcrafted and use wide range of raw materials with a modern touch. They also take care to use sustainable wood in all their watches. JORD watches use sapphire crystal glass instead of actual glass on all their watches.
I will add links to the watch I chose and also add links for the full range of Men’s and Women’s Wood watches. There are too many beautiful timepiece designs to look through on their website!
Why I chose DOVER series Zebrawood & Dark Sandalwood?
Tailor made or tailored to fit, your moves are always measured. The details are essential to the overall design of your days because when all the angles are worked out, the path is clear. Determined and purposeful, your time is never wasted. The synchronized style you seek can be found in our Dover Zebrawood & Dark Sandalwood, a striking study in complex and calculated design.
Dover series was unique for me: I chose the Zebrawood & Dark Sandalwood because I was visually drawn by its color tone. The frame and the wood strap are hand crafted with natural Zebrawood & Dark Sandalwood. Their watches, which feature hand-crafted bands made of various wood, manage to find a balance between earthy and elegant. JORD Watch is cool!

The JORD Wood Watches packaging comes along with a beautifully crafted wooden box. It’s a lovely accessory on it’s own.
To get into more detail to the watch’s fine details, The J for JORD is prominently found on the clip of the watch, the back of the watch and the crown to adjust the tome needle. This brand is best crafted and instantly recognizable when worn.
The JORD Wood Watch is clutched to a dainty pillow, additional wooden links for the strap, standard instructions and a one year warranty card. Upon placing the order for your watch, you will be given an option for sizing the watch to fit your wrist perfectly.
For me, the highlight is of course the partially open heart construction, the centre of the face is cut away allowing anyone to peer inside the inner mechanics of the watch, its distinctive parts dutifully performing their individual tasks without fail. Flipping the watch over, the back is completely uncovered allowing you to view inside without obstruction.
The Dover requires an initial winding, but then daily activity keeps it ticking if it’s worn for 8 hours a day or so.
Since it’s a light weight of the watch, that means there is no need to strain on hand, making it it a perfect accessory to bring out. Wearing the watch on multiple occasions with a variety of outfits; it has proven to be quite the centre piece, equally at home with a smart outfit as well as a more casual attire. It is also very lightweight, so much in fact that you can barely can feel it on your wrist.
In conclusion, I’m very happy with the JORD Dover series Zebrawood & Dark Sandalwood, it has surpassed even my lofty expectations from a quality time piece! From the moment you hold it in your hands, it’s clear each item has been filled with nothing less than pure love and devotion to ensure you get a top of the range product.
