As you know product features aren’t something we do often on this blog, however there are sometimes those occasions which we simply cannot refuse, this was one of them.
We were invited to introduce Jord wooden watches and were blown away not just by the style and quality of these timepieces, but the ethos of such a lovely family run company. Locally owned and based in St Louis, Missouri Jord design and manufacture watches from real wood. All the wood used is sustainably sourced from around the world, allowing Jord to create some truly beautifully crafted pieces. We were intrigued as to how a wooden watch would feel to wear and delighted to discover it was light weight, smooth finished and so easy to wear. The wood also gives a lovely warmth in contrast to the usual metal watches, nor does it pinch like some metal straps can. In addition it is a great option for vegans who are looking for an alternative to leather straps. It also carried that lovely fresh, wood scent.
The watch chosen is from the 94a series in red sandalwood with brushed steel and red check dial, including a date mechanism. All Jord watches are unisex, James is the main watch wearer out of the two of us but I have tried on the watch too and it would make an equally attractive chunky ladies watch. Jord have a wonderful range which I do recommend checking out, they have lots of wood and face colour options not to mention designs. Jord take just as much care and pride in their packaging, ensuring each watch comes in a stunning wooded presentation case, making it a wonderful gift idea too.
If you are on Instagram you can find inspiration searching the #JordWatch hashtag and their account @woodwatches_com. What more can we say, we really were bowled over by Jord and look forward to sharing more styling options in the future.
