JORD Wooden Watch Review + Giveaway!

There is something timeless about a watch,  no matter what gadget we have sometimes it's nicer to do things the old fashioned way. For example, I love using pen and paper for jotting down notes and lists, I literally have notepads all over the house.

No matter how much technology evolves there is always something timeless and classic about a watch.  A couple of weeks ago I was sent a watch from JORD, this company produces some of the most exquisite wooden watches I have ever seen. I didn't even realise that wooden watches where a thing.

I was allowed to choose from a selection of watches and so I decided to go for an all rounder, something that can be worn with anything, ready for any occasion or style, yet still beautiful in its own right.

After waiting for less than a week a beautifully presented wooden box arrived, and inside on a watch pillow was my gorgeous Maple watch from their fieldcrest series.

JORD  are a company that and I quote "Focus on creating timepieces that are modelled after a modern lifestyle". I really like that, and you can see that they trying to portray that modern style with their choice of designs and materials, but also keeping it classic to the style of how watches have always been seen.

All of their watches are made from sustainable materials. If you look on their website it lists all the materials used and even goes into detail on its sustainability, source, texture and even strength. 

The watch has a link style strap with a metal clasp,  this means that the watch can move easily to your wrist's natural movement without restricting you. The clasp on the watch is different to other watches I have used, but in my opinion it's probably one of the best designs I have seen. I can put my watch on easy, with just one hand and no fiddly bits! 

The face of the watch has no numbers, but I actually prefer this style. The little metal indicators are perfect and I think simple is better in this design. I think adding numbers would take away the focus from the wooden backplate.

Wearing wise, the watch was super comfy and extremely light in weight. I was actually surprised by this as I was expecting it to be heavy. However the watch sat really nicely on my wrist, the sizing was perfect, not too loose and not too tight.
I have worn it during my typical every days, which involves looking after two hyperactive children, our pets and all the glamorous jobs of being a mum. On top of that I wore it on a trip I took with the boys and even after everything it's still in one piece without a mark or scratch. I am very impressed with the overall lasting and quality of the watch, because I have been putting it through its paces.

 Ordering a JORD watch was really easy, they sent me a sizing guide so that I could get the right measurement for me. They also added a couple extra links in the box just incase I needed them.

My delivery was fast considering it was being shipped from the US which was a nice surprise.
JORD are actually happy to ship their watches worldwide, so if you are outside of the USA like I am you can still get yourself a watch.
JORD cater to both men and women with a large selection of designs and wood finishes to choose from , there is something for everyone and these watches would make excellent gifts to your loved ones.
