A Jord Wood Watch #GiftIdea

I hadn't worn a watch since my Casio died about 5 years ago. I loved it because it was easy to read, and also had a night light. I didn't feel inclined to get another one, however, because I started using my phone to get the time. But guess what? A phone isn't as easily accessible as all that! You have to get it out of your pocket, pick it up off the desk, or get it out of your purse and then turn on the display to get the time. In contrast, there's nothing easier than a flick of the wrist and a glance down to get the time when you're wearing a watch. 
Then in October, Jord was kind enough to contact me to see if I might like to review one of their watches. Um...hold on, let me check my busy schedule....yep, looks like I'm good for a watch review! (Squeeeee!!) Especially a wood watch review! They just look so distinctive and I had actually been meaning to contact them because I've  seen the posts about Jord everywhere. It seems that one can't take a bad picture of a Jord Watch. They are absolutely stunning!


I like simplicity in accessories and really don't switch them out too much! I wanted a neutral watch, one that I could wear with most anything, whether it was out playing disc golf with my husband, or heading out to church on a Sunday. I want a look that I can pair with many looks. I chose the Fieldcrest Series in green sandalwood, for that reason. 

The series comes standard, as do all Jord watches, with quartz crystal inner workings, hand finished woods, scratch-resistant mineral glass, and are splash-proof. Ranging in price from $129 - $395, there is a style, wood, and color for everyone! Men love the look as well!


A couple things that I particularly like about this watch is the light-weight feel. I often forget to take it off at night because I don't even feel it on my wrist, which is a good thing. Another thing is that it never gets sweaty, sticky, or smelly. When I had a leather band with my former watch, the leather got a funky smell to it after I had worn it and it had absorbed perspiration and dampness. Wood doesn't do that. As a matter of fact, there is a faint fragrance to the wood, that is distinctive to that particular type of wood! I'm thrilled because I have a keen sense of smell and the smell of the leather wristband always bothered. I feel like I'm going to love going back to depending on a watch to check the time! It's the perfect must-have accessory! Follow Jord on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, G+, Pinterest, and Vine!
