I’ve always been a watch collector. I like good watches, and I know a good watch when I see one. So when I was approached by JORD to review a piece from their Wood watches collection I couldn’t resist the offer.
JORD was founded in 2013 to create true designer watches from natural materials. A company that is run by artists and designers who spend days creating great masterpiece for watch lovers like myself. They create luxurious, cool, and unique wooden watches for Men and Women. Each JORD watch series incorporates convention provoking natural wood with a premium quartz, chronograph, or automatic movement. JORD focus on creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle with sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living. They make their watches for individuals who don’t just have somewhere to be but have somewhere to go.
I was asked to pick a watch of my choice to review. I opted for Zebrawood & Navy which is part of the FRANKIE series. A Minimal deeply grained zebrawood and anchoring navy blue dial. Its ultra slim case is powered by Swiss movement. The sapphire crystal glass uncomplicates the face allowing it to grab focus even at a quick glance and the streamlined shaping offers style. I’m amazed at how light weight and comfortable to wear the watch it. I never thought a watch made out of wood could be elegant and fashionable.
My watch arrived in a wooden box, from which you can tell that there’s something nice in it. The attention to details that was paid to the packaging is really impressive. It comes with an instruction leaflet, cleaning cloth,and JORD preserving finishing oil (that is 100% natural). Prior to the arrival of my watch, I was asked what’s my wrist size was so they can adjust the size to my wrist. Silly me, I guessed my wrist size without measuring it and picked a 14mm, which turned out looking like only a child’s hand could fit in it. But nothing a quick visit to the watch shop couldn’t fix. So when you are ordering don’t be like me and guess your wrist size, make sure you measure your wrist with the measuring guided provided on the JORD site.
The natural zebrawood is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils. The Frankie is splash-proof but should not be submerged in water. It is advice to use lemon or orange oil extract to clean the natural wood (the body of the watch). And when storing, it’s should be kept away from direct heat, extreme cold and excessive dry and humid environments.
